Europa Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Have you guys heard of the Europa Park Add On to RollerCoaster Tycoon 3? Well, most of you probably haven't since you don't play RCT3, but it's a sweet add on to the game. It has custom tracks, custom tracked rides, and other goodies that are found at Europa Park. Take a look at the thread here if you are interested in it:

Thanks for the link!

^^^^ seems to be a great add-on... it looks like it has a costum track builder in it, with which you can build unique elements... so many comments say this add-on is like rct4! i can`t test it because i was travvelling around the world but as soon as i am back, i will give it a try

 

 

EDIT: found some nice pics and videos of the addon on http://www.rct-3.org/board45-rct-3/board211-park-enhancement-project-pep/18822-europa-park-add-on-informationen-des-pep-teams/:

Best thing about the Euro-Mir Animation is definitively the song ! That music is catchy as hell...guess I heard it a hundred times...and I STILL love it

 

I know! That song is amazing and makes the coaster even more unique. It felt like a night club going up the lift hill and it was awesome! As for the additions... is there a spinning coaster and a dark ride coming in 2013? I sorta got a bit confused reading the last few posts.

^no just one but it seems that it will be a darkride-suspended-powered-coaster with rumored controlled spinning trains (like the one from euromir or like you know it from other darkrides) and maybe some unpowered coaster parts on the track were the coaster rolls freely downhill. And in the original news from "Badische Zeitung"was written, that they get the permission to built a outside section across the river,too.

 

 

So overall it seems that it will be a spinning-darkride-powered&non powered-inverted/suspended-family-coaster with outdoor parts over the river and themed after the "minimoys" movies from luc besson.

 

 

Hey where do you put the files after the DL?

i can`t test and download it right now, but there should be a "readMe"-File in which you`ll find a installation manual!

 

And in the thread to EP-RCT3 add-on is an information, that if you load some costum tracks it can look like RCT3 is crashed, but mostly it`s just the waiting time because some costum tracks have up to 4000 different track parts!!! Just wait up to 5 minutes and the coaster will appear. But i think all rct3 fans will now have a lot of opportunities to build tracks, with this amount of different parts, nearly everthing will be possible. can´t wait to test it by my own

Well...the annouced darkride turns out to be a family indoor coaster...that`s right.

 

But it`s NOT confirmed yet that it will be themed to the "minimeus" movie...it was "just" confirmed that it will be themed by luc besson So PROBABLY it will have the minimeus-theming...maybe something different. I don`t know what you guys think...but MANY germans reacted in a negative way to the minimeus theme

Yeah... I think I'd rather have a different theme, or some variation done by Luc Besson that won't be quite as... childish? IDK Not quite sure how to translate what I'm try to say into terms...

There are sooooo many people here in Germany "complaining" about the Minimeus-theme. And as far as I know it REALLY looks as if that story was choosen for the coaster. But on the other hand...there are so many diffrent factors that make a ride great (or bad)...that I think we all should wait and see...

 

I really do think that this will be another great attraction...even if it would be themed to baby poop

 

Europa Park is still developing is such a great way that I really feel that it would be almost unfair to judge the ride in advance just by knowing the way the puppets will look like !

i think they were not judging the ride itself... i think it´s just because many people waited a long time for new big dark ride for the EP. And the Ep always themed their attraction about myths and culture and haven`t used any licenses from movies because they didn`t need them (and many fans were happy the way it was). So i was really a bit disappointed, too... im not a big fan of that movies and don´t like the modern style and atmosphere. In my opinion this movies were made for the target audience, called "tokyo hotel" fans(well known teeny-band in europe) and younger . But that doesn´t mean that i am not looking forward to this ride. So i understand the complains, a good myth themed to tales from the brothers grimm would have fit much nicer to the style of the park and the surounding area. But anyways, i`m looking forward to it and maybe when i ride through oversized mushrooms and gardens shrinked to a minimoy size, i start to like the theming. And the story of the movie can be good for a darkride with faster parts (shrink to ant size - get known to the other minimoys - then the evil villain will apear - and like in every animation movie, a fast chase/slide through the grass,tunnels or sth. like this will happen and in the end you are the winner and get back to normal size).

