    Hall Of Shame - Types Of Rides That Deserve To Be Inducted

    The delays with Chiapas were due to the park, not Intamin. They wanted to be able to control the levels of wetness on the ride so they could operate it year round, something which wasn’t included in the original ride brief. They had to contract Intamin to make changes to the system, some of...

    Paultons Park | Farmyard Flyer | Custom Zierer Force | 2022

    Looks like the design of a bloody roller coaster train to me. Christ knows what you guys are seeing! [emoji23]

    New roller coaster and children’s rides for Chessington

    ^ Exactly that, yes. However I’m not 100% on the time line, it may have been a 2020/21 coaster project. Although, they are likely to have changed plans from the project as they’ve got a new creative team in the park now. So it could literally be anything coaster wise now. It’ll still be a large...

    New roller coaster and children’s rides for Chessington

    This isn’t what your call a smaller plan. This coaster project actually should’ve happened sooner, but I believe it was pushed back due to the mounting issues of Rameses Revenge and Black Buccaneer reaching the end of their operational life-spans. The park have been pushing for a new roller...

    New roller coaster and children’s rides for Chessington

    Zufari is built on Greenbelt land. As will the approved Safari Lodges be. Then there’s Glamping, that’s on the green belt. There’s a lot of things at Chessington built on greenbelt land. It just means the park has to tackle planning in a different way. Hence the consultations.

    New Themed Park Coming to US

    There’s a bit of a difference here. Legoland is very much a cookie cutter type of project with most of the attractions existing in some form already. The rest, are usually projects that have been devised for other parks, but either haven’t happened yet, or are still in the works. Legoland has a...

    Chengdu Wanda City | All Speeds | Taron Clone | 2021

    ^It looks as though it’s some form of LED lighting system installed onto the spine of the track as it moves with the rides banking. I hope they can adjust the brightness and colour. It’s far too bright and far too blue. Saying that, if it can be programmed to follow the train and pulse along the...

    Has anyone suggested this is an RMC Raptor or T-Rex yet?

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021

    Yes, it is. You may not be the parks target audience, but Paulton’s is without question one of the best parks in the country. They’ve got some fab coasters, great theming, a great selection of animals and the gardens are beautiful and very well kept. I’d make a 5 hour drive down to Paultons and...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Last I heard RE: Black Mirror Labyrinth is that Netflix were having doubts about the project late into its construction and had their reservations about the project. I’d heard that it was the reason why Thorpe Park were being funny about giving maps out. At one point I’d even heard that they’d...

    Ferrari World Abu Dhabi | Mission Ferrari | Dynamic Attractions | ??!?

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    Can I just point out. This is a SBF Visa ride and not a Zamperla. Croc drop that is. The boat is by Metallbau Emmeln.

    What is going on with Thorpe park?

    The reasons behind Slammer (and Loggers) being left standing is planning. Removing the rides is costly and also makes submitting planning for those areas more tricky. If they’ve got something there that goes so many feet into the air, then there would be no reason why they couldn’t build...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    6, 8 & 10 across coasters as well as the 2 across family coasters beg to differ [emoji23][emoji6]

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Do we think this will run 4 across trains? The catwalks don’t look all too wide and I can’t imagine they’d need the capacity year round.

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Bombay Express | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    With the Freespin, they can control the level of spinning on each side of the ride vehicle by adding more magnetic fins on one side to induce more spinning.
