The park opened today for a special occasion, so there are new pics from inside the park!
You can see the coasters (nearly finished) and theming on Vijf Zintuigen.

Just put them here, there is no need to send them all there ;)

This is the turnaround near Piranha

Image
This part is going to be in the water. Also notice the flat turn when coming out of the turnaround.

Image
And the big fat slap of concrete is gone :D

Image
Lifthills

Ah, they also add some theming near the station location.

Image
Mhhh, now we actually see its a Vekoma, although, good paintjob for a white coaster.

Image
I can see airtime :D

Image
Notice that little hill there.

Image
Worlds first, a straight GCI first drop xD

Now, I wanna have it open :D

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

That looks like a really awesome pair of coasters! Those little hills surrounding the turnaround look great!

But actually, I would consider both Gwazi and El Toro to have straight drops, so it's not quite a first... ;)

^El Toro's drop isn't as straight as you might think:

I can't wait for this to open. It may be tame because of the low height, but the racing/dueling thing might be just enough coolness to overcome that.

Wow it looks great so far. This really makes me want to visit this park in the future. Also it will be interesting to see how their buildings turn out because they were pretty detailed in the concept art. But I know they are very good at theming!

This may have already been asked...How do you pronounce Joris en de Draak?
Some people are like slinkies. They aren't really good for much but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Can I park my donkey here?

Oh, I'll have a go at this, I'd say:
Joris en de Draak
Yòhris an duh Drààhk
or something..

J in joris as you'd say "yay" not j as in "jake"
all "r"s are rolling r's, if you know, like the gargling sound* you make when u rinse your teeth
*edit: maybe more like a purring cat sound actually.. :?r

"en" is pronounced pretty much like "and", but minus the d
"aa" in "Draak" as in "AARGH" you know, that pirate expression ^_^

does that make things more clear or just more confusing? :lmao:

The guy says Joris en de Draak around 0:29. Foreigners, make sure you practice enough!

El Toro is about the same height, and I have to say that it's not tame, I rank it similar as Troy...

Nice to see that they have completed much of the layout of the coaster, more or less only the bit around the station that is missing now.
