The 2014 Theme Park Insider Tournament: Blue Fire vs. Silver Star
Published: March 7, 2014 at 12:21 PM
Germany's Europa Park is one of those. The second-most popular theme park in Europe, after Disneyland Paris, Europa Park is owned by the Mack family and the park serves as a showcase for Mack Rides products. One of those is Blue Fire, a Mack megacoaster that debuted in 2009.
It's not the tallest or fastest coaster in the park (wait a minute....), but it's a peppy launched coaster that features a vertical loop, twisted horseshoe roll and a heartline roll. Let's ride:
Blue Fire's opponent today is the park's tallest and fastest coaster, and one of the few non-Mack rides in the park. The Mercedes-Benz-sponsored Silver Star is another Bolliger & Mabillard hyper coaster, topping out at 240 feet and with a top speed of 79 miles per hour.
Climb aboard for your virtual ride:
Okay, it's decision time. Which of these coasters should advance to the next round?
