^ You have to think in proportions: Denmark is a VERY small country with a not so big population, so the parks aren't as crowded as they can be in for example USA and Germany.

 

Eventhough Fårup is a major themepark in Denmark, they don't have 10,000 guests at the same time.

Finally Gerstlauer has finished the track and pieces has now arrived at Fårup. Infact they've already started to put it up..

 

A loader tractor!!

 

I'm not sure if this is the station or just a random building.

 

Well this is definitely the station building.

 

Concrete work.

 

Track!'

 

Hmmm.. Why a locomotive? I can't see the connection between lightning and locomotives..

 

 

I think this is supposed to be the top hat.

 

 

 

What a spectacular support!

Oh wow, they did change the layout quite a bit. Did they have to order new track from Gerstlaur, or did they decide on the layout changes before hand?

 

Whatever it is, looks like fun.

^ I'm pretty sure that they only changed the airtime hill after the MCBR that were in the original design to a Zero-g roll, and I'm pretty sure that they did that before they started to fabricate the track.

 

I only wish that the top-hat on Kanonen was as extreme as the one on Lynet.

Can't wait to ride this puppy in just 3 weeks.

Rode it a few times today.

 

It's a lot of fun. There's some bumpy spots in the back row but pretty smooth in the front.

 

I'd rank it alongside the "mid tier" Intamin accelerators.

Hello!

 

So today Fårup Sommerland announced that they are adding a kiddie coaster from Zamperla next year.

They also confirmed that we'll get our big coaster in 2013 as they weren't really ready with it.

I can't help but thinking that the little kiddie coaster is a 'impulse-puchase' as a substitute for the bigger coaster that should have been ready in 2012.

 

The model is the Gravity Coaster from Zamperla, http://www.zamperla.com/en/product/90/family-gravity-coaster.html?category_id=5

 

So the coaster will be themed to some kind of hedgehog, which fit the whole 'forest' theme that they are running.

 

Facts:

 

Length: 80 meter

Train: 6 cars with 2 persons in each.

Capacity: 360 pph

Height: 4,5 meters

Here's some pictures that the park released:

The hedgehog!

Theming!

KT and I approve of the Hedgehog coaster! And TPR approves of a new coaster for 2013 since we're planning our Scandi trip for that year!

 

Yep, there's a couple of nice family coasters being build for 2012 in Denmark.

And Djurs Sommerland probably have something up there sleeve for 2013...

 

That is the one TPR trip that i must get on!
