Specific Type: Wooden
Guests at Toverland can em-barque on an Odyssey. Since 2007 guests have been able to storm the city of Troy with their Great Coasters International (GCI) ride of the same name. Troy was Toverland’s first wooden roller coaster and they went big. They invested 6.5 million Euros on this over 100 foot tall, 3,534 foot long roller coaster that storms though its course at 54 MPH. The coaster is as imposing as a fortified Ancient Greek city, and has the look of a gatehouse and wall as the entrance to the queue. It is easy to get there just go past the large Trojan Horse left just outside the gate. This wooden coaster shares many signature elements that has made GCI so popular with wooden coaster lovers, but manages to create a unique layout for Troy as the tallest & fastest wooden coaster in Benelux.
Troy’s invaders start by loading into one of two millennium flyer trains. Each train can accommodate 24 riders and gives Troy a theoretical capacity of 850 riders per hour. After the lap bars are locked in place the train dispatches the station with a meandering path towards the lift hill. It takes a slow right, and then a left and begins the climb up to 104.5 feet in the air. The first drop is steep and banked hard to the left, the train tears down the first drop at 54 MPH. At the bottom the riders get turned on their sides as they traverse a steep banked turn and the train passes under the track for the first headchopper. The train climbs on one of GCI’s banked hills, and the train turns and dives under and through its own structure. It again climbs into a banked hill where the train does a turn around and then dips under the track again followed by a sharp turn to the right. The ride sends you into another relentless banked turnaround followed by a head chopper as it cuts under the track yet again at the triple crossover. A small airtime hill leads into a larger one, and the train banks around and does a station flythrough. At the exit the train drops down and into a quick left and a drawn out right turn. The track straightens out just to disorient riders with another quick left and drawn out right turn banking up around, and followed by a banked descent down to the left. The train twist back and forth out of control and flies under the last head chopper before hitting the brake run and heading back into the station. This twister coaster has left riders gasping for breath as they contemplate the surprise, Troy.
