Unfortunately I don't have news from Ekatomb neither Crazy Wagon. They both remain out of service....
The good news is that the park confirmed a new Intamin roller coaster for 2012. They didn't give much details nor unveiled the layout.
All we know is that the coaster in being manufactured right now and Armando (Hopi Hari CEO) and Stefan (Chief Engineering) are going to Europe next week to check on the parts painting.
The first parts shipment is planned to arrive at the park on mid october. The site construction starts in a couple weeks.
According to the park, this is going to be the longest and tallest roller coaster in South America (considering the coasters in operation, which means not counting Mirabilandia's GIB - still OTG - and Parque De La Ciudad's Vertigorama, which never opened to the public).
The still unnamed coaster will have it's debut to the public in March 2012.
