    Dog :emoji_poop:. Also, it sounds like the wind should have an ASBO with it's challenging behaviour.

    "Red Force" ; "Coaster Force" - whats that all about?

    Its been 17 years since anyone named a coaster after CF. Or maybe I have that wrong.

    (Edit : I have, there was G Force wasn't there? Was thinking of CP's "force" - d'oh)

    "Challenge the wind"

    But when the weather becomes windy, the ride will be closed. So, more appropriately, "Challenge the wind and lose".

    Mystic Timbers, Mine Blower, and now Red Force. 2017 must be the year of terrible coaster names or something :p

    Here's is a screenshot from what seems to be the coaster's control panel:

    [​IMG]

    This pretty much confirms 3-train operations (ha!) for Red Farce with both load/unload position and transfer/brakes for the third train.

    Aeril view of the "park".

    And some shots from inside the park:

    Each picture makes it even clearer that this is going to be an operational nightmare. The park/area, whatever you can to call it is tiny. And what is even more worrying is the lack of shade. There are no trees or vegetation anywhere and I can already picture lots of angry guests in summer when temperature can get as high as 37-40ยบ C.

    I just noticed another thing I am peeved by- the fact that there is a mix of realistic Italian town theming, and Ultra Modern Ferrari theming right next to one another.

    uuuuuggggghhhhhhh

    I like that they are doing a viewing stand a la Top Thrill Dragster.

    I also hadn't realized there is a step-up in the track work before the brake run. Should make for a quirky transition.

    Oh, I almost forgot... The park hasn't opened yet and neighbours are already complaining about the sound the Intamin makes and have wondered if the coaster will be running until 1am (closing time for FL during summer season) LOL Little do they know their real problem will be the S&S Combo towers. Those can be heard from afar and their noise is far more irritating. Does anybody know if the Ropers have moved to Salou? xD

    I don't imagine it'll be running all that often anyway, what with the coastal winds etc...

    I'd complain too if the view from my house used to be Shambhala and now it's that thing.

    Some of the rides from the park, such as Red Farce, have been testing with people on this afternoon.

    If Red Force was not enough, the park has officially released the name for the S&S towers: Thrill Towers. Fitting name for such an exciting attraction. I bet FL executives have been struggling for months to name these towers...
