Rode the IAAPA model.. wasn't very good. The standard SBF spinner is better.
Blackpool's new hotel is looking nice!

I can't find the thread about Panic Coaster - Back Daan but the ride actually does have two trains of sixteen passengers each. Should be interesting to see how two train ops are on this ride, considering the weird station setup.
4.1m (13.5ft) tall.
234m (767.7ft) track length.
30km/h (18.6mph) max speed.
Wow. So yeah, this thing is tiny.
Could it be that the storage area has another switch with two parallel storage tracks? So they don't (/can't) ever really run two trains, but have a spare for maintenance.
First of these is going in at Shaoxing's Oriental Neverland Phase 2.
Box track can been seen on the left hand side of the first image.
Oh god I can't wait to see that thing run
Apologies if there is a post on this already but I thought It warranted it's own topic rather than in the small news section. I was jusr reading the local news paper and came across this article https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/...tabbing-at-blackpool-pleasure-beach-1-9730676
I have been the park about 5 times this year and everything within security has seemed tight (they even took 2 Alan keys I had in my wallet off me).
I'm aware this happened outside the park but such a shame we are getting all these stabbings everywhere!
Nah, could've gone in the Small News section tbh.
I agree. Merged.
An interesting video from the brand new Imagic Park in Mexico City. The park features a an indoor Wiegand Wie Flyer and appears to be pretty well themed.
I'm intrigued by that go kart track surface...
Looks like the ownership of Parques Reunidos might change:
Now, I don't think this will have much of an implication for the parks. They've always operated quite autonomously, doing their own thing as long as money flows steadily to Madrid. This news seems more about what happens to that money stream after it has reached the corporate machine, who gets to own what and so on.
Phantom manor is back, from watching a old video it seems they have updated the pre show and enhanced the whole experience.
Thankfully it still looks to be the most sinister of the Disney haunted houses.
And still miffed that I missed the opening of it
Don't get me started on the Phantom Manor refurb. The lighting and a few other minor things are better, but virtually everything else they have changed is a downgrade, especially the removal of the original score in some parts for the cheesy Haunted Mansion music.
New zamperla ride
^Two things. One, what the is that? And two, how is that supposed to load and unload everyone at once?
I guess it must be like a booster, you load one side, rotate 180º, then the other side.
Aesthetically, it looks amazing and so confusing! Simple yet very creative and eye-catching!
Easy, have two arms down and then rotate the other two down? Then start to rotate two arms and then the other two.
It looks kind of like a Hrubertz Downdraft! Also, that ride is oddly satisfying to watch with all its moving parts - just me being a geek.
This is so weird. I wonder if this can operate well in rain, or wind, or sun... Zamperla are slightly questionable. Lol.
