The concept art for that ride is already a step beyond London resort. It actually has a ride type and it's realistic not some vague swirly image from a lunatics dream.
They also posted some entrance art a while back.
The parallels with the video i posted in the Old Coasters thread earlier today are amazing
The Trackon the SLC helix and the track on the loop (And lift hill) on the Looper are both covered in vines
Reminds me of the famous images of Aska in Japan as well
Sad to see but at the same time...
Check out this great drone video of the abandoned Arrow/Vekoma Coaster Crazy Roller Coaster at Nanhu Park in China.
This unique ride was initially constructed by Arrow but was left incomplete when the company went bankrupt. Vekoma then stepped up to complete the ride in 1986. The ride ran for...
Americans and their strangely out of date incorrect stereotypes go together like well Americans and guns I suppose. 🤣
Britain and in-fact quite a good chunk of western Europe have better dental hygiene than the USA. What the USA leads the way on is teeth whitening and straightening which is...
That image is very odd.
But notice how the "spine" for most of that is dead straight. It almost seems they are just using a support as a makeshift spine. The kink at the top youve circled could be the next section of this support structure?
Why would you if its cheaper not to i guess...
I got bored again and bored me usually leads to something dumb.
Here is a word cloud of every single word in every single coaster name on the RCDB.
The full zoomable and scrollable image can be seen here (it was WAY too big to upload here)
I have removed the word "Unknown" from the cloud...
Vekoma struck a 45 coaster deal not that long ago. Admitedly they only delivered 21 before the pandemic banjaxed the rest but big deals do happen.
The issue i think recently for B&M has been the huge slowdown in the Chinese market. Parks are still going in but at a much slower rate and alot of...
Always love it when a park does this. Back in 2019 Gongqing Forest Park in Shanghai closed their aging Sameco loopscrew. But instead of demolishing the entire ride they incorperated part of the ride into some new gardens.
Images of the new Golden Horse LSM at Hainan's Silk Road Paradise are hard to dig up, but as some of the park is open its often possible to spot the ride in the background.
While yes it looks very B&M it does at least look pretty well shaped so far.
In some related but non Regina news.
The park has given a fresh coat of glittery paint to the trains on their Mega-Lite (Unfortunatly not to the track or supports themselves)
We now have a sparkly green and a sparkly blue train.
A shot of the construction site from a few days ago. Shows nicely what appear to be 2 side by side launches.
We can at least safetly say that while it may be an Intamin motorbike coaster it is NOT the motorbike coaster shown in the video that was posted a while back
I'm also begining to wonder...
There plenty of versions of these too. These 2 are one of the main versions you see around (There are 100s of these things all over China) but I've seen everything from a triple lift hill model (With powered lifts thank god)
To an inverted coaster version.
I fully expect these to be...
