    Chengdu Wanda City | Unknown | Taron Clone

    The chinese name is 极速狂飙 which seems to translate as Speed Hurricane (it doesn't seem to translate directly to English as I've come across a couple of different translations) . However the parks often have a seperate English translation on the signs which is where the amusing names sometimes...

    Weird, Wacky & Strange Coaster Bits

    This ride opened in 2017 😂 i always thought it had just a drop track rather than a robot arm. its cool to see though. I guess as the ride is in Harbin (Sunac Harbin (ex Wanda harbing) if you're interested) and is so far away from anywhere else its never got an enthusiast on it yet to notice...

    Sunac started switching parks to free entry with pay per ride a while ago. I believe the majority if not all of the big ones have switched over. I also believe they still do a ride pass though so you dont have to pay per ride if you don't want to.

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2020

    Yeah I've had a look back at them and there's certainly blue in them just came as a surprise this morning that they were so blue. This image from earlier in the thread had blue skies and the blue is noticeable but not as clearly blue as today's pic. I dunno. In my head it was much greyer. 😂

    The supports look a lot bluer in the this picture for some reason. They've always been blue but not quite sure what's going on here and I've only just woken up...

    They have now :) An interesting oddity I just noticed. The tunnel through the hillside is interesting with the parks miniature train going into the tunnel above the path. An interesting setup.

    Chengdu Wanda City | Unknown | Taron Clone

    Some nice video shots of the ride under construction have shown up https://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDcxMjQ2NDU4OA==.html https://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDcxMjQ2NDQ1Mg==.html And no the ride isn't as well themed as Taron but as mentioned. Of course it isn't. But it does look pretty well themed...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I wouldnt usually post about such obscure small rides in China opening but thought this one was random enough to post about. This is a new Golden Horse Super Spinning Coaster (the model with the inversion) that has opened at Dalad Xiangshawan Tourist Area in Inner Mongolia. The whole area is...

    I think what he means is how in the world are we meant to know? None of us are in the construction team or work inside universal... So any answer would be a guess. I mean what do you expect to be the answer really?

    New track at the B&M plant

    Anyhow there is something odd at the Clermont Plant. These images taken in May show a lonely piece of purple track out the back. - Source It looks like it may have been damaged judging by its condition but it's hard to tell. This piece was here in February as seen below and it's not known what...
