Name of new Dueling Family Boomerang announced: Tweestryd

27747681_743723522464935_5963861208668741828_o.jpg

Tweestryd (EN: conflict, duel, to be in two minds), that is the name of Wildlands Adventure Zoo's new attraction. The Family Boomerang is located in the Serenga themed area of the park, where the care for nature is central.

Tweestryd is a coal mine closed forty years ago. The area was then returned back to nature. In the meantime nature has recovered on this spot. From the spring of 2018, guests will be able to visit the old mine and race against each other. A charity is linked to both racers; the winning team will collect money for this charity. In short: a mine with a mission!

That is one spiffy-looking new coaster.

On March 4th and 11th (from 11:00 till 16:00 local time) Wildlands will hold construction-site tours for pass-holders.
I've signed up for March 4th and I will take pictures if allowed. Pass-holders can sign up via: https://www.wildlands.nl/kijkje .

Last weekend I took some pictures of the construction-site. I will upload them later today or tomorrow.

As promised the construction pictures of last week.
The trains were not well visible, the view was quite obstructed.

Tweestryd was testing today.
Took some quick shots, but I didn't have much time and it was the end of the afternoon, so I didn't enter the park.

That looks like a very nice park/zoo, and a Vekoma Family Boomerang (well, two of them) seems like a great fit for this type of park! :)

Like I've said in an earlier post, I've visited the construction-site.
My first impression: very nicely themed.
I really like the entrance to the queue, where you walk through a mine shaft.
I also really like the other theme-objects in the area and queue, like the little train in the queue.
Also really nice: The exit of the coasters is in the middle of the station, between both tracks. You'll walk between and very close to both tracks and end up at the food stal/possible photo booth or souvenir shop.

What they told about the coaster(s):
Height: 20m
Length: 218m
Top speed: 60 km/h
Total ride time: 01:05 (mm:ss)
Minimum and maximum rider size: 95 cm - 205 cm
Trains use soft wheels to reduce noise.
The position of the lift and both spikes on one side and the low to the ground turns on the other side have been deliberately chosen to keep most of the noise away from the animals.
Both tracks will be connected to a (to be announced at ride opening) charity. Depending on the winner of the race, Wildlands will donate an X amount of money to the corresponding charity.
According to the park, the operators don't have any influence on the outcome of the race. Both trains will be released from the top simultaneously, gravity and friction will determine the outcome of the race.
Tweestryd will open at the end of march.

Here are the pictures, a video of the tests will follow later this week.

That's...pretty darn cool. I love when parks take racing (and winning!) seriously, like Hersheypark with Lightning Racer, and this park is taking an extra step to make it "mean something" in a small way. Awesome!
