I noticed they had two new attractions this year. One sounds like a walkthrough of the comics and another is the 3D/4D theater. I wonder if either of those attractions took over Transdemonium's building.

It'll be interesting to see what is going on Jordy.

Practiced my French a bit and looked on some French coaster sites. They say that Transdemonium is down all season for either a complete redo or leaving!

^ Bummer that it sounds like it'll be down, but hopefully it reopens in the future. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

There's no signage in front of Transdemonium saying it's closed. There was just a gate under the entrance.

Tonnerre de Zeus was great as expected, but I was surprised by OzIris and Goudurix. I thought OzIris was supposed to be one of the weaker inverts, but it was hauling and even had 4-5 spots of airtime.

And Goudurix was oddly smooth. It wasn't glass smooth, but I only hit my head once coming out of the batwing. Was the ride retracked like the Vekoma at Efteling? I don't think this can be the same ride I've heard horror stories about.

Yeah, I'm going to stick my neck out and say OzIris is a great invert. I only noticed two pops of airtime, but the layout is great and it's definitely forceful. Not sure if it has got better with age as I have only ridden it in the last few years.

Regarding Goudurix, there was a LOT of work done to it a few years ago. The track wasn't replaced but it seemed there was a lot of welding, replacing cross-ties etc. Honestly I think Goudurix's reputation is a little unfair and I have always found it generally okaaaaaaay apart from a couple of admittedly rough transitions. It's not like El Condor where almost everything is rough.

^ Ok thanks!

l think all the older SLCs with the original restraints are brutal.

Idk what they're doing with Goudurix but it's definately nothing like with Efteling's Python. I've been told that the retracking on python has made it incredibly smooth - some people have said it's now one of the (if not the) smoothest coaster they've been on.

Hi guys,
I'm planning a trip here in July - I'm mainly a roller coaster guy but I don't mind good flat rides.
I've yet to do a proper research yet but just wondering if 1 day is enough to do most adult rides.
I'm thinking very early July as I understand it's school holidays from second week onwards.
I've done a dozen theme parks in mid-west of the US so I'm not a complete newbie but then by no means hardcore theme park fan either.
Cheers
Sam

One day is absolutely fine, and they do Parc Rapidus which is around 25€ which allows you to skip the queues on the major coasters as it can sometimes get quite busy there.

^^ Starting in mid-July they stay open until 10 pm so it does look like they compensate for crowds. I went on a cool April weekday and the park was still busy. I recommend the Unlimited Rapidus pass if you want to get a ton of rerides on the coasters. With that pass, the park can easily be done in a day.
