Ah great!Well, here's a turn up for the books. I genuinely thought that this coaster would never run again, but it seems that Cannon Ball Express at Pleasurewood Hills is back in business!
Great news that another classic Schwarz' has been spared the scrap heap... but it does mean that I have to endure that 5 hour drive to Suffolk again. ?
My prediction is that they are going to go one step further than just removing the floor, they'll remove the seats.
Certainly not worth its own thread and has been rumoured for a while, but it's not confirmed that Condor at Walibi Holland is getting new trains for the 2021 season..
Maybe it'll make it slightly more tolerable, but it's still sad that this means the park don't have any mid-term plans to remove it
From riding it 2 & 5 years ago I don’t think it needs them - I think it’s by far the smoothest classic (old gen) Vekoma I’ve been on.Sorry if this has already been asked / mentioned, but will they ever change the trains on Xpress? I haven't ridden it, but after riding Space Mountain and Rock 'n' Roller at DLP, I think it might be useful.
According to Screamscape (posted 24/02/2020), Selva Magica in Mexico has closed 2 rides: https://www.screamscape.com/html/world_news.htm#Mexico.
This includes Tornado, a Schwarzkopf Jet Star III. What I’d like to know is if anyone knows what has / will happen to it? Is it being scrapped or sold on?
EDIT: Also, slightly older news, a few years ago, Salitre Magico, a park in Columbia, closed their Schwarzkopf Jet Star III (previously Alton Towers' Beast), also known as Tornado. Also, I'm interested in the whereabouts of the Vekoma Corkscrews that were at La Ronde, Genting and Holiday Park. Does anyone know about what's happened to these rides? Thanks everyone!
Super Manège got scrapped, as did Super Wirbel. Can't find anything about the Genting corkscrew, but it's possible it's been scrapped as well.Also, I'm interested in the whereabouts of the Vekoma Corkscrews that were at La Ronde, Genting and Holiday Park. Does anyone know about what's happened to these rides? Thanks everyone!
