Video - Wodan: Timbur Coaster opens at Germany's Europa ParkSubmitted by Nick Sim on Thursday, March 29, 2012 08:35
Europa Park in Germany officially opened its first wooden roller coaster, Wodan: Timbur Coaster, on March 28, 2012.
The new coaster features a lengthy 3,444-feet circuit, and hits a top speed of 62 miles per hour following its 115-feet-tall first drop. Unlike many of Europa Park's rides, it was not manufactured by the park's owner, Mack Rides. Instead, wooden coaster specialist Great Coasters International was responsible for designing Wodan: Timbur Coaster.
Off-ride and "point-of-view" footage of Europa Park's new coaster was captured on its opening day by lifthill.net, and is embedded below:
Wodan: Timbur Coaster features a theme based around Viking mythology, with the Wodan name being derived from the Germanic version of Norse god Odin.
Full details of Europa Park's new addition can be found in Theme Park Tourist's in-depth Wodan: Timbur Coaster preview.
