    Masterpiece Intensity Smoothness

    This ride is just insane. Really intense, smooth (for a prtable ride), a interesting and long layout and just an impressive scale for a portable ride. Just impressive. Also I found the 20 second dispatches amazing ;)

    Airtimes Nice surprise! Fun

    I was really impressed by this ride. It's insane how El Toro keeps his pacing while only being 20m tall. a really smooth, fun and also surprisingly long ride. In my opinion this ride could be considered the small version of Wodan at Europapark (my favourite woodie at the time of this review). It's sad that these small scale GCI's are not more common.

    Airtimes Theming Discomfort Dead spots

    From reading/watching reviews of Expedition GeForce, I expected this to be one of my favourite coasters ever. Unfortunately it ended up not even making my top 10. Yes it does have a lot of airtime, but thats not all a coaster needs to do. Basically everything that is not airtime is completely forceless, topped off by the part between the second airtime hill and the final bunnyhops which does absolutely nothing. - The second negative point concerns the comfort. The restraints dig into your legs (especially when you get stapled) and make the only good parts of the ride (airtime) unenjoyable and painful. I did not have this problem on Goliath at walibi holland which uses the same trains though. - The theming is inexistent and the station is just not a pleasant place to be and prepare to be there for a while. Seatbelts combined with one train ops :/ - I could not understand how so many people ranked this so high so I decided to revisit the park. Unfortunately without success. My opinion stays the same after getting 16 more rides. - I hope they decide to work on this ride in the future. My recommendation is to add some basic theming (nothing crazy, just make it a pleasant place to be) and add new trains with the new Intamin restraints as seen on Taron, Taiga etc. These changes would make the ride good enough to be ranked higher for me but at it's current state i'm afraid it only gets 2.5 stars from me.

    Theming Launch Fun Capacity Dead spots

    A really cool coaster that can impress with a solid storyline, good theming and an absolutely insane launch. The ride has a very strange and unconventional layout which combined with the theming makes it an unforgettable experience. The only negative point is that the part between the first airtime hill and the heartline roll doesn't do much. Still, the overall experience is good enough to make up for that. Highlights are that launch, the top of the drop and the exit ;)

    Nice surprise! Masterpiece Layout

    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.

    Headbanging Discomfort Tear it down!

    I was told that EL Condor was the worst SLC. BOY was I wrong. This is by the time of the review (158 credits) the only coaster that managed to injure my ear through headbanging. The pain continued beyond the ride and remained until part of the following day. Out of the four SLC's that I have ridden by the time of this review this is the worst one.

    Smoothness Harness Disappointing! Discomfort

    After riding both Swarm and Fenix I have to say that this thing was really disappointing for me. Not as forcefull as I wished and it felt kind of pointless. To make it even worse the restraint came down a lot at the bottom of the first drop and made the ride very painful. I got this problem during both my rides on Flug der Dämonen and not at all on Swarm or Fenix.

    Nice surprise! Comfort Intensity

    WOW I thought I knew what mack launch coasters felt like. I was expecting another star trek when going in but I got something quite different. The most intense mack i've been on in my opinion. Really good airtime, a snappy zero g roll and good positives. The launches are, as expected, not that strong but still good enough to make it a fantastic ride. It features a small layout but at the same time a really good one.

    Theming Location Intensity

    Insanely good B&M invert. The theming is really well executed and its amazing how you can barely see the ride from anywhere. Also I find it amazing how intense of a ride they can pack into the 26m height. The last helix is amazing and just as good as the enclosed brakerun in a cave.

    Nice surprise! Masterpiece

    My Winjas Fear review applies to this one too : "- Amazing spinning coaster(s). This is the prime example why maurer spinners are my favourite. The special effects (not gona spoil them) make these stand out."

    Duration

    Temple of the night hawk was fun but the VR isn't any good. I recommend to tell the operators to let you ride without the VR. It was way better than the VR experience and gives back the temple of the night hawk vibes.

    Nice surprise! Fun Intensity

    From the ride itself it is the best minetrain. The theming is fine but could get a redo. For a minetrain it is also really intense with a creative layout and it remains exciting until the end.

    Launch Fun Masterpiece

    Absolutely Unbelievable. Long Layout. Insanely Fun. Probably the best themed coaster. Two strong launches. Quality airtime moments. Great whip. Such a complete package. Nightrides are Phantastic. Queue is a letdown compared to the rest of the ride but just going there at the ERT event makes up for it. - Also the ride provides a unbelievable experience in every seat of the ride with the front ones being the best (Left a tiny bit better than right)

    Nice surprise! Launch Layout

    A really nice and definitly underrated infinity coaster. Fantastic launch, theming and layout

    Nice surprise! Fun Intensity Rattle

    Well this is a phenomenal ride that deserves more attention. - The ride starts begins with the amazing lifthill experience dancing to CSO - Liftoff (one of the most amazing soundtracks for a coaster) and ends with a bang. The last helix is really intense and the brakerun following it could be considered an element.

    First Drop Pace Masterpiece

    Wodan never disappoints. Incredible first drop, Great pre-lift section and most importantly perfect pacing. To top it off there is amazing theming and a great soundtrack. Definitly the best ride at the park. -- Also I really like how Europapark got a GCI without the stupid seatbelts under the restraints

  • Flurin S.

    Fun Rattle Discomfort

    Severe rattle at some places but overall still a fantastic watercoaster. The new restraints can close way too far down though and will make you sit uncomfortably if you don't pay attention to how far they are closed.

    Harness Launch Intensity

    Front row is quite good but most other rows provide quite a lame ride experience. Besides the last heartline roll this thing does not really have any highlights. One of the better Mack launches but compared to the competition still a really forceless one. I prefer to just ride the thing next to it ;)

    Fun Intensity Discomfort

    This was such an amazing ride before it got "cancaned". Especially on the Punpkin coaster event this thing provided a surreal experience. Although some people find this rough I found the rattle on this thing was amazing and added to the experience. Im really sad that this is gone. It used to be one of my favourite rides at EP.

    Theming Pointless

    This redo is my opinion Europaparks worst decision. I was personally a big fan of the old Eurosat (especially at the Punpkin coaster event) but they literally removed everything that was good about it. The queue theming is well done but as soon as the ride starts the theming quality turns from 100% to 1% The ride is forceless and the music does not really fit. The only good thing I can say about this is the train design, which to me looks absolutely fantastic. This ride does not deserve the Eurosat name on its logo. What they should have done in my opinion is theme it to Jules Verne journey to the moon. That way it would fit the French theme while still keeping the space vibes.

    First Drop Location Layout

    A really fantastic coaster and at the time of this review it has my favorite first drop. The first half is incredible, however it loses a lot of its speed after the second inversion. I think I've had my expectations a bit too high for my first RMC. The setting is beautiful and makes the coaster stand out. No doubt a top tier coaster though.
