^The S-bends probably won't be there on the real coaster. As you can see in the drawing of the second photo, there will be some kind of turntables to switch between the tracks. Since there isn't a turntable available in NoLimits2 , they just needed to connect the track switches with the station in NL2. That is my guess, at least.

It's a good guess. Obviously a quick model / render of the entire layout was all that was needed for planning purposes, you can see that they have a representative model for Sledge Hammer showing the clearance envelope of the swing. I'm sure we'll get better imagery later down the road when they announce the name / theme.

That's a pretty cool layout.

 

I wonder if they'll incorporate Sledgehammer into its theme. It's so close. Maybe the new coaster represents some sort of monster, with the giant sledgehammer attacking it.

Liseberg called, and mentioned Loke vs Balder

 

The layout looks short but solid! I like Infinity trains so it's good to see more of them being built.

I feel so stupid for not noticing that. It's clearly shown in the red lay-out that those would be turn table's. That's what you get for focusing on the blue 3D redering more then the details.

 

As for theming It would be nice to see Bobbejaanland to combine it with Sledgehammer for sure but the park isn't known for connecting rides with themes so I expect a brand new stand-alone theme for this coaster.

Haven’t posted for ages. Robb, it seems those were created by the guy or company which rethemed Dreamcatcher (ex Air Race), and he posted his drawings on his website as « free creation » well before anything was decided themewise. The park is no longer in collaboration with this company and whether or not the concept arts have been retained by the park management remains to be seen

Not « fan » made. The guy who designed them actually used to WORK for the park, and these were sketches before they ceased collaboration. Probably those concepts were not retained after his contract with the park went to an end

Bobbejaanland reveals name, theme and designs of new launched coaster

 

150219legend3.jpg.6913d48a6fa6f5f01b2ba57900c8b125.jpg

 

The new launched roller coaster of Bobbejaanland gets an impressive theme. The Flemish theme park is building a spectacular 43 meter high roller coaster this winter with three launches. Today Bobbejaanland announces how the attraction will look like. The name of the roller coaster is also revealed.

 

The triple-launch coaster is named Fury. According to the accompanying story, visitors start a "fiery battle" with the dragon Fogo. During the ride, they are launched forward, backward and forward with a top speed of more than 100 kilometers per hour. In doing so, they travel through four inversions.

 

Fury will be located in the new themed area Land of Legends, where the existing roller coaster Typhoon and giant frisbee Sledge Hammer can also be found. "This will be the first themed area in Bobbejaanland with a real total experience," says Bobbejaanland director Yves Peeters. "It is the largest investment in the history of our park, and I am convinced that we are putting something legendary here."

 

Four elements

The story behind the themed area revolves around the Guardian of Elements. That is a patron who created the Land of Legends somewhere on our planet to protect the four elements of nature - earth, water, fire and wind - against evil forces. Although he closed the four different realms with gates, the danger is always in wait.

 

In the themed area of 20.000 m², each attraction represents a different element. "Visitors become part of the story themselves." Drawings show how the terrain around the rollercoaster is decorated with a large number of mythical figures, bridges, water features and lots of greenery. There will also be a new water playground - Naiads Waters - where the huge water hose Uvù is the service.

 

Immense dragon

Bobbejaanland called in the Dutch Leisure Expert Group for the designs and the storyline. The station building of Fury looks like a mysterious castle. In addition to the bright red track, an immense dragon rises. The Flemish writer Mathilda Masters developed the concept into a complete story. The German company IMAscore provides the music.

 

Fury is 600 meters long, but thanks to the triple launch, passengers will be laying a total of 830 meters. A switch ensures that two trains can stand on the track at the same time. There will be 2 trains, each holding 12 passengers, resulting in an hourly capacity of approximately 680 passengers. The coaster of the German company Gerstlauer opens in June.

I'm in shock. This is quite unexpected from Bobbejaanland. I love the concept with the 4 realms entree points and that the entree for both Typhoon and Sledge Hammer get moved. Typhoon's entree was never badly placed but replacing it there makes it better in my opinion. Sledge Hammer however had a bad place overall, the ride was there behind the treeline, quite hidden and far from a main pathway, placing that entree next to three other rides makes it feel less hidden.

 

About the two new attractions. Naiads Waters seems so out of place here. Here we have wind represented by Typhoon the parks biggest thrill coaster to date, Earth by Sledge Hammer the parks biggest thrill flat-ride to date and Fire by Fury what seems to take Typhoon's spot as the parks biggest thrill coaster. Then we have water represented by Naiads Waters a water playground. I just find that funny, but a welcome addition to the park.

Then Fury, I already wanted to revisit the park just knowing the lay-out of the coaster. It seemed like another solid ride to add to Bobbejaanland and I had a great excuse to reride Typhoon, what isn't a world class coaster but a lot of fun none the less, But seeing this I'm fore once excited to revisit the park, they not only add this solid ride but update the queue's for my two favorite rides in the park. I'm looking forward to April and see (pictures) of what the park has done so far to realize this and to June when I get to vist the park myself.

