Amazing what an american/english influence there is at that park. I mean, the park is called Holiday Park, I would think that they would have a German way of saying it. Probably half the people there don't even know what Holiday Park means. Same for Expedition Ge Force. Anyway, looks like an unbelievable coaster!
The best looking coaster in the World opens and I can't get there to ride it. Let's hope a coaster that uses the best of all 4 big Intamin's comes close to home very soon. PKI better be looking at this unless a decision was already made. I know I'll be showing them these pics if the announcement doesn't come through to my hopes. Even though the trains look slightly larger, the Intamin hyper/giga trains have to be my favorite.
1] WOW! 2] Interesting how they have a small guide track extending down vertically from the top of the lift for the pulley cart to compensate for the twist in the first drop. 3] WOW! 4] Anyone else know why that one section of track over the last bunnyhop remains unpainted? 5] That first drop must create a wicked air/lateral combo in the rear half of the train! 6] WOW!
I like the unpainted portion. It looks like it is actually colored more like the support structure to blend in a little! I think the did it to make it look nice over the entrance. Gotta love the coaster doing a bunny hop over the entrance.
Maybe it's just me or does it seem like they rushed the opening of it. The station doesn't even have a roof yet! Also, why does Millennium Force remain to be the only Intamin hyper/giga with headrests.
BTW you gotta just love those EGF trains.

"They" better put a roof on the station because if it rains out, it's going to screw up the controls/wires. In the off-season, if it snows, that is worst. So are they going to put a roof on the station??
Why are there no headrests on teh trains? What's up with that? ------------- Congratulations Ray Bourque!!

News Flash: Millennium Force is the only Intamin hyper coaster I believe with headrest. Why? It's not because you'd ever get whiplash, but because Cedar Fair is a little too cautious about such things. As for the coaster it looks awesome (not sure about the train colors though) and I wish I could travel with my parents in a suitcase to Austria so I could travel to Germany and also ride Collosus.
