Ah, those FB embed things don't work on Tapatalk for me, so I missed them.
Fair enough then. I will embed them so they can be seen by all:-
There only appears to be two trains, a red one and a yellow one, which makes sense considering it doesn't have a mid-course brake run (although there are exceptions, such as Banshee and the B&M Giga's). And I would guess 7-row trains based on the number of cars seen there, and the length of the splashdown.
B&M seem to be making 7 rows with this style of train standard across their hypers now as opposed to the v-shaped trains; Mako and the Hershey hyper have it this way, so I don't see why Music Roller Coaster wouldn't.
A couple more from Roller Coaster Masters.
Well. Its there.
Almost finished now:
Edit: the source is Roller Coaster Dream on Twitter (as usual), thanks for the reminder @smile73775smile
It's such a shame they repainted Crystal Wings yellow from that lovely dusky pink it had initially. There's far too much yellow going on at the moment there.
Hard for me to get excited by this. It'll probably be a solid ride for what it is, but unless those elements are taken at a good speed, I can't see it being much more than an intermediate-thrill style coaster.
Track now complete!
So it sounds like it is just under 50m (164 ft) tall and won't be opening until June.
It is just a small hyper coaster as Hollywood Dream the Ride does.
The estimate trial open time is the end of June.
However, if your schedule to China is before that, Hefei Sunac Park(Soaring with Dragon), Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park(Dolphin Coaster) are wiser options.
Thanks for the tips! We are staying in Beijing (initially) and doing mostly non-coaster activities so will be going to Happy Valley Beijing anyway.
I'm assuming you run the Roller Coaster Dream Twitter page? Either that or you have stolen their logo! If so thanks for all the updates on this coaster construction.
Just booked the last weekend in June (Monday off, so got a long weekend) for Beijing, so taking a bit of a gamble that this will be open by then. It'll be no huge disaster if not since I've still got three creds at that park to pick up, plus a bunch of others around the city. I'll no doubt be back in a couple of years for Universal as well.
RCD have posted a photo of the entrance sign. Looks like the full name will be Himalayan Eagle Music Roller Coaster.
No word on any testing yet as far as I'm aware.
I want to see video footage of the meetings in which these coaster names are agreed. I really do not understand.
I think it's named "Himalayan Eagle" and the definition is 'Music Roller Coaster', which makes total sense. If it is in fact called "Himalayan Eagle Music" that does not make sense but I would love to listen to the music of the Himalayan Eagle
Nope, that's the name. It's a direct translation from the Chinese. "Roller Coaster" is included in a lot of the names.
Putting it in the name helps the silly lot to understand what they're actually riding. Like the old folks who sat down on a woodie without knowing and then got talked out of it by ride staff.
Perhaps why the reason that these Asian coasters have such "bizarre" names to us English-speakers, is because the names are typically not intended for English translations. Most likely these names sound very normal to Asian parkgoers - kind of like how the coaster names of Goliath, Raven, Wild Eagle, etc. don't sound peculiar to us.
Separate names with a comma.
