Official Shambhala Testing Video

Spain's PortAventura Theme Park has released a new video of their soon-to-open B&M mega coaster, Shambhala, taking some test laps at the park.  We've seen the ride in detail before, and as if that wasn't impressive enough this video will really push things over the top.

A certain visual highlight of the coaster is the unique helix that Shambhala utilizes to turn the trains around through the ride.  The above shot gives an idea of the view from the ground, but doesn't fully show the element's truly twisted (and tall!) nature.

With an opening date creeping closer (May 12th) we will soon be able to see even more of the heavy theming that has gone into the coaster's station and support areas.  Looking forward to that!
