    Also don't forget Intamin still offer the wing coaster Impulse design. Not quite in the same league but they still have the model for sale.

    B&M needs some competition on Wing Coaster market

    Golden Horse actually have their own model which i believe will show up at Taiyuan Zoo sometime soon. Its got some similarities with the B&M mode but uses GHs double spined track rather than the box track of a B&M.

    Weird, Wacky & Strange Coaster Bits

    Major accident on Quimera at La Feria Chapultepec

    I'd wait another year if I were you. ;) It's a good addition to the park. I'm amazed the la Feria showman managed to sell it to be honest. They also sold the other schwartzkopf too but that wasn't in a major accident recently. Now if the people who own thriller could sell that on somewhere that...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    Yeah that's a really old concept from not long after Gravity Max opened. The new model of Vekoma Tilt Coaster has a twisted drop which was actually shown off on the SF Saudi Arabia artwork. Although I don't think it's "that" twisted.

    Longest walkway to a station you have experienced?

    Between the Northern Line and the Central line at Bank is the longest walk to a station I've ever experienced. Although I feel that's not quite what you mean.

    Happy Valley Nanjing | Nanjing China | Theme Park

    I really don't get this image. It appears to be an image of the new Intamin testing that they've then super imposed over Happy Valley Shanghai for some reason. But there you go. Could even be CGI but its hard to tell. Interesting baby support in there.
