  1. The vehicles for Spiderman and Darkastle were built by the same company : Oceaneering. They've also built the ride system for the 4D Dark Ride in Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
  2. Based on my 2010 trip in Dubai : - The best way to travel through Dubai is either the monorail (to go from Mall of the Emirates to Dubai Mall or to the airport) or the taxi, which is really cheap (approx 10€ for a 30 minutes drive) - In order to get to Aquaventure, you can either use the taxi or the monorail. The monorail offers a very nice view on the Palm and the Atlantis resort but its departing station is in the middle of nowhere. It's easy to get there with a cab but I wouldn't recommand you to use it on the way back : we spent 30 minutes to find a taxi there. If you come back from Atlantis with a taxi, don't wait the park closing otherwise the line will be extremly long ! - As for the sightseeing, I recommand you Dubai Mall (which as Noxegon said features Dubai's best coaster in Sega Republic) and Burj Khalifa. I think the firsty fountain show starts at 5pm and then it's every 30 minutes. A nice spot to enjoy it is the terrasse of the TGI Friday in Dubai Mall. You can also have a breakfast at Burj Dubai but you have to book it in advance (just ask at your hotel desk, they will arrange it for you). It is the only way to visit this incredible 7* hotel and, well, the breakfast is not bad at all . Other interesting sites are old Dubai with the souk and the Jumeirah Mosquee. - Last thing : for the luggage, just leave them in your hotel and come pick them up just before you go to the aiport.
  3. The ride will have three inversions, not four... The layout is some kind of cross over between a Looping and a Mega-Lite Coaster (à la Piraten) with, in addition to the inversions, a top hat and several airtime hills and EGF Turns.
  4. Actually, you can have the news in english. Ok the translation may be sometimes a little bit weird, but it's always better than french
  5. That's weird because Farup has already a coaster named Lynet (the powered one)
  6. In fact, it's confirmed... The ride will be 540m long and will feature a top hat, two camelbacks, two inverting elements (some king of very banked Stengel dive and a corkscrew) as well as an overbanked turn
  7. The video was made by a fan, it's nothing official
  8. Already disapointed ? Ok I have more ! - 2 Turntables, yes, but no backward drop, the little drop between the two turntables will be taken forwards - No bunny hop after the big drop Atlantica was already tame but this one, wow...And the best is : you don't get even wet
  9. I think it would be nice being the biggest GCI Coaster ever built with a world first, for example a S first drop...
  10. Ok I understand... with this system you juste dont need anti rollback, the LSM used as a launch and a security system thanks to the accumulated energy. That's clever
  11. Yes I forgot RnRC... And the new Maurer's launched coaster, which will also use LSM
  12. I'm pretty sure that the Half Pipe are LSM launched. I visited Särkänniemi two years ago and I was able to see the backstage of Half Pipe and the frame of the train. There are no metal fin under it, its permanent magnets, so it can only be LSM. Plus the LIM on coasters alwys work with two motors, not one Here are the LSM on Half Pipe and on the Ball Coaster. The same system will be also used on the new Cedar Point's coaster
