In their latest newsletter, Hansa Park has put the Fluch von Kärnan drop tower for 2015 rumors to rest by announcing that Kärnan will be a hyper coaster. No real facts were given, not even the manufacturer, other than the groundbreaking will take place this year and construction is expected to take 1 1/2 years. With the announcement the park confirmed that the Fluch von has been dropped from the name, but they want speculation to run ramped so don't expect any further details in the near future or at least until the groundbreaking ceremony. Originally rumors were that Fluch von Kärnan was going to be a replacement for the Montezuma drop tower that was closed in 2012, but now it appears that a replacement will not be coming before 2016.
