Umm... it certainly looks different, to say the least!
I’m not crazy about a sports franchise as theming, BUT I do like any ride/land that has theming that is distinct to the park or local region. I can’t tell you how much I hate all the superhero generic blandness and all the commercial tie-ins they call theming these days. So I’m not crazy about the sports tie-in, but it’s better than most new theming these days.The ride itself looks fine to me.
I'm the way this conference has been talking and from what we know about PR I'm heavily inclined to think the Steelers Organization payed for a large chunk if not a majority of the area and ride. It's a pretty brilliant marketing idea in all honestly for both sides. Pittsburgh has diehard sports fans and tapping into that market for the park could bring in people who really wouldn't care otherwise, even if it has zero meaning or significance to anyone else.
Is this the biggest ride Parques Reunidos have ever paid for?
The way one of the q&a questions was answered (the one about the name) and based on the size and scope of the coaster I'm pretty sure the Steelers organization footed a reasonable amount of the bill for this. I can't imagine PR would pay for all of this but i don't think anything has been said on that end officially so I'm just speculating.If the Steelers Organisation are paying for it, will it work sort of like how Ducati are paying for Ducati World at Mirabilandia? Like a sort of sponsorship?
I found the answer on the now live official web page...What are they claiming to be the 4 World firsts?
I mean, RMC invented the element so that in itself is influence. The two are pretty tight from a business standpoint if I’m correct so I wouldn’t be surprised to see that cause some similarities between rides.Just because there's a stall doesn't mean it's inspired by RMC. This just looks like S&S being S&S and doing weird :emoji_poop: because they want to.
