Original Post

Holiday Park
is offering parts of last year's lift cable for sale. It costs 40 euro's and you get the 6 or 7 inch piece of cable with a stand and a certificate. There were only 3 left yesterday and I bought one. You can see the pictures at the below website and you'll be able to see some onride photo's of what we did yesterday.

Heres the on ride photo-

They've been selling pieces of cable for years. Every time a cable gets replaced they chop up the old one and sell it.

Yeah, even as much as I love this ride, I didn't bother buying a piece of cable two years ago. If it had been a bit cheaper maybe, but it wasn't!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This is actually really good, the park needed a more 'junior' coaster. Something less destructive then the Vekoma Corkscrew and slightly less intimidating than GeForce!

Oh, and Bonus Credit for the TPR Europe Trip!

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

The park could really use more coasters.

Das ist sau geil! Ha ha - knew something new was on the horizon from my visit last Autumn, but didn't realise it would be a new coaster! The construction area is along the route towards Super-Wirbel, not so far from the main entrance if you head 'round to the right.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

That's disappointing. I'm sure they held an event a couple of years ago where they got a bunch of enthusiasts to discuss ideas for a future coaster. Pretty sure I read that they wanted to create something to compete with GeForce. When I was there last year recording a piece for BBC radio they were asking lots of questions about wooden coasters.

Perhaps the mouse is a stop gap for something bigger next year.
