That transfer track into the shed is so messy, it's upsetting me.

I do like how they're finally expanding their roller coaster offering out of that one single corner of the park into other areas.

Nice picture from Instagram of the section of the STC that runs between the trees.

Just goes to show you don't have to deforest an area of a park to build a coaster*. :p

*Yes, I know why they generally do and that the access road directly beneath is a big factor here. Before someone thinks this isn't a tongue-in-cheek joke...


So these coasters are meant to be cloned, right? I remember that one was supposed to go to Tayto Park as well.


I am not 100% sure, but if I remember it correctly, Tayto park did not get the permission for the constructions due to noice concerns, and Tripsdrill took the order. As Tripsdrill is a smaller park, this project would have been huge for them - I think they received a nice discount for taking over the order from Tayto Park. If the story is correct, this is indeed the assortment meant for Tayto Park.


No, it's a new standard design that Vekoma have offered. Tayto were the first to reveal they were intending to install one for 2021 but Tripsdrill were always going to have the first installation; they just revealed it later than Tayto. I doubt Tayto Park ever placed an order as they will have been waiting to get planning permission first.
