The Python, a real-life roller coaster is located at De Efteling, a theme park in the Netherlands. When it opened in 1981 it set several records for steel coasters in Europe. It was the tallest and had most inversions (4). It was the second longest in Europe as well. This was also the first custom Vekoma MK-1200 double loop, double corkscrew coaster as well as their largest coaster to date upon opening. It was also the first roller coaster built at De Efteling. For modelcoasters.com it is also the first roller coaster we have done outside of the United States and the first European one. That's why we choose this historic steel coaster.
