Photo TR: Opening day of Juvelen at Djurs Sommerland

Postby Hhappy » Sat May 04, 2013 4:12 pm

Today was the grand opening of Juvelen at Djurs Sommerland.

This new addition to the park is great for families that want to ride a coaster together and other people.
It has 2 launches, is tire driven and is a fun (high speed) experience.

When talking family rides i used to think "slow" things.. This ride goes crazy with that second launch. Sure it's not an airtime machine (go ride Piraten if you want airtime) but it's quick, fun and leaves a smile on your face when riding it.

In the end, that's all that matters i think. Fun for a lot of ages and sizes and therefore fun for a lot of people.

Minimum height to ride this: 120 cm
The pre show is part of the story that you are riding those ATV's in the jungle to go after a certain expensive stone.
More green will come in the first bit of the ride over time (the jungle). The pre-show will get updated as well as it's a bit too short at this time and who knows what else will be added in the future.

Looking forward to another visit next year.

This like it's pretty intense and very fun for a "family coaster!" I'd love for one to be built in the states! Great pics!

Intamin does nice work with those tire-launched family coasters. This looks like a great addition to Djurs Sommerland (it's a very good park).

Great report, Hanno! Looks like the perfect family coaster, and agree with the poster above that the theming will look great once everything grows in.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Looks like a fun family ride! Due to the launches, I'm nicknaming this "Tires-Tires-Tires!: The Ride". Certainly very twisty and looks like it's a pretty long ride too (well, anything's longer than most of the coasters at my home park :) ).

Looks fantastic! I love Jet Rescue so I'm sure I'd love this. Intamin really stepped up their motocoaster design, especially when you look at their abysmal prototype (Motocoaster at Dreamworld).
Djurs Sommerland is definitely on my bucket list now, seems to have a wonderful collection of coasters.

Interesting braking system. Looks like a great ride. Good length...but I don't know why the second launch more towards beginning of the ride versus the middle.
