    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    I really wish they could have kept that last inversion!

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    They sure do, but as I said it is not designed to be aggressive.

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    Those are nothing but guidance wheels to keep the load on the other two wheels. If you look at every Mack water coaster you can see that the track is banked/shaped everywhere to avoid putting stress on those wheels. It is simply not built to pursue any aggressive manoeuvring.

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    It's a water coaster, it could literally fly off the track/derail if it was too aggressive.

    Djurs Sommerland | Unknown | Mack Powered Coaster | 2022

    I refuse to believe that they would add a simple powered coaster... It's Djurs, they got to have a thing or two up their sleeve. Or maybe they will replace it with something similar to it's predecessor, the boat ride. In other words the focus of the ride will be much more about the coasters...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    There is a plant in Italy who have done track work for them. Can't remember the name of it, but I believe they have manufactured some of the dive coaster track. But that must have been at least 10 years ago now.

    Parques Reunidos has acquired Belantis

    Huracan is one of the worst coasters I've ridden in my life. It looks awesome but in some strange way it just beat the **** out of us. Good to see something happen to it.

    Is there a difference in cost between manufacturers?

    Re: Atractiepark Slagharen to Build a New Coaster in 2017 It's actually pretty hard for a company to break into existing market that is new for the company, just ask anybody with experience in this field. I'm sure Skoda could build an equivalent to an Audi R8 with the same sex appeal, but that...

    Is there a difference in cost between manufacturers?

    Re: Atractiepark Slagharen to Build a New Coaster in 2017 Always going by the fact is always key. Enthusiasts have a strong tendency to throw out whatever they feel like as a given fact and then feel insanely offended when questioned. Let's remember the original argument, shall we. The...

    Is there a difference in cost between manufacturers?

    Re: Atractiepark Slagharen to Build a New Coaster in 2017 That is just stupid. Just really, really stupid. B&M are specialized in their own ride systems and it works very well for them. As I said earlier what keeps the price up is the way they build their rides. There is no magic here, other...

    Is there a difference in cost between manufacturers?

    I've merged some posts to avoid derailing the other discussion. Unfortnuatley, they've now been sorted by post date, so Chris' original post has gone missing. I can't work out how to rearrange them at the moment, so for the time being here's the content of Chris' message: And now on to...

    Attractiepark Slagharen | Goldrush | Gerstlauer Infinity

    Re: Atractiepark Slagharen to Build a New Coaster in 2017 The main problem with the iSpeed clone is that it was planned to be built on ground that currently is not park area. We don't know anything about the process for this, it may be impossible for the park to get a permission to build such a...

    Tayto Park | Viking Voyage | Interlink Super Flume

    17.5 million €, damn. That is mayor B&M money. Even 2 megalite's can be constructed with those resources!

    Universal IOA | Incredible Hulk | B&M Retrack

    So a general question, how hard have Dueling Dragons been used? Any need for something similar there as well in the future?

    Djurs Sommerland | Drage Kongen | Intamin Suspended Family Coaster

    Re: Djurs Sommerland |unknown| Intamin Suspended Family Coas Great news, I thought it would be the other way around. This will be much,much better! It will create a better look of the ride from the entrance to the park. The ride will be better integrated with the flume and also the new asian...

    Liseberg 2018 New Coaster

    I'm very skeptical, and I recommend everybody to take this with an extreme grain of salt in order to avoid disappointment. The property is huge and there is a big-a$$ old factory still standing on the property. Liseberg is also run by the city of Göteborg and the local politicians have not even...

    SeaWorld San Antonio | Wave Breaker | Intamin Family Launch

    Re: SW San Antonio | SeaWorld Rescue: The Ride | Intamin Lau Yeah, it was in that ballpark of amount. Any chance of this being a Vekoma? I've seen them marketing the jetski train for a few years now..
