An awesome looking mini-hyper coaster being built at Djurs Sommerland in Denmark.

It might only be 105 feet tall, but looks like it is going to pack a punch!

Nope it's going to have a lift. Just a very steep one. You see that bunch of supports with one being hold up by a cable? These are the lift supports [:)]

It looks awesome. I reckon this could be one of those coasters which rides way better than it looks. It may be small, but it looks like there will be alot of airtime [:D]

It will have a normal cable lift. You can see the lay out here:

Also this is the coasters website:

And if you want to follow the construction this is a good site:
www.themeparkdenmark.dk

I think this looks awesome. I really don't have the money to go there this year (going to NYC for two weeks [:P]), but I'm trying to fit a small trip down there anyhow. The best part is that all the three danish parks adding coasters next year is only 100km apart[:)]

This turn is HOT!

I'm excited about this one. And I'm no big fan of Intamin, but this looks sweet.

And here I thought that looks like the 'worst' part of the ride. [lol]

The rotation on the first s-hill looks awesome, I think.

Yeah I agree with Canadmos, that will probably be the least exciting turn...or part overall... of the ride. Do you like it for it's appearance or for how you think it'll ride?

nah, that last bend looks killer. The best one is by far the second (third?) after the hill where you bank up into the S-bend hill.
LUSH.

ps: that NL recreation had some serious con-roll issues.

Djurs Sommerland's website says:
Fastsp�nding: Hoftesele og hofteb�jle. �ger oplevelsen af fri bev�gelighed

I think this means as much as: it has lap bars with a belt which delivers a safe ride experience with a lot of freedom. Feel free to correct me Danish people as I don't speak danish very well [:)]

^^ Intamin would not do such a thing as to make a terribly built coaster like that.

I like it because it looks like it is going to be an intense turn. They wouldn't put so many supports beams under it if there weren't going to be some good g-forces there.

It will feature lap bars[:)] First Intamin in a while to do so if my memory serves me right!

You're perfectly correct[:P] I'm kind of impressed that a Belgian understood that!

this almost makes living only 45 min. from cedar point seem unfair. i want to ride that. :(
It looks like a lot of fun. It looks like a smaller version of maverick. also looks like some nice airtime.
