The park opens in the beggining of March. April is actually one of the best times to visit.

Thanks James, are they hoping to have the ride ready for the start of the season? Can't wait - Spent 2 weeks in Orlando last month, and am getting withdrawal syndrome!

This is starting to look really good,

As I'm not sure the exact opening date. One thing Europa Park does incredibly well is to open the rides on time.

I would bet a Lobster Dinner that Europa Park's new coaster will be open at the beginning of the next season, if not, very shortly after.

Here is many new (And some old) facts:

Capacity: 1720 riders per hour
Length: 3464' 7"
Height: 124' 8"
Inversions: 4
Speed: 62.1 mph
Duration: 2:30
G-Force: 3.8
Max Acceleration: 0 − 62.1 mph in 2.5 seconds
Elements: 105' tall Loop
Trains: 20 passengers per train.

20 passengers per car. That is the same as the many other Intanim launching coasters with the exception of Dragster and Kingda Ka. (Which only seat 18)

So hopefully, the loading will be as fast, if not faster then Desert Race's. :P

To go along with that heres the latest construction update

Some of the rockwork is going up along with the corkscrew hop through the loop, helix and half the final barrel roll.

Looks amazing so far.

Just got back from the park last week. I can say, this thing is WAY bigger then it looks on the pictures. From the queue of Atlantica Supersplash, the coaster literality is above all the tree tops and looks huge.

^^
Love that art work. Thanks for showing that! :P

This coaster looks very good. I saw the construction in september...the overbanked turn is very strange in reality!
But, I can't wait to return to Europa Park in 2009! :)

We need another update...
Currently installing the 2nd corkscrew.
EP-Fans.info
I'll give them a week or two and they'll have the track complete.
Now I wonder what the theming will be like other than the rocks seen in the renderings but then perhaps Iceland isn't much more than rocks :P
