    Raise your hand if you came back to look at this park after looking at Walibi Rhône-Alpes on coast2coaster.

    According to RCDB, there are going to be 3 roller coasters in total. They have also revealed what sorts of models they are. They are:
    • Mine d'or des Daltons (Zierer Force Two)
    • Nid du Marsupilami (Zierer Tower Coaster a la Impulse)
    • Racing Gallery (Zierer ESC 535)
    Definitely seems like quite a family-oriented park from the coaster lineup. Interestingly, the Zierer Tower Coaster is actually listed as a "Thrill" coaster instead of an "Extreme" coaster on RCDB. I think that this looks like a decent little park with an OK lineup, especially if you are a Zierer fan. I can't really judge how any of these will ride because the only Zierer I've ridden is Treetops at Oakwood, but I reckon these coasters look good,

    Presumably some track assembled at the Zierer factory.

    I'm heading down that way over the summer so if this is all finished I plan to pop in. RCDB has a June opening...

    Maybe it's been delayed until after the park opens or something?

    While the impulse clone isnt up yet the park has announced 2 new coasters already for 2019

    The most interesting is the 30m model of the RES Roller Ball https://rcdb.com/16807.htm
    So a bigger one of these weird things

    Second is a janky looking Preston & Barbieri Back Spin coaster https://rcdb.com/16791.htm

    Is the Impulse clone still coming?

    Actually the park never anounced the rollerball and no one seems to know where rcdb got that info.

    EDIT 1PM : the Rollerball has now been announced on the park website.

    Almost certainly from spoken confirmations at IAAPA. Duane was there all last week and always seems to gather a lot of info.

    Here is a concept image of the Roller Ball courtesy of Wonder World:-

    The only differences from the 19m version seem to be the addition of an extra section above, and the final section at the bottom:-
