^ Why not? You just said tower ride so I was being open, although looking around other forums they all seem to be suggesting Mack/Intamin drop tower.

MYT, with a small E above. The E presumably relates to Europa-Park? But the MYT? Myth? Mythology? A tower ride is rumoured, but who really knows...

:)

They just completed the album to reveal the full name. It will be called "Mythos", and the subtitles seem to say "Ein Acht" (A Coaster)

I am not sure that is actually going to be the name for any development next year? The words read " A myth awoken" - nothing to do with a coaster I am afraid!

As for the Windseeker idea, it would just be hideously low capacity for Europa-Park. There's already one at Holiday Park up the road, and I don't think it would fit the park.

^ I know it is probably not likely to be a windseeker, but I have once been absolutely slated for making assumptions so I be cautious whenever something happens like this. The post I read said tower ride which means (in my book) either observation, swings, launch or freefall...

I think a tower ride is possible - it has been rumoured for several years. But a shot and/or drop tower rather than another form of viewing ride.

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

Hmmmm...I`m not shure if this belongs to the Rumour thread...but what I got from a VERY reliable Source is that it`s gonna be a Dark Ride with a Fairytale kind of Theme. Not a Tower. And it will be located close to Fairytale Forest...it will be a Part of the expansion of the Fairytale Area...located on the other side of the River...a huge bridge will be build over the river also...in the End the Size of the existing Fairytale Forest will be doubled !

EDIT : IN NEVER WAS SO WRONG BEFORE !!!

Wow, this is exciting! Way to go GCI! Are you sure the length is in feet though? Only 1,500 feet with a top speed of 62 MPH seems wierd to me. If it was 1050 METERS, It would approxomate to around 3,444 feet long. which makes more sense IMHO.
...If you are reading this, than you have officially reached the end of the post and are now reading my pointless sig :D.
