If it isn't scheduled to open for another 3(ish) years, it seems way too soon for a crane on site. I wonder if this is for the rehab work on WoL?

I dunno... this was a pic of Tron at Shanghai in Feb of 2014 (2 years, 4 months before the ride opened)... I would think if we are ~3 years out of this coaster, we're going to need to see some sort of track work in the next few months...

It is a bad accounting practice then. As the return of getting it down will result in a roi being greater as today’s cost or lower then future cost.

For that specific aspect of the project return on investment would be lower but I think it’s probably a more complex decision than tha. Not that I would agree with how they do it.

Do we know about any work that’s been done with the GoTG actors for this ride? I remember seeing video of Chris Pratt talking about shooting scenes for M:BO well before that ride opened. I’m assuming the coaster will feature a Star-Lord AA...

Some new pictures from Vlodrop showing off a new motorized spinning train. Is this what we should expect for GotG? It's more in line with a standard car design but has a "simple" looking gimmick (simple looking, not simple to make work).

The layout is a slightly (?) updated family shuttle, so that can be ignored.

Looking at those trains, I think I can see why it might not be a super thrilling coaster (read as inversions/high speed). They sit up so high and have a (relatively) tiny base. The gimmick seems cool enough but to most it might just look like another spinner, which I'm sure Disney will make sure to tell everyone that it is not.

Edit: It also looks like FLY going into Phantasialand but turned right side up. That ride opens next year I believe so if it runs correctly, then I'd hope that means they got the bugs worked out for this system.
And for those of you that don't know what FLY looks like:
It'll be that system.

Isn't that the new Time Traveler's gimmick?

If they properly maintain it, its going to be killer. if they let it fall into disrepair ( Im looking at you Space Mountain) Then get ready for Fastpass nightmare with lines.

Reminds me of Escape from Gringotts.
