  1. Is this true? Because it's a lot more than I expected and it looks like more than other similar sized trains weigh Does anyone know how much B&M flying coaster trains weigh? Those are supposed to be pretty heavy
  2. Out of the ones I've been to, I´d say Cedar Point, Hershey Park and SFGAdv (the latter has added quite a few rides since I went there, so even better). I also quite liked the lineup of Busch Gardens Williamsburg and I imagine SF Magic Mountain is pretty good to (although I haven't been there). Out of the ones I've to in Europe (which typically have fewer coaster per park), I'll say Portaventura (if you include Ferrari Land) because you get an awesome old-shcool B&M, the tallest B&M hyper out there, a great (although this is a matter of taste) intamin accelerator coaster and an in
  3. I remember hearing in a video that the empty trains nemesis (alton towers) weighed around 10 000kg. I actually went to check this now and I found 9500. That would be around 1.2 tons (metric) or 1.3 imperial
  4. If you count those, it was an Alpine coaster near Gruyères, Switzerland If not, Mystic at Walibi Rhône-Alpes. I found it a great little coaster. It's pretty compact but packs a punch.
  5. Seems weird with all the swinging pendulum models out there on the market, that the park brought one of the few that has a counterweight to do the full 360 and not run it that way. The only time I went there it did go 360, but that was a few years ago. I personally prefer the standard "counterweightless" pendulum rides as they feel more natural. But it sure is strange if this one is o longer doing the full 360.
  6. I do mostly agree with you. While I don't mind a slow jojo roll to get things started or a faster heartline roll that still gives you negative Gs, I'm definitely not a fan of hangtime in more "traditional" inversions like loops and corkscrews. I remember once riding dragon khan at night and being upside down in its huge loop while still on my seat really felt cool because it almost made it seem like everything else was upside down and not me. That feel goes away when you clearly feel yourself hanging. Whether its tight loops that throw you over the top with great Gs or massive B&M loops wh
  7. That actually looks reasonably steep for a B&M hyper of that height. Curious to see how it turns out
  8. Plus it's a bit of a gimmick. Saying that a coaster has a triple launch sounds a lot more impressive than just a launch. Great, that's what I was hoping for
  9. Agree. I'm not a fan of these "triple launches". I mean, it's fun to be launched backwards but they usually end up being quite forceless. I also prefer a single intense launch. I honestly completely missed this coaster being built but it looks really great. How are the restraints?
  10. It's really quite ridiculous how fast this parks is expanding. It sure may have its problems but this is pretty remarkable. It's also funny how I went less than two weeks ago and, while I did see some construction work behind the fences, I totally had no idea how massive it was.
  11. Hyperion at Energylandia Not the smoothest ride but I really enjoyed it.
  12. Wow, okay.... Thanks for the explanation. That does indeed look like a mess. And it doesn’t make any sense to have a fixed number of single riders per train. Anyway, we’ll see how it goes. I’m expecting to make a report when I come back home and I’ll let you know how the experience was.
  13. Thanks for all the advice. ^ That's kind of funny but also a bit worrying Indeed I have not heard many great things about the place (except for the main coasters). Oh yes, I had already seen a video somewhere about this very issue. Must be pretty bad I'm not sure I understand... What do you mean?
  14. Hey there, me and a friend are going to the park next Sunday (last day of the season). Does anyone have any particular advice for visiting the place? Also, how is their locker policy? Do they have bins on the stations?
