    Nice surprise! Masterpiece Layout Rattle

    This is just a phenomenal ride. It's one of the most complete packages you can get. Queue, Pre shows, Theming, Ride, Effects, Layout, Forces (any many more things) are truly world class. The moment when you leave the last pre show room and enter the station with the empty train in that mystical lighting is just incredible. One of the only negative points that I can say is about the theming during the ride (mainly the dark ride parts). After leaving the station the train drives into complete darkness and that's where the theming stops and does not return until reentering the station. On the enclosed lifthill for example you can clearly see that you are in a concrete building and not in the old tower that you are told to be in doring the pre shows, just placing brick textures on the walls of the indoor parts would help it quite a bit. The second point is the capacity. They should put in a single rider queue to make up for the terrible capacity. When I was there, a 16 people train was dispatched around every 3.5 minutes which is just terrible. Seeing empty seats on them though makes it even worse. Nevertheless is this coaster one of the best in the world and deserves his five star rating no doubt. - ride from 2018 --- Update: Had another visit in 2020 and the cosster was really shaky and could be considered rough. Operations were horrible and enthusiast unfriendly

    Such an amazing ride! I loved every bit of it. I didnt think there was a rattle tho. It was really fast and an amazing front row coaster! The capacity is such a shame. I would love 20 rerides but it almost doenst make 20 rounds a day....

    Theming Intensity Layout

    I was stunned by this attraction: The overall apperance is just impressing, the theming is great and even the "pre-show" which decides your seat is a unique feature I had never seen before. But the ride itself is not less great: it is very forceful, fast and the layout is extremely variable, so there is no dead spot. There is a rattle, but it didn't bother me, I thought it even fitted to this relentless thrill machine (it is DEFINETELY NOT a "Family thrill ride", how the park once called it) After the final break run, the final inversion and helix are quite slow, so they seem a little pointless. But the rest of this coaster is absolutely amazing, it's one of my favourites in Germany!

    I only liked the nice suprise in the building and the big drop. The rattle on the coaster was unpleasant at this speed. I tried front row and back row.

    Incredible ride, brilliant theming and that brief ejector hill into the brakerun is just fantastic! The entire ride is also enhanced by the ludicrously comfortable lapbars. Brilliant!

    Lap Bar Nice surprise! Intensity Rattle

    Oh Shit. Now that's some intense ride right there. The cue line in the castle is incredible, probably the best cue I've ever seen in a non-major-brand-park in Europe. Being chosen randomly for the rows adds to the excitement factor and I like it, though you should hope for front row! This is where the coaster packs the most punch after the drop. At first you are pulled up vertically into the tower, where a pre-show begins. Unfortunately, there is too much reverb to understand what is being said, which does take away from this part of the ride. You do the backwards drop (better than expected, but starting too soft for a real drop feeling) and then rise to the top and into the first drop. It is best experienced in the back, but isn't bad in the front either. Not my favourite drop, but very good for sure. You then shoot out into broad daylight getting some good Gs in the valley. As if that wasn't intense enough, we once had a ride where it had started to rain in the meantime and we were in pain because of the impact of the drops, which coincidentally was probably one of the most intense rides I have ever had. The heart-shaped element coming up next is great, the change of direction at the first peak being a violent highlight in the front left. The beginning of the low-to-the-ground-part that follows is my favourite part of the ride, it is stupidly intense. The one airtime hill in the layout also delivers. Unfortunately, the coaster slows down significantly in its final 300m or so, failing to give you that slamming-into-the-brakes kind-of euphoria. What follows is a very slow heartline roll in the dark (fun) and a surprising photo point, when you are basically already rolling back into the station. World-class ride with world-class theming and world-class intensity in its first two thirds. Ride is not supersmooth, but certainly fine. Amazing overall, the pre-show can get tiring when reriding.

    What an awesome ride. The first drop and the reverse freefall on the vertical lift is great.

    Kärnan is an extremely intense ride with great transitions and airtime. On top of that, having such a fantastic ride with such good theming is rare, making it a truly unique and exciting coaster.

    So weird, yet exhilarating! Kärnan is really a one of a kind ride, very intense and relentless. It has several good pops of airtime, crazy snappy turns and an excellent drop to top it off!
