^Lets be honest, a nearly new B&M is going to dominate the discussion. None of the other rides at FMP hold a torch to it, even if it's apparently lacklustre.

According to coastersandmore.de, Time Machine was sold to a park in Vietnam (at the moment it isn't clear to which one).

Sitdown Looping Coaster, Vietnam: Der knapp 1150 Meter lange und 45 Meter hohe B&M Looping Coaster des seit 2010 geschlossenen Hardrock Parks im amerikanischen South Carolina erhält eine zweite Chance. Die fast neuwertige Achterbahn "Led Zeppelin" - der Hardrock Park war gerade einmal ein Jahr in Betrieb - wird mitsamt vieler anderer Attraktionen in einen neuen Freizeitpark nach Vietnam umsiedeln.

They've definitely used the full GNP of Vietnam on this ;)

Well that's gone forever then. I was desperately hoping that somewhere in Europe would make the purchase and I would have been more than happy to travel to ride it, B&M loopers are fab. But now it's gone to Vietnam; no thanks. It's not that I lack the ambition, just, it's Vietnam. I can't even see Gavin putting himself out to travel to Vietnam, well, not unless there's a high userbase on Grindr anyway.

Oh well, shame.

Already been, bitch. Could easily go again though depending on where it ends up. Vietnam is actually closer to here than a lot of China.

^I don't particularly follow global politics but isn't it still a dangerous place to visit?

^Dunno.

I went about 5 or 6 years ago and had a great time. Well, in Ho Chi Minh City anyway. Hanoi was a **** ing dump. In third place behind Podgorica and Brussels for worst capital city ever.

Eurgh Brussels is so crap (except for the main square which is pretty). There's just nothing of it </3

Will get round to Vietnam one day. I'd like to do the whole hiring a bike thing and exploring some out-of-the-way places and the presence of a B&M is never going to hurt when planning future trips! Didn't know Vietnam was that dangerous. It's on the major tourist route these days.

The UK is about 20 years overdue for a 'larger' sized B&M, which is a shame since coasters like Dragon Khan, Kraken and Kumba are incredibly popular and high rated from the gp. It would be a perfect oppurtunity!
You'll be happy to know that Thorpe opened a huge B&M only a couple of years ago! You should check it out! Google "Swarm".

It's not, there's probably a bigger chance of getting raped in the A in the states, than in Vietnam.

Re: Hard Rock / Freestyle Music Park Rides for sale

I stopped by the former Freestyle Music Park/Hard Rock Park site last week to see what's going on with the coasters and found all have been removed other than a few remnants of Time Machine/Led Zeppelin: The Ride still being dismantled and packed into containers before heading to Charleston and shipped off to Vietnam (according to roomraider). Here's the video I posted on our Youtube channel as well as some photos I took with my phone camera and posted on our Facebook page.

It's a shame Led Zepplin is moving to Asia if the roumors are true, looks like a decent ride I wouldn't mind trying out.

^You know they let foreigners in to Vietnam now right?

Going back to the comments from March, don't be so basic Darren, Vietnam is fabulous, love an excuse to go back <3

^If you read my comment, I said "I", indicating that I will very unlikely get to ride this, if it went to a park in Europe or USA on the other hand it would be much easier for ME to ride.
You always come across as very rude and I'm really unsure why somebody would be rude for no reason over a roller coaster for God sake, this is why coasterforce is slowly getting worse.

Re: Hard Rock / Freestyle Music Park Rides for sale

I'm being rude to you because you're being basic.

I'm not being rude to you over a roller coaster, I'm being rude because you automatically write it off because it's going to Asia, somewhere thats the same distance as if it went to California. There's more to the World than Europe and America, and Asia deserves creds too.

People have an attitude of 'it's gone to Asia, I can't possibly go there' and that's stupid. If you want to ride it, go ride it. If you dont want to put the effort in then wind your neck in, you're not going to get every cred handed to you on a European plate.

^I used to live in Asia, it's a place I would never like to go back to in a rush, the animal cruelty, the pollution, it's horrendous, you are rude, not just about this about many things on this whole forum, your the only person who needs to wind their neck in.

Looks like the park is "turnkey", just needs the right investor to get things rolling! :)

Was this the biggest failure in the industry?
