In the French TV show “Sept à Huit” broadcast on May 20th, 2018 on TF1 (French TV channel), Frédéric Dubosc, development manager at Parc Astérix (France) has announced the park is currently working on a new LSM launch coaster which will open in 2021 ! The park has taken the example of Taron, Phantasialand’s 2016 addition designed by Intamin. We can also talk about the latest Intamin LSM Coasters like Soaring with Dragon or Red Force. In addition, for the moment, by 2021, 3 new Intamin LSM Coasters will have opened with this technology. So we hope for new elements on this new roller coaster!
This is certainly an exciting announcement from Parc Asterix - might have to look at a return trip for 2021!
