If this does have the inverted drop, it definitely will be over used. It was meant to be Swarm's signature gimmick but now that it is used around the world, no-one will bother travelling to Thorpe for the drop. Merlin will lose out if this happens.

Those pictures make this ride look very compact and very squished in next to all the other rides.

Double Post but I have found the official plans for this ride and annoyingly it will have the inverted drop. :( The rest of the ride looks fun though.

Something I am surprised about is that Heide Park is also owned by Merlin Entertainment like Thorpe, so I wonder why they didn't stop them from using Swarm's signature inversion.
Anyway the layout looks good, and I wonder how it will compare with the other two European Wing Coasters.

I think I am more surprised by inversions 4 and 5 which I think is being called an Inclined Pretzel Loop, I think layout wise this coaster is going to be a good investment, but I am disappointed that it is having the inverted drop.

Only just noticed that pretzel! That looks amazingly fun. Adds even more to this great ride.

Oh Wow! That looks amazing. This is definitely added to the reasons to drag myself over to Germany at some point.

Heide Park have officially announced that their 2014 Wing Coaster will have 5 Inversions, 8 near-misses, and a high point of 131.3ft, 4ft higher than Thorpe Park's Swarm which explains why it's top speed is is 5mph faster at 62mph. It will also have two trains.

Whoever has designed this coaster for Heide Park could have used a bit more imagination in designing the first drop, but it still looks like it will be an awesome coaster and I love the inclined pretzel loop element.

More construction has been happening on the Heide Park site, the turn around after the 3rd inversion is now being erected.

I can't believe how fast this is going up, but something is bugging me, normally most B&M coasters go up from the breakrun to breakrun and do the layout in the correct order, but this is clearly not being done like that and I am really curious as to why it is going up in no particular order.

The opening section to this inclined pretzel loop element looks quite nice.
