This coaster has really surprised me. Every time I saw more pictures and more of the ride being built it has looked better and better, and now after seeing these animation videos of the complete layout and ride, it looks amazing. Everything about it, the elements, the pacing, the speed, it has a ton all in one ride. This will be a great ride for Europa Park.

This ride looks AMAZING. It is going to be a great addition to Europa Park and I want to return to Germany to ride this ASAP!

Cool

I'm glad they didn't put a maximum height limit on it.

There is a quiz too on the EP Fansite for 4 spots on the first ride dated on the 1.4. So it looks like the Park is pretty sure about the opening date.

This ride is of great interest to me and looks amazing. If this ride proves to be as good as it looks, we could possibly see more installations of this type from Mack in the future elsewhere around the world.
