The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 4 across and parallel with the track, 8 seats per car with 4 on either side of the rails and sitting back-to-back.
* Notes: Built at a cost of 3-4 million €. Half of the seats in each row are to either side of the track giving it 4th dimension attributes. Located between the Vekkula (fun house) and a stage.
* Structure: Based on Intamin's ZacSpin design, a variant of their Ball Coaster design whereby a traditional chain lift pulls each car up rather than using LSM (Linear Sychronous Motors) thus giving smaller parks an opportunity to afford this unique 4th dimensional design. Orange track with blue column supports.
* Elements:
* Features: Each car rotates freely along the way.

The Verdict
This prototype does what it needs to do well. Of course most would argue it needs to be larger and longer, and certainly it would be that much more interesting. Riding up the lift hill facing inward yields the better of the ride experiences. It's one of those quirky rides which sways almost as much as the laughter conjured on the ride. Peculiarly noted for those who suffer greatly from spinning, this coaster is mild in that department.
I rate it 5 Star's
