    Why do I still have a donkey title???
  1. Robb, do you remember what the waiting times were for Karnan throughout the day? Last time I was there waits were above 1 hour all day, I'm sort of interested how it is nowadays.
  2. Okay. . . So call me crazy, But I was not "blown away" by this coaster. The lift is amazingly fast, the drop looks awesome, and the non-inverting loop looks like it would be fun, but after that it just lost my interest. . . I know I am in the minority here, but after the loop the coaster really doesn't seem to be all that amazing. I'd take Skyrush or MF over this coaster any day. (Yes, I know videos, and photos don't do the ride justice) but just watching this video is not enough to make me want to book a flight to go ride this coaster. Okay. . . So call me crazy, But I was not "bl
  3. I seem to have missed this, but when will the new rides open to the public? Was it 2016 or 2017?
  4. Can I ask you how long the waiting time was for Karnan when you were there?
  5. Correct. However it depends. I rode the coaster 2 times that day. First time was with the reverse drop on, eventhough the queue was already spilling outside of the waiting line and waiting time was about 1:10. The second time the queue was shorter (still about 55 minutes), but there was a problem in the station with one of the guests, and our train dispatched late. Because of that, the reverse drop was turned off. I think this was only for our train because the dispatch was delayed, as the tower works as a soundtube and I could hear the screams from the other trains later on.
  6. I was there last thursday, and lines were 1 hour+ on both Karnan and Fluch von Novgorod. Of course this is in the height of the summer season, but both coasters have a pretty low capacity anyway. Karnan is fantastic, the trains are very comfortable and it's quite scary going up and down inside the tower with lapbar restraints only. Long time since I've been this scared on a rollercoaster before.
  7. Planning a trip to Europa Park with a friend, but he only has free from work in August. August is the busiest month at Europa Park I think, so what kind of crowds should I expect. I know all coasters are capacity monsters, but I'm still a bit worried. And is it better to go in the beginning of August or more towards the end? Thanks!
  8. Guys can anyone update me regarding the second train at Expedition Geforce? The past years they (never?) used 2 trains at the same time, is this fixed now or do they still only use 1 of the trains, even on busy summer days?
  9. If the Intamin coaster will be "very tall", maybe it will be the tallest coaster in the world, seeing the new rides will be "-est"
  10. I was at Ferrari World last week on a stopover flight. The drop tower g-force was closed down and didn't look like it would reopen any time soon. It is also removed from the park map, and all signs in the park were also removed. So maybe it's one of the rides that will be updated?
  11. Funny how here in Belgium Plopsa declared in national media that they would never introduce a fast pass system in their parks after Walibi did so because "everyone is equal in our parks"!
  12. I'll be going there on sunday June 15th. Anyone have any experience with the crowds on a sunday, and the current operations at Formula Rossa, are they slow in loading the trains? If I remember correctly Friday and Saturday is the weekend over there, and Sunday is a regular working day. So crowds should be no problem I guess?
  13. I guess here is what I do and do not have a "problem" with. I think if you have just waited in line, rode like any other guest would, and then as you are exiting the ride, there is an empty seat, and you snag it...ONCE... I'm "ok" with that (even though I know that's probably against the posted policy.) I don't think I'm "ok" with someone coming up the exit, circumventing the queue, and then hopping into empty seats all day. I "get" that he's not taking a ride away from anyone else, but IMO there is just something wrong with someone making their own rules when it comes to theme
  14. I still hold out hope for a virginia reel to be re-made one day or that wooden reverser roller-coaster from RCT which i'm told was actually a real ride long ago. It was a real ride, let's hope that this one gets revived too!
