    Not as fab as the Parrot Coaster's trains, but you can never go wrong with a dinosaur themed coaster <3

    The GCI woodie is now considered complete by VH Coasters.

    ^ Not very often you see straight bunny hills like that on a GCI coaster! I really like the look of this.

    The park is now gearing up for opening. Looks like they soft opened the giant ferris wheel for previews recently.

    Nice picture :) The B&M wing looks very majestic with its tall, (sort of) out-and-back drawn out layout. Not sure it will be that exciting to ride, although the weird roll towards the end makes me very curious about it :p

    Happy Valley seems to be doing a decent job about theming their parks. It does not looks like a parking lot with rides on top of it!

    Whilst I do generally agree, the large concrete area underneath the B&M would beg to differ!

    This, the concrete is hideous. The rest doesn't look too bad, and I'm sure most will be spruced up before opening.
    Hope they put something on the concrete though. :emoji_truck::emoji_taxi::emoji_minibus::emoji_blue_car:

    The park is now open and the coasters have names. The Wing Coaster is called Soaring Wings and the GCI is Jungle Flying Dragon.
    I'm a big fan of the look of that GCI though.

    That's some terrific landscaping underneath the GCI. It looks great!

    I also really want to know how that roll on the B&M rides... It looks strange.

    Agree with you here, the GCI standing on the hill is really impressive!

    Now eagerly waiting for those POVs on MiyaPa Masane's channel...

    The GCI reminds me of something that Mt Olympus would build - it looks great.

    Oh and that concrete under the B&M appears to be a plastic tarp. Assume it's not permentant.

    Could be a felt mat. Lets water pass, stops particles. Then they'd put a layer of bark or topsoil over it and plant a flower bed or something. I can't think of a reason to put plastic on the ground, unless there were already plants there that had to be protected.

    The pace looks good with no boring spot and the height makes the coaster quite impressive. We also have an idea about the bizarre last inversion :p Feels like a half Zero G, half inline twist to me. Wonder how RCDB is going to name it though ^^
