Cool TR, just noticed it now. That Café park looks very green and well landscaped. I haven't been to Colombia, but looks very green like Brazil, which I've been too. I like how the relocated Schwarzkopf coaster is intergrated into the terrain and I always love a scenic sky ride. I'm glad this park is getting some love with a new Gerstlauer Eurofighter. Thanks for sharing.

Visited the park yesterday. We got there by 9:00am because we knew the park was gonna be packed since today it's a holiday lots of people chose to travel. It was a sunny warm day, by the middle of the day the park was crowded, fortunately we were done with the rides with wanted by them. The park has a bunch of kiddie rides, I realsie now I didn't take many pictures of those, since I'm the younger of the group and I'm 22 with didn't stopped by those, but next time I make sure I will get them for you.
Krater terrain preparation seems pretty much done, track its on site, but no sight of vertical construction yet. There isn't a specific opening date yet, it's only being advertised as "coming soon", on the park map, but it's aiming for a december opening date. I haven't follow any eurofighter construction so I'm not sure if they have enough time to get it ready by december. Acording to the park's facebook, Krater features a 95° degree drop, has an 80Km/h speed aprox., a loop, a "cobra corkscrew", and a 360° corkscrew, this are roguh translation from the spanish name of the inversions, which aren't very clear, acording to rcdb it's the same model as "Iron Shark".
You can get many on-ride photos as there are many photographers spreading around the park, they take pictures of you and then give a number for you to check out your group photos. So there aren't actually on-ride cameras but you get great on-ride photos, they have them for Broca, River Rapids, Log Flumme and Bumper Boats.
Here we are
Chairlift takes you to the "Bolivar Square", then from there you can walk to the four areas where the rides are spread.
We see you Krater construction site.
Wee see you Broca, althoguh that's its oficial name, now it is listed as "rollercoaster" on the park map, and everyone refers to it to as "rollercoaster". I hope they change the name back once Krater opens.
Broca was running two trains since the vry beginning of the day.
We were soaked after riding the log flumme.
Go-karts were running only half-circuit to avoid long lines, it gets packed even thoguh you can only ride then once.
Then we headed for "Cumbre". Cumbre and River Rapids are in front of each other separated by a bridge. they're both newest rides on the park, and Krater will be next to River Rapids
River Rapids were next. They were a great addition to the park, not only because they're first ot its kind in Colombia, but because the park was in desperate need of a high capacity family ride.
Krater's sexy red track!
Another shot at Krater's construction site.
So 3 of the 4 areas were the rides are are connected also by the slowest train I've ever seen. And this is once of the tran's stations, each of then resembles an actual train station of the region.
We're heading back to Bolivar's Square now. Here's another look at Broca, which by this part of the day had 1 hour wait.
Log flumme was pretty busy too, I'm glad we got here early.
This is Bolivar's square, there's the chairlift station, a foodcourt, a chapel and this train station.
This it's the park main show called "Show del Café" (Coffee's show), it's all about coffee and dancers. I haven't seen it yet.
This its what the upper side of the park looks like. That's the Museum of Coffee and Juan Valdez it's right there too.
This it's the view from Juan Valdez. Hoe y'all enjoyed the Photo trip report, let me know if you have any questions about the park.
^It appears to be a clone of Iron Shark. Pretty interesting choice given how that ride was designed to fit on a pier and they have a pretty open plot of land, but I do prefer that model to the Rage one.
I'm impressed with how quickly they got this ride up. It definitely looks like an Iron Shark clone, and considering how I really enjoyed Iron Shark, I'm glad to see a clone of it popping up in a part of the world that doesn't have a lot of roller coasters.
