Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

Yes its not a tilt as such. Imagine the furthest end of the track staying in one place and just one end of it dropping to meet another piece of track.

Make more sense? There isnt room for the traditional Vekoma Tilting thing, this will have the new track, trains and features

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

To be quite honest 99% of what i know, and has been mentioned in this topic i could of gained and supported from 3 sources: 1. And the most official is the plans we have online!

Depends how you conduct yourself and on the person i imagine, if you know they behave improperly assault you or whatever, the first thing i would say to do is get witnesses and phone the police. Then they can request to go through there CCTV etc and arrest the guy (as it usually is a guy) if theyve ...

Riot on Blade? Find that hard to believe as it doesnt have people assisting to load the ride, ever!?

Re: Spinball Whizzer touch up

For me it should be removed and relocated to Cloud Cuckoo Land and named after some sort of Cloud Creator or Cloud Catcher (this also joins in with the last line from the CATCF lift "If we can capture these clouds and turn them into candy floss") So it would go in coaster corner, and have ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

The only thing i can see this being is a custom Vekoma with track type like used on Expedition Everest, the heights are similar, the train length is similar.
