Right that's true. I was just thinking of the actual height of the ride.

Still by dutch standarts this is a high rollercoaster. Goliath is concidered to be huge around here.

Nice! Dive machines can be themed quite nicely so it'll be interesting to see what Efteling do with it. Given the attention to detail a lot of their other rides have I imagine this will be something special!

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

It's about time!

My home park definitely needed a new and (for us Dutchies) special coaster!

And finally a B&M about a 5 min drive away for me :b


p.s. already loving the new GM!

Portugal needs more old-school B&M's!!!

That tour is already packing a nice set of credits!
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

I heard a small rumor about the place of the new coaster. Note it's a rumor but apparently they build it behind VH, Interesting place if you ask me.
Source image and rumor. Rumored place.

Anyway I have calmed down after the news (I was just so happy about the first B&M so close at home), I started to wonder: how about the tree top hight limit the park has? Wonder how they're going around that. (Like Oblivion or build a raise the ground or have an agreement.) I'm looking forward to 2015 more and more.
I think a visit this winter to check out constrution is needed.

According to the CEO the ride will be longer and more coaster like compared to Krake, at Heide Park, which is pretty cool IMO.

Anyone speaking dutch who can translate more than me?

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Did my donkey title just change???

Yes, but it's only around 90ft above ground... Just lower than this new ride.. My guess is they pull an oblivion & build a tunnel.
