    IMO this looks better than both of them. This one has a proper layout after the launch at least.

    It looks really fun! Glad to see another solid addition to the Dutch coaster line-up. Just a bit gutted that I need to go back to this dump.

    A POV has been uploaded:



    Looks like a great addition! Nice inversions, pretty good layout, and looks like it can offer a bit of airtime. Also looks like it has the longest Infinity train yet at 5 cars.

    I got a bit of a Maverick vibe from that animation (not the layout, the theme).

    Just realized that. My school's internet blocks Facebook, which is why I didn't see it.

    I literally just saw a very blurry image of it on a screen, all I saw was a top hat and some inversions :lol:

    I think this topic should be moved to be with the big boys in Roller Coaster Construction

    I like the front, but the side part is giving me Stage Coach vibes.

    Agreed, consider it done.

    It looks very exposed, which is great news! I quite like it all round to be honest, looking forward to seeing them for real. Those wheels look like they might be a bit flimsy, so it'll be interesting how they turn out.

    Ooh, I like it! I love the new Gerst. Trains, they're so exposed and comfy(although the restraint can thigh crush at some times).

    What do you mean with "Thigh crush"? I didn't even realize the restraint is there while riding Karacho.

    Might've just been the ride ops stapling me, but the restraints were *just* a bit tight when I rode Monster. If it wasn't for that slight tightness, it'd probably be my favorite train in the industry. I probably misused the word 'Thigh Crush'.

    On Junker they got pretty tight as well. They're definitely a notch or three below Mack trains, but they're still fine. Karacho isn't forceful enough I think, to really tighten. That, or the ride operators are more chill there.

    Karacho does have hangtime (a rather slow heartline roll) so it's probably just the operators that are more chill and don't want to kill you. They make sure it is tight, but don't push it in further than necessary.

    We only had visual checks once on Karacho so I think it's definitely down to the ops.
