And kudos to you for a very artistically angled shot of the giant Ferris Wheel!

Condor wrote:First of all, great review and photos! But I'm going offer a dissenting opinion. I visited Movie Park for the first time this August and I honestly thought Star Trek was the tamest, weakest, most disappointing new coaster of this scale since Dorney Park's Hydra. I'll agree with JordyC that back row on the back spike and first hill are the two best parts. After that I felt the train simply traveled too slowly for anything else in the layout to deliver. This new trend of slow, forward-backward launches really bothers me as it negates the whole point of a launch to begin with: sudden acceleration. The whole middle portion from the reverse flying snake dive to the cammelbacks felt awkward with no significant positive forces or airtime. I wasn't impressed with the theming or Federation Plaza either. I applaud Movie Park for trying and I realize this was done on less than a Europa/Phantasialand budget, but all of it felt extremely cheap.
Condor wrote:Movie Park has a few good rides like Van Helsing, High Fall, and the best standard Frisbee I've seen, but I just don't understand what some of its fans see in the place. I went to 10 parks across Germany and The Netherlands on this trip and Movie Park is the only one I don't think I'll ever go back to. At least when it comes to Star Trek, most people seem to like it. I thought Blue Fire was not just slightly better, but significantly. If I gave that coaster an 8/10 I might give Star Trek a 6.
