^^Unexpected intensity! This is going to kick some serious A$$ :b .
You're right, the model appears to be much lamer than the actual track...

The more I see of this ride the more excited I get about visiting the park again! This has to be one of the sexiest woodies there is!

Wow, very exciting pictures. According to the article, Wodan won't be open to public before the 30th of April. This seems to be a delay, since the park previously announced March 31st as opening date, no?

Seems to be a mistake made by the author. Never heard about this before. But feel free to correct me.

Yeah: First post here. Don't know why I've waited that long till I registered.

there are two different sources... the official europa-park homepage still says it will open with the beginning of the season, but the man who writes the blog answered in the official EP-Fan Forum, that they were suprised by themselves when the architect and the construction supervisor said it will open at this date. And he mentioned that they send their blog report to the officials of the Europapark to let it it check and get the permittion to publish it. So maybe it's a correct date

here is the original post from the blogger from http://www.ep-board.de/die-neuheiten-2012-2013-f42/2012-wodan-timburcoaster-t5342-s1640.html:

wir staunten auch nicht schlecht, als uns der 30. April als Eröffnungsdatum, von Architekt und Bauleiter des Europa-Park, Herr Kind, genannt wurde.
Wo doch die Fertigstellung, der Holzachterbahn an sich, schon Mitte-Ende Februar sein soll.

Der Europa-Park hat vor unserer Veröffentlichung nochmals über den Bericht drüber gelesen und hatte nichts auszusetzen.
Daher ist davon auszugehen, dass der 30. April zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt zutreffend ist


and the google translation:

We were amazed not bad, as we of the 30th April was named as the opening date, architect and construction manager of the Europa Park, Mr. Kind.
But where the completion of the wooden roller coaster in itself, already supposed to be mid-late February.

The Europa-Park has read our paper again before the report and had no complaints about it.
Therefore, it is assumed that 30 April is applicable at this time
