Hello there, I will go back to the park in two days and I have some questions.

First of all, the last time I went to the park I wasn't able to ride Karnan in the first row as they assigne you random seats and everytime in unpredictable. I was asking if there's a sort of combination to memorize or if it's random every ride (or day, i don't know) ? If the combination is always the same, where do I have to stand for the first row?
The second question is, is it true that they removed the single rider line? People have told me that but it seems strange to me.

The seat assignment is completely random, but if you haven't been there since Kärnan`s opening season I think you will be pleasantly surprised by how they do it :)
There is no longer a single rider line.

I love donkeys more than me.

I can't wait to go to Hansa Park and ride Karnan in October! Karnan's drop out of that tower into those inversions looks insane!

I rode it twice today, and there does not seem to be any random element, other than which row enters first. The left row was always the front row, but not always the first to board. People still sat in the row they were standing in.

There was no single rider queue today.

But the cycle time was around 3:20-3:30, so capacity at current operations is around only 260 people per hour at the quicker end.

It was a very quiet day today, and the wait ranged from 30min to 60min

Peter.

PS if you get there close to opening time there is free street parking at the entrance right next to the disabled spots.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Those aren't inversions. They're the most ridiculously twisted lengths of steel on earth that try their best to eject you from your seat.

But seriously, they're not inversions. There's only one upside-down moment and it isn't outside.

Last time I went it was random, I remember that left row was third row and that center-to-left row was last row .
I hope I will be lucky enough to ride it in the front this time!

I'm back from Hansa Park. The new drop system didn't change the drop that much, it just makes it a little bit longer.. but it's almost the same thing, I don't think I would have noticed the difference without reading on forums that now is "XXL"
Anyway, the thing that YES I have noticed is that I they made something to the ride.. like, changing the wheels or something like that, because the coaster was running way faster than the year the ride opened! I mean, it already was my favourite coaster.. the first year the bunny hops gave quite good ejector, the first element after the drop just some floating air..
But yesterday.. HOLY CRAP, the coaster (especially in the late afternoon, the later the better) was intense, very intense! The heart element after the drop strongly ejected me out of the seat while twisting, the overbanked transiction was violent and ejected me one more time.. and the two bunny hops were like OMG, the ejector was seriously strong! I didn't ride yet El toro or Sky Rush but the ejector was surely more intense than expedition ge force and even than taron.
Now the coaster is perfect, intense, funny, with an awesome theming and maybe the most original ride on the hearth. A perfect mix for a gorgeous ride. The only bad thing I noticed is that the ride is starting rattling.. is not that bad now but I hope it won't get worse in the next years.

Park manager Christian Leicht spilled the beans on some of the stuff we can expect in 2018:

- Nessie is set to receive a full thematization. The sand dunes and plants they added last year were only the beginning
- The entrance area will continue to expand, this time adding buildings from Hanseatic-era Poland, including the famous Gdansk crane

Image


- Kärnapulten and Kleine Zar will receive added theming as previously announced
- A statue of Erik VI has been placed in the Mexican area behind Kärnan, suggesting the whole area will receive a re-theme

I just watched the TPR video. Surely enough, they really don't ever get past just overbanked.

I only came in here because I heard about the freefall moment on the lift. Gerstlauer is too OP. :lover:

[and the 200th post; stuff]
Half of my posts on here are of me talking about roller coasters, but without me actually having rode them. I hate this.
