The pull through test has now made it to the corkscrews. Source: @Eftelwesley
The idea that the Python will survive the next 20-30 year makes me a bit sad because until then no worthy themed replacement will be built on that lap of ground. In my opinion the Python should be themed bc it doesn't fit in the park anymore now the Efteling has become a themepark who's in the top 5 of European themeparks.
Although, the decisions which has been made about the ticketsystem for the Python and Symbolica could meet the lack of theming in the queue. The station building of the Python could be themed though, just like some theming inside the helix.
It's 1 coaster without theming and it doesn't fit with the rest of the park.
I don't count the Bob coaster because I feel like he's gonna get removed soon. They don't put much effort in it to make it operational again. A worth replacement is probably the best thing the Efteling can do.
It's just how I feel about it.
So they've put the track at the bottom of the first drop back into place. The paint has been stripped off the ends of the tracks where the gap is. And temporary small bits of metal have been put under the rails to connect the track sections.
and this is how they're fixing the gap
I'm slightly confused. Maybe it's fine.
I watched this without sound, and their facial expressions don't inspire confidence
Kinda like "hey it should work, we think, maybe"
It'll be funny to see the first test run. I expect a giant "Kachunk" during that section.
Oh well, stranger things have happened on python.
Oh man, this whole SpaceX thing is getting out of hand!
The track was completed today. Testing will begin soon. From Efteling's Facebook.
Here you can see the difference in the thickness of the spine of new track (left) compared to old (right).
The completed and painted up connection between the old and new track.
Station and queueline still under construction.
First full test run today (video from efteling's facebook)
I’m glad to see they’ve actually smoothed a lot of the profile out, it should hopefully ride much better, especially the entrance into the corkscrew and the helix.
erm..... so this is a thing... (English subtitles available)
Awww! I think that is possibly the cutest thing ever! Surprised they didn't choose a tamer ride like Vogel Rok or something, though.
Haha. You might want to review the date from which this will be available.
It's a very well produced and convincing video. They seem to have fooled quite a number of people. Great job by Efteling's PR team.
Well done, Efteling! Although I'm pretty gullible anyway, so...
No wonder they fooled so many people. April fools are usually on April 1st, not March 29th (I haven't read the description when I watched the video, pretty sure I'm not the only one?).
And Python has now reopened.
