Here i am again.

First thanks for all the lovely comments. Most questions have been answered already so there's more time for me to show some more pictures from my second day at the park around this ride.

I'll let the pictures do the talking (as usual)
Some might look a bit double but i'm still adding them as i like them or i feel that they are better then the one from yesterday.

Hope you like them.

I like the restraints on those trains. Nothing we'll ever see in California, of course, but very secure, yet unconfining.

That looks like a lot of fun, too.

WOW! Thanks a bunch for sharing these!

This coaster looks amazing!
It may just be me, but the trains look kinda tall. Almost like a semi riding on the track. The restraints are a bit odd as well. Not that any of this is a bad thing, though. Just different than what I'm used to seeing.

Thanks again for sharing these!

I love Mack coasters. They just seem to have great lines and so smooth. I would love to ride this ride. Thanks for the pics. Great job.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Stopped in to say, "WOW! Those are amazing pictures", but I see that others are way ahead of me. :-)

Seriously though. Thank you for providing a great look at a ride I'll probably never see in person.

This coaster looks really cool! Great pictures!

Wissen Sie, wo Waldshut liegt? Diese Stadt ist ungefähr zwei Stunden von Europapark. Dort machte ich einen Familienaufenthalt für eine Woche (vor ungefähr zwei Wochen). Wir sprachte über Europapark sehr viel, aber es war die ganze Woche leider noch geschlossen. Im März ist es zu kalt für Achterbähner in Deutschland.
(Ich hoffe, dass mein Deutsch gut genug ist. ;) )

I know more about donkeys than women!

Great job Hanno! :br

Thanks for the great pictures!

I love how aesthetically pleasing the trains are. Hopefully Mack will make a few more of these?

Either way, very nice Hanno!
