  1. [quote name='"Midgetman82"I have heard from reviews from other water slide enthusiasts that that specific slide is a little violent anyways. You hit the water in the shutdown late instead of an easy transition and deceleration. I'd rather expect someone to put up a new warning sign or something. I have been on that particular water slide plenty of times and all that is correct. The slide is very intense' date=' you hit the water really hard and at a high speed. That would help but in this case it is almost impossible to modify the slide. Therme Erding is an extremely compact indoor waterpark in which the slides are all interwined and corssing each other multiple times. This plus te fact that there is hardly any room at the end of the slide for an expension pretty much kills the idea of adjusting it. Warning signs are already all over the place when entering the slide, even sings pointing out that women should be especially carefull. Lawsuits are probalby one of the reasons why this restriction has been applied but keep in mind that, in case of an injury, there is no way to sue a waterpark in Germany for even close to as much as you could in the US. While I don't think it is necessary to ban females from the slide I can still understand why the management decided to do so.
  2. Were you guys able to figure out if Shock was supposed to get a darkride part or some theming before the launch? The way it is now looks kind of unfinished.
  3. So far I only rode the one at Gardaland but in my opinion a Winged-Coaster is nothing you want CP to waste 25 million on. I was really hoping for a Diving Machine or and Intamin Prefab.
  4. Shouldn't the question be more like "what is the least worst Eurofighter?"
  5. I think it would make sense to focus more on thrills and the amusemnt instead of the waterpark since their not too far away Holidayworld does it the other way around.
  6. From a German point of few this whole discussion just seems ridiculous!
  7. They should change the name of the ride as well since the stinger logo is pretty much the best thing you can slap on a boomerang.
  8. 15 to 20 million really does seem like not much, especially if the want to put in an adequate replacement for Chang. However, weren't there rumors that HW is supposed to get a new major ride in the not too distant future? If that was the case, they could do a package deal and get both parks a nice coaster at an affordable price. Looking forward to the park reopening!
  9. Sorry for the off topic post but I also would like to comment on the "how intense are rides in which country" issue. I can only agree with that and what Robb said since I noticed pretty much the same thing during all of my visits to the US. Here is a good example when it comes to water parks. Me and a friend have been to this awesome water park called Area47 in Austria last summer. Here is an overview picture and two videos of my favorite rides there. By the way, their diving platform ist ajustable and can go up to 88,5 feet. Non professionals are allowed to jump from up to 65 feet which is a total blast! Now Imagine rides like that at Splashin Safari or Hurricane Harbour for instance. I just could never see this kind of park and rides work in the US since the average visitor would most certainly hurt themselves and sue the carp out of who ever is running the place. In Europe on the other hand stuff like this works just fine so yes, I do think nationality has something to do with peoples fears of a ride. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1o55cSQtKA
  10. Oh I can totally see this work! Turkey's economy is booming and the Antalya area draws a lot of tourists anyway. There a tons and tons of hotels which could offer shuttle services to the park. Actually I am surprised that this hasn't been done sooner.
  11. I find it interesting that they are building a windseeker even though there is a starflyer just a little bit down the street. Does anyone else think that the Fun Spot expansion could kill Magical Midway?
  12. Wait are you saying the will remove the two slides with the two awesome pops of airtime, IMO two of the best slides I have ever been on to replace them with ordinary and lame matracers? That was the only reason for me to visit soak city while at cp.
  13. Yes! It's that time of the year again! Thanks for the awesome IAAPA coverage you always provide!
  14. And Bling is correct! It will be called Sky Jet. https://www.facebook.com/skylinepark
  15. I thought Rocket was awesome, especially after a couple of beers! If you are in the front seat of one of the rockets you are just flying and spinning through the night sky! If you like the Starflyers like I do you will probably also enjoy Rocket!
  16. Well, I never ride any flat rides in Munich because I can ride them at our local fairs here in and around Augsburg at a lower price with longer ride cycles. Therefore I only do the big coasters. You actually can get a beer outside of the tents. For example at the Beergardens most of the big tents have or at the smaller bar stands.
  17. I will either go this weekend or the one after that. Not sure yet. But I agree, the prices for pretty much everything at and around Oktoberfest are ridiculously high. However M├╝nchen is Germany's most expensive city anyway.
  18. I rode it today and since my expecations were really low I was pleasantly surprised! The ride is fun but the rattle just sucks. You would think after HRRR Maurer has fixed that problem but they still seem to be unable to deliver a smooth ride experience like Mack does. The X-Cars just don't live up to what you would expect form "German engineering". Freisch├╝tz is still a good addition to the Park.
  19. I wouldn't pay extra admission for the KI water park because is lacks a couple of really good slides. CPs Soak City has at least the racing multi drop slide which may be old but still kicks ass! A bigger wave pool is still just a wave pool which most people will probably only use when they have to take a ... Kings Island really needs another major coaster, something like Ispeed, a Diving Machine, Inverter etc.
  20. I am not so sure about this. The fasttrack system at Alton Towers and Thorpe really sucks since it is expensive but not expensive enough to prevent the big crowds form buying it. Therefore the regular line suffers a lot. I hated my two (very busy) days at these Parks. Hopefully it will turn out fine for KI. Apparently the whole system works for Six Flags where it never bothered me at all.
