Hello,

I just saw on this page
http://www.coastersandmore.de/Rides/typhoon/gerstlauereng.shtml

That the travelling inverted coaster Eurostar is currently installed at the famed Gerstlauer factory in Münsterhausen, Germany.

Anybody know what is happening to it?
Is it getting the anti-roughness treatment that it deserved for some time now?

Gerstlauer is refurbishing it, which they needed to. I have a POV of that and it looks very painful.

Yeah, I had the honor of having the pain bestowed upon me in my very own POV real-life experience last fall, and my body which was physically attached to the coaster train at the time of the experience felt almost exactly like it had been through a car crash at the time the train re-entered the station - I wasn't bleeding or anything, but the train was really hitting those non-fitting track joints quite hard.

I'd love to see that video of yours!
Greetings, jo

The POV is on a VHS video by Horse Creek Productions....it is called Roller Coaster Adventures...I'm not too sure what volume it is on though.

Hmm. The article talks about Gerstlauer building trains for two indoor Paramount coasters. That's kinda interesting -- are there any indoor Paramount coasters other than Premier's FOF rides?

Also interesting that CCI ordered 102 wooden cars all at once. Roughly 15 trains worth.
