I'm blown away. I love it when a park goes all out on a cool theme, and this has a great back story. Efteling is at the top of my list for whenever I make it back overseas for a park trip.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

Official story (translated):

http://www.efteling.com/nieuwin2015

A greedy mining baron has found a gold vein in the south of the country. There he wants to extract as much gold as possible, but the fertile soil is protected by the White Wives*. The mining baron calls his miners and promises them mountains of gold. During the ride it becomes clear that the White Wives do everything in their power to sabotage the mining. Do you dare to take the dive?

That is an amazing look for a dive machine. I'm definitely going to make sure to visit this park next year.

Oh my God this is so good news. I'm happy this is my home park this Dive is more stunning than Krake or Oblivion in concept arts. So I'm sure I will enjoy seeing this come to live in front of my very own eyes.

This looks amazing. It's too bad I'll likely never get to ride it. I'm blown away by the theming.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Looks like great theming again from a park on the other side of the pond. I wish more parks would really go all out on the theming like Universal and Disney do. It just adds another awesome phase to a coaster.

Hope the real one has this awesome support. It remains a concept art and we all know they rarely look completely the same ( the fact that we have this Mine lift is for sure, but might look in some way different.), I hope the real version looks like this though it looks awesome.

The theming looks great, hope it turns out like that. And are there floorless trains? seems like they are from what i can see.
