The different in aesthetic between the second and third picture is quite stark! Looks pretty great in the third picture!

Two months to get the cred - not much time for a quick trip to the other hemisphere! :D

Yes it appears Ita Park has closed down so it is almost certainly that one.

this park is being set up by the ex president of Hopi Hair who was described to me as a very dodgy man. Take that as you will haha

Looking at the aerial imagery, it appears that Ita Park was relocated some 15km Northeastern from its former location. Since the new location is much smaller than the old one was, there probably wasn't space for the Looping Star in the move?

I just spotted on rcdb that the 4 man bob that has operated at (amongst others) Alton Towers, Pleasure Island, Flamingo Land and latterly Loudoun Castle, has apparently been relocated to a currently closed park in France, listed as opening in 2020:
 
Mack have also released a new concept for an upgrade of pulsar (water coaster), however this time, the concept features a vertical loop... It looks pretty damn insane. Can be seen in the video at 6:50

Well... There was a rumour that Six Flags Magic Mountain could replace Tidal Wave/Green Lantern First Flight sites with a Powersplash or something for 2021. Maybe since the park does it big... This is what they meant aha 😂

Mack Rides today revealed at a fan convention a new dark ride/water ride concept called: The Rocking Boat. Looks quite interesting.
Am I the only one to think it could be a thing for the revamp of Piraten in Batavia ? I mean, we know Mack like to have their rides in EP (even if it's less accurate these days) but, for the park and for the manufacturer, it would be a great thing to have this new ride for Piraten, isn't it ?
