well of course it goes at certain speed in 2.5 seconds.... which is freaking amazing. It has a loop. Has a corkscrew.. and it spins. That sounds very interesting

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

It's obviously a launched spinning inverted wooden Aquatrax.

^Got to admit, that was pretty good for a 12-year-old. I think you may have been the first one to mention aquatrax.

Anyway, I always knew Mack owned Europa park, but never new they built all but one of their coasters. Is this the only amusement park owned by a manufacturing company?

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Wow things go fast, saw the banners in the park last saturday..
Big sign near the entrance off to the left, says basically what's
already been said, the background shows a village though..
Like something that was in the movie The Village, those types
of buildings.... no clue if that might hint to the coaster or the
part of the park that's being built next...

I don't know, but I can honestly say that I haven't heard of any other park owned by a ride manufacturer.

Someone said to me on the Europe trip that even though Silver Star is B&M manufactured, Mack designed the layout and then gave the plans over to B&M to work out the finer details. I'm not sure if this true or not.

As for the teaser ads, I think they are more likely designed to induce wild speculation rather than to hint at what the ride might be.

All that seems pretty certain is that it will be launched and the first coaster at Europa with inversions.

Can I park my donkey here?

yeah it surely will be.... i have a friend which life near waldkirch germany, where Macks manufactures his coasters. the last days he has seen the new rails which are seen on this ad:

the rails were in a rough status and were not painted, but they were surely the same ones like seen on this picture! (hope its okay that i post this picture here a second time... sorry to the admin for the last new topic!!)


i hope this coaster will have controlled turning trains and a dark ride part...(have you seen the lamp in the hand of the women) and Mr. Mack said in an old interview, that they build sth. special thrilling with a darkride part. But the track design in the background looks really nice.

the translation of the text, hope its right: "discover the pure energy! - the new rollercoaster 2009"

I'm actually pretty excited about this. Even though I'm not the biggest fan of Silver Star, I still really like it and think that Europa has one of the best coaster/ride line ups in the world.

This just gives me yet another reason to go back!

Agreed. Europa was one of the best park experiences I've had. If they have this ride open and working reliably enough by next June I might head out to Europa either before or after the next 2009 TPR trip.
