Today was the media event at Gardaland for Raptor. This basically gave me the opportunity to get even more pictures of the ride and try some different things (angles) to get pictures of.
I got to watch a nice presentation and had the opportunity to get some pictures from areas where camera's usually don't go.. (as in the Que and loading area)
Somebody mentioned not getting the theme behind the ride (or something like that)
here's the story from the press release:
The story of the attraction narrates of an implacable predator, an unknown winged creature which, awoken from its ancient sleep in the subsoil of Gardaland during works for the construction of the new rollercoaster, has started to devastate the land to avenge the human insult.
The convoy represents the unknown winged predator that kidnaps (hence the dangling seats) whoever tries to tame it dragging them in an extreme flight through enormous, arid forests and devastated lands. The terrible flight of the unknown creature is filled with ruins such as a watch-tower about to fall, a tree broken in two, a bridge with protection barriers..., remains of the unstoppable fury of Raptor which become out and out obstacles of the path..
Here we go.
I do hope you like these.
