Awesome! Good thing I put off Finland for another year. I wonder if this is the prototype that Intamin made...

Although for 3 million euros and 456 feet, I doubt it.

Go Suomi!

That's cool. Its a small coaster, but it fits perfect with the park.

Awesome! That will make our 2008 TPR Scandiavian trip that much better!

I only hope it can get Dan as wet as the water coaster! :b

Ball coaster? What's that?

Go almost all the way to the bottom. Picture a cross between the Intamin Impulses, X and the X-Cars.

German site, that is mainly just coverage of one of the trade shows in Europe ... much like IAAPA.
