I rode it in its second or third year. It was quite rough but really really intense. The turn out of the two corkscrews looked impossibly tight and was really forceful. The first drop, loop and turn were great too, and the ride finished with a really intense helix. The ride ran something like 5 trains so the brakes did slow the trains a lot but in between it was amazing. I did hear it got really rough, even after they did a lot of work to smooth it out.

It was such a gigantic coaster. It was really intimidating and one of the few coasters to give me butterflies before I rode it. I don't think we'll ever see another ride quite like it :(

Annoying, impatient and needs to be kicked by a donkey.

^ yeah it does look pretty cool. But I doubt it was kept in very good condition at Gorky park.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

A reader has sent in some photos of Eurostar being stored somewhere in Russia. These photos are from 2012. No other information given. No idea if these parts are still there or have been scrapped.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I will take it if no one else wants it.
Is this a trick question?

The sad thing is that Eurostar has left Germany to presumably rust away, that Olympia Looping is constantly rumoured to be on borrowed time and no big new coasters seem to be replacing them. I think Eurostar was our Concord moment and we'll never see anything like that again.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Glad to see photos of Euro Star! Sad to see the shape it is in. I was always fascinated by Euro Star. It was amazing that the coaster was a large as it was, and yet still portable! It even seemed to have a pretty decent layout!
Bigger is not always better.

^as do I! it'll be like a giant erectorset!

Anyways, it's really a damn shame this ride is basically dead, left to rust away, and be forgotten. A little piece of roller coaster history :(

It might not provide much info about the current state of the ride, but this article has a lot of info about the design and construction of the Eurostar and also has quite a few interesting pictures of it.

Here's a few pics from the article
