    Major accident on Quimera at La Feria Chapultepec

    Careful what you say before a certain cretin wades in off his own site telling you you are NOT QUALIFIED TO MAKE SUCH SUGGESTIONS! When I used to stay at Flamingo Land when I was younger I remember speaking to the operations chap about how regularly they needed to replace/repair the wheels on...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    They changed the original question. The whole project is costing that (not just the coaster) so construction, groundwork etc but still doesn’t add up.

    I have heard from my original source the Malaysian park still haven’t paid Hopi Hari the full balance for the coaster and there is a bit of legal contention going on regarding who actually owns the coaster(!) I’m assuming this bypasses Flamingo Land and it’s between the other two parks to...

    Please tell me it’s A? Odd competition question to be honest

    ^ it’s apparently a Peter Rabbit VR ride. That was the initial plan as far as I know however given age recommendations for using VR and the age demographic of Peter Rabbit they may have logically had a rethink.

    Is this definitely the Hopi Hari one then? No chance of it being new from Intamin, do they still make these? I don’t know. Flamingo Land haven’t bought second hand coasters for years. Runaway mine train was the only exception in the last twenty years and that’s not exactly a signature coaster?

    I don’t think the entrance plaza was ever part of Metropolis. For me, metropolis came about because they were getting a rollercoaster with motorbikes and didn’t take it much further. I mentioned earlier in the thread I would defend Flamingo Land on most things but theming has always been very...

    ... and when you are ‘turd’ you may as well just accept it and never try and improve yourself, right?! I *almost* forgot how rude the ‘community’ can be... almost.

    Listen, anyone who knows me knows I will back Flamingo Land despite its faults however, when their maintenance (specifically long term) is called into question I won’t be in their corner defending them that’s for sure!

    Probably something pirate related if they’re going to keep up with the pirate plaza and it runs right into it? Is there any reason Velocity wouldn’t be on this plan? Every other rollercoaster is there but Velocity is omitted, is it just for clarity...

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    Back in my proper goon days I seem to recall a seatbelt that fastens to the restraint being an additional requirement enforced by safety regulations or was I lead up the garden path on that one? I found out Daily Mail had purchased the pics by the way by reading on twitter. Need to...

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    And Daily Mail are bigger scum for purchasing them! Glad to hear the injuries aren’t life threatening but things really need to be looked at for this coaster.

    ^ which they completely ignored with cliffhanger anyway and cladded the whole tower, not to mention it being in a slightly different place to originally planned too haha.

    ^ it’s not just the old corkscrew site it extends to where the runaway mine train and cycle monorail is too. Practically in parallel with velocity. See first few posts. Edit: just managed to see your point. It was early when I posted. So yeah the plan is for it to go more horizontal on the map...

    Again, lifted from Facebook group “Flamingo Land Nostalgia Appreciation Group”. Runaway train and cycle monorail being dismantled for removal/relocation. There is another photo of a clearing being made next to Zooom! which appears to fit Runaway Mine Trains layout. Cycle monorail has been there...
