    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Neither distancing nor masks inside: I don't understand it. You're not getting anywhere faster by not maintaining social distancing in queue lines. I heard several people say they really like social distancing in queues as they don't have anyone breathing in their neck. :rolleyes: At least in...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Don't underestimate the virus. https://public.flourish.studio/visualisation/2562261/ Long term effects of an infection with Covid-19 are not yet researched. But it seems like it can harm multiple organs and scar the lungs. So even younger shouldn't take it easy and think they're not at risk. We...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    That's just not true. Social distancing and using masks in places where it's not possible to maintain distance seem to be working quite good for stopping the virus from spreading. Well... that's not easy. There's rarely a clear singular cause of death. Especially with a virus that seriously...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    They only ever had one train. They bought a second one (the new one in the picture) to minimize downtime as this coaster is open all year. The old one will not be replaced but receive some updates. As far as I know Booster Bike can only do one train operations.

    Fatal Accident at Parc Saint Paul

    Well... it's partly like with historic cars. These are allowed to go without seatbelts (at least in Germany). Not because it's safe enough but only because they always used to. There's just a different set of rules for older tech. Nevertheless even though I love the dodgy old attractions I think...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    As far as I got it, there seems to be evidence that for some the non-specific virus defence of the body is sufficient to fight off the virus. But that'd be something you can't really enforce and that won't be enough in the grand scheme of things.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    For sure any level of immunity is better than none. Still it'd be a lot better to just prevent an infection as there just too many fatalities on the path to helpful numbers of immunity. Business as usual is not at all helpful at this time.

    PowerPark | Pitts Special | Gerstlauer Infinity

    Wow... It's been operating for less than a week... How did it happen? Was it a windy day? Was the train too light? I hope they can find an easy way to prevent this from happening regularly or this might be a huge failure!

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Well... The list of german words starting with Y is pretty short. So... no pretty sure it's not a german word. And no. Yoghurt is Joghurt in german.

    Corona Comfort | A Nostalgic 2019 Scandinavia TR | Part 3: Bakken

    Rutschebanen in Bakken is really bad with the trims but I'm afraid these are somewhat necessary. Unfortunately the system seemed static to me and just brakes the train to a value that is always safe and doesn't work in reply to the actual forces that occur under the current conditions as a...

    PowerPark | Pitts Special | Gerstlauer Infinity

    Even if you would be allowed to talk about it, you'd basically be done before you really got started... Feels rather short to me on POV.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Looks like the new elements would be blocking the hatch if it wasn't just a decoration and could actually be openend.

    Universal Studios Japan | Super Nintendo World | New land

    Well... as the 2020 Olympics are also delayed to 2021 this is still completely possible.
