That looks like a very fun ride! Yes it's short, but for a small park it will be a great addition!

Why are the Dutch coaster nerds so annoying? I've just had to delete a TON of whining and complaining off our social media pages basically because this ride "isn't as good as what Efteling builds." I'm so sick of all the stupid Efteling fanboys. I honestly think they are tied for some of the worst theme park dorks out there. I'd like to put them, the Alton Towers fanboys and the Disneyland fanboys into a Thunderdome-like fight to the death. I hope there are no survivors.

Anyway, I think this ride looks GREAT! Might even try to get out there next year and ride it.

And here come the Efteling fanboys in 3... 2... 1...

:nina:
I assume there will be a live stream of this...?? ;)

Edit: After looking the park up on Bing maps and seeing the small size of the park I'm convinced this will be a perfect fit for the park, and an absolute fitting replacement for the Schwarzkopf Looping Star!

I can't honestly tell whats wrong with other Dutch people, we really need to complain about literally anything. :p

The ride looks great, I mean perfect for Slagharen it seems like a great upgrade for them. I'm going to be honest Slagharen is not a park I see myself visiting anytime soon, but this ride seems like a lot of fun and I hope I see myself one day in a car of the coaster.

This looks great! Sure a full single launch would be better and the layout is short but for a park of this size, it is above my expectations and looks like a great unique addition. I am sad to see the Schwarzkopf go though.

This is exactly the kind of small addition I would love to see at a park like Lake Winnie one day. I certainly wouldn't complain.
