    Fårup Sommerland 2022

    I hadn't really looked at this park for quids some time. They have a surprisingly nice little spread of rides. No standouts but it's pretty varied. Their lineup already sort of rules out a lot of potential rides. I'd say their existing launched coaster doesn't rule out a more thrilling ride but...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    Still not going to happen. But another fairly major player has objected to the park with HS1 coming out against the current plan. https://www.newcivilengineer.com/latest/london-theme-park-would-require-major-upgrade-at-kings-cross-st-pancras-station-hs1-claims-06-05-2021/

    The Sameco built air launched loop screw goes on the first class catsgory along with vertigo and twist coaster Robin. Built at Happy City in Heze, China the ride appears never to have opened to the public and was eventually quietly removed.

    What happened to the demand for thrilling inverted coasters?

    Haha I didn't mean to suggest they were. More that the BSA dueling dragons look awful and nobody should care about them 😂 If I'm being really pedantic (and I'm afraid I am) there was another invert built outside of China in 2020. https://rcdb.com/18227.htm It is a bit of an odd trend. There...

    What happened to the demand for thrilling inverted coasters?

    As are on the Chinese side of things the Intamin invert at Sunac Guangzhou (I assume) and the 2 BSA Dueling Dragons coasters at Fuhua Amusement Park and Oriental Never Land. But no one cares about those :p But on topic I can't really say why they've gone out of fashion so much. It almost feels...

    New Themed Park Coming to US

    This could be interesting if it gets off the ground. But with any large park project I will believe it when ground breaking happens and even then I won't believe it much. There's been countless projects in the 20 plus years I've been following this industry that have sounded great and then never...

    Vertical Lift Coaster At Vekoma Factory.

    The motorbike was known about from the start though? one we knew most about as in it was half set up at the park before it was abandoned. There was a big pile of yellow track outside for a while too. Does make you wonder what happened to the rides afterwards. Scrapped I would have to assume.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Very small news for those that are nerdy enough to care :p But thanks to a list from the company the RCDB now credits every Vekoma coaster to the person at the company who designed the ride. A nice little addition. Quite interesting to look at which specific designers designed which models...

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    That's the whole layout of the triple racer. It really was just a figure of 8 design and very short. However if you look closely you can see the whole thing was mobius. The far right hand lift hill travels over the drops of the other two. The right hand track becomes the left hand track while...

    New rides @ small parks

    I'd say thanks to China loopscrews are probably the most numerous thrill coaster model built year on year to this day. I'd have to do some research but there's a number of manafacturers in China who build variations of the model and almost every new small to mid sized park in the country gets...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    It makes me sad someone posted this before I could try and convince as many people as possible that this was the B&M Surf Coaster prototype. :p
