number of trains is listed as 5, what does that mean we will see when its running at full capacity?
one in station loading, one out station waiting for launch, one waiting to enter station and therfore two out running round ?

^ your forgot the darkride part with a stop in it. They trains weren`t launched directly out of the station. And they had a unload and a loading section in the station, so:

1 train in the unloading section
1 train in the loading section
1 train in the darkride part
1 train in the first block (launch-till block brakes)
1 train in the second block

i don`t think the trains have to wait somewhere on the track... if you know Europa Park, they had the best operators i`ve ever seen! they even put through small rides a huge amount of people, friendly and fast. By 4 million people a year, they had to do so :roll:

^
I agree. Europa Park is the best at operations. Just imagine how fast this line will go.
But I wonder if it will break down a lot?

Mack isn`t famous for breakdowns, not at all, I think.
And besides, I`m already shure, the first riders will tell, that the ride is unbelievably smooth...I hope so, and I belive so.
Maybe the launch will be a littlebit too slow for some of us, but I think technically it`ll be great...!

^thats true. I´ve been to Europa PArk over 30 times and i never find one ride closed. Sometimes 1-2 just opens 1 or 2 hours later but mostly all of them ride the whole day.

And the smoothness. THink so too. The first viewers said that you nearly hear nothing from ride, which bode well in my opinion. And when have riden Pegasus which is produced the same way from Mack, you`ll know waht smooth is ;)

and about the Speed: if you take the lenght of the ride (1000m - ca. 100m of the darkride) and the length of the ride duration in the video (ca45 sec)
you can calculate: 900 m / 45 s = 20 m/s = 72 km/h = 44,7387258 mph average speed. SO i do`nt think its really slow...

Yes, indeed, the Coaster IS not slow, but hopefully it will not FEEL slow, where it shouldn`t.
But I`m shure we`ll have a VERY good time in Island...
Ah, by the way, Kooky, will you join us at the 4. of April ???

i hope i could but i`m going to move in an other flat these days so i don`t think to have the time! And it will be very hard to go there because of "Nato-Gipfel", on the highways they stop nearly every car eventhough on the normal streets.

So I`m looking forward to visit the park some days/weeks after the opening. Maybe after the easter holidays when the crowds has gone. I´ll post it here so maybe we can meet us another time... Or maybe i can`t wait and come to the opening instead. Just need some days to making a decision.

But I still hope to win the tickets for the first riders on April the 1st :airtime:

:lmao:

Superb funny trailer. I will be at Europa Park at Saturday (Opening Day of the new season) and will ride this at first! I'm so excited. I'll take my camcorder with me, and I will make an offride video for sure, maybe even onride. We'll see.

The first POV is up too.
It seems to have a good speed with a lot of cool elements.
