Europa is great, it kinda misses a true spectacular coaster, but the entire package is amazing. A beautiful park. Do not forget Phantasialand, one of the best themed parks in Europe.

Just noticed that my camera caught this super cool shot during our Olympia Looping shoot with one of the other trains crossing over on the track!

I have loads of photos from this trip to go through! I will post more soon!

Ah awesome shot. I love how the trains interact with each other, particularly when all five are running. Such a super-cool ride which I can't wait to go on again in November.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Man, I only got to do five-car, one-train Olympia Looping at Cranger Kirmes in August. Seven-car, five-train Olympia Looping at Oktoberfest looks like an entirely different and better experience!

There are plenty of videos on you tube showing Olympia Looping with 5 train operations, it is a beauty to watch with 30 seconds dispatch times and multiple trains on track. I could watch it for hours.

Wow that ride looks quite intense! Interesting to see how it goes through the station again at the end of the ride, never seen a ride do that before! Great video! :)

When the train returned to the station, and then kept going through it, I was wondering if
you were getting a second cycle! Obviously not, but it made me pause. :smile:

What a great little (?) coaster! And a great video too, thanks Robb!
