Europa Park recently released some titillating images of the themeing for their future, currently unnamed roller coaster for 2012. COASTER-net previously reported the announcement in June.
As Germany’s largest theme park, and the second most popular theme part destination in Europe, Europa Park has high standards to meet for their eleventh roller coaster. Luckily for its fans, it doesn’t seem like it will be disappointing them anytime soon.
Their latest roller coaster is a Great Coasters International wooden creation that will rise 35 meters (115 feet) over its 1,050 meter (3,444 foot) track, coiled tightly in just 1.5 acres. The ride is expected to soar at just about 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) through its Scandinavian habitat.
According to the pictures, the park seems to be sticking consistently to the ride’s themed home – reportedly going into an Iceland-based area. The entrance, queue line, and station look to be the main focus of the themeing. In one of the pictures of the station, it even appears the ride will feature a station fly-through.
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.
Just based off of the concept art, the coaster looks to be beautifully themed. Hopefully Europa Park will release more details soon.
