What's new

Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

This was all I could get out of Flamingo Land- "The cost given is the full project cost of the ride."
So I guess the £20 million includes everything involved with the coaster (training, construction etc) but nothing else- in other words no flat rides or new enterance...

I don't buy it.
But they are probably not the only ones to have told porkies about such projects. I also don't believe the tall SLC at Fantasy Island cost £28 million. Galactica opened the same year for £12 million. Duel loading station, first B&M flying coaster, difficult area to install and deliver steel to. Fantasy Island's coaster is literally standing on a car park.
 
Remember a park like Flamingo (and fanny island) will need loans to make investments like this. Will probably be £20m after they finished paying the loan off... With interest etc.

Ok, so I haven't been able to take any more photos, but basically what has happened in this past week is pretty much just pile driving so nothing really interesting. They are really early in construction, so I don't expect track/supports to arrive for another couple of months, or any vertical construction until the park closes for the winter at the rate they seem to be going.

Most companies exaggerate the price of things. Many companies say they are investing £20million over the next five years where in reality it's more like £5million. I cannot imagine a rollercoaster from a few years ago that has not been built and sat about for a few years is going to cost £20million. I would imagine it is costing Flamingo Land probably 50% to 60% the value of it's original value as 'assets' depreciate over time. Only one way to find out is to view Flamingo Lands accounts next year to see the exact figure which will sit within the accounts as a new asset and of-course the debt increase.
