Official Press Release Here!

Adventure World, a small theme park in Perth, Australia, will be getting a new custom eurofighter for late 2013. Its been discussed on Australian coaster sites for quite some time while basic, unremarkable groundwork was being done but now we have seen the first proper construction update with track for an indoor dark section going up, so I figured it was noteworthy enough to post here. I'm really excited to see how the layout for this coaster turns out based off some of Gerstlauer's latest projects. It's cool to see that the indoor inline twist is becoming a trademark for Gerstlauer's coasters (Saw, Takabisha, Smiler, Karacho). I have to say, the indoor layout for this coaster looks startlingly similar to Saw the Ride's indoor layout.

I hope it's more of a crazy ride like the older eurofighters.

Remains to be seen if this will get a launch or a tower...

This is great news!

It gives us a reason to go to Perth on our next TPR Australia Trip! It also helps with the coaster count so we can do another TPR Australia Trip!

Please keep us updated!

^It has been kind of sad that for a long time there were more at SFMM than in the whole of Australia. I definitely feel that what the local parks lack in quantity they make up for in quality and uniqueness. Can't wait to see how this turns out!

Exactly. After visiting Australia with TPR a few years ago, I felt that many of our Aussie members were undervaluing what their country had when it came to parks and coasters.

This really is a Big Deal for Perth, where the nearest permanent coaster before this happened was 3500km away in Melbourne or the Gold Coast (except a kiddie coaster at this same park).

They've kept the nature of this "Mi1" attraction very secret, apparently they make an official announcement of something next week.

All I can say is "...Finally we get one!" :b

This is great news. This new coaster will definitely attract more visitors, and hopefully, boost the local economy.
