Looks interesting, I like it when the parks go the extra mile to do teasers.

It's about freaking time. I love Europa Park with all my heart, but I can honestly say, they need something new.

My guess is it's going to be an Intamin Rocket coaster. I've heard many stories, like a 15 looper, and such.

I hope that it will be as good as all there other coasters. :P

It's going to be a Mack ride, and certainly not a 15-looper.

As far as I am concerned I'm expecting something not much more thrilling than Rock'n'RollerCoaster/Xpress. And I find RNRC extremely boring. I can't count the times I've heard lambda guests of the park ranting about the lack of a looping coaster, so I'm pretty sure it will be an instant hit for the gp. However my expectations as an enthusiast are low.

Maybe it's a used Boomerang!


My son graduates from High School in three years and were going to make a visit overseas then! Can't wait, hope all of the Europe parks get into a coaster war the next two years!

After having been on coasters with 8 and 10 inversions, I can say that fifteen would be horrible and highly unlikely for any ride. Having that many inversions would make for a fun time watching the people getting off. :lmao:

This one was too funny! Nothing says terrifying new coaster more than a freaked out cat singing opera.... :lmao:

Also Desert Race at Heide Park launches to its max speed in 2,4 seconds. Maybe this is a clone with a similar launch and a few inversions.

I also doubt it would be a Mack designed just because Europa Park is more intressted in quality. I highly doubt they would spend millions of euro on a Mack. They would probably spend that much money on a B&M, Intamin, and maybe a Vekoma, Arrow/ S&S.

According to rcdb.com:

Roland Mack gave in interview to a local German newspaper in which he elaborated on the park's expansion plans. The park will be enlarged with 70-85 hectares which are now still situated outside the park's boundaries. For this to happen, the access road will be moved. The centerpiece of the new themed area will be a new roller coaster. According to Roland Mack, the ride will feature elements and techniques, never seen before.

Teasers on the park's website hint this roller coaster will have a 2.5 second launch and inversions.


Could it also be a launched eurofighter? Those would probably have techniques never before seen.

^^:)

nice one!

But really, it's just some really stupid German expression that's completely lost in translation. AstroDancer already gave an idiomatic translation. Literally, it's "take off like Mr. Schmidt's cat"
Totally silly, as most of the other slogans Europapark used there.
Am I the only one to think that the ads look rather cheap?

I can't say much other than you're comment couldn't be further from the truth.

You do know that Europa Park is own by Mack and one of the purposes of the park is to be a "Mack Showroom" for all their ride products, right?
