A Gerstlauer For Galveston?

Summer 2012 is set to mark the reopening of the historic Galveston Pleasure Pier, this time the development is being created and run by Landry's, a brand known for such entertainment complexes as Kemah Boardwalk, along with several themed restaurant experiences.

In anticipation of the new park opening, a placeholder website has been created, advertising 16 different rides, along with plenty of food, games, and fun.  My interest really peaked when checking out the property's new facebook account, where some construction photos are featured.

This photo was especially interesting, as I'm sure you can understand.  What appears to be track being fabricated for a new Gerstlauer steel coaster was included, with no description or other information attached.  Still, it's about as big a hint as one could desire, and now I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of Euro-Fighter this will turn out to be - custom or a standard design.

Hopefully the Pleasure Pier will release some additional information on the rides coming next Summer - they've certainly grabbed my attention thus far!

It's probably the Euro-fighter 320+ model i can tell by the turn going into the 0-g roll.
