Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park - 23rd November 2013-5th January 2014

I'm also really looking forward to seeing how the Ice Mountain Coaster turns out, as well as Mannings' Thriller (say hai to Joseph for me, Danny!). I'm sure we'll be seeing the getup of the former (or at least parts of it) touring with James' own mouse once it gets back from the Middle East, so I'm ...

Re: Ring°Racer - Finally Open!

So why did it take so long? Put simply, the pneumatic launch system was deeply flawed (hence the initial delayed opening and reduction from 0-135mph in 2.5 seconds to 99 in 2), and then in 2009 it exploded, injuring 7 people and causing a considerable amount of damage to the buildings surrounding it.

Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park - 23rd November 2013-5th January 2014

Just a little update for those of you who don't follow the event as closely as others... The Gladiator Turbine is now confirmed as being hired by the Mannings family to be dubbed "Blizzard" for the event, thus replacing the booster of previous years. This will sit in the Alpine Adventure a...

Re: Ring°Racer - Finally Open!

Thoroughly disappointed. It was a pointlessly long straight after the launch, a bit of moderate coaster, then it's squirrel nutty! Worse, actually, because on here you'd have a shoulder restraint on you. Nothing to see, and whenn the POV ended I said "was that it?" If it takes that much m...

Ring°Racer - Finally Open!

No less than 4 years, 1 month and 28 days after it's initially proposed opening date, the Nürburgring's S&S launched coaster, Ring°Racer, officially opened to the public on the 31st of October 2013.

A POV can be found here, footage provided by the Nürburgring.

Re: Damage to rides in last nights storm

I know a few parks in the SW took various precautions. Brean, for example, ended up dismantling their booster and miami.

Re: Banshee, Kings Island - Construction Discussion

It should be interesting to experience a 'proper' large-scale dive loop on an invert. OzIris' just felt slow and gimmicky - much like the rest of it.

Re: Banshee, Kings Island - Construction Discussion

Looking along the valley towards the back of the site, this thing really is huge!

Regardless of the magnitude of minor flaws its bound to have, it's great to see another invert on the scale of Montu, Katun (<3), Pyrenees and Alpengeist, etc being built. :)
