I could SWEAR I had seen something last year that DiVertical was to be closed?
but you rode it and have pics. . so I take it that the ride is still operating? (even with only two boats).


That was a rumour that was going around for quite a bit a few years after it opened. Back then, the ride was a real maintenance nightmare, and it didn't perform as well as the park would've wanted it to, and there was an articleposted on Miraforever.it, which highlighted its many issues and suggested its possible removal. That article apparently didn't end up meaning anything, since the park spent a lot of resources in trying to improve the ride, so whether we like it or not (I personally don't), it's staying.
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:

Great TR, I always thought it was kinda a shame that they built divertical as their third big coaster. I frankly don't get the concept, why spend ten's of millions of dollars on a ride that looks like a thrill ride (with a height restriction to match), but ends up being a really tall, intimidating looking family ride. I mean if they'd gotten another world class ride, they'd then, probably, could've had the best coaster line-up of any in park in Europe... Oh well :lmao:

I've got a question about the fast pass system. In earlier trip reports, Robb and others always mentioned the amazing fast pass system. Where you'd have front off the line access instantly and could choose your seat as well. Has this system been changed? You mentioned it worked well for other guests as well, but just curious if it's still as awesome as it was.
