  1. Anyone want some Taiga pictures?


    A small batch from my visit on July 30.


    (there will eventually be more in a full trip report some time down the road)



    Oh my holy sht god! How excellent and sharp shots there! Really nice new views of this beast!


    And to the train/capacity question, it is a Intamin, new ride for 2019 and it has some tech issues sometimes. They try their to best run with two trains and stopless roll but Finns as coaster riders are slow and forgetfull sometimes (Oh, i had phone, car keys and handful of coins in my pockets - thanks for asking three times still before you launched this coaster.. How 'bout a camera? Can I film a bit for my family?!)

  2. All Intamin track experts! Is there a option to park to choose those LSM track models? Like between this original intamin track and the new what have been for example on LSM Soaring With Dragon coaster on china? As I have been thinking this coaster much lately (Finally we got something big and noteable! ) I've tried to think that what would this looked with the other track style? Less supports and maybe clearer outline view maybe? Of course, this also mind blowing and super to have


    I'm just hoping they add some theming to the ride like they did with Salama in 2008 with the scenery pieces along the ride + slightly themed queue/station. As long as the theming is better than in their last coaster addition Ukko.


    Theme with Ukko? Whrere do you see it? Joke!


    But yeah. This scale of coaster and advertising at this point needs a well themeted station and surroundings.. With Kyöpelivuoren hotelli (dark ride with really good input to theme) in the neighborhood it would be a total kill to have a coaster with none of theme included. I'm hoping that next teaser will come shortly.

  4. Thank you for all the replies and support for this!


    I'm thinking Intamin as most sure manufacturer for this ride. Height will be 52 meters and "rapid-launch will achieve the 106km/h speed" I'll put my two cents for dual sequenced launch more likely than one launch. Or has Intamin made short and rapid launch coaster with LSM yet? Of course there is a chance that the train will achieve some 50-75km/h speed by its own gravity and then launch with LSM in the side of the hill side area.. Vonkaputous water coasters remains are so unnoteable at this time so my mind is on far away future already. Of course the bithciest part of this project is the footers of the Vonkaputous ! They dig them deep in the 2000-season and the work for clearing them out from the soil is a hard and long work.

  5. But all the experts now to the front.. Can we say is it Mack or Intamin and what kind of elemet this truly is? Tophat? I tried to google and rcdb for recent top hat installations of both (Intamin & Mack) and they gave me no clear answer to whom ride this could be.. Of course there's a artistic style of PR-company that it is just the "track" and none of the reality..

  6. Hello guys. It's been forever since i've last time some posted here.


    But my topic is related to ride operation videos on station of coaster/ride. I'm so keen to them right now, it is a off-season of my closest park, where i was lucky to get to work for season 2017 as a ride operator and i know for this season, that I will be there also working. But the withdrawls of working, operating and securing the rides and coaster are kicking in (still two and a half months to go) and i need to get my daily need of that thrill and enjoyment (Yes, i love my job!)


    Could this thread be a link base for youtube (or other) videos of ride operations videos? I have found A LOT of Baron 1898 B&M Dive coaster videos and they are just great, the setup, the angles of clear view of station are the best treat. Do you know and share the others?


    Of course, I've looked videos of my home park and being affraid that i found myself on those videos, but luckily, there are none to being found at this time.


    Link for my favorite Baron 1898 video:
