    I Guess Donkeys Are Okay
  1. Here in Brazil we have Montezum and it is a superpain machine, especially in the helix and in the final turn. Besides that, the park runs it without the fifth car. One day, a guest went to the local tv with a video showing the first drop swinging. Of course, it was a hit in the news.
  2. We can see in the news a good thing: Rehnborg reiterated his comments to me again today, highlighting plans to add new attractions, shows and events. "In light of the fact that our ground lease runs through 2074 we have the necessary control of the property to pursue our long-term vision," he wrote. "In addition, we have also created enough financial flexibility to exercise our right of first refusal for the purchase of the property and that option will be considered as the land sale process moves forward." And according to the Great America's image subtitle on the news, the proposed
  3. Isn't this the 10 inversion coaster of Ankapark? Hopi Hari's rollercoaster was manufactured in 2011, not 2013, and has two trains.
  4. Hopi Hari has a new owner, which is rehabbing the entire park before the peak season. EDIT: This new owner bought from Playcenter the Turbo Drop, a S&S Tower
  5. Anyone knows whats going on revolution? And how about Goliath? Any progress?
  6. The first time I rode Gwazi was in 2008, on the lion side. It was a "ok" experience. I rode the Tiger side last year and it was very painful... Gwazi gave me a terrible headache. It's not a good attraction for BGT of course, but Central Florida would lose one more wooden coaster if it get removed. That's lead us to Coastersaurus or White Lightning.
  7. Toon Lagoon isn't an area that guests go to the park with the intention to visit. I mean, IOA has Jurassic Park, Marvel Island, Seuss and Potter - interesting areas that catch the attention of the public. Most of people remember of Jurassic Park with awesome gates and research centers, loves superheroes, liked Dr. Seuss stories when was a child or it's a big fan of Harry Potter. Popeye and his "friends" are weak characters. People goes to Ripsaw and Bluto's because they are fun (and awesome!) attractions besides they want to cool themselves in a warm day. I feel kind of sad if Middle-Earth
  8. I've been on Katapul at Hopi Hari last year. I intend to ride it again in 2013, since the rollercoaster has received a Superman theme and new mechanical parts. I'm glad to hear this things about Turbine... It's nice to see that this type of rollercoaster can be save.
  9. I think we know what the next cooking update has to be Brandy! Nice TR Joey - it seems from your pictures like half the park was a lot older and more "rustic" (I think you know what I mean!) and then there were really bright and beautifully presented parts. Have I got the wrong impression from the photos or are there parts that are significantly newer/better maintained? I'm curious... What areas of the park you guys think has a better maintenance (and are more beautiful) and what areas you guys think looks older? I'm questioning this because some fans Hopi Hari have contact with
  10. Hi Jray21, I'm a HUGE fan of Hopi Hari and I was waiting so long your trip report! I loved it! Hopi Hari was planned by International Theme Park Service, the same company that planned a defunct park here in Rio, Terra Encantada, and I think it was because of this that you found the theme of Hopi Hari so cool (They did a really nice job on both parks). Mistieri (the land with egyptian and lost continent theme) is the favorite themed area of some brazilians. What I loved in your trip: You highlighted all the points where Hopi Hari needs to improve, as the slow operations of rides and cl
  11. This is "Crazy Wagon", a HUSS Rainbow Ride located at Hopi Hari, here in Brazil. The attraction opened in 1999, and until today, works perfectly, although some 2 large periods of maintenance, when Crazy Wagon was dismounted for about 6 months. Also, TUV SUD inspects the ride every year.

  12. @CoasterCow It was recently released on Brazilian television a new version of the Looney Tunes cartoon, and in this TV program, Speedy owns a pizzeria, as shown in the picture below: http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/1618/tfr65ctmp.jpg
  13. A drop tower at Busch Gardens! (2013) "According to a report at Park Rumors, new plans filed by Busch Gardens Tampa show off a new drop tower style ride in place of the Sand Storm ride. If you look at the close-up of the diagram of the ride itself what appears at first to be a square ride pod is really an octagon, which each side holding 4 riders, for a total of 32 per cycle. f this layout holds true, this is a different layout frolm the circular carousel used by Moser on last year’s Mach Tower at the Willamsburg park, which held 30 riders. The layout also doesn’t look like anything I
