German theme park will introduce a first-of-a-kind attraction featuring a 240-foot-tall high-speed hyper-coaster sandwiched between a pair of medieval-themed dark ride experiences.
Set to debut this summer at Hansa Park, Karnan's Oath: Beware of Its Spell will join two other dark ride-coaster combos built by Gerstlauer at the park: The Curse of Novgorod and the Snake from Midgard.
Billed as a challenging and adventurous family thrill ride, the high-speed hyper-coaster will feature a theme based on a Swedish medieval fortress built in the 1300s. Concept art for the ride shows the coaster swooping through a 260-foot-tall replica of the fort's distinctive stone tower. A soundtrack has been specifically recorded for the ride by a symphony orchestra.
