    That would be the name of the area, which translates to World of Sindbad

    Are there theme parks without any season pass options?

    This question just came to my mind, maybe someone knows about a theme park where you cannot buy a season pass

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    Could be indeed, they only have a very short powered coaster, so a somewhat larger one could add something to the park. Still hope it is a bit more original or custom

    Lightning Rod Status

    I expect the friction coefficient to be the same, as it is both steel that the wheels are running on and I think they use the same kind of paint for it. I do think the IBox is stiffer and therefore less vibration will occur which will increase the speed, call it a lower practical friction or so

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

    There is a Zamperla Family Gravity Coaster located 500m away from this one in Legoland, but a cred is a cred. Luckily they get some more unique coasters as well.

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    At Mechanical Engineering I learned that it is much stiffer to have the cross supports go through the main support. The forces are then divided over two walls, with just one it might fold/buckle.

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

    I had the same, maybe because they look so white and plastic like, which they are obviously not made of.

    Nice to experience a drop track on quad!

    Movie Park Germany | Movie Park Studio Tour | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    It doesn't look like they are doing that. I also doubt if you could stick a footer to a plain concrete floor, does not sound very strong to me. Anyway, nice that there's track on site, hopefully it goes vertical soon

    Movie Park Germany | Movie Park Studio Tour | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I think they will use steel frames as supports as I don't see any footers inside. It's just plane concrete, like Van Helsing. Has Intamin done that before?

    "Sleeping Giant" Theme Park

    Parque Warner Madrid is a good example in my opinion. The last big investment in that park has been quite a long time ago.

    Holiday Park Developments

    Totally agree with you! Furthermore I think they removed a lot of trees for this Wickie Land expansion. I hope the park doesn't lose its nice forest atmosphere

    New track at the B&M plant

    Great work! Could it be that Yukon Striker was discussed with B&M before Valravn, as it has a lower "number"?

    Raptor in Gardaland and Speed of Sound (re)opened in the same year, so I wouldn't call that knocking off

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    It looks like one or two pile drivers are onside, possibly working on the foundations for the station?

    Vinpearl Thu Thiem | Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam | Theme Park It is still for sale on here, but maybe the site needs to be updated. It was added today on RCDB as being a surfrider instead of a half pipe coaster: I don't know where they have that info from.
