Photo TR: Wodan media day at Europa Park (new GCI coaster)


Recommended Posts

So today was the media day for Wodan Timburcoaster at Europapark.

 

After a nice presentation it was time to check out the coaster. It's a GCI, it has a good swooping first drop and a nice pacing for the first half. The second half ain't dull but has plenty of twists and turns.

 

You have to be 1.20m to ride this ride and it feels like a fun fast paced family ride. My first run (which was on one of the first trains) felt like ok.. but the second (which was one of the last trains) was way more impressive (and it was all the way in the back)

There are spots on this ride where you could wish for more speed (to get more air) but remember.. it's a GCI

 

This ride, i'm pretty sure, is going to be a hit with the fans and families and is another nice addition to the park.

The queue area is just amazing and something you would expect from Europapark.

 

I see plenty of possibilities for ride interaction between Wodan, Blue Fire and Atlantica Supersplash. The more photo ops the better. Some possible photo points do have netting in front of it.. but that was to be expected..

 

ok, enough from me at this moment, time for some pictures.

Enjoy

Amazing TR! I wasn't really expected the queue to be that full of themeing and little touches I am seriously impressed!

 

Nice to see that your were flown up to the sky bar to take these amazing shots! By the way... how many trains does the coaster run? I know that Europa Park love to run their rides at capacity (and that's amazing in my books!).

Thanks Hanno!!!

 

I have a request though...

 

Can you recreate this picture with Chris holding a plate of Raclette as well? That would pretty much be my dream come true right there!

 

I'll see what i can do later this week

They have 3 trains for this ride. Today they were running 2 trains but they can run 3 (and most likely they will do that later this week).

Thanks for the great pictures! I can't wait to ride this this summer! That skybar seemed interesting I am guessing its a bar... really freaking high in the sky? I really loved the overview photos and the queue and surrounding area looks lovely. Thanks again!
