Thanks for the update.
This coaster could be dumped in a car park and have not even a shed as a station and still be one of Europe's best by its looks. I genuinely think this will take the throne of best of its kind, at least in Europe.
If the launch is the source of the hours upon hours of downtime, could they just get rid of it?
I know it's far from ideal but is Lightning Rod designed to run with a traditional lift hill? I guess any park would take a more reliable coaster without a gimmick than maintaining such gimmick and...
The backlash this is getting on social media (not just enthusiasts but the GP as well) should give them a clue that this a really bad idea. I haven't read a single good opinion on this one.
Hopefully the park can still back down and cancel the project.
Spanish enthusiasts social media has been burning with the announcement.
La Liga, and football in general, is extremely popular in Spain but that doesn't mean that this investment is not raising some eyebrows, even among die-hard PA enthusiasts. In my opinion, since the flop that meant opening...
As far as I know, nope.
Just have a look at well did Gwazi in humid Florida or how well are doing the Spanish wooden coasters (with extreme heat in summer), Magnus Colossus (SBNO), Coaster Express and Stampida.
I got to go to Disneyland Paris and the Studios right before the pandemic started. That was a lucky strike!
Afterwards, just three:
- Walibi Rhône-Alpes (+2, since I had already been there some years ago)
- Europark Vias Plage
- Luna Park Cap d'Agde
Hopefully I can squeeze another quick trip...
I am sure this will have a similar capacity as Taron, so around 1200 pph, with four 4-car trains.
Taron has many blocks: station load, prelaunch, launch 1 and first half, launch 2 and second half, a couple of blocks on the brake run and station unload (so, 7 blocks).
The show scenes will act...
