    RCDB lists Parque Del Café (the same Colombian park that has Kráter, an Iron Shark Eurofighter, and Montaña Rusa, a Schwarzkopf Speed Racer) as having a Gerstlauer family coaster under construction named "Yippe":-

    Looks fun! Rather odd choice of name, though.

    Does it have a station launch? It looks like it goes upwards after the station. Also looks like it has a switch track so it can run 2 trains.

    I like it.

    Double post, but I find it funny how the coaster has a decent-sized drop into a trim, only to then bank up and right into the brakes. EDIT:- I've just realized that that trim section is going to be a splash down, as seen on the concept art photo.

    Here is the same layout picture, but embedded so you can see the full layout:-

    Is the splashdown going to be a SheiKra-style water skimming splashdown or a proper water coaster-style splashdown? I'm presuming the first one, but I just wanted to clarify.

    I don't think there will be any physical contact with the water, I think it will use fountains, kind of like Shambhala, mainly because of the trims in the splashdown.

    Thanks @ATI! It should be a cool effect! According to RCDB, this is due to open in February 2018, so they're gonna be pushed!

    Looks a bit like Shambhala's with less theming. Overall, this looks like a nice family coaster!

    Dang, those fountains shoot up really high! This looks really good!
    Not a huge fan of the color scheme though. Reminds me of some knock-off Golden Horse roller coaster color scheme.
