Seriously annoyed about this. It took me a four hour drive plus a two and a half hour queue to get across the closed German boarder in order to get this at Oktoberfest last year (as an add on to a work trip to Vienna). Was totally led to believe it would be leaving the travelling circuit.
First it turns up at Vienna and now in London. I'm gonna go and throw it some serious shade. Might even ride it again, who knows.
It won't beat my solo rides in the pissing down rain though.
Same boat as Sue. So much effort to get to a German fair to ride it because it would be the last ever chance, and now it shows up bloody everywhere. It's fab news though and great for the Brits to not have to go to Vienna/Germany. Just don't expect too much... It's crazy for a traveling coaster and fun enough, but it's honestly not much better than the average creds at other parks. It's really not that amazing.
I find it funny how everyone is gooning out about this, yet I've managed to ride it in two different locations this year.
It still runs the best at Oktoberfest. The forces it pulled in the last seat with 7 car trains were obscene. <3
I rode it at Oktoberfest last week. The forces are intense in the back car but overall it is pretty much "Knightmare with 5 loops", which isn't a bad thing. For a travelling ride it is very impressive but I did come off slightly underwhelmed, the restraints are awful too until you learn how to ride it.
An operator told me that it will run with 7 car trains at Winter Wonderland but I will believe that when I see it.
The " :lol: " represented me making a joke, I didn't take anything you said to heart ha. If you've been on it, that's fabulous for you - it will be nice that some people who couldn't be arsed to travel from the UK to get to it can finally ride it now
