Yes, Will Pemble! I've followed the construction of his projects for a while now. He's a genuinely great guy with a real knack for building stuff. Love his videos.
To be fair, I think "catapult" is perhaps a fair term to use if you don't know about roller coaster terminology, and I think I was perhaps being a bit too harsh in my review earlier. I must admit I went in expecting more realism and more involvement from actual roller coaster designers, but I don't think it would be fair of me to criticise the programme when I'm not really the target audience; I think I should probably stick to theme park documentaries if I want realism!Yeah it was the usual surface-level look at roller coasters we're used to seeing on British TV tbh.
Highly unrealistic ideas that weren't challenged. Lots of silly phrasing (as you picked up on such as 'catapult' phrase).
The backwards drop idea was fair, but then Giant Inverted Boomerangs do that already, right?
Amusing to see my home park on TV and some non-enthusiasts try to design rides but it just seemed a bit of a wasted opportunity in all.
I was hoping for some No Limits action but all we got was them using some stupid program that didn't understand physics- I was having flashbacks of that ridiculous Six Flags Saudi Arabia concept!Has anyone watched the theme park episode of The Apprentice that was on BBC One tonight?
They had the concept at IAAPA in 2018 and 2019 - a scale model nonetheless. I'm sure this isn't a 'leak' per-se. I had an image from my IAAPA collection from this year, albeit without the inversions in the shot:On a YouTube comment, someone mentioned that they saw a leak for a GCI with inversions during the Apprentice’s Thorpe Park episode. First of all, is this true and secondly, where / when can it be seen (i.e. time or section)?
