A New Euro-Fighter for Germany: Karacho

There are many international amusement parks that I will admit I do not know much about, including Germany's Erlebnispark Tripsdrill.  However, the brand new Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter than the park has recently opened could make that a different story!

The recent designs in the Euro-Fighter category each look better than the last, and this one is named Karacho.  The coaster features a launch that sends the cars out of a darkened tunnel (which contains a heart-line roll to boot) up into a nearly 100 foot tall top hat element.  After that there are several elongated inversions, including a great dive loop into a tunnel immediately followed by an oddly shaped corkscrew.  At the end of the video make sure to check out the awesome theming on the back of the cars!

Tripsdrill, as the park is commonly referred to, is also home to Mammut, a large wooden coaster, and G'sengte Sau, a Gerstlauer bobsled ride.

I've said it before, but a ride like Karacho would fit so many mid-sized parks over on our side of the pond.  You have to wonder why there haven't been more of them built?
