I thought about that too. But then I remembered, this has been built mainly
for families with small children, who normally don't get this kind of high end
coaster experience, like we do, only Bigger, Taller, Faster...etc.

I think the adrenalin rush of just BEING ON this coaster would be enough
'stimulus' for these kids, judging by the laughter I heard on the video.

And there is some scenery around this park, when you can catch a glimpse
of it, from that Fancy Pants Car there! :airtime: :airtimer:

Then again... maybe they could Steampunk up the columns & supports that hold it all up, hmm?

Hunderfossen have posted a cool timelapse video of the construction of the ride.

So impressed by the trains :lover: Does Zierer offer train design service for other coaster manufacturers?

Also, is it the first time in the history that a lead car takes two sets of wheels?

^ Any Manufacturer is Capable of Building the Fiberglass Car Body Created by the Designer, for the right price. I think it may be the first Train to have a 2 Axle, 4 Bogie, Lead Car.

I hope they plant grass beneath the ride, I would hate for it to look anything near like this.

I also hope they will fix the wall of the station out toward the coaster a bit more. Hopefully in the future they can expand the area around the coaster with more rides/activities so it won't feel so "out in the woods placed".

^ Those would be Dummy Locomotives, but I see how the argument they are similar can be made.

Well, I thought this was pretty cool so I figured I'd share it here. Every winter they open Hunderfossen Vinterpark on weekends in February and early March, where the park turns into a winter wonderland filled with magic and fairytales. The park put together a lovely little video, showing what they have to offer during this event. For a small family park it looks like a really cool event! (pun intended)
