    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    I have no idea to be honest, I haven’t looked at the layout close enough. The reason I say it is because they were very “wink wink nudge nudge” when they emphasised the whole “three times the amount of blue fire”

    They heavily hinted at 3 launches for the ride when talking about the stators, which fits in with what we know.

    So it’s basically no longer a floorless train, more of a winged coaster design like Skyrush. The middle 3 seats all have a full on floor in each row.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Blackfish has had a huge lasting affect on the zoo/aquarium industry, and many people are not happy seeing orcas/dolphins in captivity/performing in shows, so I imagine the popularity has dwindled because of that. People are a lot more aware of animal welfare, and therefore zoos have to tread...

    Parque Warner Madrid | Unknown | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    Actually, I305, Formula Rossa (and Skyrush) have a different type of track to the current new gen track on these launchers. I think maybe @CrashCoaster has the right idea here if the coaster does indeed have a turntable.

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    You think that hiring a specialised high works team and crane to fit trims onto the track would be easier than changing the wheels of a coaster in the specifically designed shed it has for that very purpose? I mean let’s break down your argument into it’s two key components; you’d have to...

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    I was in the park on Wednesday and Thursday, and this is the size of the building from the park.

    SFMM | Wonder Woman Flight of Courage | RMC Raptor | 2022

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that they weren’t expecting the original raptors to plough through their layouts as quickly/viciously as they do, and have adjusted the ones built since to be a bit tamer.

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    But would it really be another dark ride? Their last new ride was a dark ride, can’t see them repeating it.

    Thorpe Park | Project Exodus | Mack Hyper Coaster? (UK's tallest coaster) | 2023/2024

    I would love to know if the companies that are building all those giant industrial mega warehouses that sit empty for ages along the motorways and can be seen for miles around have to jump through all the same hoops.

    Parque Warner Madrid | Unknown | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    Having never been to WB Madrid I have no context for this ride and layout, do any of the footer boffins know if this is a swing-launch or a taron-launch multilauncher?

    No, sadly it’ll be another misfire because it’s so short. If you look at the coasters listed on the previous page, you’ll see they all have a decent length to them.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Again though, CAD is not just used for the design phase, it’s used at every phase of construction, including working out tolerances. Their progress should be far quicker in modern times with modern technology. I think one of the problems with GH is the fact that it’s burnt bridges, rather than...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I think the problem with your argument though is looking back at the history of western manufacturing companies. CAD is a readily available resource, and has been for many years, a resource that was not available back in the premier days of companies such as Vekoma/Intamin/Arrow, or at least not...

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    I don’t think I’d look deeper into them riding the boat ride at the Mack factory to be honest. It’s been there for years, and is a more interesting thing to film that the interior of an office space, or factory floor. I think it’s more of a case of “well we’re here, let’s get the mariachi band...
