    Wow.:eek: This looks like it could be a Steel Vengence killer. I will book flights as soon as there is a confirmed opening.

    Is it exactly the same as Goliath (albeit with I-Box) track or just similar to it? Goliath is fun, for sure.

    It sure is cheaper and easier to get to than Cedar Point that's for sure. You could do a top end 4 day trip for under £500 all in.

    Definitely going to book next year. Cedar Point is tempting to go back to but the journey is just such a pain and it's not cheap either.

    Poland here we come. I'm guna just sit on that RMC all day most likely.

    It seems to have taken some inspiration from Goliath, but this is somewhat taller and longer.

    The layout looks much better than Goliath's, IMO.

    According to JKM on Coasterforce, Zadra has an opening date set for 15th August :eek:

    Amazing news if true.

    15th August is the internal planned date. It's optimistic given the track isn't finished, but certainly doable.

    Publicly, they have said Zadra will open in Autumn 2019 and that the new area will be complete in 2020. The new area, with two small family coasters and lots of kids rides, soft opened yesterday.

    The new Vekoma family coaser, Frida, has now opened. Here is a POV:



    Very much a glorified kids coaster.

    New photos form FOMO Coaster show how the new area is looking:

    I'll be impressed if they can get Zadra open by 15th August considering that the track is not yet complete. But stranger things have happened! I cannot wait to see it testing.

    It will be cheaper for us to visit Energylandia than Towers :)

    I agree. It seems very optimistic. That's only just over 3 weeks away. No way is there enough time to do all the checks etc.

    Early September is my bet. That would still be hugely impressive given the incident that put them back months.

    It might be worth remembering that Wildfire at Kolmarden opened only around 2 or 3 weeks after track was completed, so it's certainly not impossible!
    EDIT: For reference, Wildfire's first test run was on 10th June 2016 and the ride opened on 28th June 2016, and the opening was only that late due to a technical fault with the trains!

    It's odd how they've put a lot of effort into the entrance theme to not have a single piece of themeing on the ride. I guess that's normal for this park?
