Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

Robocoaster are the company in charge of installing... Robocoasters. Kuka are the company who have the deal ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

Okay, my source is a call to Kuka and an article written by people reporting on the deal struck between Kuka and Universal. Your source is..? A web site which is so out of date it doesn't even mention the Universal install - their FIRST install of a tracked Robocoaster in the world? I can only repo...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

On the robo arms front... The official line is this. Universal have the rights to ALL roboarm ride technology for the next few years. However, robo arms already ordered or available in the world can still be sold and supported. So, there are still robo arms appearing, but they refurbished ones, or ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

A really exciting new ride at one of the UK parks. I've been commissioned to help design a particular drop feature. The longer the drop the more expensive it is to construct, so I'm researching the shortest distance the drop could be to create the ultimate feeling of fear UK park? Alton Towers or Ch...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

I think that may be pointing towards the whole area being re themed. That may include a new flat. Would Alton have to use a second hand Robo arm if they install any, due to the rights that universal have over them at the moment? Im definatly thinking re theme due to the worlds development used in t...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

There is no video ONLINE - However, the marketing team at the resort have 'pitched' their idea forward to the staff as part of their annual introduction. I doubt very much this movie will be based on a movie, especially not the Omen. For anyone who has been in a coma for the past year will want to ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

I know everyone keeps saying "its not a B&M" but did B&M actually announce their new ride concept which was supposed to be revealed in November 2008 for a major UK themepark? I couldn't find any information about it so I'm wondering if Merlin asked them to keep quiet about it unti...

Its a well known fact that B&M are developing a totally new ride concept which was supposed to of been launched at the trade show last November. It was to of been installed in a park somewhere in 2010. I know that could be anywhere but when you have the likes of John Wardleys imagination being p...
