T-Express | Intamin Terrain Woodie for Everland
One ticket to Seoul please. T-Express is the name of a new roller coaster opening in Everland in South Korea. It’s an Intamin pre-fabricated wooden coaster in the same vein as the critically acclaimed El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure and Balder at Liseberg (Sweden). Intamin has created a new generation of wooden coasters that are as smooth as steel coasters. I can personally vouch for El Toro as it’s 3rd on my Top Coasters list.
Aside from the silky smooth ride it should give, T-Express is built on a hill and makes use of the park’s terrain. Terrain coasters (like Boulder Dash) are another favorite of mine. Also, at 5,838 feet long it’ll be the 6th longest wooden coaster in the world. It looks massive and the station and neighboring builds (not pictured) look great. T Express is the name of Korea’s largest cellular company. That’s kind of a weird way to name a coaster, but there are worse names out there.
Check out these T Express construction photos. It looks amazing. The closest I’ll probably ever get is one of Robb Alvey’s Coaster Expedition DVDs, but it’s better than nothing I guess. Image courtesy of AttractionR2 Blog.
