That looks like a fantastic ride! Should be a big hit for the park. The theming looks fantastic too.

Have yet to try out any of these "Infinity" coasters from Gerstlauer. Maybe I need to get up to Iowa soon.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Update: Gold Rush

The Monorail of the park will run right through the structure of Gold Rush.

Passengers of the monorail will soon see how riders will be launched at 95 kph. "Yesterday the monorail made its first testrun since the construction of Gold Rush", says a spokesperson. "And it did fit perfectly between the supports."

There will also be a special viewpoint from a few meters high, next to the station. That viewing area is almost completed. Also, the station building is almost finished.

Soon the train will be put on the track. Gold Rush opens on Thursday, April 13th.

Great update JordyC, it's looking fantastic and I'm definitely working out when I can tie this into a road trip from the UK to Holland. It may have to wait for 2018 but I will be sure to get out there and try it at the soonest chance.

I have to say this interests me a lot more than anything at Efteling.

also what's with theme park owners being history killers? if you've got a rare historic ride in your park you should grab it by the horns and pump money into it to keep it going! it's actually quite upsetting seeing classics get knocked down... how many jetstar II's are left now then? just that 1? that one that was taken away from alton towers blackhole

PRESERVE HISTORY! it's important! :angry:

It's nice to preserve classics, but when a park sees an opportunity to add something miles better, they'll do it. The GP won't care. After all, that's who they're catering to.
Honestly, I'd happily take this over a Schwarzkopf Looping Star any day of the week.

Also, what's so wrong with Gerstaluers? They're great!

By the way, would you HONESTLY expect a park of this size to add a B&M?
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:
