  1. I get why enthusiasts make jokes about rides like these or Cedar Point's Pipe Scream that but since my son started riding things I've been a lot more forgiving on the naming. He sees it's called a coaster and that makes him think he's rode a roller-coaster then who am I to correct him. Nah, I'm totally kidding. I'm an enthusiast and obviously correcting people on this takes priority. He rode one of those powered double helix coasters at Seoul Land and was happy to have rode his first roller-coaster. I sat him on my knee and gave him a 15 minute lecture on why it didn't count as a '
  2. France has ordered all non essential businesses to close so today will be the last day the park is open before it closes down for the second time. They're taking reservations for a potential reopening during the winter holiday rush and then it seems no matter what the Corona situation is will close for a month after the New Year holiday.
  3. They had around 7 million pass holders in the previous year. I can't believe they lost almost half their memberships and season-pass holders. I expected some people would opt out, but with how cheap they usually are and the parks fan-base returning to the open parks I didn't expect the new number to be 3.7. 14% are paused, even if somehow they all un-pause and no one cancels that would still mean a 37% decrease.
  4. Bit of a random issue and easily worked around by using the main forum so wasn't sure if you wanted it reported but just in case... I've noticed some threads that I posted in, don't show up in the 'content I posted in' activity thread. I thought it might be the date so I changed it from last 365 days to anytime but they still don't show up. Granted the example here is Marineland so I'm probably not missing much skipping over it.
  5. ^I think Everland might be the biggest park in the world (in terms of attendance) to have closed 0 days during this whole pandemic. Followed by Lotte World with I think a grand total of 2-4 days closure.
  6. Wasn't sure where to post this but this is the most current topic for Children's Grand Park. Despite the 2014 refurbishment, lots of new rides built, and having one of Korea's newest roller-coasters, the Vekoma Family Suspended, this park has now closed down. I'm not sure when, I'd planned on checking out the park with my son and looking it up was hit by some articles claiming both money disputes between the owners and government and it seems lots of safety issues and cheap construction. https://paxnetnews.com/articles/66271 http://news.khan.co.kr/kh_news/khan_art_view.ht
  7. It seems the owners of Robot Land and Seoul Land are going to merge. Will be interesting to see if anything comes of this considering Robot Land is Korea's newest park and Seoul Land has basically remained with almost the same rides for the last 20-30 years. https://www.seoulland.co.kr/customer/news_view.asp?idx=1553&page=1
  8. Everland had another confirmed corona case in the park on the 22nd October. Like before with Everland's Starbucks the main focus is on the restaurant visit from 12:44-2:14. I wonder if the parks are required by the government to post these notices, normally the parks news section posts stay forever but all of these and Caribbean Bay's notices of Corona patients seem to get removed as soon as the park can.
  9. Something to lighten up this thread a little, someone designed a Rise of the Resistance management sim: http://willby.info/projects/rise_of_the_resistance_js.php
  10. Sorry if this is too off-topic but this TPR video got me interested. What happened to this ride? Is it SBNO? Or did it get scrapped? It's a shame there was never another of such a unique ride or that it didn't get relocated.
  11. I can't remember where, but wasn't there mention that S&S Free-Spins could have different experiences on each side depending on where the magnets are placed? I wonder if they could split the queue lines so the people on the right side of the track hit different magnets than the left side do to give different experiences. Perhaps even an intense side and a less spin heavy side?
  12. So we were at a Korean park last week. Even before corona the parks tend to shut half the rides or operate them on half day shifts on off peak weekdays. I bring this up because the lines I'm talking about here aren't a handful of people, I took my son to a park on Friday and because less rides run, we waited maybe 30-40 minutes for some children's rides in cattle pens. The park has footprints painted in the lines but people just didn't social distance or follow the stickers in any of the lines, you were packed in for 20-40 minutes. And although everyone wore masks people were const
  13. Everland had a confirmed corona patient visit their park. There's a little bit of a worry since the post location mentions Starbucks where people would have been maskless when drinking and it was during a 3 day weekend so the park was very crowded.
  14. Thanks, for your hard work. Some of the links were still broken but I think it's for a certain time period. We were originally planning to go to Gyeongju World so I checked that one out and the 3 new rides Draken, Klake and Dragon Race were broken although probably not heading that way anymore because my son decided he really wants Seoul Land now because he saw it on YouTube. Tried some random parks elsewhere and all seems good. I think only other random one I spotted as an example was Hyperion at Energylandia. Also, while I was looking at Gyeongju World I noticed this was listed undernea
