    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Only until mid-November, then it's a 10 day quarantine for everybody, that can be cut short to 5 if you test negative on day 5!

    You can just about see the return path in this picture, it sticks really close to the bottom of the track From this set from a few pages ago: https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=783315102497748&id=228724551290142&set=pcb.783317022497556&source=48

    Off-topic but I love the 'qty to deliver' & 'qty delivered' boxes. I know it's just boilerplate but I'd love to see the goods-in guy's face when just a tag turns up and he finally gets to put a '0' in the box!

    WTF Merlin?

    Without implying anything negative about Merlin's maintenance schedule, I do wonder how much of their maintenance is reactive Vs proactive. They seem to leave things until they give up the ghost and take a ride down, instead of replacing stuff beforehand

    WTF Merlin?

    A problem that's made worse by the lack of other ride types, there's not much else there to do except the coasters!

    B&M Surf Coaster Thread (Possibly SeaWorld Orlando 2021)

    If I'm reading the google translated application right then this application is for a stand-up restraint that allows riders to crouch and stand back up during the ride! It cites a Vekoma patent for a similar restraint that allowed riders to move up and down, left and right, and forward and...

    Probably a bit of a stupid question, but how do the leg clamps work? Is it the same as B&M flaps?

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Come on, if you're going to cherry pick a quote you could at least pick one further into the text, that actually says what you think it does. That document is from June, when the number of new cases in Norway was under 50, so the advice (for Norway) was based around that. It even says so in the...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Masks work, but only when enough people wear them. Unfortunately, people don't wear them because...reasons? They're probably talking about cases rather than deaths and hospitalisations because now we know that it can have long term effects even if you didn't have bad symptoms during infection...

    The support structure for the non-inverting cobra looks really sweet, I love pretty supports

    GCI steel track on White Lightning

    Interesting that it has no welds, and that that's a selling point. I guess welds adds a different maintenance problem that doesn't usually come with a woodie. I wonder how it's fabricated without welds? Bends, bolts, or both?

    Walibi Belgium | Unknown | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    Someone went out and used physical, actual equipment and you're still arguing using marketing figures and best-guess computer simulations? I'm sure an intamin can hit their quoted figures in the best case scenario, in the same way I'm sure every coaster ever built can hit their theoretical...

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

    How are they regulating the number of people in the area? Is it one out one in, or are they doing batches out and in?

    I wonder how the forces looked in FVD for Maverick's barrel roll? Walibi Belgium's new Intamin looks pretty sweet though, I really like the look of the cobra roll

    Wait...does this mean you guys finally get to unsticky this thread? Or do you have to wait for an official date? :P

    I wonder if they just don't put the magnets on the cars until after the pull through?

    GCI steel track on White Lightning

    They announced it at IAAPA last year: https://www.coasterforce.com/forums/threads/gci-prototype-steel-track.44007/ at fun spot no less! :)

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

    Unless Phantasialand are in cahoots with the airlines, feeding them the opening date so they can bump ticket prices? :P I'm super stoked for this whole area and think it looks amazing, however I want to open now so that it's done. Finished. Over with! There's only so much anticipation I can...

    Share it or don't, but the whole "10 likes and I'll release it" shtick is just a bit desperate. I'm genuinely really happy for you that you're able to be so close to the project, but nobody likes a showoff ;)

    Unless they were told to keep it secret. If a post hits the internet phantasia will have banned the blogger and everybody that saw the post before you can say "that wall's not finished! Surely nobody values internet points more than the chance to actually, finally, go on the flipping thing!
