    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    If you look at the shots when it hits the brakerun , you can clearly see that it is running slower than intended. The newer Intamins usually don’t get „stuck“ on them for several seconds, but hit the drive wheels (or lowered fins) at a good timing to not slow down to a near stop. Really...

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    Do you mean the sound effect they play in the "mountain" Tarons second launch shoots you in? Or do you mean the sound while launching? Because the latter one is no sound effect, but the sound of the launch itself. You can clearly see (and hear) this at Red Force, which has no speakers on the...

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    The angle shown on Tarons Train is a cover, not the metal from the train itself. The Taron train is the new standard train from Intamin and as far as I know they only made a few changes since (the electric contacts have been changed as well as an additional cover on some screws). I can confirm...

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    The anti rollback should work noiseless on Intamins, they are using a magnetic based mechanism for decades now to keep the rollback quiet. This also reduces the wear a little bit. Hyperions anti Rollback used to be extremely loud too, but only during the earlier test runs. I think the lift might...

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    As far as I know (please note that I am neither an engineer, nor working with rollercoasters or similar equipment) the LSM technology is pretty accurate. There are plenty of sensors scattered around the launch track, which not only allow a precise location of the train, but also a speed...

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    Taron ran great for a couple of weeks, until the wheels had issues due to the summer heat. Nowadays it is a world class crowd pleaser, and a great Family-Thrill coaster, but nothing more. I‘ve been on it with someone I met in Helsinki this year, and he agreed, that Taiga is a far superior ride...

    PowerPark | Pitts Special | Gerstlauer Infinity | 2020

    What is really interesting is the huge jolt near the crest of the last twisted Airtimehill. The first valley is actually quite forceful, but as @Alessio has stated, the first element is really quite pointless. At least it has a few good airtime moments, but it's also riding quite rough.

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    The colours will fade eventually, and afterwards it will look way more consistent. Klugheim was also quite bright and colourful on opening day, but the sun has done wonders to the area. Tbh, I think the Fades Klugheim looks better than opening day. The themes EL goes for are fine, it fits...

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    As it hasn’t been posted in here: The park has ended the season prematurely due to COVID. The winter season has also been cancelled for 2020. So any hopes to be able to ride Abyssus in 2020 are gone for now. I hope they will be able to open on time in 2021.

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    A friend of mine was in the park today, and spotted some green tracks laying on-site next to the Minetrain tracks. I asked im to take some pictures tomorrow, he only spotted them from the lifthills. As far as I know, the green tracks are new, probably for the next expansion (or maybe together...
