I wonder how much extra work it takes to work out the logistics of making something moveable? With a regular coaster you just stack track pieces in a container as they're made/needed, but a travelling ride has to stack the right pieces on the right container. Did Schwarzkopf design the trailers...
Gödel's incompleteness theorem says that's it's impossible to prove a system is complete only using the rules of the system, so we really have no way of knowing if the ability to post topics has been proven from within the forum itself :D /j /s
+1 for the castle, even just walking through the grounds is now a must on a trip to Phanny for us!
Plus, if you're feeling cheap there's a Netto on the way from the park to grab a few bits for a little picnic :D
I thought I'd pop a little POV of the new track, seeing as everybody is so thrilled and excited by the prospect of this being finished :P
It's hard to tell from the backseat POV, but it doesn't look like it's had the full Python treatment, just a like-for-like re-track. Which seems weird...
"Have you been hit by a one-horse open sleigh?
Were your reindeer injured and spooked?
Has your holly-jolly attitude been affected?
If so, you may have a valid claim. Call our 24/7 elfline on 030 1225 XMAS to speak to one of our team of dedicated claim elves about your case."
But...but...but...they said they were injured? People wouldn't just *lie* on the internet? Surely not?
Please don't shatter my innocence like this. Next you'll be trying to tell me Father Christmas/Holiday isn't real!
I can't wait for them to open their new Runaway Mine Coaster! Fingers crossed it's more like Colorado Adventure than Towers's mine train :)
I adore the attitude towards Thorpe, they could announce a raptor cover of SteVe and boards would be full of people wondering how they were going to...
Only done the one at Todtnau, near Europa Park, and I had blast!
I guess it comes down to the layout, Todtnau is fun because it's fast and has lots of turns at speed. Plus the location is gorgeous.
If it's just something plonked down then I can imagine it's not as fun or engaging!
^ I agree, they've got plenty of inversions as it is, they could do with something with either plenty of regular airtime or something twisted like Taron. Either that or something totally different like a MACK extreme spinner.
I wonder how much these prototypes cost to manufacture and construct? And who foots the bill? Did Phantasialand pay for the F.L.Y prototype, or did Vekoma "absorb" the cost to show it off to other parks?
I would be very impressed if s&s figured out inverted coasters and started selling interlocking sit-down and inverted sky rockets. Could even theme it to a trapeze act at efteling!
