There was a time when a B+M coaster was a rarity in Europe, and
riding a new one was something I looked forward to in major
anticipation, knowing I'd be in for something special. Nowadays with
more major parks getting their own B+M your being spoilt for choice.
Has this made them any less special to ride? I don't think so.
in 1995 this was one of the earliest models to grace Europe, but you
wouldn't know by looking at it. The theming and look of the ride and
the Chinese themed area it's in is both beautiful and immaculate. It
looks like it could have been built a month ago.
only that but the track layout still easily holds up, even
outshining many modern creations, even many years on. With it's 148
foot hill lift, 100 foot plus first loop, followed by 7 more
inversions in a twisted intricate layout it's one of the most
monstrous roller coaster creations your likely to find anywhere in
seen all this you'd come to the conclusion it would have to do
something catastrophically wrong to be anything other than
top level ride. The good news is it gets everything right. The train
tears around the track providing thrill after thrill as it hits the
different ride elements. The pacing is nigh on perfect, there is
enough variety to eliminate any sense of being repetitive, it's one
of the best examples of a multi looping coaster out there. Even with
more B+M coasters hitting the market this still holds up as one of
their best creations and a must try coaster.
