The "Other" El Toro

September's featured coaster on my work and bedroom calendars is El Toro at Freizeitpark Plohn in Lengenfeld, Germany. Opened in 2009, built by GCI.

Picture doesn't show anything of the layout, although I looked on RCDB. Looks decent, although small. Train looks similar to a Millennium Flyer.

Any of our URC world travellers ever been on it? Opinions?

Here is a video on youtube. Looks to be a fun little ride.

Hmmmm ... I wonder if you are able to ride the back right seat without being knocked over by some lunatic coaster enthusiast.

Airtime hills, headchoppers, two tunnels, and a flat turn finale, Lil' Toro just about has it all. I never been outside of the U.S., so of course I haven't ridden it, just an observer watching the youtube clip. The youtuber who posted the vid said that it had good air on those airhills.
