It's clear that the Boarding Pass will return when you see this picture: The line is straight on, with the Single Rider Line next to it.
Can't wait to try this thing out in May

First testrun!





Looks like they made the lift a bit faster
I'm not sure though

Wow, I’d really like to see a comparison video of the coaster!

This looks incredible!
Oh, were you expecting something here?

I have to comment those supports remind me of the RCT3 "steelworx" construction parts - wow! :D

It really looks like that airtime after the loops has been completely nulled. Now the only bit left is the backseat on the first drop.

I'm not too surprised by that since the Arrow air hills were always rather abrupt.

Progress has been made on the queue line.
It looks like that there will be music poles/boxes in the queue, could this mean that the Python theme finally will be used in the park?




Also, some areas have opened up

I'm still really intrigued to see how this goes.

The ride reopened today!

First onride!


From 1 April ;-)

The Efteling also starts today with selling Python merch and bolts from the old supports (UPDATE: The bolts are sold out)

I've just compared the old and the new Python onride from the park.
-It's smoother now
-It's a bit faster
-The lift is definitely faster

Looks like they've done a decent job all things considered!

If I'm correct, the liftspeed already always was faster when there was just one train running on the track. Just so that with a two train operation they had a bit more time to fill the train at the station without letting the people wait at the brakes.

The trains needed some slight adjustments. One train was running today. The other train still had to be adjusted.

The ride was indeed smoother. The only thing I found weird was that the transition between the first and second corkscrew felt like it had a bit of a bump... But maybe that's just me since I've only ridden it once today.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are right. When looking at the video it feels like the corkscrews have a continuous roll issue. :lol: As the rotation speed constantly changes throughout both corkscrews. I'll probably find it out myself anytime soon. :)
