GCI's 18th Ride is a Beauty

© Great Coasters International

It's been a little while since we've checked in on the progress of Wodan, Europa Park's fantastic looking new Great Coasters wooden ride.  The ride recently had it's last major bents put into place, marking the end of the large vertical construction phase.

Seen above, and in other photos shared by GCI, The ride's turn that interacts with the park's Blue Fire coaster is looking pretty neat.  I like how it crosses over then under the ride in a matter of seconds, only to dive down into a trench right after.

You can also see how far along the station structure is, as well as some of the ride's theming elements more than well under way.  Wodan is going to be one beautiful ride when it opens, no doubt about it.
