More track has been hung on this amazing coaster as it grows closer to completion. All that remians now is the section from the second hill through the horseshoe turnaround. Check out the latest photos on the official website.

Visit the official Europa Park site, and be sure to check out the previous two updates if you haven't seen them!

Jeff's avatar Clean lines everywhere... gotta love the look of that ride! It takes the aesthetics of Nitro and goes one step further without the stupid colors.

That is one BIG coaster. Is it bigger (area wise) then Nirto? It sure seems like it.

Do you think this coaster is worth a 6 hour car ride?

It looks incredible..

Those supports are so cool.  I especially like the ones on the "Zweiter Camelback."  This sucker's got some pretty huge hills, too.  Germany, I envy you!

Reminds me alittle bit of timbers.  Huge ride, in the middle of nowhere.  I can't wait to ride this thing in 03 when I go on my european tour!

I'm trying to figure out what the deal is with the supports on that camelback.  It almost looks as though something is going to be constructed above the peak of the hill.

janfrederick's avatar I love that prehistoric look. Reminds me of the time the Flintstones went to the amusement park and rode the coaster down the dinosaur's back.

It's like Nitro... but so... so... much better!
I love the colors and the ride looks totally awesome, I only hope the helixes and hills don't get trimmed. ALL brakes on Raging bull are next to useless and take away from what is otherwise a truly kick*** ride. I wish i lived in germany.

Oh yeah... the end brakes are sorta necessary on RB, they... stop you. A good thing :)

I agree, perhaps this layout's is better than Nitro's, but Nitro defiantely has a far superior setting.....

I mean, dark woods by the lake, or parking lot?  Take your pic.

nasai's avatar Well, I do love the way that Nitro runs through the woods, but I do love the open feeling that this coaster seems to give.  I agree with Jeff on the color scheme.  I don't have anything against Nitro's colors, but I like the sleekness and the cold feeling of the silvery steel.

Yes, those are some funky supports. I've always liked how B&M manage to use minimal supportage, and make it look good.

Hey this will be the first B&M that one support will support two pieces of track.

I have a feeling those funny looking supports will be supporting track on the out run. The hill thats already there appears to be on the return run as it looks like it goes up into the trim brake area after the hill that is already built. I also noticed what look like trim brakes in the pictures as was pointed out by someone else. B&M has been puttin them all all of thier rides lately but not using them. In a couple of instances I know of, they are there strictly as a precautionary measure should the computer detect the train running a little too fast. They are off all other times.

I didn't think of that camelback being on the return run and having a larger one built next to it...

Hey Alex, I am glad that I am not the only one to notice that. Something very interesting I'd say, at least to you and me.
