Most water slides don't dispatch the next raft until it splashes down so I'm interested to know how this many rafts were sent down.
I've seen two, maybe three rafts at a time on the slide portion of these rides before, but obviously someone screwed up here and didn't stop the lift and just kept sending more rafts!!!
I always figured the blocking system on this kind of ride was pretty rudimentary to the point the conveyor belt on the lift is simply on a timer because in theory (cannot emphasise that enough) as the rafts are just inflatables there's not toooooo much that can go wrong as they would just bump into each other, but you would think they would have CCTV or something to at least have a cursory look now and again to make sure that basically every single raft on the entire ride hasn't crashed into each other because the chute has broken
Parc Astérix announces spectacular new launched roller coaster
Parc Astérix has announced a spectacular new attraction. The French theme park opens in 2021 a sensational launch roller coaster by the Swiss manufacturer Intamin. Launch coaster Taron in Phantasialand serves as an example.
That is what strategic director Frédéric Dubosc told tonight in the TV program Sept à huit on TV channel TF1. The new roller coaster will feature an LSM launch.
Nothing is known yet about the location, the theme and the layout. However, the director showed a video of Taron at his office.
^Wow that's certainly a nice addition! I haven't ridden taron but it does seem pretty good (and the reviews support this) so if it can serve as an example I'm very interested in knowing how this'll turn out.
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.
Sounds like a great addition! These Intamin launchers are real crowd pleasers that can offer a little bit of everything in the layout.

Another 2021 announcement? Wow, A lot of great projects are coming between now and then. I'm exited about this one, Taron blew me away the first time riding it and it's one of the best coaster I ever did any project inspire by that ride has high chance of being great as well.

Parc Astérix invests 6.6 million euros in new attraction
Next year, Parc Astérix opens a new attraction of 6.6 million euros. That is what director Nicolas Kremer says in an interview. In 2019, visitors to the French themepark can discover a 5D cinema, with special effects and moving chairs.
In the cinema room, an eight-minute film is shown on a screen of six meters high and twenty meters wide. There is space for 300 spectators per performance. What the film will be about is not yet known. Parc Astérix will be 30 years old in 2019.
The number of visitors to the park shows an upward trend. Last year, Parc Astérix attracted more than two million visitors for the first time. This year, the two millionth guest was welcomed at the end of August, even before the busy Halloween period.
