I need to got to Europa, looks brilliant and what-not, and I'm sure this ride is a nice addition to the park...

This will be a Mack prototype. In any case, there's plenty of Intamin Accelerator's in Europe as it is.

Robb got a chance to talk with the park president about the new addition and he said it sounds pretty cool. Can't talk too much more about it until more details are released, but I have mixed feelings. I know that Europa Park needs this ride to stay competitive with the 'thrill market' but there's something about all of Europa Parks nice non-inverting coasters that is really inviting!

We had a chat with the assisting general manager (could be the same guy you saw, Michael Von Byern?) in May when I went over with Towers Times, and he said he couldn't give much away at the stage, but that it would be a coaster aimed more at the thrill market.

I do feel that EP is nice the way it's so non inverted, but I can't help but feel this ride is vital given the thrill rides arriving at Phantasialand and at Disneyland Paris.
