Photo TR: Wodan media day at Europa Park (new GCI coaster)

Postby Hhappy » Wed Mar 28, 2012 10:08 am

So today was the media day for Wodan Timburcoaster at Europapark.

After a nice presentation it was time to check out the coaster. It's a GCI, it has a good swooping first drop and a nice pacing for the first half. The second half ain't dull but has plenty of twists and turns.

You have to be 1.20m to ride this ride and it feels like a fun fast paced family ride. My first run (which was on one of the first trains) felt like ok.. but the second (which was one of the last trains) was way more impressive (and it was all the way in the back)
There are spots on this ride where you could wish for more speed (to get more air) but remember.. it's a GCI ;)

This ride, i'm pretty sure, is going to be a hit with the fans and families and is another nice addition to the park.
The queue area is just amazing and something you would expect from Europapark.

I see plenty of possibilities for ride interaction between Wodan, Blue Fire and Atlantica Supersplash. The more photo ops the better. Some possible photo points do have netting in front of it.. but that was to be expected..

ok, enough from me at this moment, time for some pictures.
Enjoy

I'm blown away by the amount of effort that was put into this project. Simply breathtaking! This has to be the most heavily themed wooden coaster in existence.
Thanks for the awesome photos.

WOW the theming on this GCI coaster is amazing! I love what they did for the indoor queue and outdoor statues are just amazing as well.

Can I park my donkey here?

Hanno, as always, your photos are amazing. I cannot believe all the theming the park has put into this coaster. I really look forward to riding this coaster this summer.

I love this report because of the beautiful pictures and the ride looks awesome!

I hate this trip report because it makes me want to go to Europa again so badly!
