Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

^Because it's not a park model. It's literally a ride you can find at all the county fairs in the region. Kind of stands out in a park full of multi-million dollar roller coasters.

Seems to be a very similar "experience" that you would've have from Thrill Shot. Which didn't operate for a few years before being demolished(assuming it had numerous defects). Now MM is getting a modern sling shot ride, and because it's portable it's considered "ghetto".

 

Where is the logic? -_-

Does it really matter if it's the permanent fixture version of the ride or not? The pieces look colorful and nice enough to me. The only people who are going to know any of this is enthusiasts, so why should the spend the extra money on somethings that won't even benefit them?

I like the idea too for the SlingShot. It fits the 'Thrill Capital" theme of SFMM well. I believe this will be placed in the Deja Vu area, the space is just large enough. Also, with the those extra purple beams (I count 6 per side, if you divide the colors), maybe this could be the tallest SlingShot? They do look new and wouldn't be surprised if they were specially made for SFMM...GO BIG!!

Scandia out in Ontario has a portable ride - the drop tower I think.. Didn't really pay much attention.

 

Anyway, my first thought was, well, that it's 'ghetto'. And Scandia is a MUCH smaller park, with a much smaller budget - and it's still cheesy to me.

 

For a big corporate park to install a portable ride that they'll pass off as a new attraction... yeah, not impressed.

If you are not going to pay to ride it then why does it matter? So what if it's 'portable' parks do that all the time and if this is something the park can get for less money, make money on it as an upcharge, then easily move or remove it when the time comes can you really blame them? Do you not want the park to do things to try to save and make money so they can invest back into the park with new attractions and things? This kind of a ride will help with that in some way. Parks don't have to put in permanent rides so this idea that a portable ride is wrong is just lame. Besides, most people who will ride it, mainly the GP, won't know or care about that anyway and that is what is important- that people pay for and ride it.

 

Portable or not, who fucking cares- it doesn't matter at all and these complaints about it being portable are just.... whatever.

Some people just like to complain just to complain SFNE looks to have a similar portable model in the video I posted below and i've never heard any complaints about it, yet SFMM get's one and they may as well start having pig races and is just so ghetto

Thank you. People will bash anything that's not coaster related here It will most likely sell to the GP, which is all that matters.

 

By the way, isn't Batman, RRE and GLFF portable as well?
