Djurs Sommerland in Denmark is building a new coaster next year. It will be an Intamin tiny mini hyper, with what looks to be quite a few nice elements, and hopefully a lot of airtime happy The lay-out looks pretty sweet!

WOW, this ride looks great. I am curious to see if this is the return of Intamin coasters with lap bars only.

 

It says on the site that it will have a lap bar and a seat belt for improved sense of freedom . Sounds like the old school Intamin trains too me!

Looks like a pretty good coaster. I'm happy that Intamin is starting to build hypers again. They always looked like one of the best types of coasters ever built. I wasn't impressed with the video, but we will see how the ride turns out.

I also believe that this is the twin of the forthcoming Heart Beat at Tobu Zoo in Japan.

 

I have admired the rendition of Heart Beat many times on rcdb.com, and can't quite believe that one similar will be built so close to me.

 

WAYYYYHEYYYYY!!!

 

My prayers have been heard. Intamin rules!

The ride looks great in the POV. So much airtime! The compact nature, the constant speed, and the quick transitions of the baby Intamin hyper is quite appealing. Hopefully, some small to medium sized parks in the USA will buy one of these clones of Heart Beat / Piraten as the capacity (810 riders per hour) doesn't seem to be very high.

this is actually excellant news, I'm so glad Intamin is hopping back on models like this. I seriously want Hershey's new one to be a mini hyper, or a hyper too because they are so much fun, so comfortable, have fantastic airtime and deliver. This one looks pretty fun too, just proves it doesn't need to be huge to be a great ride!

This looks like a cross of Maverick and Hydra, and is it just me, or do those transitions seem ALOT faster then Mavericks. Can you say hospital bed? And other than the fact that it looks like a g-force test for astronauts that will kill you, it looks great!

 

 

Well, it was a video of a coaster built in No Limits (quite hastily/poorly built as well). The g's were very high in spots, and the transitions were awful for the most part. You can rest assured the final product will be many times better than that shoddy video.
