The Efteling is removing it's first attraction EVER.
After a though decision they are saying goodbye to the wooden coaster "Pegasus".
But no tears, the wooden coaster will be revived as a duelling woodie under the name "Joris en de draak" based on a very old Dutch legend like the flying Dutchman. The ride will open next year.

Some artwork:

I was only there the other week - amazing difference what a few days can make!

As pretty much everyone expected, Efteling have confirmed it's a GCI creation.

Personally speaking I find GCI coasters hit or miss, but one of their hits for me is Lighting Racer at Hershey Park. If Efteling's coaster is anything like, it could be amazing smile.gif

Roll on 2010!

It's been a while since I last posted some pictures.
The "Joris en de Draak" aka "Joris & the dragon" site is taking shape!
Now the track is completed they finally started theming it!

Excellent commercial for Efteling's new ride at an Amsterdam bus station!

Eventhough it's still a "kiddy" duelling coaster this ride I think the ride will be kickass due to the theming.
I'm definitely going on opening week.

Would love to go to Efteling, seems like a really well themed park with some great rides.

Thanks for your updates Oblivion smile.gif

I am willing to turn a blind eye to poor safety regimes as long as they get the theming right. In Six Flags, we get neither.
