  1. Official footage! Includes an onride of the first drop, which looks absolutely terrifying.
  2. Now officially the tallest coaster in the Benelux. photo: Walibi
  3. Whoa. :o Today the "non inverted cobra roll" was completed. Quite an intimidating looking element. :o A few slightly older shots showing the massive area: photos: Themepark Magic, Coasterpix.com, Auquier Hadelin, VRT
  4. That sweet GeForce drop. photo: glenatii at CoastersWorld
  5. Rapscallion. Now there's a sweet name for a coaster. RCS really firing on all cylinders now. People for scale: Cobra roll: Station area: source & more: Themepark Magic
  6. Track being installed on the non-inverted cobra roll: Lifthill supports: source:
  7. This thing is going up FAST. These belong to the "non-inverted cobra roll". source:
  8. The first official construction photos: source: Walibi
  9. Track!!! The color is dark green. Which is quite unexpected, as all artwork and renders showed a red coaster. Two more photos taken this evening, showing double-spine track: photo: Emil Sempels & Floflo at coastersworld
  10. Oh man, that lift is incredible. /moves the park up on the bucket list
  11. The park has finally found a new theme for its SLC. Only took them 16 seasons. The ride will be themed to Lucky Luke from next season, and has already been repainted over the past few months. You thought Candymonium looked sweet? source:
  12. I'm guessing they had some sort of windguard over the microphone up until that point... then it flew off. Looks like a pretty sweet ride. Very fast. Relentless. Totally different from Diamondback.
  13. Using this screenshot, I made a couple quick edits which should help all of you understand this confusing area. Let's start with Rookburgh as a whole. This is all brand new: This belongs to the hotel: To give you a sense of scale: Now let's take a look at the coaster. From what we know, there will be separate load and unload stations, and there's also a short lifthill. Oh, and in case you forgot, the seats on this ride can rotate. You'll board the train seated upright like in a normal coaster, with the track behind your back. As the train starts to move, you'll basically be going sideways. At the top of the lifthill, the seats rotate 90° to align you with the track. Fellow member MrRC made a NoLimits animation of this (link): Here's where all of this is hidden away. The station is underground, the lifthill is enclosed: Then you're launched into the first half of the ride. Notable elements: - launch - overbank - zero-g roll - fly under the railroad drawbridge - fly through the balloon storage - fly over the area in a large figure 8 shape The second half starts with an underground launch, and is considerably more hidden. Notable elements: - underground launch - steep uphill - overbank over the restaurant - tight helix - zero-g roll over the restaurant
  14. Looks like they have permission! They've also completely redesigned the rides to satisfy the locals, with elements carefully positioned to direct noise away from the neighbors, a first drop into a trench, and an enclosed lifthill for the Family Boomerang. So even though Tripsdrill ran away with the original concept, Tayto is not getting a clone, but an original ride.
  15. See you on opening day then. Waffles are on me. I think a lot of British enthusiasts are closer to this park than they realize. If you're anywhere south of London you're closer to Plopsa than to Alton Towers and definitely Blackpool.
  16. It's actually a banana roll, so you stay upside down. Be sure to watch the announcement video. There's all sorts of crazy elements:
  17. At the end of the day, there's so much at the Efteling that "doesn't mesh" you have to conclude the entire park is a bit messy. Looks like a solid addition to me. They've kept (and improved) the station, gave the whole thing a quirky new theme, and the ride fills a gap in the park's lineup. Kids seem to love it.
  18. An update from Holiday Park, which announced it will open June 10. New this season is a brand new theme for its rapid river. New queue, scenery, plants, rockwork. And dinosaurs, lots of dinosaurs. Construction also well under way on the park's new Wickieland area, which was announced for 2021. photos: Holiday Park
  19. Quite a few footers for the Spinning Coaster are already in place. This large area has been cleared and has footers installed: And it seems the footers in the lake are all installed as well... The hotel has also progressed nicely... The main building now has no more scaffolding, revealing lots of cute details. Still lots of work left on the west wing (which leads towards the park entrance)... ...and should end up looking like this: As well as the north wing (which stretches all the way to the park's waterpark)... ...and will look like this: photos: Plopsaland, Themepark Magic & local news
  20. I like how they've put some effort into their signs. Make this whole ordeal a bit more enjoyable. photos by looopings
  21. Construction still on schedule for the Intamin Mega! Work started on the footers. source:local newspaper l'Avenir
  22. Wow, been a while since this thread got kicked. The park is opening a brand new family coaster this season, Wakala, themed to the Kwakiutl (indigenous Canadians). Looks like a pretty sweet addition. Impressive how few trees had to be cut down for it. I've also never seen a ride where the train goes that far up the spike. :o
