    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I wonder what he's sharing? I'm not sure about a new coaster, but I'm willing to be surprised!

    No Six Flags Dubai...for now.

    Sorry for double posting, but I just found this really interesting website with very detailed info about a Six Flags Dubai proposal from the past, designed by a company named Legacy Entertainment (just as a side note, most of the art I'm referring to here is on page 1, with a little bit on page...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Any park that doesn’t already have a spinning coaster would probably be a good fit! Maybe a smaller park that wants to do something quite big could buy it?

    Worlds of Globala; my current Planet Coaster park

    I don’t tend to use it very often, but one or two of the buildings in Great Britain are blueprints that Frontier made. With this park, I sort of wanted to make it my own, and for that reason, I did sort of want to make my own things for the most part. It’s a nice suggestion, though, and I may...

    Worlds of Globala; my current Planet Coaster park

    Thanks @Nicky Borrill! I’m glad you liked it, and thank you very much for your feedback! With regard to Zodiac Palace, I admit that there are a few things that I could perhaps have done differently. In terms of audio and why Zodiac Palace doesn’t have any triggered audio for certain scenes...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I more meant that ranking it as my favourite UK water ride would probably be an uncommon opinion; I really did love it when it operated!

    Worlds of Globala; my current Planet Coaster park

    Right then, globetrotters; who's ready for some more global exploration? Because the 5th country of Worlds of Globala is now on the horizon and ready for me to show off! So, without further ado, may I give you all a very warm welcome to China: Now, China is quite a large country again, with 6...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I’ve been having a proper think about this lately, and I’ve come up with a few more for this thread: Logger’s Leap was a hugely saddening removal from Thorpe Park; I enjoyed it immensely, and I’d probably say it was my all-time favourite UK water ride. Even though I think it’s pretty impressive...

    Coasters that were built too early?

    Maybe B&M might perfect it? There have been rumours of a B&M 4D coaster being in development for years, and some have suggested that the alleged Surf Coaster opening at SeaWorld Orlando next year could have a 4D element to it! Although then again, I don’t really think 4D coasters look very...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    It would not surprise me at all if Rookburgh ends up being delayed to 2021. I get the impression there’s still quite a bit to do, and if I were the owner of Phantasialand, I wouldn’t want COVID overshadowing my huge new investment.

    Coasters that were built too early?

    This may be a bit controversial, and potentially a little too early to call, but I’m going to nominate Lightning Rod at Dollywood for this as well, because despite all the ride’s rave reviews, it’s had a lot of technical issues, and it still did for quite a few years after its debut. Time will...

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2020

    I thought so!

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2020

    So would that mean that IntraSys make most LSM launches apart from those on Intamin coasters, as I believe they use a different supplier (I could have sworn they were called something like Indrivetec?)?

    Coasters that were built too early?

    Why do you say this, out of interest? While I admit that the park could have gotten lap bars and a smoother ride had they built it a bit later, I think there’s only so much they could really have done to get the record in that space!

    Knott's Teasing Possible Pony Express Removal?

    RMC did say that they had a model in mind for in between the Raptor and the T-Rex, didn’t they? Maybe that could function as a “2-across Raptor”, if you like? As for Pony Express; very interesting! I wonder what the park wants to do with it, if anything? As people have already said, the plot of...
