Trains and test runs The Max locomotive, weighing more than 1,300 kg, is now in place on the track – meaning one of the two rascals has found his place in Efteling. Efteling’s Theme Park director, Coen Bertens said: “This is another major milestone for the project and is certainly exciting. It takes about three days to assemble the entire train, bringing the most important elements – track and train – together. The next step is testing the ride and we are all really looking forward to it.” The second train, representing Moritz, will follow late March. When the trains are

complete, the test runs will start. Each train of the Max & Moritz roller coaster consists of one locomotive and nine

sets of carriages. In total, 38 visitors will ride one train. Before the family roller coaster opens, test runs are conducted – a special moment for the project team and the designers as this is the first time they will see their work come together.

Frau Schmetterling, locks them up in her workshop. The two rascals make a clever plan to escape from it. Visitors to the family roller coaster escape with Max and Moritz on a crazy

adventure. When they return to the workshop, they are surprised by yet another trick by Max and Moritz. Moritz makes the pipe of their teacher explode, so that the train goes around one more time. Meanwhile, Max jumps so hard on a large whoopee cushion that this train also makes a second lap. The trains will run in opposite directions,
