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, or S&S.


So you say Europa Park thinks that Mack Rides lack Quality? You are aware that the Europa Park is owned by the Mack Family, right? Except for Silver Star all their rides are Mack, so your statement doesn't really make sense.

I am really excited for their new Addition and wonder what exactly will make it a "World's first"...

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 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?


I wasn't sure but I did figure since the brothers who own the park have the same last name as the company. I was basing my guess off what I've heard from rumors, the general public, among others, and since I don't really know much about what the coaster is going to be, I agreed with them.

But I now stand corrected. :oops:

I'm sure a "launch spinning coaster with inversions" is the real missing ride on the market at the moment...!!! Who will be the first to introduce this??? Intamin has already realized somthing similar without inversions (you know... coaster experts... Comet Express!!!). Why not...??? ;) :lmao: :butt:

So with the premise of World's First and the current teasers, some ideas on what IMHO could fit.

Launched Spinning Coaster
Launched Spinning Coaster with Inversions
Spinning Inverted Coaster

Of course you could carry that on, but some of these ideas seem unlikely enought.

I just hope they don't pull a cheap one on the "World's First" as in "World's First Mack Launched Coaster" or something like that ;)

Last year they announce Pony Express at Knott's before I go, and now it's Europa...

I'm cursed :P

An inverted launched spinning coaster with inversions sounds pretty interesting.

I can't wait to know more about it!

This rollercoaster will be a Mack Ride. I envisage a RnR style launch followed by a Maverick style layout.

However, it is not true that only Silver Star is not Mack. Vindjammer is Huss, Fjord Rafting is Intamin, Euro-Tower is Intamin, Crazy Taxi and London Bus are Zamperla :br

1. Mack basically owns Europa Park, so most likely their new coaster will be a Mack. 2. Arrow went bankrupt years ago.

^
1.) Silver Star wasn't a Mack, and it's the parks most popular, so the chances of it not being a Mack is okay (And I aware of the fact they own the park) 2.) Arrow is owned by S&S. So your right, I forgot about that. I'll edit it. ;)

European rumours talk about a magnetic launch followed by a top hat, a loop, a double corkscrew and a final heartline roll. Nothing original exept the fact that it would be from Mack.

As far as advertising is concerned, this kind of ads has already been done (and in a better way), particularily the one with the sling shot:

Compared to

This kind of reminds me of the spirit of this video :




:lolr:

Edit: ^ Mack considered doing the hypercoaster thmeselves, but they realised they weren't technically advanced enough to carry the project out, thus they gave it to B&M. Some people here have very good reasons to believe it's a Mack. If you want it to be a B&M or an Intamin, that's your choice, but you might end up disappointed... ;)
