Loopings have posted the video once more, it can be found here. I hope this isn't the final speed because it looks to take some of the inversions painfully slowly! :lol


Hopefully, like other coasters, when it test runs it goes quite slower then the final version, something about warming up the wheels and track.

Launch coasters tend to gradually increase their speed the more that they test. Like Taron for example.
Ride count 2017: 249!
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 760!
Cred count: 65!

I would anticipate it's being slowly built up to a higher speed, hence why I say I hope it isn't its final speed :P

Although who knows, they might be going for hang time :lol

The first run is done with the minimum amount of LSM power needed to get a train travelling through a circuit - so long story short, it should speed up a fair bit :)

Apologies if this has already been posted, but Movie Park put up this amazing video of Operation Enterprise. It looks awesome!

Awesome video - does look like a great ride, and quite similar to the Capitol Bullet Train at Motiongate.

Movie Park have posted some photos on Facebook that give a closer, full-colour look at the front of the trains.

Here's the first on-ride POV!

Although it's edited in a way that breaks it up a fair bit it gives a good idea to how the coaster will take on its layout.

This is looking like a really awesome coaster, certainly making me want to make a trip over to Germany.

Loving the simple theming of the trains too, it looks really smart. Those trains are also really comfortable so should be a great ride.

Star Trek: Operation Enterprise is now in its soft opening phase, with it officially opening in June. Movie Park Infos have posted an article with images here, which show off the plaza area and queueline.

Oh wow! This looks stunning. So much attention to detail. Another park to add to the list.

Wow, just wow. The detail all across the ride is amazing, not just with the recreations of the Starfleet Academy and the Starship consoles, but also the Borg Cube in the queueline and the ride staff wearing Starfleet uniforms (and yes I am aware of how much of a geek I've just made myself sound :lol ). Definitely need to get back out to Germany to ride this!

Wow, that's pretty impressive! Surprised at how much detail they've put in, especially for a smaller park. That said, I feel like Helix will still remain the ultimate in Mack Mega coasters.

Watch here impressions of Star Trek Operation Enterprise - the new Mack Rides Coaster at Movie Park included all Pre-Shows & an Queue Line walkthrough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OYx3ldEb1A

You can ride this rollercoaster since a few day at the softopening. The Pre-Show and also the ride is amazing. It´s a nice rollercoaster for all handtime fans =)