 

So maybe you (GeorgT) like the theming, but that many complain about this, doesn´t mean that they are not looking forward to it. The most people just hopped for something else... minimoys is just not that much liked by older guys and non tokyo hotel fans. And yeah i would ride a darkride themed to what ever, too, but the theming is essential for the atmosphere the ride will generate and that is, in my opinion, the most important thing together with just having fun riding it. So i really think even if this will be minimoys-style themed, this ride will be great, because EP will create a really nice atmospere, even with this small "tokyo hotel" look- and sound-alikes

Nooooo...Sorry but I don`t like Minimeus Theme, too !!! I just think that people should judge AFTER (!) riding it (and knowing how Europa is gonna realize that minimeus-stuff....and stop complaining till then. That`s all

Good to hear that you don`t like it,too. But i think they shouldn`t stop complaining, its why such people like us coaster enthusiasts were using forums like this. We want to get known about new stuff, we want to see pictures and videos from other people around the world and we are here to discuss all kind stuff and write and read the opinions of all users. What i really don´t like is that everytime someone complains about sth. (for example about a new ride), there are people which say "every new ride is better than no new one" and other that say "first wait till you have riden it" - and i understand both statements. But if you complain about sth. during a building phase, then it is just that. It is a complaining about sth. someone don´t like - and i am the one that wants read it... If there weren`t discussions about "what kind of ride will this be?" ,"is there much airtime" or "will the theming look ugly?" then this forum would be dead... there would be absolut complete silence - no one is talking, democracy and free speach is shutted off, just pure boring nothing and love everwhere...

 

hope you understand my point so please complain, discuss,say out loud what you like/dislike and just have fun with our little hobby... it`s all about that in forums

Woodie update !!!

 

GCI workers are very busy completing the lifthill and building the turnaround under Atlantica Supersplash...and the first pictures of theming elements showed up...and looking GREAT

 

(Sources are eprust.com , ep-board.com , coasterfans.com AND myself )

It`s all about THEMING LOOOOVE

 

Several new pics showed up at Chris-space.net...and I guess there will be loads of enthusiasm to be found in various forums in the next few weeks...cause it seems as if Europa is again absolutely serious about theming a coaster.

 

All I can say is that this thing is starting to look better and better...very promising IMHO

299607267_Howdecenttheturnaround....jpg.7616d4cf87a1622ce2ecc817d88edd0f.jpg

As you can see the turnaround will look quite decent...

298876121_OverA.S_drop.jpg.dc942d1836b7282aced75473c8cbe304.jpg

So this is where the little hump over Atlantica Supersplash will be placed...

688846135_HumpberAtlanticcloseup.jpg.0bf9f4cf8190b5d4ba2f9566f1fb2e7c.jpg

Over the drop...

331351133_3.Tunnelnah.jpg.a0b71f58f772a5aa60c78054fb7bd7c8.jpg

...and right into that trench...

1593365736_3.Tunnelcloseup.jpg.72f4d4f5c112b2df34c03ba21a794d6c.jpg

...which is gonna be tight (could get loud in there, right ?)

644140147_Flythroughgekipptnah.jpg.be363cb0198349560ef63510a3cc7068.jpg

And there you can see the tilted track piece in the flythrough section...

393902909_1.Tunneleingangnah.jpg.adf488d49663d2b36edcc90c39798431.jpg

There`s the first drop dissapearing into the first tunnel...

1197904746_Ausfahrt1.trechWhatthehell....jpg.efb014affddb731a4250026ed95812ce.jpg

...leaving the tunnel throuh a section that seems to get a lot of theming love ;-)

1790678935_Andthisistogiveyouanidea....jpg.f881eeb74d9be09a311b86edd6d14111.jpg

This is to give you an idea where the woodie is gonna cross Blue Fire`s track !

491645919_TorNahaufnahme.jpg.e9a4d06adcec8dc273c1b12fb8f82288.jpg

Looks as if the woodie`s entrance gate is gonna get a lot of theming love, too ;-)

533162937_viewoverwhaleadv.lastpic.jpg.60d387dea1c778ed0125a42442e0956d.jpg

Gonna close this with the nice view over Europa`s Splash battle !

So...the name of the new woodie is not a secret anymore :

 

WODAN - TIMBURCOASTER

 

Source : http://www.tmdb.de/de/marke/WODAN_TIMBUR_COASTER,DE302011050393.html

 

On that page you can see that the name is another "trademark" of Europa Park !

 

"Wodan" is a great name I think...and "Timburcoaster" is the scandinavian name for wooden coaster...

WODAN.jpg.7e6267ffc04955bdd3ed69471d1ab8b9.jpg

There`s the Logo !
