    It could be lots of reasons. Availability of the larger cranes from the local contractors, only now being able to open up the access routes for the largest cranes, if they built the lift it could block access for the smaller cranes for the lower level sections of track. It's normally just normal...

    Haha, yes what on earth was I looking at then? Oops!

    Suzhou Paradise Forest World | Suzhou China | Theme Park

    Wikipedia says 60mph for Maxx Force's barrel roll, so if this has a 62mph launch (from RCDB), it might not quite manage to bear it. It'll be close, either way.

    Happy Valley Nanjing | Nanjing China | Theme Park

    Looks an awful lot better than Cheetah Hunt! Far less similar than I expected, to be honest. No MCBR is curious on a ride that long though. I wonder if Intamin's block technology has improved since 2011. Maybe they can use the launches more effectively as blocks or something now?

    Moved these posts into another thread. Nothing to do with Disney. (Yes I'm not blameless, but acting now :) )

    Sea World Australia | Leviathan | Gravity Group woodie | 2020

    That's an understatement! It looks brilliant. Helped of course by the beautiful Australian weather, which looks ever so nice as I glance out over a gloomy Bristol... :p

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Yeah, I have several issues with that video. Both from Six Flags and Bybee. I'm calling buffoonery on behalf of the riders - you'd have to be willingly or complacently stupid to not get your leg locked into those restraints. Of course, doesn't excuse terrible operations, though. Sensors to...

    I guess when RMC said it needed fewer supports they hadn't quite factored in Schilke's design style... ;)

    B&M + Disney

    You're right, I suppose one installation in 13 years still counts... even if it's just a re-profiled clone... On the other hand, they haven't built a new stand-up since 1999. Yeah, that model line is discontinued. ;)

    B&M + Disney

    Okay, maybe I can't guarantee that, but let's be honest - who would buy one when Vekoma's product is cheaper and (I would argue) better?

    B&M + Disney

    I think also, B&M (as a company) are too boring. I don't mean that their rides are bad, I love B&Ms, and they make very exciting rides, but they're extremely focused on reliability. My guess is that when Disney say "we want six trains, two launches, a switch track and completely custom trains"...

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    I don't always agree with the old adage "they were made of tougher stuff back then", but then I see stuff like that and think... yeah, probably.

    I think they need a refresher on the the "Depump Vertices" button in NoLimits. :P

    What’s next for Phantasialand?

    Yes, quite right Peet. I've moved the posts across to the latest thread I could find, but do let me know if there's another one. :)
