Yeah, not happy with the trains either, but overall looks like a nice add for Parc Asterix.
I'm looking forward to seeing it with finished scenery and fx. I also hope they do put a lot of trees/bushes to hide the parking and ride maintenance building.

I Love Donkeys!

There's been an accident at Parc Asterix involving Oxygénarium, their tube-style flume ride and five people have received minor injuries.

From the pictures and (vertical) video it looks like the fibreglass chute has split meaning a boat got stuck at the bottom and following boats piled into it which, like quite a few accidents recently, is something that shouldn't really happen at a first-world theme park.

Yikes that's quite the pile up.

Most water slides don't dispatch the next raft until it splashes down so I'm interested to know how this many rafts were sent down.

That is quite scary! I'm glad it ended well (pretty much) for everyone, this could have been a lot worse. Very surprised that so many rafts were allowed to pile up after the incident occurred.

I've seen two, maybe three rafts at a time on the slide portion of these rides before, but obviously someone screwed up here and didn't stop the lift and just kept sending more rafts!!!
