    1.3 million visitors in 2016 and probably even more in 2018. I'd say that's fairly busy for a park of that size.
    You also have to bear in mind that this is bound to draw a lot of attention in it's opening year, being the only coaster in the park.
    - So (a theoretic capacity of) 1,100 riders per hour seems very reasonable.

    Why do you doubt it gets busy? In terms of wildlife parks, it's really high up in terms of visitor numbers.

    During the summer holiday's and weekends and other weekends or holidays with nice weather it can get really crowded (easily over 10.000 visitors in a single day), however outside of that it's a lot more quiet.
    When I visited nearly 2 weeks ago (chilly and wet "Dutch" winter weather) it was really quiet in the park.

    I'll probably make another visit again this weekend. Hopefully I can take some pictures of the trains.

    So the trains are 10 cars long, like a regular family boomerang?

    On March 4th and 11th (from 11:00 till 16:00 local time) Wildlands will hold construction-site tours for pass-holders.
    I've signed up for March 4th and I will take pictures if allowed. Pass-holders can sign up via: https://www.wildlands.nl/kijkje .

    Last weekend I took some pictures of the construction-site. I will upload them later today or tomorrow.

    As promised the construction pictures of last week.
    The trains were not well visible, the view was quite obstructed.

    This is my favourite picture, merely for the first two words of that sign.

    This is looking better and better all the time. And such good PR from the park to help promote it with the construction tours for pass holders.
