Europa Park's new wooden coaster had been living under the working name of Mythos, but its official name has recently been announced. The park recently debuted its official name asWodan: Timbur Coaster according to Theme Park Tourist andAirTimers.
The name Wodan refers to to the German word for the Norse god Odin. Odin was one of the major gods of Norse mythology which was practiced by the vikings. As it sounds, the phrase "Timbur Coaster" refers to the fact that the coaster will be made of wood--the word "Timbur" is based off of the Icelandic word for lumber.
As previously announced the ride will be set in an Icelandic based area. With the phrase, “Ein Mythos Erwacht,” or "A Myth Awakens" in English being used, one can assume that the themeing will have to do with mythology. Taking a look at the pictures, one can see what the park is calling “Mimir,” the fountain of wisdom, as well as the queue line going past “Nidhogg,” the envy dragon.
Wodan is going to be a GCI wooden coaster standing around 115 ft tall. This is breaking the mold for Europa Park since most of the park's coasters are built by Mack, who holds part ownership of the park.
