Yes, it and all the other rides were sold to an unnamed park :P


New photos!

The new area looks really cool, and I love that the coaster have the same colors as Piraten. Then the little ones can feel just as cool as their parents.

The area will get a milkshake/frozen yogurt bar :P

Looks like they had some leftover paint from Piraten. Regardless, the new area looks great!

Well, it may as well blend in, rather than clash, with one of the best rides anywhere. ;)

^Yet it would have fit in better with a farm-themed area. Oh, the irony! ;)

Danish coaster enthusiast Kian was given a tour of the area by the parks CEO. All credit for the photos and information to him!

This new area is also part of an ongoing process of upgrading the parks infrastructure to accomodate the increasing crowds and the future plans looks very good as well.

"Zamperla Barnyard. This will be called the "Milkshaker" and one of their ideas is to have scents go out around the ride area of for instance, vanilla or strawberry. It's not confirmed, but it's likely."

b.jpg
"Zamperla Demolition Derby. The theme is that a sheep has painted targets on the bulls behinds, so there'll be a laughing sheep beside the ride with a bucket of red paint."

c.jpg
"The tractor ride will go through several "scenes" and this is one of them, the final result should be a cow-house."

e.jpg
"This is a brand new generation of trains from Zierer that Djurs is the first to get. They're more comfortable and look much better in my opinion. The trains was one of my concerns with them choosing Zierer so this was nice to see.
As you can see, I'm quite excited about it! "

"Zamperla Magic Bikes. This will be themed to a grain mill and it is actually the biggest Zamperla has done, with 10 gondolas. "

o.jpg
"The foundation and steelwork for the Demolition Derby, which is apparently quite a big piece of work, which is why not a lot of parks has acquired one of these."

"Foundations for the two Zierer Family Drop Towers."

q.jpg
"Foundation for the "Milkshaker"."

"Some of the tractor layout. In the areas where guests can't go there'll be this kinda meadow with various themed elements. "

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

The Seats in those New Trains look a lot like the ones Zierer used in Lagoon's Jumping Dragon and OdySea, Lagoon's Flying Fish.
