There is finally clarity about the opening of the new wooden coaster Heidi: The Ride in Plopsaland De Panne. The rollercoaster opens in the first half of April 2017, during the Easter holidays. The Flemish theme park has just announced this in a press release.

Originally it was intended that the ride would be operational this month. Due to problems with the environmental permit for the park, the opening was postponed. Now it is clear that Heidi The Ride will open in about eight months.

The park wanted to open the rollercoaster this summer without any theming. The corresponding area Heidiland, shaped like a Swiss mountain village, would be themed later. By delaying the opening date, there is enough time to decorate the whole area.

Also, there are wooden tunnels placed in some places of the coaster. This should counteract noise.

^ Oh. Dear. God. . . :?r

It looks like they strap a backyard privacy fence to the coaster. I know it's still early(ish) so I'm hoping they do something to it to make it blend in a little better.

I have no problems with the aesthetics, much better than not having the coaster.

Also, lets wait and see what they do with it. The panels provide a unique canvas.

I thought it looked very odd, at first.

But then I thought, maybe they're figuring out a way to buffer noise plus
creating theming and scenery, (a Swiss Village?) you rush by, on it!

My five cents. :airtime:
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

Oh dear.

Well, it's interesting that they're boxing in the coaster, but it isn't the first time it's happened (Psyké Underground). And I'd be all for them doing something special with that setup.
Half of my posts on here are of me talking about roller coasters, but without me actually having rode them. I hate this.

I don't think they're boxing it in, they're just adding sound walls along that entire side of the layout and then a tunnel or two. Think Gold Striker.
