    Wow, those lighting photos make it look so good! The FB photos reaffirm my trust in Plopsa after that vile sound guard.

    This looks great with the lighting and theme is coming on nicely. At least the delay means it look like the area is gonna be pretty much complete when it finally opens up.

    I really don't think that sound wall is gonna make much difference to the quality of the ride. It'll still be a fun wooden coaster for the family, and no extra garden fencing is going to have an effect on that.

    Just found this quote (from a link tweeted by IAAPA);
    :(

    Mind you, it comes from a "Travel Trends 2017" article that also says;
    So perhaps a (large) pinch of salt should be taken!

    Bless them ; perhaps they were getting confused with this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=be.bazookas.mobile.plopsaar&hl=en

    ^The only correct claim in that sentence appears to be that they got the approximate location of Djurs Sommerland correct. It is, indeed, in Nimtofte. But Nimtofte is not in "Demark", and the park is much bigger than 98 feet (or its target demographic is bigger than 49 people, depending on how you interpret the sentence). The quoted speed would make Djurs Sommerland the fastest park in the world.

    It seems like they just a part of the sentence.

    Station and queue theming looks a little bland, but the ride itself looks ridiculously fun in my opinion!

    I'm so glad that they spited the horrible 90 degree banking on the turnaround that White Lightning has. It's awful.

    I'm on the train coming back from plopsa. I loved Heidi. It is really punchy, really fun.the pacing is relentless and the airtimes are great and numerous.
    The top of the double up and down, however, could have been a bit lower, and does not deliver any real airtime. Fortunately, all the other bumps do get you off your seat.
