    Happy Valley Nanjing | Nanjing China | Theme Park

    Some lovely aerial images of the construction site. Visible already are the B&M Wing Coaster, Vekoma Junior Suspended and Golden Horse Mine Train. The keen eye will also spot foundations and tunnels going in for the new mirror image Cheetah Hunt.

    Guangzhou Wanda Theme Park | Guangzhou | Theme Park

    Ive read so many similar claims from Chinese parks over the years. Always huge numbers like 400,000 in a weekend or 300,000 in a day. Which makes no sense. I do wonder if its something to do with the way the Chinese langauge breaks down numbers into sets of 4 rather than 3 and Translate...

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    Some excellent footage of the original 5 tracks (yes 5) Daidarasaurus at Expoland in Osaka during the 1970 expo. (theres also lots of cool other shots of the expo in this really long video) However for one of the most ridiculous things you will ever see jump to 19mins and 40 seconds.. Its...

    SeaWorld Orlando | Unknown | Premier Rides Custom Sky Rocket

    Thats kind of the point. As I've mentioned before. Thats exactly what this is. Its a family thrill coaster to fill the massive almost unforgiveable hole in SWO's line up. This was never meant to be a thrilling follow up to the big B&Ms. Think its a really fills the niche that SWO needed this...

    'Dreamlanding Adventure Park' planned for Mississippi 2018

    Nothing like necroing a dead topic but I had a tip last week that this project isn't dead and they are purchasing some rides right now. Which would be a turn up for the books. They seem to have a new site which suggests ground clearing has begun and they are aiming for 2021...

    Huzzah the blobs on the ESA satellite were indeed the Firestorm track arriving at the extant Vinpearl Land Phu Quoc for their new expansion. And the ride has gone vertical now :) Exciting stuff

    Six Flags Great America | Maxx Force | S&S Air Launch

    This ride is the roller coaster equivilant of going to your local pizza takeaway and ordering a 6inch personal pizza with your favourite toppings. All the good ingredients are there and sure it will be really good but you'll always know having the 18inch pizza with the stuffed crust and garlic...

    Fantawild Park 2 | Ningbo China | Theme Park

    Seems the original post (above) from RCD was a bit off as they have new pics of the track at the Ningbo park and its very much not bright red. But more a rusty reddy brown colour. Interesting choice. The red track I assume was off to another FW park as they have bought a crap ton of Vekoma...

    New B&M model incoming?

    B&M could easily put their own spin on the water coaster perhaps something similar to the Intamin launched water coaster concept below. However as people have pointed out it could be almost anything at the moment. Surf just suggests water involved in some capacity even though Intamins own Surf...
