Europa Parks website has posted Teasers about the new ride, saying, "The ride of your life: World's first 2009." The ride is a prototype design from Mack.

Image

Roland Mack also gave these words to a local German newspaper.
"The park will be enlarged with 70-85 hectares which are now still situated outside the park's boundaries. For this to happen, the access road will be moved. The centerpiece of the new themed area will be a new roller coaster. The ride will feature elements and techniques, never seen before."

Teasers also hint that the ride launches you at 2.5 seconds and includes inversions. There has not been an official press release yet.

Construction so far:

Europa Park is owned by Mack GmbH, and in many cases they use the park to showcase their rides. All of the coasters in their collection (a total of nine) are made by Mack, except for Silverstar, a B&M Hyper.

To see the full-size teaser photos and more, go to Europa Park's website, http://www.europa-park.de

It will be very interesting to see a large scale coaster for them.

Bobsleds too.

This looks like it might become the economy accelerator coaster so to speak.

Nope, Silver Star is B&M...
And also, I think the pirate ship is Intamin, but I'm not sure...

Anyway, I can't wait to see more about this!
It will actually make a 10+ hours trip to europa park worthy!

It's worth it now as well, in my opinion. Europa Park is just awesome. Great theming, nice attractions. And with this complete new area, they are just going to get better and better. The park is pretty big now, but with this going to be added.. Wow, just great.

or 7 or 4 or 19! Dude you need to capitalise, space and spell properly, it's kinda annoying. Anyway! I think that this is gonna be pretty cool, although I must admit that i was not aware that mAck did all those things, I mean, I was aware of the fact that they did water coasters, but I didn't really think on it about the other stuff. Oh well.

Europa Park = Mack. They use it as there showroom.

And the last ride in Europa Park, Pegasus is so darn smooth, that it's pretty promising where this will lead.

If you look in that pic Austin posted, look at the support. There is a track connection point right to the bottom left. I wonder why that is there as if it is track it looks way to close to the other track piece.

www.epfans.info has posted new pictures of the ride! The first turnaround is complete along with a section of an inversion possibly?
