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...
Still not going to happen. But another fairly major player has objected to the park with HS1 coming out against the current plan.
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.
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.
It is a bit of an odd trend. There...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
Gravity Max... Sure its almost entirely a gimmick but damn what a gimmick.
Like someone said about Falcons Fury. I don't get the fear about rides anymore but like FF I sure did on the front row of Gravity Max. I cannot wait to see Vekomas new model arrive in the next few years.
I also remember this as a kid. Used to love the monorail.
I had no idea the dark ride was still there though and the fact it was never updated is kind of hilarious. I do hope they can update it a bit and reopen it.
Aha thanks. Thought it might be. As expected first half is just Takibisha with a modified 2nd half. The block brake and Station on the spinner are labeled round the wrong way though. Whoops.
Sorry bit off topic but it's China news 😂😂
I thought we knew this was an Intamin for a while now? Might just be assuming that?
Anyway heres some small snapshots of the ride closer up where you can see some more detail. Interestingly the blueprints of the ride seem quite a bit different to the layout shown in FD. But as always with...
