Blue Fire sure looks like one helluva ride! I love the rocks, the tunnel, the color scheme... this coaster is gonna be a winner. Can't wait to go back to Deutschland and Europa Park!!

A few new simulation Videos on http://mack-rides.com/c223/default.html with some scenes of the dark ride part.

The classic!

Looks pretty cool from those photo's. It's nice to see the park are trying to theme this like they are (not that we didn't expect it lol).

Thanks for the links.

^ Good point, why should we go all over the world riding these things when we can just watch a video of it on Youtube. :p

It was irony...and I thought it would be clear...!
Besides...in reality there`s more theming than you see in those animations.
For example: You`re driving through a tunnel right before you reach the first Corcscrew...it`s not there in the Video...but there are more differences...
But maybe the Speed that we saw in the Testing-Video is the final one...but i still hope it will be faster though...

It was irony, ideed, but sometimes I really think that you take away something of the experience that you have when you are riding a Coaster for the first time WITHOUT seeing a Simulation or even an Onride Video before...

P.S. Thanks for this polite reaction, Mr. Gumbo. Rrrrrrrespect !

It's weird to me to see video of the train is only running with one set of seats attached, the rest are just the train chassis... I don't really see the point unless they can't break them in with anymore weight?
