B&M please please please make something new on this one! Efteling deserves something one of its kind.

Basically what they said is that it will turn out more as a coaster than Krake and will be longer (though even 1 meter can be count as longer)

On Dutch coaster fora you already see people take the park map and draw sections with possible locations, some could turn out very nice.
But locations which have been rumored by various sites are all denied by Efteling as of yet.
Latest rumor is that it will feature at least 1 inversion + floorless trains.

Am just stoked what they will create and what tale and environment they will put it in.

Well, still sounds like something similar to Krake. Maybe a Krake clone with a bonus helix? :lol:

I love donkeys more than me.

"Small Diver with Immelman and EXTRA Bayerncurve" ;)

Maybe they got some cold feet after the problems they had with VH as they mostly tried something unique and new in the past. With Python - prototype Vekoma MK-1200, Joris - first euro dueling woodie and VH - prototype KumBak watercoaster. So I am a little disappointed they play it very safe now - hopefully saved by a darkride part before and during the lift as well as before the station.

Nobody can blame them by taking the more safe ride this time.
When you saw how many issues they had with VH and the costs which increased dramatically.
And they still have Hartenhof which they mentioned is still scheduled to be done before 2020.

Still I hope they will create something unique around the ride or even a unique layout.

I'm actually very happy that they "playing it save". Finally they seem to realise that they don't have to re-invent the wheel. Now they can focus all of their attention towards the look and feel of the ride.

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!

Just a question, is it officially confirmed it will be a B&M ride?

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

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.

I think the 37 meters, or something like that, refer to the height of the drop, right?
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Well in a way yes. The spokesman of the park had an intervieuw with a fan site and when asked if B&M would build it he said that he couldn't bring such information out but someone who knows a thing or two on coastes would know that that wasn't a thing the could keep a secret. So ina a way he did confrim it.

Anyway lates rumors also speak that it would be 30 meters of the ground and a 7,5 meter deep tunnel at the end of the drop. So for me the rumors are very likely, I mean the park can't go over the tree line and all B&M dive coasers after sheikra always had a inversion and a floorless train, so not suprised if a splash comes to the ear eather.
Also very happy it would be somewhat longer than Krake, just need to see what they mean with somewhat, knowing the Efteling it could be 1 element. :p
