Today was opening day for Krake at Heide Park in Germany.
Some info before getting to the pictures:
First dive coaster in Germany.
Hardware and theming investment of 12 million euro
Advertisement costs not included...
Track length 476 meters, height 42,5 meters, drop 41 meters.
1 splash, 1 immelmann and 1 camelback.
3 trains, 3 rows of 6 each which gives 18 riders per train
50.000 hours and 700 tonnes of steel.
Enough technical things.. time to talk about the ride..
It might look small (and yes it's not that long) but darn it. This is a fun ride.
That first drop is awesome and it felt like you have a better view (on all rows on this first drop) then when compared to the bigger US version.
Maybe it was just my impression but it felt as if the train was further down the drop compared to the bigger ones. Or maybe it was just due to the smaller train size that gave that impression.
Anyway nice addition to the park which should provide plenty of thrills for the young folks and adrenaline junkies
I thinks that's it for this time..
(sorry for the amount.. just could not make a smaller selection)
