Silver Star keeps growing in Europa Park

Posted Tuesday, November 27, 2001 5:45 AM | Contributed by Kari

Silver Star's first drop is complete and construction continues on the first hill. Unlike Nitro, the first hill will have a curving rise and a straight drop.

Show me the photos!

looks very cool, but is this the new look for B&M hypers, or does Europa also not have enough room for a pre-drop?

You don't need one... it's just a matter of stopping the train in the right place and providing a large enough arc at the top for the train to smootly disengage the chain.

B&M is no longer putting the dip on top of their adds to the fear factor that way.  When you're in the front, you hang over the top, and you get to know just how high you are and you feel like you're gonna fall out.  It just adds to the ride completely.

I would do almost anything to ride this monster next year.

Incase anyone is interested, I've recreated the coaster with No Limits.  It's posted over at the Coaster Forum exchange.  (Under Forums, go to "Speed Zone", Then "No Limits", Then "X-Change")  I used photos of a model of it from First Drop Magazine to model it quite accurately.

Dont do anything for this one, wait for Heide Park in Germanys 412 ft Intamin Coaster to open, I would much rather ride the Intamin then this.

I like how the box girder was deepened to add strength rather than cluttering the ride up with a bunch of supports all over the place--coaster aesthetics are important, at least to me.
