Hey everybody!

Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page

I like the ride, but the name... Come on, Speed Monster? I liked the rumour of Ragnarok better. And it looks like it will be sponsored by Mazda. Damn.[/url]

Awesome now with than and Phantasialand we have two more reasons to go back to Europe! Hopefully between now and 2007 or 2008 there will be even MORE good stuff announced!

I wonder if they'll play it on the ride like the SLC at Movie Park Germany!

Darn it, now it looks like I gotta try to get there next year too. Hopefully I can add it into the England trip, otherwise I'll be taking a weekend flight there The first inversion looks pretty cool, as does its location. The name may sound dumb, but no more so than Kingda Ka, X, Zonga, or Rita.


And the list of new rides for next year continues....

RCDB is calling that inversion a Cobra Loop/Immelman (like the first inversion on Storm Runner) The artwork may be deceiving.


(That's almost as bad as SFGADV's old park maps)

This has to be the best layout for an accelerator yet. Inversions and airtime, what more can you ask for? Ohhh, and that first airtime hill-into sweeping drop-into Immelmann isn't a bad combination either!

I think the ride really looks cool and I really want to ride it. The name has got to be the cheesest name on earth but what can you do.


man so what ?? I don't give a damn, it's just a name ? It's the ride that's important. In the near future probably before christmas I will give you more updates And after christmas probably easter I will also bring you updates. Stay tuned lol 8)

Hmmm, I'm liken der Speed Monster name. It is better than the made up sounds like Kingda Ka and Shiekra, and it is less plain than X or Scream. It looks like it will be fun.


We complain about names, ride them anyway, and we probably couldn't think of better ones, anyways...

Humdinger? What's up wit dat?

Shiekra isn't made up. It's even on Wikipedia, with a picture (here)!




The layout picture is sort of wierd, and so I'm waiting for a clearer picture, or more construction, to make up my mind. Although, all of these rockets looks good (except the top-hat and bunny-hill only ones.)


As for the name, well, most rollecoasters have awful names! Speed Monster just seems to be a false statement, considering that it's actually pretty average speed for a large steel coaster (100kmph, or about 62mph).
