Photo TR: Europa Park Winter Opening & GCi Woodie Update!

Postby Hhappy » Sat Jan 07, 2012 3:14 pm

At this time i'm spending the weekend at Europapark to check out the winter opening and progress on the new wooden Coaster.
Winter opening and the amount of lights used is just amazing and the new coaster.. Looks very very impressive.

Here's a bunch of pictures i took today to show different angles for this coaster and the current state of the build.

Enjoy.

Some technical details:
The ride will have 3 trains (GCI First), rubber wheels (GCI first) with the hard and soft option if needed and lapbars only.

I'll add some night pictures in a next update

Europa is doing a beautiful job with this ride. I love the way it interacts with the rides surrounding it. =)

I still think that layout looks wickedly delicious. Thanks for the in-depth look!

Now I'm all the more eager to hear rider reports once opening day comes around.

This is my most anticipated project of the year! It just looks so right and perfect flowing through the park.
