Wodan: Timbur Coaster concept art

Europa Park has released a new video showing off progress on Wodan: Timbur Coaster, the major new wooden roller coaster that will debut at the park in spring 2012.

The video, embedded below, features footage of the ride's circuit and structure, which are now close to completion. Wodan: Timbur Coaster will stand at 115-feet-tall and will hit a top speed of 62 mph during its 3,444-feet-long circuit. It will be the first wooden coaster to join Europa Park's extensive line-up of thrill rides.

The Wodan name is derived from the Germanic version of Norse god Odin, a leading figure in Viking mythology. The "Timbur Coaster" subtitle is based on the Icelandic word for lumber, and appears to simply refer to the ride's construction materials.

The majority of attractions at Europa Park are built by Mack, the park's owner. However, Wodan will be manufactured by wooden coaster specialist Great Coasters International, which has strong ties with Mack.

Full details of Europa Park's new addition can be found in Theme Park Tourist's in-depth Wodan: Timbur Coaster preview.
