Oakwood has announced the addition of a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter coaster for 2006. The ride has not yet been named.
Read more and see video from Oakwood.
There could be another 1000+ feet of track put on the ride. However, I'm sure it'll still be awesome.
I think Chuck is right about this type of coaster being great indoors. It seems so anyway. It could be pretty compact, and fit nicely into a place like MoA. To bad Europe is so far away!
Strange thing is, The longest lines are for the most intense rides!
Highest point 120 ft
Top speed 95 kph
I thought Canadians were the only weirdos who used metric and imperial units of measurment simultaneously. :)
Oh yeah if you dont know the Name for the new ride is SPEED no limits
