    Not the most up to date pictures but these show the progress being made on the tunnel and footers.
    Digging work on the tunnel begins.

    Super excited to see this materialise now. I love Lost Gravity and can't wait to see another one of these in the world.

    I'm surprised to see work already taking place on this, is it just because it's an awkward location?

    Press article about Dynamite which reveals the ride's theming will include an audio animatronic which will explain the ride's backstory.

    Plohn reopened yesterday for the 2018 season so courtesy of Plohn Fan Page on Instagram we have some new pictures of the construction site.

    The coaster is being heavily advertised in the park.

    A large number of footers have already been completed, and work is continuing on the rest.

    We have to wait until September/October. The park will finish the footers and ground work until the summer season (opening the whole week) and starting with the second part of the construction after the last part of Germany finishes the holidays/vacations.

    So the park encountered a rather large rock which happened to be in the way of footers that needed to be built. So, to continue the construction of Dynamite, the park ended up using some real dynamite!

    Yikes 2 trains is definitely not good for capacity

    A combination of 2 trains with 8 people? Ok, there are 3 possibilities here.
    • The article isn't correct and it actually ahs more than 2 trains.
    • The article is correct about 2 trains, but there are at least 12 passengers per train.
    • The park is investing in a coaster with a stupidly low throughput, lower than a Sky Rocket II.
    A combination of points 1 and 2 would be nice (at least 3 trains of at least 12 passengers), but I think the most likely option is point 3 (what the article says) because the logo only showcases a 2-row train, and the park doesn't get the attendance for a high capacity ride (not yet anyway), e.g. their wooden coaster El Toro only has the one train. However I think this coaster will be even lower throughput than that, unless this ride is similar to Oblivion in track length.​

    You realise this is a small family park yeah? Capacity and throughput aren’t all that important here.

    It's not dissimilar to most Rage clone Eurofighters out there, so....

    They are smaller than this though, and have 3 cars.

    Not all run three cars, though, ATI. This is a really small park with not that huge of an attendance - if the park has made the judgement call to only have that TRPH, then it's right for them and that's that?

    I didn't think that Falcon at Duinrell does? Plus, Speed at Oakwood never runs three? Also, Speed has two trains... and it barely runs both.
