WODAN - Timburcoaster is a wooden roller coaster located at Europa-Park in Rust, Baden Wuerttemberg, Germany. It opened on March 31, 2012 and was built by Great Coasters International.[1]

The ride is located in the Iceland section of the park, which opened in 2009. It is the park's first and only wooden coaster.

Name[edit | edit source]

The coaster was named after the Germanic name of the Nordic god Odin. Timbur is the Icelandic word for wood.

Design[edit | edit source]


The coaster intertwines with two attractions: Atlantica SuperSplash and blue fire Megacoaster powered by GAZPROM.

Theme[edit | edit source]

WODAN - Timburcoaster is themed to Norse mythology. The queue line features several heavily detailed elements, including fire, mist and water effects. The goddess of death, Hel, is also featured and has a turning sand timer. Projection Mapping, smoke screens and moving ceilings are also used in the indoor sections, which immerse guests in mythology. In the station, statues watch the train leave and turn to watch the train arrive. The ride also features tunnels and a station fly-through.
