    A rather interesting version of Alpine Coaster is taking shape in Bavaria. The ride is one of Wiegand's new model line, called Sport Coaster. It doesn't have any rider operated brakes (much like Dawson Duel in that regard), which allows it to have these huge hills all through the layout. Here's a rough translation and a few photos from coasterfriends. The ride is set to open later this year.

    What the :emoji_zipper_mouth:. That's amazing - absolutely no debating if that's a coaster or not.

    Wow, that's cool!

    I will say, it did take me a little longer than I care to admit to realise that there are two alpine coasters in that picture. I thought the kid in the first picture was in for a wild ride!

    Are there legit airtime hills on an alpine coaster, or is there some kind of optical illusion here?

    Huh, I don't count alpine rides and I'm not really a fan of them but damn those hills will be terrifying. Will be interesting to see videos of this later in the year when it opens.

    This looks cool. Really enjoyed the zipworld one and the dawson duel ones are decent. There must be a quite a drop somewhere to get enough speed to crest those hills. Maybe next they can make launched ones???
