If we cant have roboarm what about a Vekoma Time Warp. Its about same height that submission was and its one of those rides you try before your first looping coaster.

Re: Submission Replacement

Unfortunately AT couldn't get them due to such low throughput. New rides pull in fairly large crowds, robo arms couldn't cope. Aye agreed forget about the throughput damn AT being so popular lol They could make it in a building which also goes underground and have multiple rooms with 2 4 seater rob...

Re: What Element of a ride do you like the most?

i live in the middle east (qatar) but am from england, and my fave elements would be the barrel rolls in colossus and formulla rossas launch. those who thought stealths launch was powerful, this one feels like your face will rip off!

Re: The future of Nemesis.....

Was thinking about how kings island in the US is getting a new B&M invert, which features new wingrider style restraints, if this is a success could nemesis have these trains?

Here is what they look like

Re: The future of Nemesis.....

now like everything something has to replace it, but nemesis is a true glorious ride and will not (hopefully) be leaving us yet. but when it does leave what will be its replacement? by then we will at least be on SW12 and they will have made crazy coasters by then. but it will be never the same once...
