Re: Universal Orlando Resort

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DZyZSB-UQAEVpZV.jpg Here is the image from that tweet. Having a look at those supports kills the rumours of a Mack Suspended ride like Arthur/Dragon Gliders, which is a shame as I think universal could have made a great ride using that system but oh well. The supports do...

Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

DPR received 2.3 million visitors last year, had initially counted on welcoming 6.7 million in 2017, but failure to achieve those targets has prompted the company to cut ticket prices, reduce costs and focus on the local market to drive growth. But the resort does not plan to cut costs further even ...

Hong Kong Disneyland's castle transformation has apparently been pushed back from 2019 to 2020, the Ant-Man ride from 2018 to 2019 and completion of the Frozen themed land has been pushed back from 2020 to 2021.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Maybe to allow extra space?

On another note, I had a ride on Smiler last Tuesday, it was quite rough in places, has it always been like that or have I just got lucky on my previous rides?

Re: SW9

I'm kinda hoping for a Multi-Launch Intamin Blitz coaster (Taron/Cheetah Hunt). As Icon is about to open, people are going to be saying Icons better due to its quick layout and 2 launches. An Intamin Blitz is different enough from a Mack Launched coaster, while still being similar (e.g. with twisty ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Despite me being at the park today, I wasn't fortunate enough to get a ride on it. But wow, I must say it looks amazing and now I have a season pass so I can hopefully ride it soon!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Looking at the weather forecast for the park tomorrow, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the ride has a soft opening tomorrow. Which I hope it does :)

4 Random Finds in the Mountains

Hey all, so recently I did a trip with my family to Jebel Hafeet, which is located on the boarder of the UAE and Oman. Its the 2nd highest mountain in the country at 4098ft, the name translates to 'empty mountain' and has a single long very scary road to the top, during the journey I noticed a few t...

Re: Six Flags Dubai

Just a quickie, I was also told that the park will have a record breaking flat ride, the tallest Gerstlauer Sky Roller. However this was a few months ago, so plans may have changed.

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

I'm mixed on this, on the one hand I guess we'll get some good theming around the queue and stuff, but what about on the ride? Is it gonna be pitch black with a few sound effects and a mannequin walker on a block run? I hope not. Also I'm guessing they are going to have a scare zone exit. I also rea...

Here’s another update, I can also say the following:

- The main entrance coaster will be a Mack Hyper
- Due to budget cuts the park has been made smaller
- No RMC Goliath unfortunately, instead a GCI
- Maurer Spinning coaster is also present
