These pics were really great but in the official german europapark forum we had the same discussion about this illegal action. No one should do something like this... hopefully the park will present us soon some official pics with such nice details!!

 

But it shows nicely that the park looks exactly what is posted in forums all over the world...

... some kind of viral marketing control!

 

 

But now some new photos arrived.... not official but from outside of the building area, so enjoy these ones (source:http://www.lifthill.de/):

Hello Everybody...

My Name ist GeorgeT and this is my first post in this Community.

It took some time to read the whole thread about the Blue Fire Coaster, but I have to say it was worth every second. I would like to thank all of you so much for all the enthusiasm that you put in your posts.

I`m a member of the Onride-Community, and, of course, we like the way, the Coaster develops, but your Comments were MUCH more enthusiastic than the ones in the Onride-Community, and I think this Coaster is worth it.

I live very close to the Europa-Park so I saw the Coaster live several times.

Of course, it´s not the biggest Coaster in the world, it`s not the highest nor the fastest, but here really comes so much together that makes a good and intense ride...and somehow I am a little bit proud that a german Company is doing such excellent work.

Rumours said, it would be about 2000 meters long...so I was a little bit disappointed, when it tourned out to be "just" about 1000 meters long...cause I LOVE long tracks...

BUT : By now, I think that Mack really does everything to create 1056 meters with MAXIMUM intensity...the ride will be some kind of "rush"...and :

If you take a look at the heights, you`ll see that the "trimbrake" is very low, it`s a lot lower than the loop...so I`m shure there will be an awesome amout of negative g`s BEFORE you reach the brake.

Wherever you look at this track, the whole thing will be very intense until the last second. AND THE (MANY) TUNNELS...

I`ll better stop now.

Hope to see you in Germany. I`ll be there...

When I saw the pictures, I thought part of the ride looked like a Skycoaster, but realized that it was just a tall corkscrew or dive loop. This looks a lot like the type of track Intamin uses, and I'm seeing it used by other manufacturers as well. I think this style allows more freedom in the design of inversion elements as well as spanning great distances without so many vertical supports.

 

It'd be great to see something like this in the U.S. sometime---particularly out here on the West Coast.

So...on the one hand, the final speed isn`t reached yet...BUT : The track lengh of the first hill and the first inversion is huge...in my experince you realize the real speed of a coaster when you ride it...the big ones often look slower from the outside than they are.

Well, we`ll see...

So if this video is showing the train going in 2/3 of the real speed, why can't anyone, that know some video editing, increase the speed of it about 50% and then you would have an instant video that shows the real speed.
