I'm baaaack! And boy, do I have a lot of catching up to do! One item that has immediately grabbed my attention is that a layout - specifically in the form of a fantastic model - has been released of Europa Park's new GCI wooden coaster, planned for 2012.
In addition to the model, which is on display at the park, there's also a new teaser video, which shows some of the layout as well. Not surprisingly, the ride looks great! The twisting first drop leads directly into a tunnel that sits in front of the highly themed station for the ride. The coaster will also interact with both Blue Fire, and the park's Super Splash flume, performing an airtime hill directly over the base of the latter's first drop!
A great gallery of shots of the model can be found here.
