The most intense coaster in France as of 2017, Monster is a very exciting inverted coaster! It has superb pacing, a good sequence of inversions and remains decently smooth despite the developing vibrations. Shame it is let down by its lacklustre location and presentation.
EnjoymentFun and intense old-school B&M!
IntensityVery forceful from start to finish. Many inversions whip you from one side to another, and there's quite a few elements with strong G-forces as well.
Rider ComfortNo headbanging and the track is generally smooth, but if you seat anywhere other than the front, you may get some bounces from the train during the bottom of the main drop and Cobra Roll exit. The coaster is now 20 years old and starts showing its age, sadly.
PacingThey removed the mid-course breakes so now the train runs really fast during the second half!
Theming/StorylineNo theming whatsoever. The ride is literaly installed in an empty field and the station is just a bunch of steel beams stuck together.
Upkeep/PresentationOld, faded colours, the train storage out in the open, and a developing rattle at some points. Walygator is neglecting their big coaster (mainly because they are cash-stripped to be honest), but the excellent B&M build makes up for it.
