Incredible! I didn't realise it looked so much like Batman: The Ride, or that Intamin Inverted seats were 4-across. We need a permanent version in Blighty (with tunnels etc).

Excellent photos.

It really looks great, but the ride is so terrible, since Bruch (the owners) bought new wheels. There is headbanging over all. Sometimes they already shut the last seats cause of this problem. But it is nice looking, you are right.
Greetings
P.S. There is another problem: The Eurostar is so expensive! I don't think that you can earn money with this machine.

There's a little banging on the righthand side but this is easily avoided if you lean with the inversions. I've done it at three different fairs and never had a problem with it. The back seat is the best of all!
As for the design, it's very similar to a B&M. It was done with Giovanola and their new South African inverter looks similar in terms of track and seating configuration, while Intamin are now using two across seats and different track.

I also have the feeling that the ride is a lot smoother when you ride it one of the first days that it's open. It seems to get rougher the longer it operates. I have to try the left side next time, I felt some banging the last time I went. I was sitting on the right. User Submitted Picture
