Original Post:

Looks like another great addition to the park. I wonder what type of roller coaster and by whom it will be made by. Any guesses or rumors? Anyhow, I just thought I would help spread the news.

"With over 50 attractions including 6 take-your-breath-away roller coasters, 4 wild water tracks and a unique Indian museum, Bobbejaanlaand is amongst the very best of Europe’s most popular amusement parks. And to top it all off there are also such super attractions as the indoor amusement park Kinderland and various live shows.
The huge number of attractions keeps waiting times and the associated frustration to an absolute limit. In their turn the many covered attractions make sure that your feet stay dry during your visit to Bobbejaanland no matter what the weather.
After the more than amazing innovations of recent years – such as the Typhoon, Sledge Hammer and Oki Doki, in 2006 Bobbejaanland is premiering 2 brand new attractions to tantalise your senses:

* NEW IN 2006: In the Dream Catcher you and your entire family take a mysterious trip through the secretive dream world of the Indians. This rollercoaster drags you over churning water and through the worst storm ever ... and all of this with your legs in the air!
* NEW IN 2006: In the interactive attraction Desperado City you and 60 other sheriffs hop on your horses toward adventure, shooting fearful foes with your personal revolvers. How many bad guys can you hit from atop your lurching steed?

In short: in 2006 Bobbejaanland will once again amaze its visitors with its wealth of surprises…weather or not!

Sounds good for Bobbejaanland. Dream Catcher seems interesting, sounds like an indoor inverted coaaster.

The new additions sound great. Dream Catcher sounds like a Vekoma suspended family coaster. Desperado City sounds like one of those rides where you sit in a car and the car moves around while you shoot at random targets. It all sounds great for the kids, teens, and the kids and teens at heart.

And I told myself I will NOT get a season pass in 2006... With this news I'll be getting one again....

Since they already do have a vekoma suspended coaster, dream catcher is rumoured to be the Air Race coaster re-themed to an Indian theme by adding floorless trains. This is a good step to take because Air Race is by far the weakest link of Bobbejaanland's coasters. (I think Robb and Elissa can confirm that) This should make a very good line-up together with the new dark ride next year.
This park has really developed to the positive the last few years.

^That's really interesting.

I would agree it was the weakest coaster, which was very disappointing to me since I had been looking forward to it for so long! A retheme would be interesting, but I can't see the Indian theme getting all the way over there. And another shooting ride!!! Well, that should rule!!!

Seeing as how the park already has the GREATEST SHOOTING RIDE EVER, they will have to work hard to try and match that level of quality... :D


New Attraction for Bobbejaanland

Fri Jul 14, 2006 12:40 am

I just saw something on the German channel we have, called BVN and i was watching the news (nothing else was onn the TV) and suddenly they said something about Bobbejaanland and a new attraction! (If you were wondering how i understand german, Afrikaans and German are amost identical.)

After a couple of unrecognisable words, a concept art picture came up of a Giant frisbee with a kind of African theme. :shockr:

Anyone know anything about this? :?r

(if this is old news, please don't bash me!)

Fri Jul 14, 2006 2:18 am

That giant frisbee is the Sledgehammer. The new attraction might be Dreamcatcher.

Fri Jul 14, 2006 3:01 am

I went to the Park at the end of May and both rides were working fine.

Sledgehammer looks :evil: and I would never go on that type of ride

Dreamcatcher was fun, water cannons are used when the train is over the lake.

Their Clown coaster has a very good 1st curved drop and layout.
