Re: Slammer falling to pieces?

Every weld/join is a weakness in the overall structure they are should be checked reguarly to make sure basically that it isn't falling apart, they are more than likely pinpointing weak welds that they will re-weld or re-join during maintenance. it was shutting every hour or two for the check, that...

Re: Slammer falling to pieces?

I actually live really close to Thorpe and believe that Slammer is the 3rd best Flat there, although it is true it is showing age when it really shouldn't be. but on the bright side i went for a stroll down monks walk with my other half to watch a bit of Swarm construction, and the whole of the top ...

Re: Most stupid concept you've heard for a ride

I quote a friend during a conversation about the swarm construction

"they should build a one with a jump where it comes of the track"

a genuine suggestion, to which I genuinely slapped him round the face  8)

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

I believe it was CoasterForce who questioned the ABC rep at the European rides expo and they confirmed the 4 drop towers were for the UK. A number of credible leaks from more than one source (some posted on the forum) have stated its an ABC drop tower since before the ABC press release so its fairl...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

just been on to ABC' website to get the specs of the ride in question and it requires an operating area of 7m x 8m for a ten across tower. assuming the later dimension is for the width of the ride  (with maybe a 8 seater taking up 6m across) it still requires a depth of 7m for each tower/gondol...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

The drop itself doesn't sound like it has sufficient height to provide any amazing ride sensation. I'm almost wondering if there will be some sort of projection which gives the illusion of extra height...maybe a madhouse type effect? my thought exactly. the total floor to ceiling height is 11m taki...
