    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    So you're not going to count coasters that move between two parks of the Six Flags chain? @rideguy70

    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    Yes, if I remember correctly the original track of Colossos had to be replaced as a whole due to the way it was constructed.

    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    But you get 2 credits! Only if you rode the relocated coaster before it moved it's not a new - third - credit. You only count the same coaster once. As @Gazza says you could go by serial number. Counting relocated coasters doesn't make any sense as you could just follow a travelling coaster to...

    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    So you count portable roller coasters as a separate count on every fair? Clones and retracking are a difficult topic for me. Clones are completely different material and might have other slight differences. But the same thing is true if you look at retracking like Python in Efteling or Eurosat...

    Tripsdrill | Hals-Über-Kopf & Volldampf | Vekoma STC & Family Boomerang Coaster

    "Hals-über-Kopf" translates to "in a hurry" or "headlong". I think it's quite fitting for an intense suspended coaster in a park that is themed around local (schwäbisch) volklore.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    But how is there report about it? If someone thinks it's important enough to tell looopings he could (and should) have shot a picture, as well. If it was an insider... 😀 We're talking about . Most likely nothing happened at all!

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    I don't know about the other accidents but a security override through engineers is something I'd hardly consider a ride malfunction

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    If you look at Hyperion* it seems to have quite a rattle after only about a year. Let's hope it's not due to the track. * I didn't get to ride it by now but this shows up in several reports.

    RES Roller Ball for Wiener Prater in 2020?

    On they are discussing that this is going to be some kind of lift that will carry the ride vehicles to the top of the track. On the now standing version every car has its own motor to get to the top and on this new version with a separate mechanism for that RES is removing some...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Go ahead. You have about 2.000 € to work with if every post of this thread was this joke 😀

    Crazy Bats VR Coaster - Phantasialand

    Temple of the Night Hawk was not the original but the cheapest "we have to fit it to our themed area" approach ever. Space Center was a lot better than "you go through an all black building".

    Accident on Disney's Skyliner Gondola

    I think that's not really comparable as Vertigo was a prototype and this is their daily business.

    Who makes the best corkscrews?

    That one doesn't even enter in a weird and uncomfortable way.

    Who makes the best corkscrews?

    Wasn't the double corkscrew only named corkscrew in the beginning? I mean... the single inversion doesn't even look like a corkscrew. I like corkscrews but with old Vekoma coasters I really find the entrance of the corkscrew element rather awkward. The banking in general is a bit strange...

    Last Cred Review

    On sunday I went to Walibi Holland with my girlfriend. I've been there in may 2017 and the only thing that changed is that they closed down the wooden coaster Robin Hood and let RMC do their thing on it. Untamed was the main reason for this trip as I heard so many good things about RMC coasters...

    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    If you want to you can basically move any tree. It just gets expensive and a bit more difficult. Looking at your old pictures the trees don't seem too big to move, at all. For about this size there is special machinery to get the trees out of the ground with some soil. But I have to admit I...

    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    I don't remember seeing any tree stump or cut down tree. I think it's not impossible the trees were saved and are going return with the new attraction. On the other hand: There were mostly deciduous trees arount the bob and the artwork of Max & Moritz contains conifers.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I saw pictures of them working with a crane on Wodan in the evening. They seem to have a replacement chain on store. Wodan should be up and running again quite soon.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Funny story: Crazy Bats / Temple of the Nighthawk / Space Center at Phantasialand was going to be named Orion back when it opened. But since there is a sex shop chain with the name Orion in Germany they decided to go with Space Center.

    Universal's Epic Universe Announced! New Orlando Resort!

    If you take the full name isn't it "Universal's Islands of Adventure"? I think this will just become "Epic Universe" and drop "Universal's" as the Islands did in everyday talk. Epic Universe sounds okay.
