    Should be a great ride for the park! Accelerator at Drayton Manor is really fun, so I don't see why this won't be!

    Cool to see a nice, drawn out layout as opposed to a more compact one. Looks pretty solid!

    While I'm very glad to see a new coaster at this park, I would have liked to see them go a bit bigger. Their last coaster was in 2013.
    The park has also released this rather nice concept art:

    That first graphic looks really nice. Something about the scale of the trees with the ride, I think. If it comes anything close to that that'll be great!

    Quite like the look of this as a custom layout too.

    Excellent! It looks like it should fit in nicely for the park. Despite being home to several large rollercoasters, the place has a very tranquil feel to it. Probably all the trees and lakes. There's something quite graceful about the way the layout bounces through the greenery.

    I'm just wondering whether you'll get airtime on any of those hills going forward.

    I've always wished that Vekoma would build one of these fun-looking rides in the States - they'd make excellent, compact, unique and inexpensive family coasters while still offering a decent thrill for coasterfans.

    It's interesting to see more widespread layouts with the junior Boomerangs now (what with Tayto also going for one). I've always felt that the compact nature added to the fun of a Boomerang, but this does look pretty decent.

    *Sobs quietly in Norwegian*

    Anyway, interesting to see that the world gets another Saw: The Ride. It looks like a neat little addition for Fårup.

    You better hide! Saw is great. All other coaster enthusiasts are wrong except me.

    Saw is great in the front. Saw in the back is as rough as an SLC.

    If by great you mean a standard Eurofighter. And if by standard Eurofighter you mean generally pretty :emoji_poop:. Then, yes.
