^ Good point, why should we go all over the world riding these things when we can just watch a video of it on Youtube.

 

(Unless you meant something else assuming that English isn't your first language)

It was irony...and I thought it would be clear...!

Besides...in reality there`s more theming than you see in those animations.

For example: You`re driving through a tunnel right before you reach the first Corcscrew...it`s not there in the Video...but there are more differences...

But maybe the Speed that we saw in the Testing-Video is the final one...but i still hope it will be faster though...

It was irony, ideed, but sometimes I really think that you take away something of the experience that you have when you are riding a Coaster for the first time WITHOUT seeing a Simulation or even an Onride Video before...

P.S. Thanks for this polite reaction, Mr. Gumbo. Rrrrrrrespect !

It's weird to me to see video of the train is only running with one set of seats attached, the rest are just the train chassis... I don't really see the point unless they can't break them in with anymore weight?

This coaster has really surprised me. Every time I saw more pictures and more of the ride being built it has looked better and better, and now after seeing these animation videos of the complete layout and ride, it looks amazing. Everything about it, the elements, the pacing, the speed, it has a ton all in one ride. This will be a great ride for Europa Park.

This ride is of great interest to me and looks amazing. If this ride proves to be as good as it looks, we could possibly see more installations of this type from Mack in the future elsewhere around the world.

For those of you, who understand "a little" german...

 

"Darüber hinaus verfügen die Sitze der Züge über ein revolutionäres High-Tech-System, das innovativ Audio- und Spezialeffekte kombiniert. Die raffinierte Multimediatechnik spricht alle Sinne an und lässt die Fahrt im neuen Megacoaster zur Sensation werden."

 

This is a part of a press-text that from the europa-park itself.

It says :

"Furthermore the seats will have a revolutionäry high-tech-system, that will combine audio and "special"-effects in an innovative way.

The sophisticated multimedia technique will appeal to all senses and will make the new megacoaster a sensation."

 

That sounds good, doesn`t it`???

My middle son is over the 1.4m but would have failed on the age 10.

but 1.3m and age 7 he is fine and can join me and his big brother in the Q

 

So looking forward to riding this in July
