Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Plopsaland de Panne, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Original Post:




The Flemish park Plopsaland at De Panne (Belgian coast), will
celebrate its 10th birthday in 2009. For this, they will
build a new roller coaster, namely a launched Gerstlauer
ride.

It will be the first inverting coaster for the park
which was at first mainly aimed at toddlers and small children.

The coaster is comparable with the new Lynet at Fårup
Sommerland. The layout is more extensive though.

Wow I'm really liking the look of this coaster! The first inversion looks like a dive loop on acid :lolr: Can't wait to see this baby for real.

^ I agree. I really like the look of it though. I really like the look of the trains too.

This thing looks sweet. The Gerstlauer launch coasters seem to be quite an up and coming thing at the moment which I think is good.
This is my signature, quite amazing isn't it...

Wow, that has to be one of the most messed up but at the same time awesome coaster stations I've ever seen. Yeah, this ride looks pretty unique. I like the look of the trains, their basically the same thing as X-car trains.

Also, this was obviously built in No limits. Could this possibly be No Limits 2 anyone?

Am I the only one who have problems with the POV; it doesn't appear :?r

But from what I can see in the sketches it looks pretty good; a bit weird and out of control layout, but that definitely doesn't make it worse.
And the station is just awesome!!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

It doesn't appear for me too. I assumed it was from firewall at my work. Will have to check when I get home. I totally love the station!
