Mammoth Railroad at Gardaland

Now this is what Merlin's prepared to fund at Gardaland, and it looks awesome! It's a huge, 3-lift Vekoma mine train. Now this I would not say no to.

I love Mine Train Coasters, absolutely love them, and I hope this one is themed wonderfully as all the other Vekomas are.

I must say, the layout looks very impressive.

Now THAT is what I call a coaster!

Only thing is, I've just read about it in First Drop, and two things surprise me:

Firstly, the tallest lift is only 46ft. Secondly, the trains are 32-seat. Don't you think the trains sound a bit long? After all, a single car wild mouse is about 50-55ft.

But overall, I'm very, very positive about this and I wouldn't mind the layout being directly copied and put into a small/medium UK park.

Graeme, Big Thunder at MK sat 32, if I am correct. I'm guessing it's the 3 benched cars. I'm so geeked out by this new coaster. :)

Yes, its 5 cars seating 6 and the locomotive seating 2 people.
