Below, I've placed some screenshots from NoLimits 2 for the Vekoma v2 Flying Coaster I am envisioning to replace DarKastle. The layout has slightly changed from my previous post regarding this. The storage track has been moved to follow directly after the station and before the Dark Ride Section brake run just before the lift, Also, I've included a World's first element, the Tilted Pretzel Loop, which is essentially the familiar Pretzel Loop tilted 30 degrees on its side, which I believe would create a feeling similar to a helix while riders ride on their back. This element immediately follows the booster launch which I have also relocated to be directly above the Station / Brake area to add another element, a station flyby directly overhead the station. It is very difficult to see in the pictures below but I am still seeing if I can get my vision out in NL2 form. As it stands now, the ride has 8 cars, 2 riders per car, 3,430 feet long, lift, drop, booster launch, and has 3 inversions. (Corkscrew, Tilted Pretzel Loop, Inline Twist)

I believe a basketball game currently occupies this space and is the old exit from DarKastle. I am thinking this to be the new entrance plaza for the ride with a bridge going right through the middle of the Tilted Pretzel Loop, which happens to be placed in the center of the ride area for a view of virtually the entire ride from one place.

The South end of the site with a flat helix and more intertwining track. I'm picturing a lot of close calls and other theming elements on this end of the ride. This site is currently behind the scenes and a parking lot, not where DarKastle is. So buildings, that could be used also as storage, would have to be placed around these turns to block the views of behind the scenes from guests riding.

Any chance to get an updated POV video, even if the buildings/theming is missing? This is incredible!
