Last week I had to be in Hamburg for work but managed to squeeze in a visit to Heidepark and more.

 

First up was Heidepark on Monday.

Leaving at home at approx 8 am, I had a 550 km drive in front of me.

No cameras allowed inside unfortunately. If you don't understand german, it is difficult to follow what the actors are telling. There are some nice scenes though and a small boatride with a drop of 50 cm or something. That's it. Don't expect some kind of halloween attraction. It's really not scary.

On Wednesday evening we visited the Hamburg Dungeon.

Rafting ride.

1562461398_DSC03048(Medium).JPG.6131cd126b2fb344e26c64bbaf804e29.JPG

It is a very spacious park.

The area where the recordbreaker coaster should come. Since my last visit beginning last year, the heaps of sand where a little bit different but for the rest nothing changed.

End of the ride.

Hairtime on the last 3 smaller hills. You could hear the up-stop wheels not only on these last 3 hills but also on the 2 first big hills.

1106403195_DSC03025(Medium).JPG.f11108a763cf4d71a29a83b4fdc459fa.JPG

Massive airtime on the first 2 hills.

1207976990_DSC03031(Medium).JPG.bb19f1b9903fdc8aeeaf929300dc7b13.JPG

The lifthill is quite fast and the first drop is amazing.

It is really an impressive coaster.

1981144981_DSC03028(Medium).JPG.771c920dcae483bf7a2510c9c88070ae.JPG

Zero minutes row : that's how I like it.

Compared with Rita QoS, I find Desert Race the better one.

1672435541_DSC03024(Medium).JPG.ef88f3df1e69a0a7d4f61e606d406655.JPG

Nice trackturn.

1271081078_DSC03019(Medium).JPG.c4e38fd6da38b756e7a2f770a008a10c.JPG

On the hills there was some nice airtime.

1255023104_DSC03060(Medium).JPG.7f4260de7056555ffb209a7f70e6a965.JPG

The turn at the end of the launch is sudden, but not painful or anything.

1040990583_DSC03020(Medium).JPG.d5679ffeae5f390ea657ff60338391bf.JPG

The launch is quite powerful.

And off we were.

1372894543_DSC03017(Medium).JPG.c795223e3ebc85f73399d4375c12ab87.JPG

So about 15 minutes after I drove up the parking lot, I was already taking place in Desert Race.

3393241_DSC03016(Medium).JPG.5727cfd1d2c02cdca20e8f9837e06bd2.JPG

There were no rows.

I went immediately to the back of the park to try out the new coaster Desert Race. On my way, took some pics of their swingboat ...

Nearing Top Thrill Dragster speed or ... was I a "G'sengte Sau" ?

968123924_DSC03003(Medium).JPG.086cbc5675cb921098ed0877e4a2547d.JPG

Once in Germany, it was time to speed up things. To be clear, I was not doing anything illegal. It is legal to drive as hard as you want on certain parts of the german highways.

Heide Park looks great, with it's coasters and that great looking raft ride.

 

It is one of the Germany parks I am looking forward to on the Europe TPR tour next summer a) if it's on the tour AND b) if I get to do the tour, lol.

 

Thanks for sharing your recent visit there.

190km = 118mph, but taking a photo at the same time is madness.

 

Not really : I had one hand on the wheel and my eyes on the road while I took those pics. It was as safe as taking a chewing gum while driving

 

 

Also, is Desert Race a clone of Rita?

 

Looking at the specs of both on rcdb.com, they are not clones. I only rode Rita in the opening year so that's already 2 years ago but I don't remember much airtime moments on Rita. On Desert Race there are 3 nice airtime moments.

What's this ''recordbreaker coaster"?? sounds really amazing. Are there any links where i can see something about this??

 

It's an old rumor, although it is said that Heidepark has the permits to build it, but as said not much changed on the site since 2 years.

^That doesn't mean its not a clone though.

 

They are not quite clones. the first 2/3 of the rides are identical but DR is slightly different after brake run and the final section into the station is taken at speed

 

its hard to find pictures of the bit after the brakes but in this one of DR you can see the ride drops and then rises before banking off screen

and on this one of RITA you can see that the ride just coasts round the corner after the final breaks
