Juvelen at Djurs Sommerland

Juvelen at Djurs Sommerland
"Juvelen", the new rollercoaster sensation at Djurs Sommerland, premiered in early May and we got a chance to ride it during our visit of the Danish park. The station design themed as an ancient Mexican pyramid is outstanding and a perfect optical start for the juwel raid. The whole area was covered with trees and bushes gaining their complete impact in a few years giving the effect of a wild drive through a jungle.

The trains are designed as quad bikes and have an interesting feature: there are only low seat backs, so turns seem to be much more intense because the upper part of the body has no hold. With a track length of 1,000 metres "Juvelen" is the longest rollercaster in Denmark and also a premiere in Europe because it is the continents first launch coaster with two but one launches. After leaving the station the trains have a short stop in the inner pyramid with several statues and a great soundtrack. The trains gain speed by friction wheels and get launched into some turns and airtime hills followed by a second stronger launch, reaching a maximum speed of 85 km/h.

The ride is simply amazing – the second launch takes most visitors by surprise. Manufacturer Intamin built a masterpiece with "Juvelen", the rollercoaster is pure fun for families and thrillseekers in equal measure. No question, "Juvelen" really is a juwel ...
