    I'm sure it was mentioned in the first press release that it was going to be located inside Nessie's structure, though I may be wrong?

    I think you might be right @Lofty, but I was definitely picturing it to be closer to Karnan's tower than this. I know they said they couldn't have it next to it, but it's practically the other side of the park!

    I'm not complaining much though. This is going to be disgusting enough as it is without any impact of the vortices from Karnan. :p

    Do you guys reckon this will be super intense or just lacklustre.

    Based on my experience on the one at Nigloland, I don't think this'll be intense in terms of the drop, but hopefully it'll still be really scary! My thoughts on Le Donjon de l’Extreme from my trip last year:

    In my experience, the taller ones are usually less intense. Falcons Fury and Hurracan Condor are both pretty forceless compared to the likes of Detonator or Apocalypse.

    From experience, I found scream at Heide park pretty intense. Detentaors added intensity is because pneumatics fire it down rather than just dropping it.

    I thought that Nigloland's was :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing terrifying - it felt like the drop was just never going to end and constantly picked speed up until it slammed on to the brakes last minute.

    Since this is being built inside Nessie's structure (Pretty freaking smart usage of space on their part), what about Rasender Roland, the Vekoma rollerskater?
