Does anyone have the specs on the new Intamin inverted coaster in Sarkanniemi Amusementpark in Finland? I know it will have 5 inversions and take riders underground, but when exactly will it open, and how tall will it be? Has Intamin build other inverted coasters (is Eurostar from Intamin)?

Yes, Eurostar is built by Intamin in association with Giovanola. There is another european inverted coaster built by Intamin, which stands in Madrid. I think, it is called Tornado. From what I've heard he is very smooth in the three inversions (2 vertical loops and 1 corcscrew). There are also the Impulse coaster by Intamin like Superman, The ultimate escape at six flags ohio (www.bestofwhatsaround.com/SFO).

I've done Eurostar and it's a superb coaster. The box-track resembles that of B&M (who came from Intamin as it happens) and it's mostly pretty smooth, and very intense. However, while Giovanola is still using box track (they've just guilt a new inverter in South Africa that uses it, ), Intamin seems to have gone back to using zig-zag structured track, which you can see on its PKD inverter, Volcano. It will be interesting to see what the Finnish ride looks like.
