^They only took out one, they were mirror images.

"Lieutenant Crunch?"
"Actually, I've been promoted. It''s Captain Crunch now."

Bobbejaanland is taking down their flying enterprise "fly away" to build a new attraction on that spot. The flying enterprise will be moved to another park in the parque reunidos group most likely.
To bad I wanted to ride it one more time after it was so awesome back in 2009 I think.

The Fly Away is an evil machine.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

The Fly Away was one horrifying looking contraption--like the Spanish Inquisition had designed an Enterprise ride.

ANY flat ride that has you lying down on your stomach with "everything" smashed into some diabolically designed
"resting spot" (HA)...should be melted down and turned into more Mega Lites!

I can't believe the Fly Away is still offered by HUSS, reintroduce the Enterprise would be a good move for them IMO.

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

Oh my God the Fly Away at Six Flags New England was simultaneously terrifying, painful, nauseating and scary. I am glad I rode it once but I'm not surprised it's gone.

Either I'm mad or I have only experienced rough rides because I also think bellewaerde's 30 year old boonerang is smooth.

2015 news

Bobbejaanland is getting a ride similar to MoviePark's "immersive tunnel" ride, now with a jungle theme.

Dutch PR:

Lichtaart, 25 september 2014 – Binnenkort start het pretpark Bobbejaanland met de bouw van een gloednieuwe attractie, die volgend voorjaar klaar zal zijn. Roland Kleve, directeur van het Plezantste Land, licht alvast een tipje van de sluier: “We hebben lang nagedacht over welke ride we zouden bouwen.

Uit onderzoek bleek dat onze bezoekers niet echt zitten te wachten op een nieuwe coaster, integendeel. Het wordt dan ook een heel ander type attractie dan het bestaande aanbod in Bobbejaanland.

Een attractie die ook een breder publiek aanspreekt. We investeren 5 miljoen euro in de bouw van een zogenaamde immersive tunnel. Letterlijk betekent dit tunnel waarin je ondergedompeld wordt. Op een oppervlakte van 1.500 m² creëren we een compleet nieuwe wereld, waar we onze bezoekers mee naartoe nemen.”

De eigenlijke bouw start binnenkort, maar in de kantoren wordt sinds geruime tijd naarstig gewerkt aan het verhaal, de uitwerking van de beleving, de teksten en omkadering van de attractie, die als werktitel “Mystery mines / Forbidden caves” meekreeg. Tijdens een jeepsafari door de jungle belanden bezoekers plots in een ondergrondse wereld met grotten en mijnschachten die bewaakt worden door exotische monsters. Dankzij moderne film- en animatietechnieken is de bezoeker niet alleen toeschouwer, maar wordt hij zelf letterlijk deel van het verhaal. In een immersive tunnel is de lijn tussen feit en fictie bijzonder dun, waardoor bezoekers de attractie beleven met al hun zintuigen.

Quick translation:

- new ride is unique in the park
- guests didn't want a new coaster
- 5 million euro
- 1,500 square meter
- working titles are "Mystery Mines" and "Forbidden Caves"
- guests take a jeep safari... and end up in "an underground world with caves and mines guarded by exotic monsters"
