Krater looks great and like a fun ride! The park seems to have both Krater and Broca landscaped very well.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I guess I'll post this here since this seems to function as the "park thread".... There was a horrific accident on Krater, the parks Gerstlauer Eurofighter, where a disabled rider was thrown from the ride during the first drop and is in critical condition. It says the rider was disabled, but it does not state in what form. The accident was caught on video from distance.

:shockr: :?r

A disabled man is fighting for his life after falling 32ft from a roller coaster.

Laureano de Jesus Ospina suffered severe injuries after he plummeted from the National Coffee Park's Krater roller coaster as it neared the bottom of one of its near-vertical drops.

The horrifying moment he slammed into the ground was caught in shocking mobile phone footage by a visitor to the theme park in Colombia.

He was rushed to the nearby La Sagrada Familia hospital where he is in a "critical" condition.

It happened during the weekend, the guy who felt doesn't have both legs, so he shouldn't have been allowed to ride. He is still in the hospital. His wife was on national news in Colombia, she said she ask the operators if it was safe for him to ride in his condition. She also caught the accident in video, as did other visitor.

^Thanks for the info! Good to hear there was nothing wrong with the ride itself (which is usually the case when these things happen).

I am annoying as f**k!!!

So sad I missed out on this park. I passes it while travelling around Columbia. At least I rode some great zip lines.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

New Family Coaster coming to the park!

I just stumbled across their post in Facebook and youtube announcing the new rollercoaster "Yippe", inspired by the old jeeps that are sometimes still use to transport the bulks of coffee from town to town and growths. the coaster will be opening on march 23rd.

Hey!

So now that I'm back in Colombia, I finally got to go to the park and meet face to face with Yippe. Yippe is great for family fun, and it really takes advantage of the terrain (it reminded me of Dollywood's FireChaser). It launches out of the station (a first in Colombias by the way) and then does a little turn before climbing up the lift hill. It has a good pace and heard a lot of parents and kids talking about "how fast" it is for a family coaster, which is good. It surprise me that it have about four interactive fountains - one right out of the station, second one just a regular fountain that shoots as you pass by, the third one is really cool since is kind of a "water tunnel" just little fountains that create an arch around the track and the train and the last one is a splash down little the one in Shambbala.

Overall, the park its pretty well keep, beautiful as always, nice staff and rides looking shinny. I'm glad to see that the management does a great job with it and they keep putting more rides.

Hope you enjoy this mini photo trip report.
