Theme Park Superhero
So the next time you visit the park, hopefully sooner than later, give Kumba some love, because Screamscape has been hearing things…
Very bad things…
So ride Kumba while you still can.
That does beg the question; if Kumba is being removed, how is Scorpion, which is 13 years older and somewhat less exciting in terms of ride elements and selling points in the modern day, still operating at 42 years old? I’m not complaining, as Schwarzkopfs are getting rarer, and from a selfish personal standpoint, Scorpion is one of 3 creds at Busch that I didn’t get on my first visit, but it is an interesting thing to consider.
If the ride rides vaguely similarly to how it did before, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they imposed the higher height restriction as a result of some sort of risk assessment determining that people that small weren't able to handle the ride. Given that I, a fully-grown 18 year old of 1.77m, find Nash absolutely brutal, I can imagine that level of beating is rather a lot for a 1.2m tall child to handle.Some interesting news at Blackpool. Grand National's minimum height restriction has increased from 117cm to 132cm:
The ride has been receiving a fair amount of work this closed season, so one would assume there's a level of correlation there (even if it is just a H&S / risk assessment review)
That’s the same park in Kazakhstan with the Pulsar and Turbulence clones, FYI. Must have really gotten along with Mack.In a really strange turn of events; Mack Media / Mack Rides have licensed their dark ride Snorri Touren to another amusement park, Tetysblu in Kazakhstan.
