    Based off the plans someone has tried to recreate the layout in NL2.

    Bobbejaanland was my homepark a few years ago but this is absolutely one of the worst coaster types that a park can build. A half pipe is such an ugly element (certainly without immersive theming) in a coaster and also just the fact that it's not a closed track.... :( And it's too close to Sledge Hammer, it ruins the view on Sledge Hammer in my opinion.

    I'm not that happy with this one but I'll give it a try. I'm normally not someone who's giving negative comment before something has been built, but I find this kind of coasters 2 times nothing tbh.

    There's something about this coaster that I hate but I can't figure out what it is.

    I would love this if it wasn't for that dumb, pointless abortion of a half loop at the end. Why did they think that would look good? Oh and the first spike should be vertical, that looks dumb too. Ugh.

    I totally agree. These type of coasters aren't really coasters for me. These layouts are ugly. That's why I'm not that happy with this project.

    I also don't count coasters as coasters

    Well these are obviously coasters. But I don't really like to see them as triple launch coaster - even though they are launched three times. It sounds better than a double launch but it's absolutely not. And there'd be no problem to build a quintuple launch. It just feels wrong.

    I'm with you. It looks like a unique, compact, thrilling attraction.

    Yeah, at least it’s unique and not a SRII right?

    I mean we'll only know when it opens, or even if we ride it ourselves.
    But to me it seems like a potentially fun ride, and the capacity doesn't seem crap.
    So I'm all for it...

    I think they’re completely screwing the rides potential throughout with the second spike? Why not just drop down into brakes and then into the station?

    The layout isn't the most appealing to me (at least based on this fan-made animation) since it mostly relies on inversions and I wish there were more airtime or really snappy moments, but there still is a couple of potentially exciting elements. Gerstlauer has a mixed track record when it comes to building photogenic rides so I understand the complaints about the visual qualities of the ride.

    Not too sure about the half loop/spike thing, the roll inversion spike presumably going to Walibi Rhône Alpes looks more fun to me.
