This question is directed to all the international coaster riders out there. I have been looking at pics of Robin Hood at Six Flags Holland and was just wondering what kind of ride it is. I'm curious to know what the ride is like especially since it was designed by Vekoma(kinda odd). The design of the trains on this ride are phenomenal. The layout of the ride is interesting too. It looks full of gradually descending hills and bankeds turns. Is it a high speed ride? It looks like one.

From what I have heard from those who have rode it and from what I have saw as POV's both Werewolf at SF Belgium and Robin Hood at SF Holland are great rides. Great fast pacing, full of air, and downrigth good rides. If only Vekoma's non wooden coasters were as good.

You can get the POV for both coasters I mentioned along with all kinds of other european coasters (Nemesis, Air, Goliath, Expedition Ge Force, Collosus, Collusus, Silver Star etc) from Robb Alvey for 10 bucks. Just go to Theme Park Review and look for European Coaster Odysey Ride Footage.

There's an on-ride video at this website http://www.coastervideos.de/ if you want to get a good feel of the ride.

Robin Hood does not deliver as much airtime as Werewolf. There's one or two spots, but otherwise it's a bit of a letdown. The cars on the other hand are extremly comfortable and feel nostalgic. However, the lap bars on both versions will slam down on you while riding unless you hold it up in some way.

They took the downloads off again due to high bandwidth use... that what it says under the red text. Sorry.

You can find a Robin Hood review on my website.

There's not much to say concerning Robin Hood except that it's one of the best wooden coasters in Europe, and probably one of the best Vekomas ever built. After its revamp mid 2002 the ride is faster than ever, and provides extreme airtime and very high speeds.

CoasterVideos has bandwidth problems again, which is explained in the *German* text below. Just be patient, it won't be long before their movies will be back online again.
