    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...

    Chengdu Wanda City | Unknown | Taron Clone

    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. 😂

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2020

    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...

    Chongqing Wanda Theme Park | Chongqing | Theme Park

    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...

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    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

    I thought i'd done my geeking for that day. But apparently not 😂 The thought that there was only one piece of each blue and purple had originally occured to me as well so I checked it out this morning. The answer is possibly yes for purple and probably no for blue. looking at the images on...

    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...

    New track at the B&M plant

    Afraid that its almost certainly just track for the same ride as seen in May. First off the colour is the same which is usually a dead give away. But mainly the track has the same F9102 code on it as the previous track. While IC2-K is the identifier code for B&M I believe F9102 is an internal...

    OCT Fantasy Resort| Xiangyang China | Theme Park

    The Water part section is now open :) However this isnt a water park website so looking at the latest update with new art for the Theme Park the Wing Coaster layout has been modified. Its now facing the other way. (it appears to be almost identical but a mirror image) This image shows it quite...

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    Actually I think it's more likely he was asked not to put it up by Universal and in his role it pays to keep the big companies on side. It wouldn't be the first time it's happened either.

    Millennium Force: A Lonely Giant?

    Well we already know of one more "planned giga" that hasn't been mentioned at Six Flags Saudi Arabia. I use quotation marks around giga as in theory it's over 400ft which means it's whatever they feel like calling a 400+ft gravity coaster. And quotation marks around planned because Six Flags...

    Intamin Single Rail Coaster

    The stock model for the knock-off raptor Intamin showed to possible clients at IAAPA was a single rail racing coaster design. Having two tracks would somewhat help with the capacity issues In the case of his calculations the moving train thing just means WW is quicker at dispatch than RB. I...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Small bit of news but Happy Valley in Wuhan have painted their S&S launched coaster with some shiny new colours. Interestingly it now matches the mirrored clone in Shenzhen. Not sure if the ride will be getting a retheme but I really do like this colour scheme.
