    A well thought out duelling boomerang such as Tweestryd would be better for sure. But regardless, the incremental approach at least improves capacity unlike we are dealing with here in the UK such as at Thorpe Park. What a disaster, complete standstill what is going on over there. I know...

    If anyone is actually interested in a roller coaster and its construction, Energylandia are premiering a behind the scenes construction update video of Aqualantis on their official YouTube channel in half an hour. Obviously in Polish but will no doubt be an interesting watch.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I can, if you are hearing impaired for example this could be quite troublesome or if you already suffer from anxiety such as agoraphobia. Not being able to see people's expressions could definitely make that worse I would have thought. I think this will definitely lead to more isolation and...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    It's disappointing to see anxiety of wearing face coverings being laughed off like this on this forum. Don't forget this will mean all the staff who work in shops have to wear them too for their entire shift. Edit: Actually there is an update on staff: Environment Secretary George Eustice told...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Quite a few reports in the media stating Hong Kong Disneyland will close again from July 15th after supposedly a surge in cases. Hong Kong has only about 30 - 40 cases per day, but that is quite recent in the last week after a period of hardly anything. Make of that what you will.

    Just noticed 2021 on RCDB. Was looking at some dates in September. It doesn't surprise me it's delayed though. The project looks massive. More work than Zadra with the underground sections and water additions.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Interesting video of what Portaventura is like with the measures in place. Mask wearing is I believe mandatory throughout the park. but also advised / mandatory in most public spaces in Spain. Posted on Loopings. For some reason only 360p but interesting watch nonetheless. Looking into...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    1987 answered the phone and said it has never heard of ventilation or air conditioning in a cable car ride in the UK.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    No more 14 day self isolation required in The Netherlands when travelling from the UK according to the FCO. Only changed yesterday.

    CANCELLED - Unfinnished Business | FINLAND |24th - 26th Jul 2020

    Finally cancelled my Finnair flights and hotel I had booked for the Thursday and Sunday. One of the hotels sounded quite good as they had to move me to another one as they are keeping a few closed (chain) and they contacted me with all the information on the phone a few weeks ago and gave me a...

    BPB are totally rocking it, it seems to me. Coaster Crazy was at Adventure Island. No masks required anywhere, not even staff wearing them. :oops: Will be curious to see his vlog in a few days.

    Rita has reopened at Alton Towers as of today. Still without 13 which I guess will stay closed as long as they can't fill the trains fully.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    No not there. Was just reading loopings about that and checking the queue times: https://www.looopings.nl/weblog/14812/Walibi-Holland-laat-meer-bezoekers-toe-ruim-twee-uur-wachten-op-achtbaanritje.html As far as I understand us Brits can't even travel to the Netherlands now without 2 week...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Zadra: 0. :eek: Meanwhile Untamed was on 120 mins today. Walibi Holland has upped capacity. There is hardly any mask wearing in The Netherlands from what I understand with it first even being illegal to wear them on roller coasters. But I believe that has been relaxed after it has been...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    What are the queues like? Hyperion looks so good. Might be more interesting than all B&Ms gigas even, for me. Just looks more intense with the snappy direction changes. I thought masks were required to be worn throughout the park, no? Seems quite a few people not doing it. Or is just advised?

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I do think we should minimise the spread and the virus clearly does affect younger people. My responses were merely to the question posed "is it dangerous". I think on average and from certain perspectives not so much for younger people mostly. Doesn't mean to say I am not minimising the spread...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I think such a comparison stat is quite heavily skewed to make it look like Covid 19 is the end of the world without considering the details. I specifically brought up the age factor because most of the deaths in other comparison categories in that particular chart will have deaths indeed in...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Not really dangerous for those who are younger than 44. Only 540 deaths in the UK up until 26th of June in that age bracket. IE it would probably be in the same region as yearly deaths from traffic in that age bracket if it continues at the current rate or decreases further, probably won't even...

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    Disneyland Paris July 2009 - Adventure Island - Southend On Sea in July 2014. So 5 years. And then another 4 years before visiting Blackpool Pleasure Beach in July 2018. Getting back to Blackpool Pleasure Beach two years ago was also 24 years since visiting the park and riding the Big One in its...
