Silverstar track completes circuit with final section

Posted Tuesday, February 12, 2002 5:35 AM | Contributed by olov

The last section of track for Europa Park's new B&M, Silverstar, has been installed. The trains are also on-site. Station work, grout work and of course testing remain.

Show me the photos!

MAN!  I wish I was in Germany.  :-(  Now the US has something to be envious of. Hehe.

You're kidding right?  We have at least 6 coasters that will top this.

Sweet.  That coaster looks like it's gonna be really good.  I hope they have videos of it and stuff at that site.

Whether or not we have better coasters, I'm still envious of that monster.  How can you not be?  It's a B&M hyper!

As if we weren't already envious of Nemesis, Oblivion, Colossus, Colossos, Expedition Ge-Force, White Cyclone and the dozens of other great coasters outside the U.S.

On a positive note, I'm glad people on this site know the difference between "jealous" and "envious"!  :)

It sure does looks like it, but ther is a gap between the 2 seats so maybe they just havent finished putting them in, if it is 2 across thats VERY VERY un B&M-like , but so is the lift and supports so ya never know, on another note, the trains look very floorless *** This post was edited by DrachenFire04 on 2/12/2002. ***

Yep, that is two across seating. Probably why there are only steps on one side of the lift without any sort of powered evacuation stairs like S:UF and Raptor have. -Allan

ApolloAndy's avatar Unless the train length is drastically increased, capacity would be awful for a 2 seater. Nope, it's gotta be a 4. This is B&M folks.

If you don't have it, get the Screamin' Serpent.

I'm not sure about the Andy. Goliath is a two-seater with terriffic capacity.

Have you ever considered that maybe it's not the park that's the problem, but YOU?
