I also think it will be a really good Coaster and there is enough space.
With the Wooden coaster this is the best part of Europa Park
-Launch Coaster
-Splash Battle
-Wooden Coaster
-Kaffee Huis

PERFEKT !

Bell Rock Video - Roland and Thomas Mack (with English subtitles)

Kudos to EP, a few of us asked them on YouTube a few days back to upload a subtitled version of this, and they have done it.

Some information on the why's and wherefore's of Bell Rock.

:D

Dr. Schaeuble once said: "Mr. Mack, Europa-Park is like a lighthouse against the economic depression in our country". So we thought: why not build a lighthouse!

Oh Roland, you're so amazingly self indulgent and full of yourself but somehow you just get away with it. :P

Also, good old Scottish boarders. ;)

Update: 19.6.11

Quite a lot of ground work, and pouring has been going on lately:

Sadly, in spite of it being almost 5 weeks since the GCI news surfaced, EP have still said nothing about layout or theme.

Europa Park are really doing well this year, that looks like quite a high profile launch for the ride, it feels like fairytale alley was last years addition. I'd love to see a UK park with the same philosophy as Europa Park, they're hitting the nail on the head every time.

That really looks like a tunnel going in there. Either that or a river or moat, which would sort of fit the vague ideas for themes we know already.

20 new jobs? Is it really going to take that many people to operate? :P

Or maybe they mean construction... which isn't really a new job if it's only for a few months...

Factor in Ride operation a photo shop and maybe gift shop and then remember you need to rotate the jobs to cover 7 days a week then 20 jobs is likely the right figure

This is looking like a really promising coaster, comparing this to Troy it seems generally about the same length and height but quite a bit faster. Looks like its going to be quite a compact layout which means lots of nice tight twisting throughout the layout. Not going to make much of a judgement yet but it's on my cards as being a strong contender for next years rides.

Basically I'm really looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

Things really are moving at the moment, the depth of the digging that has been going on is considerable. Here are some images from today:

Okay this looks epic, really looking forward to Terenzi this year.

Hope one of those mazes is in the form of last years crossing over
