This looks like loads of fun! Nice to see them add two more CREDS to the park.
The park's press conference highlight video shows more of the construction progress so far:
This looks really fab? I love the branding.
How cute! I think it'll fit really well in the park.
The use of wood is also quite novel.
The tracks are now complete. They are now installing the electronics and finishing off the bridge. The attraction is set to open in May.

Opening tomorrow. Shame it's a bit slow, but I'm sure the racing element will make up for it! Also looking at it now it looks so weird riding on that wooden platform for the whole ride rather than going down a mountain.
Im hoping it just looks super slow because there no weight in the carts. It really crawls down in that video!
I'll hopefully be riding before the Plopsterix Live and I'm secretly really excited for this cute little park.
I read on RCDB that it used automatic braking.
That makes sense Also maybe the height difference between the start and finish is a lot less compared with other alpine coasters.
I mean, the structure looks cool, but the ride itself does look pretty slow.
Looks about as thrilling as the Squirrel Ride / Tree Top Adventure thing at Alton!
Isn't the video showing it with no rider though? It'll be faster with someone in it.
But, yeah, Meh. I'm going in the summer and had already planned it before this thing popped up, so I'm seeing it as a bonus.
First one was, second one is two peeps "dueliing" tho.
It's a controlled speed with brake fins the entire ride - it looks really really awful.
Themenparkfreaks.eu has reported that the park has managed to double the capacity of Dawson Duel. Together with the manufacturer (Wiegand) some adjustments were made so that more cars can be on the track at the same time (the park also bought 6 more cars). The electronic braking system has been optimised, as well as the boarding process. The changes have been approved by the TÜV.
Yeah, but has it stopped being s**t though?
Honestly it looks pretty fun
