    Ranked much higher now on my list since they doubled the speed of the backwards freefall

    Theming Nice surprise! Masterpiece

    This ride is everything to me. It has amazing theming, great score, and the drop is put of this world. Love it that the ride has (almost) no inversions and it has some great unique elements. A true masterpiece!

    First Drop Masterpiece Intensity

    If "Creativity" was a Pro you could pick, this ride would really deserve it. It was the first Roller Coaster that really feared me, with its enclosed 72m vertical Lifthill and the vertical twisted drop of the same height. It is unique in many ways i liked AND pretty dang intense. Its not smooth but it blends with the intensity. The most thrilling ride i have ever done, the coaster that i love to bring people on the most, just an intimidating Peace of Art from Gerstlauer. In my eyes a must-do! The Layout itself falls of after the first of the small Camelbacks, but that doesnt make it a 4,5 stars Attraction for me. I Hope Gerstlauer does more Hypercoasters

    Pace Intensity Layout Capacity Discomfort

    The overall apperance is just impressing, theming is very well done in the queue and even the "pre-show" which decides your seat is a unique feature I had never seen before. But the experience itself is not less great: it is very forceful, has some nice airtime moments and the main part of the layout is taken with a ridiculous pace, so there is no dead spot. The ride is definetely not the smoothest on earth, but it didn't bother me, I even think it kind of fits to this relentless thrill machine (it is DEFINETELY NOT a "family thrill ride", how it is claimed by the park) and due to the lap bars, there is no headbanging. The main downsides are the low capacity and the very long time hanging at the vertical lift hill which gets quite uncomfortable after several rides. These aspects are due to the backwards free fall, which feels quite weak and pointless - I think this gimmick could be cancelled without many complaints. After the break run, the final inversion and helix in the dark are quite slow, so they seem a little pointless. But the rest of this coaster is absolutely amazing, still one of my favorites in Germany!

    Amazing machine, it goes so fast and it feels so illegal. Sadly the capacity isnt the best and the Layout falls of on the way Back to the tower, but the whole First Half easy makes up for it in my opinion. One of the best Rollercoasters i have been on

    First Drop Nice surprise! Intensity Capacity

    This is Masterpiece even if you have to wait long. It has the Drop, the positive Forces, a bit Airtime, forceful direction changes and a great Theming. The biggest Surprise for me was how much i would enjoy the Hangtime on the Inversion at the end. Great Element to end the ride. Why is no one talking about it? It's Layout is also pretty unique and I wished we would see more coasters like this one.

    Theming Lap Bar Intensity Capacity

    This is hands down the most intense coaster I have ever ridden. The speed and forces exciting the +200ft vertical drop are incredible and leave you flying into airtime hills and snappy transitions. Plenty of whip, loads of ejector airtime moments and comfortable lap bar restraints. Have I yet mentioned this has the best and most imposing theming on any coaster I have ridden? The soundtrack by imascore pounds as you are dragged towards a monster of a twisted vertical drop and there are some great surprises on the way. 5 stars and the second best of the 160 credits I have done. Didn't notice any jolty transitions like many gursts but some vibration from the sheer speed

    Nice surprise! Pace Rattle Capacity

    Note: This first part of this review is no longer up to date - 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 really shaky and could even be considered rough. It felt more like a wooden coaster on steel track (not in a good way) Operations were horrible and enthusiast unfriendly. It's a shame to see a coaster fall so far from a revisit. Kärnan easily left my top ten because it was more painful than fun that day ;-( - Also there is so much lost potential in the theming. The "Special effect" which I am still not spoiling (despite the fact that probably everyone knows about it already anyways) is just in a concrete box. Just think about what could have been done there: Lighting, Themed walls, Sound Effects, Breaking wooden bar effects for example, the list goes on

    First Drop Lap Bar Intensity Capacity

    I rode more than 200 coasters before i get on this one but this was the first time when i stand in front of the line/queue that i was a little nervous. To bad i knew already the secrets about this coaster but how it do that to me is awesome. Smooth coaster for a Gerstlauer and very random layout and low on the ground. And the way of let you know where to sit is awesome. Theming wise this is amazing and with a nice soundtrack from Imascore this is a perfect coaster for a 6th place in my top 20 coasters still. Only negative is the capacity of the ride with 3 trains on a busy day but we had 2 trains so it was more then a half hour wait for us.

    Airtimes Pace Intensity Rattle Capacity Discomfort

    What a ride! The pacing is relentless, theming brilliant and the forces are incredible.This ride have the best overall package I have experienced when it comes to ride experience. Not a single dull moment and not a sign of a dead spot! And the g-forces is the most complete package ever. They are all over the ride. The restraints are ok, and the ride have some bad rattle in the 2 first valleys. But killer pacing, insanely good g-forces and some of the best direction changes I have experienced make up for the rattle. The most complete coaster I have ridden and my current number One.

    Karnan is not roller coaster. Karnan is an experience. I have never felt the story like on this masterpiece. Layout is not the best in the world, but story and theming brings it to the TOP.

    What an odd ride this is. Such a cool lifthill and drop but damn does if have a bad rattle. I don't mind a Mack rattle but this is really bad. It takes away A lot from the ride experience. The pacing is out of this world wich makes the rattle even worse. The lay-out is great and it does have some good air. I hope the park will improve the capacity cause 1 train every 3 minutes is something you need to fix with a full queue. (Sidenote: it smells like popcorn in the station.)

    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....

    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.
