Forbidden Forest would be amazing.
Not sure separation would be financially viable I'm afraid. Remember the two lift hills share the same support structure, so it would be involve either taking them together, or a new lift hill support structure for the two individually. They'd probably need new PLCs as well. If it's flogged off at a very cheap price then maybe! As you say it's all about what universal decides to do with them.gavin said:^ I'd imagine they would. They're not location specific, so could "easily" be relocated somewhere with space. They'd have taken a bit of a hammering, but I'd have thought they've been well looked after seeing as it's Universal.
Would any park buy them as a pair though? I'd say it's more likely they'd get separated.
Having said all that, would Universal even bother trying to move them on? Financially, they're in an easy position to just rip them out and save themselves the hassle. They've more than got their money's worth out of them over the years.
The word is there were too many stress fractures in the track from age and repairing other portions of track. Still strange they didn't fix certain things.Everyone's saying new Hulk rides near exactly how old Hulk did... That you still get the same head bangs and jolts in the same places as before. Which means the roughness wasn't age related, but layout related.
What was the real reason behind the hulk refurbishment, I wonder? Do we actually know? I can't help think it must have been some royal pain in the arse for them to have done what they did. Some operational issue that's since been fixed. Like... Why go through all that to not even get something actually new you can market as being new? It implies they believe Hulk - as an experience - was worth saving.
Getting rid of Dragons actually makes more sense than the Hulk refurb did.
In 2009 they completely replaced the large support on the exit of the loop:I always thought Nemesis would be the first B&M to suffer, with its odd supports base.
