I think there's a misunderstanding here. The ride was meant to goto Berjaya as they owned the Great Mall Of China Project this was due to goto outside Beijing. This article is about the original park although about the Premier coaster. (which if you believe the rumours ended up at either Holiday Park or Lake Compounce)


The project folded and the rides sat there ever since. I suspect this is just a label from back then. I may be wrong but it would be a very weird redevelopment if Berjaya has rebought a coaster they already bought in the first place.

The ride will also need at least part of a new train manafacturered since the lead car is mounted above the gate at the factory.

Are you sure this is part of the train? This one has wheels on the inside of the track while the vertical coaster should have them on the outside. I also remember the trains having 4 across seating.

Ah you're right. Not sure why I've always assumed it's the car from this ride. Maybe the colours and the timing of its arrival.

I stand corrected.

I'd be surprised still though if Berjaya have rebought the ride. Stranger things have happened though so we shall see.

Very weird looks similar to a Hyper/Giga train

In my NL2 version of the coaster it does reach a topspead of 104 km/h so thats why the main wheels are so big in diameter.

There was indeed A Dive Pretzel coaster for the Great Mall of China, and that track is Blue.

But what no one knows that there was also an other coaster...
It was a Launched motor bike coaster (LSM launch with watercooled stators) that is the yellow track!

The motorbike was known about from the start though? one we knew most about as in it was half set up at the park before it was abandoned. There was a big pile of yellow track outside for a while too.

Does make you wonder what happened to the rides afterwards. Scrapped I would have to assume.

Ahh you have the pictures of the supports. Great! Then the mystery of the yellow track is solved now! 😁
