That sounds like an @Pokemaniac type of fact. The reason why no-one cares is the same reason I regularly forget Full Throttle is even a thing.- before Taron, the world's fastest Multi-Launch coaster was Full Throttle!? What? How was this never mentioned at any point during construction, advertising or what not? I had to find out about this through a Taron documentary.
Cheaper to leave it there than get the wreckers in.- ring°racer is SBNO!? I was absolutely shocked to find out about that thanks to Theme Park Crazy. I just always assumed that it was long gone, since ring°werk changed ownership twice since it's closure and both times it was stated that the new owner wouldn't have any use for the coaster. But apparently, it's still sitting there, waiting for some miracle to happen.
Aww. I saw that one from the window of a bus once. Dead in 5 years. Grab em while you can.heres a great video showing the removal of Whale Wings at Happy Live Park in Ningbo, China.
Nice footchopper (?)Ever noticed something out of the ordinary about a coaster? Whether it's a part of a train, track, support, queue, station or some other bit of uniqueness - this is the place to post it for others to see & discuss.
I'll start it off with one of my favorite all-time supports found on Great Bear at Hersheypark. I've never seen one like it on any other coaster.
The impression I get is that in the DL version it was for zooming over the lake, and when they copied and mirrored the layout for SFA they didn't do anything about the long straight piece of track so it looks out of place.One bit that's always bothered me is the absurdly long, straight and flat track in Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags America / Darien Lake. It is bizarre in a weirdly mundane way and I can't work out why it is there.
A mountain that big in the UAE? Must be Jebel Hafeet. I went there as it's only a couple of hours from Abu Dhabi, and basically the only thing in the entire country that has any sort of elevation. My picture from about half-way up the stunning mountain road:I'm not quite sure what this is but its somewhere in the UAE. Appears to be a bobsled or slide crossed with an Alpine Coaster.
