Ten million dollar wooden roller-coaster with a characteristic quality that makes it little special all over the rest of the wooden roller-coasters... it has built in and o quarry which acts as a support for the enormous structure. From the top you can see great view of the Mediterranean Sea and Benidorm's Bay, that will make MC the bes view roller-coaster all over the world.
You will walk inside MC through a typical wooden palisade (like Roman fortress). Will it's 1252 meter legth and 37.3 meter maximum height, and at a maximum speed of 1oo km/h, it's able to run 1.280 guests per hour. Its area it's about 20.600 square meter, and as I've said in structure is on three natural salient, part of an old quarry, that you will see close when you ride MC....
Designer for the project is wooden roller-coaster veteran engineer Dennis Starkey the Stand Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Werner Stelgen of Munich, Germany.
Imtan AG is providing the trains, drive and control systems. The ride is the fistt wooden roller-coaster to be fitted with magnet brake technology.
