    Movie Park Germany | Movie Park Studio Tour | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I guess my main takeway is damn is it moving hella fast through those darkride sections. Not sure how much of your surroundings you’re going to be able to take in considering how it flies past some of those scenes.
