That looks about as safe as sleeping with Katie Price without protection.

[unnecessary, irrelevant and misogynistic comparison between riding rollercoaster in question and having sexual intercourse with a sexually active woman in the public eye]

Treno Delle Miniere in Italy is another Pinfari that actually doesn't look that bad. Here's a POV and the RCDB for it too.

Crazy T-Rex Skeleton entrance ftw! :P

The theming wasn't top notch, but it looked alright for such a small park. :)

Image
Erm... maybe this was why they closed down the park? :P

That's been posted before, it's widely regarded as the greatest coaster in the world  by all enthusiasts.

So I was looking at RCDB today and I came across this...

Image
It looks pretty rusty. Probably a death trap.

Image
Just as I suspected, there's blood all around the base of the ride where people have been killed and their blood has ran off of them.

Image
And what the hell is this?! Looks like a giant plastic toy alien or something? :? Walt Disney would be doing 360's in his grave!

Image
This must be the bit where the ride does a corkscrew into the roof of a bus to finish off any riders that are still clinging onto their lives.

Image
These people aren't enjoying themselves at all.

Apparently it was made by a small company in some weird foreign country that also runs a chain of discount stores. I've no idea why anyone would want to go on it? I'll just stick with my good old, reliable Pinfari, thanks!

Some people really do amaze me! :roll:

This is next ride is Hochschaubahn and is located at Wiener Prater, the same park as the coaster that Edders has just posted above.

RCDB


No matter how slow this is or the fact that some of the theming looks weird/crap, I actually think this looks pretty... funky? :? :P And it is pretty old, so I can forgive (slightly). :D

Crap theming? If this one is in the UK, it'd be one of the best themed coasters in the country! :P

There is one at Gardaland I think the ride type is a Screaming Squirrel but I'm not sure.
