    Universal Studios Beijing | 2021

    More shots of Decepticoaster taken from Gregory Hall's (Art Director for Universal Creative) LinkedIn feed. Also, a shot of 'Bumblebees Boogie', the teacup ride for the area. Which, I may add, is so ****ing cute. Link: LINKEDIN

    New Jersey | American Dream | Mega Mall/Nickelodeon Theme Park

    It's just because it's a mounted POV. If you look at any mounted POV that doesn't use stabilisation does this.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Yeah, sorry, but this is just the tits. It's incredibly themed, if not to certain people's taste, there's no denying that it's ****ing obscene and potentially, alongside Klugheim, the best themed area of any theme park in Europe. It's really that simple.

    Nigloland | Unknown | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    I'm here for it, honestly. I think it could be really fab - Krampus folklore is brilliant anyway.

    Yeah, Josh has it bang on. With a new area or ride, you want people with experience of dealing well under pressure, working efficiently and self-starters. You then move people around the park/attractions in order of progression from quietest areas to busier dependant on their ability as a staff...

    Nigloland | Unknown | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    I'd be really interested to see the type of elements this ride can actually do, and if the new track supports more versatile manoeuvres. The issue with the current Mack water coaster is that the up-stop wheels are TINY and I'm assuming that's the reason they can't really have really steep drops...

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    Yeah, those trains were Premier, though. They could be working with them again, for all we know?

    I'm not against the logo now, it's actually slightly grown on me since we first saw it. I think once it's in situ, it'll come alive and fit a little better.

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    That sounds really fun - so it's basically another Gringotts? I'm game. Key facts: Two acceleration sections forwards and backwards 360-degree rotating platform Numerous multimedia effects 60 km/h (37mph) 532 meter long The roller coaster only sees the light of day for a short time and leads...

    It's going to look utterly delicious once the fougerite sets in.

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Hagrid's has continuous loading, seven launches, a stupid amount of sensors, three switch tracks and two drop sections. It has an insane amount that could potentially go wrong with it. It's really not surprising it goes down so much.

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    You can see just why it's down so much, though. It has so many different technical elements that heighten the risk of it going down at any time - I'd love to know just how many sensors are on the ride. It's going to be in the hundreds, easily.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    To be fair, the blame kinda largely sits with the manufacturer, and you can absolutely bet that UOR are counter-claiming against them.
