HELP

Trace du Hourra (French for "Trail of Hurray") is a Mack Rides bobsled roller coaster located at Parc Astérix in Plailly, Hauts-de-France, France.

Theme

Trace du Hourra is set during the stone age before man walked on two feet. One day, a caveman learns to walk on two feet and excitedly runs down a hill shouting "Hourra" (Hurray) to tell his friends of his discovery. The track of the roller coaster is his course as he weaves between rocks. This is why this roller coaster is painted brown, rather than white as other bobsled coasters are.
