I think it looks great. It may be a clone but at least they put something new in. I went in 2003 & there was talk of assorts of coasters back then. Has Tussauds finely started to make something of this park. Also is it not strange your Tussauds Pass do's not get you in there park. :roll:

Nice colors, nice lay-out and nice theme, i'm satisfied. Okay, its a bit of a shame that it's a clone, but it's still a good coaster.

Wow, i think that just might be the best color scheme I've seen on any coaster, I love it! Can't wait to see the finished product!

I was hoping for a highly themed rocket coaster. And wow! It looks like it´s going to happen! Did they look at the competing park phantasialand where Black Mamba showed that theming can boost a small coaster to one of the best rides in Europe?

I'm looking forward to Desert Race! And scream and the massive airtime in Colossos ofcourse! Heide Park does have a nice selection of rides when Desert Race is finished.

I have not had the joy of "riding" Rita, I wonder if "Rita" will be tweeked for more speed next season, see if it can reach 70mph. :)

It looks nice and blends in well with everything else. Love to see it longer, more bunny hops and go through the supports of their Woodie.

I still can't understand why "Rockets" have a "set of trims" on an :airtime: hill when they should be placed on a straight bit of track after the hill. Everyone on board can enjoy getting "airbourne".

It's the husband of Rita!!

Well, it looks more twisted. Nice colors 'cause somehow it blended really well with the surroundings for me.

Hope this will be a good coaster!!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I like the choice of colours on that coaster definately a deserty type colour, and I bet it will really go well with the theming too. It definately is a nice holiday from all the intamin red and white coasters we are seeing right now.

Testing has started, the trains are the basic Accelerator trains. There is one Blue train and one Red train which colour does not suit the theme or the ride.

The brakes on the last hill slow it down lots so the last turn is taken at a very low speed.
