    There are images on SkyScraperCity showing them adapting Zadra’s queue, building bridges and creating shortcuts!!!! 🥳🤩🥳 Man I love how this park listens to it’s guests feedback!!! so there’s hope for normal queues on Abbysus too! (Shamelessly added to keep this post on topic 🙈)

    Exactly... No way the first launch will be triggered if the second launch isn’t cleared, and switch track reset...

    The sensors used to detect a train has cleared a top hat will be simple block sensors... Tried, tested and in use all over the world.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    Ok this is pretty easy to work out a fail safe for, I don’t understand the issue here... the worst possible outcome is a power cut just after passing the switch for the first time (however the following will apply for any circumstance in which the switch fails to engage, as multiple sensors...

    I last visited in Sept... to ride Zadra... I planned another trip for the end of April with some buddies... Honestly we planned this trip with zero expectations of riding the new coaster... I can’t believe that there is a chance we may actually ride it!

    that’s one of the vehicular access points to the ride area... If you look at the part you mentioned 90s later you can see the same thing on the left for vehicles to access from outside of the entire queue area / ride structure.

    The TV we watch...

    Ok, but your first post was pretty damning of love island. She was never even a contestant, so you can surely see why I struggled to understand how your comments r.e reality TV were even relevant to this tragedy. Whilst we’re on the subject though, with the previous tragedies, it’s more the...

    “Warming up throughout the day” - a myth?

    There’s a decent documentary on youtube about the construction of Formula Rossa. It explains how hot the wheels get on a rollercoaster and goes on to show that combined with the desert heat in that particular location they would simply melt, so they’ve installed cooling water jets.

    The TV we watch...

    How is Love Island to blame for her attempting to murder her boyfriend as he sleeps in a rage of jealousy after going through his phone? I’m sorry, it’s a tragic story, but she was a criminal with some dark issues and insecurities. If anybody should be to blame for her mental health since...

    Yeh the 3:20 is the only place I think they could add another cut through. Wonder why they never bothered... It’s such an obvious place. edit: just realised you’re implying there is one there... We couldn’t find one and we actually looked to see if there was one... Although the theming on the...

    There is a section that shortens the queue, which has always been open on my visits, but I think that’s the only one, and it’s still INSANELY long with that bit open! Edit: there is potential to add a shorter route / cut through on another part, (the back and forth on the edge of the park) but...

    The Future of Knightmare Discussion

    Don’t get me wrong, I do think it’s highly unlikely to be reused... However on a derelict park, for scrap metal, it is strange that it’s coming down so slowly.

    Basic Beginnings | ALTON TOWERS | 22nd Mar 2020

    The £10 ones are not technically valid anymore... :( the terms and conditions stated that they had to be used with the pass with which they were issued, (although we all know they don’t police this) and they haven’t issued them for years... HOWEVER there are reports of them accepting them as if...

    Big One Partial Re-Track @Pleasure Beach

    Really??? How odd, in hundreds of visits I’ve never noticed this section sat like that... I’ve obviously seen the drop and turnaround sections where the track doesn’t match the supports due to previous retracking work, but I honestly never realised this part had been reprofiled before. i...

    You know groups of six could get together and get in for £22.17 each... 1 x season pass at £58 and 5 x season pass friends and family tickets at £15 each 🙈 Would take some organising and pre purchasing... But just so you know :) Guess most of us have an merlin pass though?

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi

    Everybody (myself included) said they wouldn’t open Zadra by the first date floating around, as it left only a week or 2 for testing... We were right, it didn’t open by that date! It opened later (although granted, not a lot later, was it a week or 2?)

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    Your logic is sound, no doubt about that 👍 I’m just wondering if other, job specific, factors have meant that, for this job, this is the cheapest way... Given how tight they’re known for being. You’re probably right though, they’ve probably chosen to erect first, at greater cost, so that they...
