This is great to hear. These Air Races are awesome rides and any new addition would be good for Walygator Parc.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

I'm pretty sure that Zamperla had this kind of success when they introduced the Power Surge back in the 90s.

Yeah, they could never get those Topple Towers to work properly. As rides they were OK. I liked Dollywood's the best; then again, I've only ridden two of them. ;)

Are there any Topple Towers left that run? Not surprised to see this one go as it's been SBNO for quite some time.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

This Topple Tower was working in 2013 for a little while after a big refurbishment by HUSS, but it was still down most of the time. The new owners of the park choose to remove it and replace it for a new ride in the nearby future instead of leaving it SBNO like the old crappy owners did.

What about the topple tower in Djurs Sommerland, in Denmark?
Is it still running? It was, back in 2009 when TPR was there.

That was the first Topple Tower I ever rode back in 2005. And in 3 visits to the park after that, I never saw it running. Replacing it with something more reliable is a good idea.

Yup, it runs on a daily basis. Short break downs happen though, and when a part needs to be replace it can be down for 1-3 weeks, but they do a great job of keeping it open.

The new Viking ship for Djurs are from HUSS, so I imagine they still have a pretty good working relationship.
