    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    It’s still there, it’s at the bottom of the two corkscrew elements. I think only one section of track was painted (probably a tester?!) and they’ve done nothing with it since.

    I went yesterday. Obviously nothing of note happening. I took a panoramic shot of the full thing - tried to upload it on here but apparently in 2021, 5.8mb is a shockingly large file size?! Anyway I sent it to RCDB who’ve put it on their site if you were interested -...

    I think culture change in a place with seasonal staff can be more of an efficient process than in most places but there never seems to be a desire for culture change. Quite happy with piss poor operations.

    What other hobbies do you have?

    Love football (or soccer) to the Americans. Middlesbrough FC for my sins. Also taken up a bit of gardening growing my own veg this year. Been a decent starter year with courgettes, tomatoes, carrots but going to ramp it up next year.

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    It’s hard to tell really. Probably now. I visited Alton Towers in May 2019 and stayed in their enchanted village. The visit was predominantly for the kids though I got on Th13teen with the eldest. I visited flamingo land on Halloween last year but again it was for the kids and didn’t actually...

    Park map has been updated confirming 2021 opening for this coaster. The park map also has the coaster in grey (as per planning permission) with Union Jacks on the trains... I know maps are usually illustrative purposes only etc but colours and stuff are usually accurate... Can’t be bothered...

    Quimera accident, La Feria Chapultepec closure, Montana Russa removal, etc.

    Careful what you say before a certain cretin wades in off his own site telling you you are NOT QUALIFIED TO MAKE SUCH SUGGESTIONS! When I used to stay at Flamingo Land when I was younger I remember speaking to the operations chap about how regularly they needed to replace/repair the wheels on...

    They changed the original question. The whole project is costing that (not just the coaster) so construction, groundwork etc but still doesn’t add up.

    I have heard from my original source the Malaysian park still haven’t paid Hopi Hari the full balance for the coaster and there is a bit of legal contention going on regarding who actually owns the coaster(!) I’m assuming this bypasses Flamingo Land and it’s between the other two parks to...

    Please tell me it’s A? Odd competition question to be honest

    ^ it’s apparently a Peter Rabbit VR ride. That was the initial plan as far as I know however given age recommendations for using VR and the age demographic of Peter Rabbit they may have logically had a rethink.

    Is this definitely the Hopi Hari one then? No chance of it being new from Intamin, do they still make these? I don’t know. Flamingo Land haven’t bought second hand coasters for years. Runaway mine train was the only exception in the last twenty years and that’s not exactly a signature coaster?

    I don’t think the entrance plaza was ever part of Metropolis. For me, metropolis came about because they were getting a rollercoaster with motorbikes and didn’t take it much further. I mentioned earlier in the thread I would defend Flamingo Land on most things but theming has always been very...

    ... and when you are ‘turd’ you may as well just accept it and never try and improve yourself, right?! I *almost* forgot how rude the ‘community’ can be... almost.

    Listen, anyone who knows me knows I will back Flamingo Land despite its faults however, when their maintenance (specifically long term) is called into question I won’t be in their corner defending them that’s for sure!

    Probably something pirate related if they’re going to keep up with the pirate plaza and it runs right into it? Is there any reason Velocity wouldn’t be on this plan? Every other rollercoaster is there but Velocity is omitted, is it just for clarity...

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    Back in my proper goon days I seem to recall a seatbelt that fastens to the restraint being an additional requirement enforced by safety regulations or was I lead up the garden path on that one? I found out Daily Mail had purchased the pics by the way by reading on twitter. Need to...

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    And Daily Mail are bigger scum for purchasing them! Glad to hear the injuries aren’t life threatening but things really need to be looked at for this coaster.

    ^ which they completely ignored with cliffhanger anyway and cladded the whole tower, not to mention it being in a slightly different place to originally planned too haha.
