  1. Well, I'm thinking that Intamin a ride which starts with A and finishes with quatrax...
  2. ^Did they let you pick the tow you wanted? Have a great day, I'll be here on friday.
  3. It's a good method, but it requires more staffing (2 or 3 per attraction). At the end is the park/company who decides what kind of experience they want to give the user.
  4. I don't know why parks are not implementing what Merlin has been doing lately. In Alton Towers latest coasters (Smiler, Thirteen...), when you are towards the end of the line you pass through an "office" where they give you a wristband with a number, and they store your stuff. When you finish riding, you just give them the wristband and that's all.
  5. Today PortAventura posted a new official video update with coaster testing footage. They also said that the noise we were discussing about it's just stators and friction [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  6. There is some new green track in Batvia!! That blue-ish green seems nice
  7. Well, the only reason I could see on it leaving is to put a S&S/Intamin 2nd gen Free Spin. It would fit in the footprint, it would be cheaper to open and maintain and CGA would be satisfied.
  8. ^First, I assume you're talking about Wicked TWISTER I don't remember the other impulses in the chain, but I think that, while Wicked Twister may not be as popular as the other Intamins and cheap ride to maintain (LIM's are b*tches), it is still a great coaster that fills their line-up, and I think it's more probable that the one at Dorney (or any other that I don't remember) leaves than Wicked Twister being move to CGA.
  9. It would be weird if CP got rid of it and send it to CGA's. According to the master plan they are going to receive an impulse coaster and as Intamin seems to no longer manufacture them I'm pretty sure that it will be a relocation. Now we only need to know which of the Impulse's of the chain will bite the dust, and when it will happen.

  11. That is one kick A$$ photoshop! Bravo Still not as good as the RMC truck at Cedar Point
  12. Ehh...not for sure. Have you visited most of the CF parks? Those are good parks you mentioned, but most of the cool-factor merely suggests the big coasters they've added in recent years. If that's all it takes, we'd be more welcoming toward parking lot coasters. Wonderland is also on par with those parks, too, but the giant coaster philosophy isn't the only way to become a cool brother -- look at Knott's! I'm going to stick up for the other Cedar Fair parks. They may not be global draws, but they're generally clean and appropriate for their markets. I think some people get a mindset that parks are either adding giga coasters or knocking on death's door, with nothing in between. In this way, Cedar Point & SFMM are bad examples from which to set expectations and define what makes a good park. For example, the GCI additions to Valleyfair, CGA, WoF, & KI, as well as the Ghostrider rehab, are really good coasters -- it's ignorant to use this bastard-talk to paint a negative image of parks that are maintaining themselves and adding fun. I know you didn't say this, but it comes off as a sour grapes way of rejecting what you got because of what you didn't get for Christmas. I feel like there's an unfair sentiment of laughing off any park that doesn't have its giga coaster or RMC by now. I think you didn't catch the exaggeration and the sarcasm in all this family metaphor. In fact, I have never been to any Cedar Fair park, as I'm from Spain and I've never been outside of Europe, but I just played with the global conception people has about the other parks in the chain. I completely agree with what you said: an RMC or giga isn't necessary, but keep in mind that was a comparison game, where the generalization wasn't meant to be a real definition, just a way of making fun about what the community thinks.
  13. Apparently, a 37 year old man was injured because he had first-grade burns, although he is OK and don't even needed to go to the hospital. Another person suffered an anxiety attack.
  14. ^Yes, the tower and part of the adjacent building is where the damage is
  15. The cool brothers are Carowinds and Kings Island for sure. Kings Dominion had some relation problems with the family. The other's are kind of bastard childs.
  16. Following what the Catalan firefighter service twitter account said, the tower (which measures 16x16x82 foot) is gone and the Ferrari Experience building has damage in the isolation. Both fires are extinguished now.
  17. Apparently the fire lasted for only 30 minutes, enough time to burn the whole Venice Tower replica and, I'm not sure at all, but part of the Ferrari Experience building. Now the fire is completely gone and no one was injured.
  18. ^Haven't tried any of them, but are you sure you read well the title of the thread?
  19. I think that a launch every 40 seconds is reasonable. Shambhala dispatches every 1 minute in optimal operations (PA doesn't have the greatest op's, but in summer the B&M's run with a great capacity). Shambhala's train is 32 people and a FL train is 12 people. It's about a third of people but having ⅔ of the time, so I think it could be possible.
  20. It could just be that they are steeping up the lift for having more height (no necessarily de maximum talking about the current location of the drop) in less space, and therefore having more space for the pullout. Also think that the drop will be a lot steeper so they are going to win also more "horizontal" space to do a larger pullout required because of the increased speed.
