More teasers from Toverland! The first seems to have a layout on it possibly the horse-esk ride?
Fenix will only be open for the Halloween month and the Christmas vacation. After the christmas vacation it will close enough until probably something like the spring vacation.Given that Fenix is supposed to be up and running again in time for Halloween, they’re not really putting one of the flats inside that helix, are they? It’d have to go up really fast.
And I see they’re filling in parts of the lake to the north. I was wondering when I stood near that lake two weeks back wether they were going (or were able) to do anything with that area. Guess that confirms they can and will.
This looks so good! Incredible they were able to fit it in - it’ll be such a dynamic viewing experience for non-riders and those in the queue, not to mention great for those on it especially if the timing works out with a coaster train passing.Pixarus:
I just wonder what the capacity of the Sky Fly attraction is?
If I roughly make a calculation myself, I come to this:
One ride cycle takes about 2 to 3 minutes (add 1 to 2 minutes in/out per ride, so 3 to 5 minutes per cycle.
In that case, min. 12 to max. 20 cycles can take place in an hour.
That is 12 to 20 ride cycles with only 12 people per cycle = 144 to 240 people/hour.
It's a rough calculation but that's very low... Its' a very nice en beautiful expansion, except for the Sky Fly imho.
I want to see that first.What exactly is the problem here? Sky Flys may have low capacity, but they are also not crowdpleasers. Maximus' Blitz Bahn attracts 45 minute queues every day because it's a very nice middle-ground ride everybody wants to go on. A Sky Fly on the other hand has a pretty niche target audience: people who like lots of inversions. They're quite similar to Top Spins in that regard, which also almost never attract long queues.
Right now, Toverland is advertising the playground at Avalon as an official attraction, so I am glad to see these expansion plans.
