I really like what Slagharen is going to build. I think it'll be a very fun ride and a great replacement for Loopingstar. A good coaster for the park.

But the moment I saw a video of the ride, I knew there was going to be a load of complaints by a lot of Dutch "coaster enthusiasts". Talk a bout people having WAY too high expectations (a lot were expecting a Junker/Karacho size coaster, some probably even bigger :roll: ). It was fun and sad at the same time reading through the comments on the Dutch forums. :?r
Luckily there are still a few of us that are realistic and can appreciate this coaster. :)

I'm really looking forward to seeing this ride go up and ride it next year. Especially since the park is not that far away. :airtime:

I really like this. What seems to be happening is that other companies are seeing Premier's Sky Rocket II concept, and coming up with even better layouts. These types of rides have been perfect for small to mid-size parks, and even one large park (BGW). These types of rides are becoming the Boomerangs of the 21st century, and I am very happy about that.

My only question left is, who is the manufacturer of this?

I love donkeys more than me.

Slagharen presents the first design of the train of the new launch coaster Gold Rush. The train is designed as a kind of old-fashioned carriage from the Wild West, with wheels on the side and a lamp on the front. There will be five rows for a total of 20 persons per train.

I'm sure we've all seen this video:



Slagharen has told Looopings.com the amount of bookings for the 2017 season has increased because of the video that has gone viral worldwide.

Ga trump! Make slagharen great again.
