Can somebody explain why a park would want four roller coasters with the same exact color scheme? Unless they've got some homeowners' association breathing down their neck like my neighborhood does, I can't see a reason.
Last Ride: Space Mountain: Mission 2 (DLP)

That's what I was thinking, Those colors might be the most visibly pleasing to residents outside of the park? I just kind of think it's hilarious to have them all the same colors. They just need to repaint Colossos like that too!

There are no neighbors nearby the park - the whole park is surrounded by woods and fields.

The only house I know is behind Colossos and was/is the villa of the former owners of the park...
Steel: 124 - Water: 5 - Wood:17 - Total: 146
Opting for a Vekoma instead of a Schwarzkopf in the 70s and 80s - That's beyond my capacity!

As I said, they are working crazy fast. Within one day, the walls are already going up on the station.

Piraten is *the* roller coaster (after finally riding Expedition Geforce, I'll admit, it was pretty freaking awesome to!) .

This is probably going to be a small wing coaster. Could this possibly be a launching B&M wingrider?

I just found some interesting news. In about 9 days (August 18th) Heide Park has a little party thanks to the parks 35 years of existence. Off-coarse they plan a party with DJ's and shows. They also have lots of children entertainment and even a pole-sitting contest. There will be some special merchandise for the day. And on 3:00 PM there will be donuts and coffee.
But yeah that aside. What I wanted to post about has more interest to the coaster enthusiasts. It's Big, It's fast and it comes closer and closer. Heide park plans to announce the secrets of the new wing coaster of 2014 on their birthday party next sunday.

So August 18th I'll be looking forward to it.

The track is extremely close to the ground in the prelift. Very strange.

It's low like that on Raptor at Gardaland too. It does look a bit strange, but I guess there's no point elevating it, particularly as the station is at ground level.
