What is wrong with you lot? seriously?
People are both allowed to be excited or disappointed about this coaster.
Other peoples opinions aren't wrong. They are opinions.
Healthy and constructive discussions about rides like this are great and what keep this/any community going. This for the...
Can't see the 3 woodies being relocated from Indiana. Hurricane and Cornwall would have to move together really as they share quite a bit of structure. And with Lost Coaster the mountains a big part of that ride. Sad times.
Island Of Adventure
Busch Gardens Willamsburg
Universal Studios Singapore
Six Fiesta Texas
Thats a rough 5 mins list but all these parks were excellent. For me Disney Sea stands a country mile above the rest. I also agree Motiongate...
I certainly havent been to that that many SF parks, SFMM, SFFT, SFoG, SFA and SFGAdv but SFFT is by far and away IMO the best of those. Location alone puts FT above the others not to mention the best Floorless in the world.
SFA was the worst and for me SFoG was dead center. Sounds like I agree...
This isnt a coaster but its one hell of a picture
It is from Bertram Mills Circus in Olympia, London during the early part of the 20th Century.
When it seems they let an actual real life bear on the dodgems (or similar ride).
How times (And Health And Safety, And Animal Rights) have changed...
I remember talking to an executive from a large European ride company about this park. And even then he said when (not if) Ankapark went under they were expecting to see a dip in European ride sales as there are so many rides here there would be enough 2nd hand rides to flood a good proportion...
Another interesting concept from Mack found in some patents.
It seems the idea is a very large swinging ship with some stepped structures on either side. The ride starts like a normal swinging ship but towards the end a large flood of water runs down the steps creating a splash down ending...
I would assume at least one of those sets of tracks is for the Fantasy Valley Wing Coaster in China you mention here since the project is underway.
For those who havent seen the concept art in the Park Construction thread here they are. Nice little custom layout.
While the coasters aren't spectacular.
If the park does close the biggest loss will really be one of the flat rides. The park is home to what I think is the oldest carousel in the world. The El Dorado Carousel which was built in 1907 in Germany before being sent to Coney Island New York in...
Heres an interesting video of an old side friction style ride running at Hidro Park in Kiev, Ukraine. This 3 track ride ran right up until 1990 before being dismantled.
Whether or not its a coaster is perhaps up for debate but it just about ticks the boxes for me. And it does actually appear on...
