    Adventureland | Dragon Slayer | S&S Freespin | 2021

    I thought this would be a bog-standard model, not a smaller version.

    Adventureland | Dragon Slayer | S&S Freespin | 2021

    To remind themselves not to build a piece of **** like Dragon ever again.

    Lagoon | Primordial | unknown | 2021

    Can anyone enlighten me? What is this coaster meant to be? A mine train like Expedition Everest on a budget?

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    I thought the project from South Dakota got green lit during the pandemic.

    Walibi Belgium | Unknown | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    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.

    Lightning Rod Status

    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...

    Port Aventura / La Liga Theme Park

    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.

    Port Aventura / La Liga Theme Park

    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...

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Unknown | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    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.

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    Oh, don't worry about that. Flamingo Land will never be bothered to run 2 trains, that if they have actually bought 2.

    How many theme parks have you visited since parks reopened?

    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...

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    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...

    Six Flags Over Georgia 2021

    Those Power Splashes are not cheap. I don't know if SF is willing to spend so much money on a single park. After all, Over Texas got theirs because it'd already been bought for another park...

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    Thanks for clearing that up. It's been ages since I last went to Chessington and rode their ship. Back then it ran a great, intense ride cycle!

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    I am really confused. Why would they? Most parks don't invest in something they already have unless it's strictly necessary.
