I've never been on Tranan but would love for a US park to get one as its a very unique attraction. NJ and CA would definitely be ruled out. ;)

Tranan was one weird coaster. Very unique but not something I would marathon on.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great Photos as always Hanno. Tranan was a very...unique ride. The open seats with those transitions definitely made for a fun ride.

I think the sad reality is we will never see another one. As Robb said on the trip the ride is a lot like a prototype ride that escaped the factory, it's still a great ride but it doesn't seem like its quite finished.

I love donkeys more than me.

^If S&S could work out a way to improve the capacity (8 riders per side in a 4x2 configuration perhaps?) it might be an easier sell. But as it stands the ride is really only suitable for a small park like Skara - didn't they say they only had something like 70 operating days each season?

^ Yes, I remember that. And was a bit surprised at the narrow time line for their "season."
But then, my park's "season" is May until Sept. Tranan is unique and could be plussed up
with a higher lift hill, maybe an indoor part (?), and a few more "spins." But it seems to be
like the new family coasters, like the one at Farup Sommerland. Not long in cycle time.
But fun enough for the whole family to enjoy.

Like I said. Short cycle, but a really zippy family coaster! Taken on 06-20-14 in Farup Sommerland.

Tranan was the only ride that I kinda in a way felt unsafe on, interesting, fun, but messed up in a strange enjoyable way

I want to say I would love to ride Tranan, but I feel like I would feel too exposed. Maybe someday... :lmao:
