Hasloch, Germany — From the ground , you can already anticipate the adrenaline that a ride on Holiday Park’s new roller coaster “Sky Scream” will produce. The 8 million euro coaster rises 55 meters high, from where it will go straight down starting in Spring 2014.
“What we have done with ‘Sky Scream’ as a European premiere remains true to our principles, continually surprising our visitors with unique innovations, ” says Park Manager Bernd Beitz .
“Sky Scream” made by ” Premier Rides ” (USA) combines several elements that will delight roller coaster fans worldwide : a total of three times the passengers experience a so-called “Launch” ( catapult launch ) out of the station – both forward and backward . A breathtaking looping and vertical fall and rapid accelerations make the unforgettable riding experience near perfect. The intense peak of the new attraction is a “Slow Motion” manouver more than 50 meters in the air : in slow motion, the thrill fans go headfirst through a twist before dropping again almost straight down.
The launch coaster is at the heart of a new 5,000 m2 area themed around the dark world of the undead and vampires. A deceptively designed, semi- derelict ghost town with an eerie station building , a “Fear Snack” and a souvenir shop compliment the new “Sky Scream.” Construction Director Luc Van der Biest says : “The new roller coaster is a masterpiece of technical know-how . With this new section , we will complete in a later phase , it is given a coherent framework that will do it justice . ”
