    With this, Yukon Quad and the Marsupilami Impulse, 2018 looks like one of best years ever for coasters in France !

    That was a rollercoaster of a read. Glad the other stuff is staying.
    Great little park and should be a great little ride.

    Unless this addition brings in a crazy surge of people to the park this is fine. I'd be up for moaning if it was at a slightly bigger park but I think even in the busier Summer months it won't get horrendous queues even with that low throughput.


    Glad to have confirmation that the Pax creds are staying.

    The name reminds me of when you make slightly more effort than leaving your new ride called Wooden Roller Coaster 1 in RCT.

    Look at the ride on the park map. Wonder how they designed that.

    This is my favourite thing ever.

    Also love how the tunnel is just a filled text box plonked over the ride!

    Where is that "graphic design is my passion" meme when you really need it?

    Just surprised it doesn't have 'New Coaster' in Comic Sans.

    Also adore how they didn't bother to use the same green as was already on the map. Adorable yet hilariously pathetic <3

    This picture reminded me there’s about 20 white and Bengal tigers locked up in the backs of lorries behind that circus tent. It’s :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing depressing this place seriously needs to bin off its animal circus, won’t be going again until they do.

    It's quite a nice sized drop actually! This ride looks better than OWT and Coastersaurus IMO.

    This actually looks pretty decent for a family coaster! In fact, all of these family GGs look decent for family coasters! Out of interest, what would anyone say about whether a family GG or Wicker Man is better, for those who have ridden both?

    They still have an animal circus? I didn't think that was legal anymore! Those poor animals!
    P.S. Sorry for double posting. If they wouldn't mind, could a mod please merge this post with my other one?

    The gravity group coasters look more intense and more airtime filled, but Wicker Man is on a larger scale.
