First let’s start by doing a little summary of what the coaster will be: Krampus Expedition is a Mack Water Coaster with a custom layout specially designed by Mack as requested by the park. Originally, it was supposed to be a Superplash model from Mack similar to Atlantica SuperSplash at Europa Park but with an elevator lift! The park wanted something more special so they designed a custom layout in coordination with Mack. The ride will be 28m tall, 600m long and will have a maximum of 3.5G.

The coaster will be themed on the popular myth of Krampus, a beast who come to punish children who haven’t been kind at the time of Christmas. The total cost of the project is 12M euros, with 6.5M for the coaster only. The theming will be on point as the park decided to step-up their theming level. The rockwork will be done by Universal Rocks, the same company who did the rockwork on Taron at Phantasialand and Velocicoaster at Universal’s Island of Adventures.
