Hi Hanno,

really great pictures! Thanks for sharing. I think now is definitely the time to go to Europa Park. I live relatively near (about 8 hours driving from Vienna/Austria) but never made it up to now unfortunately ....

It all started with a donkey

The coaster is so beautiful(wipes away tear from eye) but seriously, wen this was originally announced I thought Mack is just copying Intamin's style, and will not do anywhere near as good of a job as Intamin. I am happy to say I have been proven wrong, and Blue Fire is now in my top ten rides I want to ride before I die.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I think the faces say a lot about the quality of this ride...and finally the germans learned to put the arms up during rollercoater rides.
Thats a good thing...and some of the pics are really ecellent...!
P.S. A closer description of the ride experience would have been great in my opinion...

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I love how this coaster looks!!! :lmao:

Might regret saying this but...It kind of looks like a mix between an Intamin :airtime: and a Maurer Söhne :airtimer: to me. Not that I'm complaining!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

The restraints look like adult sized highchairs, lol. The ride looks insane and I hope to ride it in the near future. It looks like the newest version of Millennium Force at CP but with a launch.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Great photos as usual Hanno. Gives me more reason (Not that I needed more reason) to go back to Europa Park.

Heres hoping this is the type of coaster Alton Towers are getting for next year, but their version will obviously be without inversions.

First, really can`t say more than the others! Fantastic pics from a really nice coaster. Just counting the time to ride it by myself.

Dein Deutsch ist nicht schlecht! Nur ein paar kleine Grammatik Fehler aber alles verständlich. Ansonsten schade das es zu früh für einen Besuch war, vielleicht trifft man sich ja bei der nächsten Gelegenheit mal im Park.

And there is a rumor that one coaster of the same type is ordered from MACk. But its a rumor and no one knows more about the layout or which park it ordered.
