@Kw6sTheater sent me this:-
Start from page 18 for coaster info.
Certainly wasn't expecting this! We could be seeing another Raptor coming to the world, and it seems like we could be seeing 3 next...
So... The park has closed down.
Lol what a waste of money.
Seems there will be another Intamin 10 inversion knocking around. Drayton Manor, anyone?
I've always thought that the Zierer/Schwarzkopfs (Knightmare, Jetline and Lisebergbanan) had a weird track and lift design, and I could never figure out where the Anti-Rollbacks were placed on the lift hill. You can quite clearly hear their presence, but I can't see them.
Does anyone know where...
Looks like Intamin took inspiration from the RMC Raptor for this lapbar single rail concept. Crappy photo, but you can see the Taron-style restraints:-
With this and the new GCI steel track, RMC now have some serious competition. No wonder they were selling off that Raptor at a discount.
BGT have filed plans for a new 2021 ride, dubbed "Project Jethro". Looks like they could be getting a Screamin' Swing potentially, based on the size and shape of the proposed ride area:-
If it doesn't end up being a Screamin' Swing, what else do you think it could be?
Since there is not a designated thread for this yet, I thought I would do the honours.
Here is the schedule for the press conferences:-
What are you guys looking forward to seeing most from this year's...
Skyline Attractions has just released a video showing off their new orbit design, which depicts a top hat connected to a cutback:-
- 30ft tall.
- 297ft long.
- 71' x 51' footprint.
- 28 passengers per cycle (14 per station).
Looks better than the Horizon design, but still looks...
I'm happy to report that the Big One is recieving a partial re-track this off season, with much of the return section seeing track replacement:-
Video by Pleasure Beach Experience.
EDIT:- Seems like this is just a relatively small re-track, with just a few valleys and rough patches being...
Just came across this:-
This should be a nice development!
I'm interesting in how the water park and the dry park will interact though. Will people be riding the rides semi-naked or the water slides fully dresses? I am curious to see how they'll go about that.
Theres currently only 3 operating S&S/Arrow 4D Coasters operating currently, and there hasn't been one built since 2012.
Will we ever see another one built? They are said to be some of the most intense and popular coasters out there, so why haven't more parks purchased them? Is it down to cost...
So S&S just posted this on their Facebook:-
At first I thought it was Maxx Force, but the track after the launch in the photo looks different, so this begs the question where is it going? I'm betting a Six Flags park, but it should certainly be interesting!
I have been stuck at 333 points on CF for the longest time, I was just wondering how do I possibly get more? I mean is it just anniversary based? I don't know how I have the number of points I do but there still a good few members who have more points, it's just kind of unclear how you get...
So this could be another interesting development coming to ICON PARK (home of The Wheel and Orlando StarFlyer) on I-Drive. Initial announcement and construction update via Midway Mayhem:-
The drop tower will be manufactured by Funtime, and will likely have the same tiny lap bar as Le Donjon de...
RCDB has stated a Gerstlauer Bobsled coaster is opening at Tatzmania Löffingen (home to currently just a 2018 SBF 3-Loop spinner in terms of coasters) later this year, which is confirmed because photos of the coaster pieces have been uploaded to the site:-
Hi everyone. I thought I'd create a thread where we can speculate on what parks may be adding in the future, and what we'd like to see come to said parks, and other people's opinions on these, as to what could be a likely thing to happen. As well as other industry possibilities, such as the...
I really want to go to theme parks and wear an RMC t-shirt to troll lots of enthusiasts, but I can't find how people are able to purchase them. Are they only exclusive for people who work for the company or are they purchasable by anyone?
