I love woodies as well, I have ridden both woodies in Holland, now there is a new beast arriving in 2007 and it should be a winner for the Park.

 

Good height and lenght, how about one of the curves being in a Tunnel with some light and fog effects.

 

I love "Robin Hood" at Walibi World, could do with a Helix before the rise into the brakes for a great finish.

 

I don't like the woodie at Eftling, it's way too rough and slow. Needs to be rebuilt or replaced. It does not do the rest of the park justice.

 

Holland does suffer from lack of wood coasters.

 

I'll be moving to Holland in the next few years and I'll def make lots of trips to check this woodie out.

 

Thank You - Toverland for saying yes to GCI

Is it normal to have the whole slab of concrete act as the support footer for a coaster or is this a new GCII technique that they've just started to use?

 

I don't think it's that big of a deal though. The coaster looks pretty cool so far and I do admit that I am one of the many who like construction photos...

Wow!

 

I'm shocked that Toverland went with two trains! Great for us though! Looks pretty cool and twisted!

While the rendering is close to the actual ride....we have made some modifications to the end of the ride for the better....we have left the banked speed bump after the first drop

 

Thanks for continuing to post the construction pics!

Well, it's normal for a wood coaster to be rough. So is pegasus. I didn't mind it at all. It's a family coaster. As Robin Hood. But not Troy! Omg this is a very O My God-tish coaster. Well done Toverland. I'm very surprised by the ride's lay-out. I think this ride will get a High rate on wooden coaster polls.

Benny (you met in Walibi Belgium 2 years ago)

looks like this kinda woodie is going to be an awesome one and the

1st drop's bottom seems to get so much g's that the train heads to

the left twisted turn there at once! i thought it was gonna be better

than Kentucky Rumbler..... hope so.

I've been there on the press meeting for the fans on saturday.

Toverland did a great job by showing us the stuff en the presentation.

We also got the change to ask the president of GCII some questions.

It will be there biggest coaster build so far.

There are 2 more potential cliënts in Europe but he did not tell wich one

Also hi mentioned something i think the most in Tampa would like to hear

When we walked outside on the construction area i told him about some of my trips to the US and my only GCI i've ridden so far.

I told him that gwazi was a good ride but a bit to rough.

Also i asked him why there are no Millenium trains on that coaster...

The answer was: Not yet but maybe soon

Clair is a fair and open person and i must say it was a pleasure to meet him.

He takes the time for everyone with questions and offcourse a picture.

To help you out:
