  1. So this is a Gerstlauer inverted? AJ said above it's most definitely a Vekoma invert, but the layout looks similar to Gold Rush and I know Gerstlauer are building their first invert out in Japan so I guess it makes sense. Either that, or Intamin because they'll basically do anything.
  2. I like the look of this too, although the changes to Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain etc have also failed to register on my angry-o-meter too so maybe I'm just dead inside.
  3. From a European perspective, I think in the short term it is going to continue to be pretty dire, but things will hopefully improve for late spring as they did last year, helped of course by the vaccine. I'm still worried about late autumn/winter, though, as I suppose it's not out of the question for different strains to slip the net and require an updated vaccine.
  4. Yes, absolutely, I think this closure will hurt them a lot less than their closure over Christmas. With the better weather and the impact of the vaccine being felt, hopefully the situation in April should be a lot better.
  5. Disneyland Paris have pushed back their planned 13th February opening to at least the beginning of April due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in Europe: "Due to the prevailing conditions in Europe, Disneyland Paris will not reopen on the 13th of February as initially planned. If you have a booking with us during the closing period, please check our website for our latest commercial conditions. "If conditions permit, we will reopen Disneyland Paris on the 2nd of April 2021 and will welcome reservations from that date forward. Given the current context our plans continue to evolve, but please know that we will make every effort to share with you any updates as soon as it is possible. "Please check back on the website for regular updates. We thank you for your continued loyalty and understanding during this difficult period." (Source: Instagram)
  6. I think that was just the working name at the beginning of the project, I seem to remember hearing before that it was always going to change.
  7. The name is hilariously adorable and the presentation of the coaster looks stunning
  8. Super Nintendo Land, has been delayed due to the state of emergency in the Osaka prefecture. It was due to open on the 4th of February and they will decide on a new date once this has been lifted. https://www.usj.co.jp/company/company_e/2021/0114.html
  9. To be fair I totally get you, coastercoaster5, but I feel they would have already changed the name when they were trying to overcome the park's terrible reputation. The move away from the Californian theming was very much deliberate, and I think changing the name would have been a good way of underlining this, but as they didn't do this I think it'll keep the name for the foreseeable future. I feel the name is almost generic to the point it doesn't really matter.
  10. It's a difficult decision between the convenience of a pass that includes everything, or keeping both functioning kidneys. I'm thinking if/when I visit, the Express 7 with Flying Dinosaur might me my best option, then maybe try and use SRQ for everything else.
  11. Thanks for this. Can I just sanity-check this as I feel I missed out by not studying Universal Express at university, such seems to be the complexity of their system Their website doesn't seem to be up to date or even particularly good, so from what I understand, Universal Express 7 includes: Forbidden Journey Flight of the Hippogriff Mario Cart Yoshi's Adventure Minion Mayhem OR Freeze Ray Sliders Jaws OR Hollywood Dream Sing OR Backdrop OR Flying Dinosaur OR Space Fantasy Universal 4 I am less clear on. It used to include The Flying Dinosaur, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Spider-Man OR Hollywood Dream, and Jaws OR Backdraft OR Terminator. How do the new Nintendoland rides fit into this? And do you mean Spiderman is only on Universal Express 4 (and premium)? For me I always felt Universal Express 4 was the best value, but with Nintendoland I am not so sure, so it would be nice to see a list to compare them. Assuming I ever get to Japan, of course
  12. I don't think Six Flags really have much to do with this project, Qiddiya just pay them to use their name on license.
  13. Not sure they'd release a statement unless there were news stories about it, in which case it'd likely be a generic 'the coaster experienced problems while testing, no riders were involved' kind of thing. I can't imagine they'd willingly go into detail and voluntarily tell the world the wheels fell off their new rollercoaster trains.
  14. I think it's just because they are .heic files (maybe direct from your phone/camera) so when you uploaded they just appeared as attachments as they're not recognised as images. I think if you can somehow save as .jpg before uploading them they should appear in the post like normal. Thanks for posting them anyway, I appreciate it and welcome to the forum
  15. I don't understand how the detached wheel assembly ended up forward of the car it came from? But I guess all forms of logic go out the window when it comes to Premier's current POS train designs.
  16. A new tourist attraction "Fujiyama - King of Coasters Tower" Planning to open Summer 2021 will be a new 55m observation tower tucked into the turnaround on Fujiyama. Initially it was designed to help with inspections of the coaster, but now the plan is also to make it into an attraction in itself affording views of the coaster and the clouds in the distance that are probably obscuring Mount Fuji. It will feature: Observatory "Fujiyama - King of Coasters Sky Deck Skywalk "Fujiyama - King of Coasters Walk" Tube slide "Fujiyama - King of Coasters slider" Images: Fuji-Q Full details and more photos here
  17. You could be describing my first rides on Montu, too. I wrote that off as well, but then re-riding it a few years later it blew my socks off. Maybe you caught OzIris on a bad day (or bad days). It's honestly one of my favourite inverts Regarding Monster, at least even if it is like [your least favourite invert], I feel at least it has the quirky layout and near-misses to its advantage.
  18. Also don't forget as a transportable coaster, very little groundwork will be required, and the construction is likely to be very fast (and therefore cheap). I think it's more marketable than a lot of options they can afford/could have gone for.
  19. I think they look pretty cool, but I guess 'pretty cool' doesn't sound quite as good in a press pack. Overall the presentation of the coaster is a lot better than I was expecting. I didn't really expect the amount of theming we got with the paddock, the rocks and enclosed sections. I'm really looking forward to it - although coaster-wise I feel there will be better opening next year, Velocicoaster definitely seems to be the full package.
  20. I'm not sure if porn is allowed on TPR, but here are some recent photos from Walibi Belgium's Facebook page showing the new trains for their yet to be named hyper. Intamin are creating such beautiful trains at the moment. Also love the look of the wave turn in the background.
  21. I'm sure I read the Ice Breaker height restriction will be 48" - I remember they were really pushing the exact family-friendlier tone when they initially announced the coaster. On the topic of the trains, I think Premier's current rolling stock is just about the worst out there from any of the major manufacturers at the moment, especially when you compare them to Intamin and Mack's current designs. I think they're ugly, not easy to get in/out of and the comfort collars are a really stupid solution to a problem that doesn't really exist.
