So today I had the opportunity to check out Gold Rush at Attractiepark Slagharen.
This new for 2017 coaster is replacing the parks old Looping Star which for many people in the Netherlands could have been their first coaster with an inversion in it.
Anyway, the coaster is a lot of fun. It's not the longest, highest, steepest or craziest but it's a lot of fun. Great addition to the park and it's going to do very well for the park. You have to be 130cm to ride this coaster and the kids seemed to really like it. Some parents looked more scared than their kids (what else is new these day) but I have not heard a bad word about the ride at all during my visit. Plenty of room around the ride to look at it from all angels to keep the non-riders entertained as well.
Anyway, picture time. Hope you like it.

Looks cool, and great photos. 5 car trains- is this the longest Gerstlauer has gone for their Eurofighter/Infinity Coaster? Looks different.
