  1. The new Gerstlauer is looking interesting. Apparently it's going to be without inversions and focused on airtime. At first there was a weird rumour going around that the park was going to extend Junker, but it is a new stand alone ride. Source
  2. Cookie monster looking down a tornado slide is absolutely hilarious!
  3. I might have to fly out to Energylandia to try this new RMC creation, it looks great and plane tickets from here is not that expensive. I have to be honest, when they opened Hyperion it did not do a lot for me. Sure the ride looks fun, but the only real great parts looks to be the first hill after the first drop and the dive-loopy thing. Other than that it looks kinda meh to be honest. This new RMC on the other hand!
  4. I remember when this happened! I would still go on it though if I had the chance.
  5. Geez, they bought a terrible ride. Just scrap it and get on with it.
  6. Great news for the park! Still cant believe all that crap actually happened when the state have lost the park once already... The new ride looks great, but I'm not really feeling the location. Seems like that corner would be reserved for expanding the water park in the future. Surely they know what they are doing, but still.
  7. Things are really starting to take shape! Definitely the project of 2019 I'm looking forward to the most.
  8. Great news, Belantis will fit extremely well into Parques Reunidos concept of running crappy parks.
  9. Now we are talking, this thing is going to look super imposing!
  10. The parks always refer to their overall investment when announcing new rides.
  11. Basically everything else. From the simplest electricians working the ride up to the parks own engineers. You must remember that buying the ride and assembling it is just one of a large number of things that cost a lot when building a ride. Having a firm build the station, a firm to prepare the ground, a firm to pour the foundations, rent of cranes etc... It all cost lot's of money. Usually the ride itself makes up around 40-50% of the value of the investment.
  12. No it is not. The ride is built in Poland where wages is 1/3 of Western Europe. Sure the rides hardware and the specialized team assembling it cost the same, but everything else about it is much cheaper.
  13. Yes, but it will be easier for the park to claim no responsibility if the guest opened their seatbelt.
  14. Once again congratulations to America! The Intamin jetski/ATV coasters are some of the absolute best family/family-thril rides in the world. Not to mention this one looks to be the most impressive one of the bunch, even though it will be hard to beat Juvelen.
  15. I still can't believe they actually went through with that insane theming of the tower! Gonna visit the original in a few days
  16. But if they really wanted the Sky Fly it could fit. Only the loading side needs a footprint. A Sky Roller can also be built with a loading platform similar to some of the Star Flyers. Only brainstorming here...