Bobbejaanland has sent us a press release announcing the name of their new attraction and the new surrounding themed land, the Land of Legends!

 

landoflegends_fury.thumb.jpg.fd2f8144647414c3f363bba00e85f904.jpg

In November last year, the amusement park in Lichtaart announced that it will open a new spectacular roller coaster in 2019. This is a triple launch coaster, which means it is launched three times during departure. It will be more than 40 metres high and reach speeds of more than 100 km/h. The new attraction will extend the park and also be the centrepiece of a new thematic zone called ‘Land of Legends’.

 

Cowboy Town celebrated its fortieth anniversary last year. The zone, featuring attractions such as Forbidden Caves, Mount Mara and Naga Bay, was named Adventure Valley in 2015. “However, the Land of Legends will be the first thematic area within Bobbejaanland that offers visitors a complete experience,” says Yves Peeters, general manager of the park, with some pride. “It’s the biggest investment ever made in the park’s history, so I’m convinced that we’re doing something legendary here. After all, we’re going much further than simply building a new roller coaster. Bobbejaanland icons, such as Typhoon and Sledge Hammer, will also play a role in the 2-hectare zone.”

 

The Guardian of Elements creates the Land of Legends

The Guardian of Elements created the Land of Legends in a far-off corner of our planet. The sole purpose was to preserve the four elements of nature in their purest form. To protect against evil forces, he closed off the four realms with gates. What he did not know, however, is that evil had been lying in wait for a long time and the realms were being threatened from within. Each attraction in the zone represents a different element.

 

The Land of Legends will open to the public in June and anybody visiting Bobbejaanland will then personally become part of the story. The Guardian will only succeed in driving away the evil forces with the help of visitors. “In the new roller coaster, for example, you will enter into a fiery battle with the dragon Fogo. That is why the attraction is getting the suitable name Fury,” explains Peggy Verelst. “The story was written by Mathilda Masters, author of various popular children's books.”

 

Fury and the Land of Legends will open sometime in June. The exact date will be decided later. The complete story about the origin of the Land of Legends can be found at bobbejaanland.be/landoflegends.

First track pieces of new Bobbejaanland's new roller coaster: different color than expected

 

130319gerst3.jpg.c2f652211d1eae1f28d1c4f2120b75aa.jpg

 

Bobbejaanland's new roller coaster will get a different color than was thought. Last month the Flemish amusement park showed the first designs of the spectacular triple-launch coaster Fury. The track was then red. Now that the first parts have arrived in Bobbejaanland, it appears that it is orange.

 

Red was on closer inspection "not powerful enough", says a spokeswoman for the amusement park. "This color is much closer to the fire." The story of Fury is about the "fiery battle" with the dragon Fogo. The supports are dark brown.

 

At the end of February the Bobbejaanland management already visited the factory of the German manufacturer Gerstlauer. "Given the tight timing, it is important for us to closely follow the production process," says CEO Yves Peeters.

 

In recent months, the area where the roller coaster should be placed has been strengthened. "More than four hundred concrete supporting pillars of fourteen meters deep were built," Peeters explains. Now the construction of the track can really begin. The work is still on schedule for an opening in June.

 

Fury will be the highest and fastest triple-launch coaster in the Benelux, with a top speed of more than 100 kilometers per hour. Passengers are launched forward, backward and forward again.

While I don't mind the color change for this reason, because they have a point, I believe red would have clashed less. When I looked at the concept art the red made sense it looked like they where going for a dark theme, trying to imagine the track Orange in that concept art it all becomes a lot more happy. I'm okay with that as long as the Dragon, station and area fit with that orange track.

World first for Bobbejaanland: guests decide for themselves whether new roller coaster goes forwards or backwards

 

030519furs.jpg.904448c474ef8e19586d578cc00754fb.jpg

 

The new roller coaster Fury in Bobbejaanland is provided with a unique interactive element. After boarding the train, visitors can decide for themselves whether they want to experience the ride forwards or backwards. This confirms a spokeswoman for the Flemish amusement park.

 

"Each restraint is equipped with a button panel with which passengers can "vote" whether they want to go forwards or backwards," a spokeswoman explains. "That happens while the train runs towards a turntable." Most votes apply. "So if the majority opts for backwards, the ride is made backwards and vice versa."

 

This is an ingenious new system from the German manufacturer Gerstlauer. There is room for twelve people per train. In the event of a tie, the computer determines what will happen.

 

"We have an absolute world first in our hands. No other roller coaster in the world currently has such interaction. It also ensures a very high repeat value."

 

A ride in the 43 meter high triple-launch coaster Fury consists of three launches and four inversions. With a top speed of 106.6 kilometers per hour, it will be the fastest roller coaster in the Benelux. The opening is expected to take place in June.
