Gosh does anyone think the Big Dipper needs a coat of paint because it looks very old and rotting compared to Icon and even Infusion!


It is nearly 100 years old so yeah, a repaint would be nice :P

I'm sure that I read someone saying that new paint damages the wood though.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Some great new pictures from the Coasterforce forum showing some insane near misses and snappy banking! You can really see how much Big Dipper's ride experience is going to be enhanced by Icon. https://scontent.fdsa1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t34.0-12/24824348_1165558893604097_881148173_n.jpg?oh=bb9425d64fa...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

They're are some PR images of the boats floating around now, it's interesting in that they've not got seatbelts. Does seem like they've paid attension to Drayton Manor though, higher seatbacks (looks like it's 'topple-safe' height for kids standing on a seat), meshing in the gaps and guardrails aro...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Whatever you say, as others have said above other paths seem to be ok so I will remain understandably on the fence. Is there anywhere that states the damage costs anyway? I would be interested in seeing that :-k I don't think there has been a damage cost reported, I guess it would depend on wether ...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Even so, I’d be very shocked if the majority of the 10% was down to bad weather. A good chunk maybe, but not the majority... It was the majority, but as you allude it wasn't everything. Perception issues resurfaced in California due to reduced marketing spend for example. I do have some hope for Sa...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

I’d be very shocked to see a large amount of that 10% being due to a 2 day closure. In regards to the cuts I’ve got to admit whilst I did love seaworld it was shocking to see how little was actually open! I thought merlin was bad for food outlets but on my visit none of the food locations were open...

The Smiler queue line, please just sort out The Smiler queue line. Needs improved drainage, repainting and bins need to be installed. Looked like a junk yard at Scarefest.

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Not sure you can attribute a 10% fall to the Hurricane, yes it wouldn't have helped but there's more underlying factors. I very much doubt Universal's or Dinsey's revenue will have dropped by 10%. Plus there's going to be more cost cutting so it's not exactly all rosy  You're absolutely correct, bu...

Ok, genuinely interested. I don't necessarily want to see it taken down but i want to know how people feel about The Big One. Scenario: Amanda Thompson lays out potential plans for the future. One of the points she mentions is getting the opinion of the public for the following: Should The Big One ...

https://www.ft.com/content/3c9a4f63-7ff7-3a0c-85ba-77add7c8e1c3 Seaworld has posted pretty poor results in the last quarter with revenue dropping by 10% Yeah, not exactly a surprise since more than half of the company's parks were damaged and temporarily closed by hurricanes in the same quarter.
