That, at least, we should all be able to agree on :)

^I would love for some of you to go back and ride it now. I mean, let's be honest, this is the park that has Goudurix, it's possible they have no clue how to maintain a steel coaster! ;)

I'll always love Scooby's Spooky coaster. Maybe it was really good because I was marathoning it with aussie girls all day haha. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who puts it in their top five.

Had a good day on sunday, and it wasn't as busy as expected, but was surprised by their loose article policy

all rides except Oziris had a "no loose articles to be left on the platform" rule - even Goudrix with it's 7 inversions of pain and death - my rucksack was flying around the seat - glad i'd put my leg through one of the straps!

Sad to hear this ride doesn't live up to its hype. Visually it is definately a site to behold and gives Montu a run for its money on themeing. At the end of the day however, it's all about the ride experience itself. :?r

I rode it last saturday - two times.. One in the morning and one around parc closing.. Total queuetime for these two runs: 3 hours...

Experience First Run:
Summary: custom SLC with barely any forces. Weird headbanging in the first drop and a very slow ride experience. I think it was about on-par with vampire in walibi belgium.

Experience around parc Closing:
My absolute #1. Awesome ride, forceful, epic rolls, nice forceful turns. Totally awesome and #1 new ride for this year in my opinion (behold, I only did 2 2012 coasters so far: dragonfly and Oz Iris)..

Asterix / B&M has a big issue to fix, this can't be right..
