^Woah!.. Haven't followed the construction of this beast for a while (used to before I joined). It's turned out great! Gerslaur really seems to be moving up in the industry! :)

Catching up after being away for a few weeks... Karacho looks like another serious win for Gerstlauer. They're serious on a roll these days!

^I really didn't like it.

It rode pretty awkwardly to be honest. Not rough or painful by any means, just more weird and uncomfortable. It seems to me like Gerstlaur still hasn't perfected their heart lining or something like that.

Idk, just my thoughts. It probably didn't improve my opinion of the ride to see the park only running 2 of their 4 trains within two weeks of opening...

I taste better with A1

How does it compare to Blue Fire?


Blue Fire was great.

Karacho was not.

I'm surprised to see several negative comments about the ride. I was there last month with ACE, and everyone seemed to really love it. And that tends to be a pretty picky crowd, especially when it comes to looping coasters. It was easily the best Eurofighter I've been on.

Our ERT session on Karacho almost got rained out. We had a couple of hours at the park before closing, then a few more the following morning. But about an hour or two before closing, the heavens opened up, for some of the only rain we got on the entire trip. The rain stopped only a very short time before the park was closing. But they still managed to open up G'Sengte Sau for a short time, to give some people time to get a ride in before they closed. Unfortunately, I'd given up hope on the rain letting up, and had slowly dashed with friends from point to point all the way back to the front, so I had to walk all the way back to that part of the park, and just missed G'sengte Sau (though I did get to ride the following morning.)

But they quickly had Karacho open for our ERT session, and even opened up a special walkway cut through under the loading station so we wouldn't have to walk all the way around. They did have all trains running, and were loading the coaster very efficiently. And I don't remember the mid-course being on much, if at all. I honestly thought it was the best use of the Eurofighter technology I'd seen yet. Pure fun, with a lots of drops and directional changes that flowed into each other well and didn't seem awkward. If I hadn't already sent my Golden Tickets ballot in, I'd have given it the vote for best new ride. Honestly, it was one of the best surprises of the trip. I hadn't been expecting much for the coaster (or the park, to be honest), but loved it (and the park)! I even squeezed in one more ride the following morning.

The ride is getting the love for it's station and landscaping, that they never got around to last year, and it looks great so far!

Nice to see some progress. Isn't the station supposed to be kind of buried underground?
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.
