If you look closely in the left corner there is a series of silver lattice of some sort. Possibly work scaffolding but it looks like it is intended for a more permanent use.

How are you able to tell - as far as that image shows, it looks like portable metal pieces to me...

I can't tell for sure but they look thicker and a little more substantial to me then the typical temporary construction scaffolding. They also appear to be more beam rather the the tubular form that is usually used on portable ones to make them easier to move.

That is the games warehouse, which is also kind of a main entertainment storage venue. It is entertainment material. They are not organized at all. They leave junk all over the park. DarKoaster is being staged either at the maintenance building behind Caribou or in the Festhaus parking lot across from that games warehouse.

Even without the speculative components of the contents of the layout, the track shape, the recent history working with Intamin, and the long stint without working with Zierer, I am pretty sure there was early documentation that was clearly between the park and Intamin.

Typically when @Zachary is comfortable definitively saying "it will be Intamin" in the article, there is more to it than "they worked with Intamin recently and it has a switch track". I remember some documentation being talked about though I can't remember if it was properly leaked out for public view.

According to Kevin the park is strongly considering a new ride in Dark Kastle and the track is for a coaster themed maze for Howl-O-Scream you guys should really stop spreading these wild stories.

any speculation that this is zierer is wrong, note the added stripe on the rails, this is a common intamin characteristic that pantheon also had. its an intamin
So Intamin is building the park's new Howl-O-Scream maze? I mean I know they are diverse in their offerings but that seems like a stretch

Tbh, I wasn't speculating manufacturer, just curious how there was certainty without definitive proof. Also, if you were to look at a random section of VB track you may think it was some kind of Intamin ride...
