    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Zamperla need to start taking a good long hard look at their cobra roll shaping. They look terrible both in the 927M and the 568M.

    Shanghai Disneyland building a “high-speed roller coaster”?

    The problem with referencing rides from the US parks is that China doesn’t have the same history and nostalgia with them. Hence Tron instead of Space Mountain, a pirate world instead of frontierland.

    Genting SkyWorlds | Malaysia | Theme Park

    It baffles me that a park that is surrounded by such beautiful landscape can look so… horrendously ugly. Not necessarily all their fault as the entire resort surrounding it is just as vile, but it’s just such a mishmash of themes with no consideration to the skylines at all. Doesn’t help they’ve...

    CWOA | Project Amazon | B&M Wing Coaster (Jumanji Land?)| 2023

    Just to clarify, I wasn’t referring to the creative team, I was referring to the people that actually make the decisions, that okay the projects, and funding amount. Sure, the creative team has constraints, but a lot of those are added by the the executives that make the decisions, that...

    CWOA | Project Amazon | B&M Wing Coaster (Jumanji Land?)| 2023

    The people that make these decisions don’t understand what makes a ride fun. I feel like the only way they’d be able to make this a fun attraction is to put it into a building and theme it like a dark ride. Turn, twist, turn, straight section, super slow helix on your side, then a slow meander...

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    This is true with the original coasters, Oblivion and G5, but all of the dives since then have used spring loaded wheels and do have 90° drops.

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    B&M arn’t trying to aim for the gimmick of World’s steepest with this, that’s not why this is interesting, it’s interesting because of airtime. They’d have done this drop shaping to produce more sustained negative G’s for longer, rather than a 0G vertical drop. Along with what looks to be an...

    Mandoria | Merkant | Gerstlauer Bob Coaster | 2021

    That was all I could think about during that video too. The ride seems.. nice? I guess. Good one for the lift hill enthusiast.

    In your opinion, what's wrong with Derren Brown's Ghost Train, and why did it fail?

    I think what Merlin fail to do with their attractions is make them anything more than a “one and done”. A good ride will either be thrilling/fun enough to ride over and over again or have an engaging storyline that can be explored multiple times (spotting new things with rerides etc). A great...

    In your opinion, what's wrong with Derren Brown's Ghost Train, and why did it fail?

    It failed because it’s sh*t. Basically. It’s not even really a ride. It’s like a flight simulator from the 90’s that doesn’t do the exciting movements of a flight simulator, leaving nothing much in terms of an actual “ride”.

    Oblivion - Misleading “Drop” Stats?

    You only have to look at Diving Machine G5 to see that there is a lot of drop still underground. There are also plenty of construction pictures of the enormous pit they dug for Oblivion:

    Can immersive ever become too immersive? Do we need to draw a line somewhere?

    You make it sound like traipsing from Harry Potter to Jurassic Park is a long arduous journey. I don’t think anyone in the history of the world has ever walked into a theme park, queued at the entrance, paid for a ticket, gotten past the turn styles, walked to a themed land and then suddenly...

    Zip World Tower | Tower Coaster | Wiegand CoasterKart | 2021

    I’m sorry.. but how on earth does this thing cost twenty five british pounds. Have I missed some reason for this to be worth that?

    WDW Magic Kingdom | Tron Lightcycle Power Run | Vekoma Motorbike Coaster | 2022

    I mean.. is there any rush to get it done? A lot of the world is still closed for travelling, and WDW has a worldwide market, most of which can’t really access it yet. Why spend more money on getting an attraction done quickly when you can spend less on construction, do it slowly, and then open...

    Plopsaland de Panne | The Ride to Happiness | Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster | 2021

    I’d imagine so, the spin inducer would put more resistance on the train, therefore slow down acceleration till the train clears it.

    Universal's Epic Universe | Orlando USA | Theme Park

    Not only that, a launch works much better narratively for a ride with a story. A ride with a lift hill means that guests spend a lot of time being able to look out at the surroundings (and therefor ruin the immersion) as they ascend a normal lift hill. This is solved with a quick acceleration...
