After being rumored for years, the addition of a new thrill coaster and country to Europa Park was officially confirmed at the start of this season, but the park didn't reveal much outside of the fact that it will be a Big Dipper with new 16 person trains in a new croatian area.
That being said the ride was rumored to be named Voltron Coaster and to feature a vertical launch.
Since then, permits (or at least administrative documents) of the ride have been made accessible on the website of the city the park is located in (as required in the planning procedure), however they were very "messy".

And that's why I created a simplified (but as complete as I could) plan of the new ride from my analysis of these documents, and here it is:

Clear Layout v2 1.png

Legend

1 : Separate Unload & load stations
2 : Potential show scene
3 : Vertical launch
4 : Loop
5 : Downward roll
6 : Airtime hill
7 : Immelmann
8 : Non inverting immelmann
9 : Stall
10 : Airtime hill
11 : "Dive" (Stengel dive? Overbank?)
12 : "Loop" (Dive loop?)
13 : Brake run
14 : Turntable
15 : Triple launch
16 : Spike (Vertical? Inversion? Twisted?)
17 : Tophat
18 : Airtime hill
19 : "Reverse banked stall" (Outer bank?)
20 : Double up
21 : Brake run
22 : Roll (Barrel roll? Zero-G?)
23 : S-curve
24 : Corkscrew
25 : Final brake run

: Rails
: Station
: Show scene
: Vertical launch
: Triple launch
: Turntable
: Brake runs
: Buildings
: Paths and exterior queue
: Unknown rest of the area





A : Maintenance bay
B : Planned warehouse (not yet built)
C : Entrance of the coaster
D : Path linking Croatia to Russia
E : Exit gift shop

In addition to that, I made a few alternate versions of the plan:

So what do you think of this new coaster coming to Europa Park?
In my opinion it looks to be a complete roller coaster experience thanks to it being a lenghty mix of both airtime and inversion complemented with unusual propulsion methods.
We can expect a well themed station from EP, as well as a show scene before the first launch, that being said I hope that the turtable and triple launch area will be themed as the train will have to spend a few tenths of seconds moving relatively slowly in that part of the layout.

I just learned today about "ignore" and what exactly it does. Very handy. As far as this coaster, it sounds great, but... how reliable will a vertical launch be? I guess there is only one way to find out. Should feel amazing, I'd think.

It's a mixed bag.... it hides the train wreck but you still constantly see references to that train wreck. I was excited to find that option as well but then got mroe annoyed. YMMV

Storm Coaster already is operating with one.
