This has now been confirmed by the park
. The ride is shipping in 118 containers via the Port of Rotterdam, and will be constructed over a period of 3 months ready for opening in April.
The park gets around 450,000 guests per year only. Parc Asterix called the sellers to see whether Walygator really had bought this as Asterix were so suprised - and must now be worried. The ride will be the largest coaster in France. The park fought off 7 other parks to get the ride, which will open coupled with a €3 (£2.60) admission price rise next season. They reckon that people from across Europe will come to ride it. They are busy working on a name for the coaster!
