The experience of this extensively themed rollercoaster starts with a themed indoor queue line where guests enter the medieval city of Novgorod. After boarding the vehicles, riders are presented two scenes before being launched into the outdoor rollercoaster part. After re-entering the building the ride features a vertical lifthill (including projections) and vertical drop into the final coaster part which takes place entirely indoors. After disembarking the vehicles, guest must follow a maze to find their way towards the ride's exit.
The storyline of the ride is about a 14th century trader in the Hanseatic League, who is searching for his father who mysteriously vanished in the Russian city of Novgorod.
"Fluch von Novgorod" is German for "Curse of Novgorod"
