    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    I actually pretty much have for this exact reason. Swapping out Europa trip for an Energylandia revisit I reckon. Just hope they don't introduce a single rider for Hyperion soon where I'm forced into the outside seats (although they're nowhere near as rough as that sounds tbf :) )

    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    Less than a week to go, what are we all thinking then? I'm feeling super optimistic about his ride and saying this is going to be a 10/10......happy to eat my words if wrong :)

    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    My gosh this really does look utterly magnificent. I was looking forward to it anyway but it looks like it's going to be far, far beyond my expectations personally......

    Last Cred Review

    Kondaa-really really happy to finally get this credit. I was really somewhat looking forward to this one as a big Intamin fan, and it didn't disappoint. Great theming, great pacing and airtime galore. I was fortunate enough to score a front row ride once too which was absolutely magnificent...

    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    I emailed them today to ask if it would be open in time for their opening season and this was their response: Mon, 11 Dec at 12:26 Hello, Thank you very much for your email and your interest in Europa-Park. The opening of our new multi launch coaster Voltron Nevera powered by Rimac is...

    Don't know how reliable this is..... I also heard dates of 'summer 2024' which is I'd also appreciate an answer to this if anyone knows.....

    With Apocalypse closed, what is the UK's new scariest ride?

    Interesting. I live in Brighton since 2017 but always avoid this one for this exact reason hehe. Never fancied it tbh. On a similar topic, the Brighton booster would have been a reasonable shout but sadly it's been gone for nearly a year now. Shame such a great ride :(. Oblivion would be the...

    Most underrated uk coaster

    I remember way back 2011, long before I was properly into/ aware of rides, me and my gf at the time decided to skive a day of uni to go the Thorpe Park on a totally empty Friday in like February or something. We had an absolute blast particularly with Stealth and Tidal Wave, but we both agreed...

    What is your top 10 to do list?

    Going to keep this as realistic as stuff like Steel Vengeance, Hakugei and Skyrush would be ludicrously high up but in terms of stuff I'm actually likely to do anytime in the next few years, with a bit of commentary thrown in for good measure, I'll go with: 1. Kondaa-this is EXACTLY my kind of...

    Your worst spite

    Well as a massive Intamin fanboy I flew all the way out to Helsinki and made a whole holiday of it, largely to ride Taiga at Linnanmaki. I only got one ride on the darn thing as it was down for the entire day that I went there from about 30 minutes after opening..... that's gotta be a pretty...

    Theme Parks with the best catering

    Another vote for Europa here. Is there anything that park can't do right? Also I don't know why but for some reason I always really look forward to lunch at Energylandia, even though I can't really make a case for it being anywhere near the's a bit tacky at times but I just love...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Whilst Taron is undoubtedly king of West Germany for me, I think I actually prefer Europa park's coaster lineup as a whole when compared with THAT must be a pretty uncommon opinion.....

    "Which European country is best for roller coasters?": A statistical analysis of European countries' coaster selections

    Not surprised by Germany at all. Any country would rightly point to just one of Phantasialand or Europa park and stake a claim for top 5 based on them alone. To have both in the same country is insane and that's BEFORE taking into account Hansa/Heide/Movie park etc, some of which contain...

    What makes a coaster good?

    Great question actually. I think when we're young we assume the higher the better, but actually there are so many factors e.g theming etc.... Certainly not number one for me but I do think one thing that features higher than me for most is actually the restraints. Nothing like getting into one...

    Best Coaster in Europe

    Oh and for those wondering can confirm first hand single rider is back which is VERY handy for those who wish to marathon.
