    Death at Freizeitpark Klotten

    As far as I remember they always checked the lap bars there.

    Phantasialand | Deep In Africa Additions | 2023

    This is a public road and it's not only to the parking area. Most likely it will never be removed and the way the park handles it is pretty amazing. You don't really notice it except for the stairs.,+50321+Br%C3%BChl/

    34 people injured after two trains collide @ Legoland Germany

    Tasty German sauce! Now it's 34 injured and 2 with severe injuries. As far as I got it it was an accident near the station or darkride part of the ride. Maybe there's no real block system for that slow moving part?

    Death at Freizeitpark Klotten

    I think I remember it like that and in another rollercoaster board a User confirmed that they don't manually check the restraints. Most likely it's not required to do so. Anyway we should not start speculating about an accident here. That's the job of god awful tabloids like Bild. I'll wait for...

    Fuji-Q | Zokko | Intamin Multi-Launch Motorbike | 2023

    @i305_zack I wanted to know the same a few weeks ago. I found no sign that it might be up again. No news article or anything. I even skimmed through some japanese vlogs and didn't see it running.

    Parque Warner Madrid | Gotham City Escape | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    Maybe there's a reason to have the LSMs centered. They might be doing something like Fury and the coaster can go forwards or backwards. (neither hope nor really think this is the case)

    Parque Warner Madrid | Gotham City Escape | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    @JFranks Yeah, had Rio Bravo on that list first, as well. It's a really generic western name. But their homepage links it to an old movie of that name. So it's an IP ride :D

    Themes you want to see at parks

    I'm all in favor of gayland!

    Parque Warner Madrid | Gotham City Escape | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    Haven't visited the park by now so I might've missed something but... Stunt Fall, Coaster Express and Cataratas Salvajes are not themed to any IP. So the list already includes two coasters... I still expect an IP for the new one. Btw did you know that "Coaster-Express at Parque Warner is the...

    Park with the most extreme quality gap?

    Well Nighthawk is a pretty solid VR coaster with Crazy Bats nowadays. But if we don't look at the coasters but at the park in general I'd say Phantasialand belongs on the list. There are really top notch world class areas and then there are rather bad things like Geisterrikscha, the broken...

    Phantasialand | Deep In Africa Additions | 2023

    Didn't hear anything about that - so I'd assume it's still closed.

    Icon Park - Drop Tower Accident 24/03/2022

    The safety restraints in drop towers are redundant: there are two separate hydraulic cylinders. If the restraints are closed far enough they basically touch the seat piece between your legs so I think it's completely understandable that a seat belt is not required at that point. But there should...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I love Joris, as well. The interaction between the two sides is awesome and the small dips and turns are very nice, too. I think I like them better than Troy and Wodan. Too bad that my next visit to Efteling will be while Joris is still in refurbishment. But as it's the last two days of the...

    SFOT | Aquaman: Power Wave | Mack Power Splash | 2023

    I still have no clue how something like that even happens... Is there a meeting of executives and one speaks up: "Regarding the new attraction we just bought and started building... I think we messed up! There are already fans in the internet complaining about the capacity and that we got the...

    Walt Disney Studios Park | Avengers Assemble: Flight Force | R'n'RC retheme | 2022

    Steam Deck? Where are the exclusive games? How about we don't stick to this mediocre analogy? This thing looks like a football stadium. Nothing that'd make me think Avengers at this time. But it's not yet finished and the LEDs might help a bit... though atm I really lack the imagination to see...

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

    I don't think it'll get a bigger technical upgrade. There'd be a lot to be added for that. I assume they'll just update the software and have it be a lot more carefull with gusts of wind.

    Six Flags Saudi Arabia(?) | Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    @SimonProD Agreed. Though I want to add that 30°C can feel really different depending on the humidity. So I'd not concider that a hard line.
