New custom B&M flyer for Chinese park

Wed Nov 25, 2009 1:01 pm

RCDB has an interesting new entry for a custom B&M flyer for a brand new Chinese park. It seems like these huge Chinese parks are being built at a crazy rate, and somehow alwyas seem to start with a world class lineup from scratch!

Anyway we don't know anything about this ride except the inversion list:-
In-Line Twist
Loop
Double Corkscrew

Firstly a double corkscrew has NEVER been done on any B&M before. Secondly, presuming that's not an error and is supposed to be "Pretzel Loop", I wonder what that'll be. Maybe a Rip, Ride and Rockit style "non-inverting loop"?

In related news Walter Bolliger has an attractive sister.

And some concept art for good measure:

Cheers to this CoasterForce thread for all the info. :)

Is that a giant version of Tatlin's Tower I see?

I don't know if it's just me but I find it hard to get excited by these new huge parks that are seemingly popping up at a rate of one a week in places such as China and Dubai. I prefer it when parks start off from modest begginings and then grow in terms of rides, theming and atmosphere as I like seeing parks progress rather than these "out of the box" mega parks being built from nothing.

Large commercial parks are all very well, but I think that there can be such a thing as too many of them. No matter how impressive the theming and how expensive the rides, I think that I would begin to miss the history, atmosphere and nostalgia of "home grown" parks

They do though have the bonus of layout, small parks that grow huge often have terrible layouts, Europa Park is an example of this with its main street to the left of the park and no focal feature.

No doubt this'll be impounded by customs, and ripped off by Golden Horse. I'm surprised they haven't already got it on their website!
