"Coasters and more" have posted an extensive history in honour of Eurostars 10th anniversary.
Its also available in english and gives much insight in the process of building and the recent refurbishment of the ride.
This article should also solve the confusion about who actually built this coaster (and the answer is still not easy ti give)
Even if the techy-talk is not your thing, the pictures are absolutely spectacular. Most are taken from inside the structure and show how tight, yet monumental this ride actually is.

That is a really awesome article.
Were B&M involved in this coaster's production at all?...

I don't think B&M was involved but remember Giovanala (sp?) had has very similar track.

Yeah, look at Anaconda in Gold Reef. The tracks are the same. The only difference is that Eurostar is 4-across.

Giovanola and Intamin paired up for the technical aspecs. Intamin was doing the control and computer side, while Giovanola constructed the track, while another outside firm, Mannhardt, constructed the supports.

Thanks for the link - really nice article.
I pray that those modifications helped to turn Eurostar back into the ride it deserves to be.

It is still a very agressive ride, but if you 'ride it' it is an utterly amazing ride. There's also a review and photos at my site too.
