  1. Movieland Studios / Canevaworld in Italy made a portable Wakiki Wave a permanent ride, named after Tomb Raider (with permission to use that name I'm sure ). I'm not sure if Vekoma made this one or if it is a copy-cat. Sadly the ride has been closed since the end of last season and will be removed soon. https://www.themeparkreview.com/parks/p_192_3811_movieland_studios_tomb_raider_machine
  2. I dug a bit into this, found this image on their twitter: hi-res: https://i.imgur.com/por80ow.jpg If you zoom in you see parts of the (totally realistic) coaster. Apparently, is should be built in this area: https://www.google.nl/maps/@24.5930202,46.3024831,12275m/data=!3m1!1e3 And that area happens to have cliffs of about 200m / 650 ft high, so who knows
  3. The building pictured is just the station, and the outdoor queue is not shaded. Found a picture: https://rcdb.com/773.htm#p=34483
  4. These are my thoughts on this as well. However, as you also pointed out, handing out a 2018 award when you're well in 2019 might not get the right exposure. I don't know how flexible you are into moving the poll to an earlier time (say November or thereabouts). The big summer and Halloween peaks are over so everybody has had the time to ride new additions, and it's still in the same calendar year. The downside might be that come November, lot's of websites and organisations are making end-of-year lists, so I don't know if that's desirable.
  5. I think you are looking for http://www.coast2coaster.com
  6. I took this after the test runs of Toverland's new wing coaster
  7. Small update from today. Most of the track has been completed. Only the final helix and the turn into the dive drop remain.
  8. For public transport in the Netherlands, https://9292.nl/en/ is your friend. It's very straightforward to use. Also, the public transport setting on google maps is quite accurate. Efteling has a dedicated bus service going to two major train stations. But be on time, the buses can become crowded. Toverland should have a bus service during the summer, but it's a different story each year. The train station near Toverland has two bus stops some distance apart, which is very confusing. Also, if you see 'Belbus' anywhere, this means you have to call ahead a 'reserve' a trip otherwise the bus
  9. LIMs have a lower maximum acceleration than the current system, so that wouldn't work. Unless you rip out the existing station and move it back a couple of hundered feet to increase the launch track length.
  10. I have a question for Kristen! Since you've been travelling basically since the day you've been born, what is the earliest memory you have of a park/ride/trip to another state/country? (Am I doing this right? no idea what kind of scope these questions should be )
  11. I have worked at a park for a number of years (not Six Flags, so I don't know their procedures). The reason for fastening seatbelts on empty seats is so that they don't flop around and damage/wear the seat and train body. At least that was my instructor back then told me. As for the restraint checking thing, I am a firm believer that operators/attendants should pull on every restraint to check the locking mechanism. I've had it happen to me that the locking mechanism of one restraint wouldn't engage. Had I checked only visually it would've ended badly. As for the lady you mentioned, while
  12. I wonder if these rumours of the removal of Dragons are peaking because it might be near the end of its life? Dragons is just as old as Hulk. A park is not likely to tear down a perfectly healthy coaster, but if they need to choose between a rebuild of the entire coaster(s) or install a brand new ride, the choice might swing in favor of a new ride. Which I would truly detest TBH, Dragons is one of the best rides in FL.
  13. While this would be incredibly awesome, I think the top speed would be waaay too high for the rest of the course. I think RMC will make to top bit of the lift hill Lightning Rod-ish, with a small predrop.
