This is really cool. Dutch Wonderland was a pleasant surprise when I visited in 2015. A family invert is a solid addition for them.

Wow! $7.5 Million is a huge investment for Dutch Wonderland

Dammit! That's more than Lightning Run cost. Have they never heard of a big coaster?

A big coaster wouldn't really fit their target demographic and from the sound of it, that cost includes the themed elements and such.

I was reading this news earlier today and I am really excited to see them getting a new coaster, and it looks like a good/unique one! Congrats to them and S&S. I can't wait to try it out!!!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I didn't know S&S built inverted coasters, but that's fine. It looks like it will be a solid coaster for Dutch Wonderland next year.

Also, I know it's just a rendition of a ride with kids photoshopped in, but the reaction that the kid on the right is having combined with how the restraints look, it looks like he's riding another yellow and blue rollercoaster in Pennsylvania that provides a very different experience.

This looks like a really fantastic investment for them, really good family coaster. Very interesting that it's from S&S too, looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

Of course, I go to the park for the first time and shell out $35 for those two credits (oh and I whored around quite a bit for any other rides of note), and now they announce this and give me another reason to go back. Either way, this is exciting news. The park really is quite nice for what it is. I just think the price point is a bit high given the quality.
