If memory serves me correctly The Swarm's vertical construction also started in July, which makes sense why Merlin also started vertical construction of Heide Park's Wing Coaster in July.

I think you are wrong there. I remember my first visit to Thorpe was in August 2011 and all I could see of Swarm construction from Stealth was a lot of mud, a few cranes and a very little bit of station. Even then the 'station' may have just been a shelter for construction workers.

Yep your actually correct, even though I could of sworn it started in August, looking back through the old posts in the Coaster News section on here does show that construction began in October. To have this started so early I reckon this has to be bigger than what we originally thought.

Construction is moving nicely along at Heide Park.

Here is some stats from the park:
Length: 772m (2,532ft)
Speed: 100km/h (Roughly 62mph)
Height Restriction: 1.4m
Inversions: 5
Near Misses: 6

The park has also officially confirmed yesterday on Facebook that this would be a Wing Coaster and there possibly is going to be an announcement today with this picture and the description.

I think the first picture confirms this is going to be the fourth B&M Wing Coaster to feature Thorpe Park's Inverted Drop element, I am not really complaining as it is a lovely element, but I am starting to fear that it is going to be over used.
