New coaster for Kyongju World


Recommended Posts

The Korean park Kyongju World will add a new B&M coaster by 200?. Statistics aren't availible yet but it seems to be some sort of B&M Invert. Phaethon will be the name. The news is on their website:

Based on the picture of the main page of the website, it appears to be some sort of Inverted Sheikra, though this is most likely just a concept-art. Other pictures on the site are from Black Mamba, Montu and Nemesis.

^I laughed heartily at that.

 

Yeah, pretty shameless how they stole all that concept art, I wonder if it'll turn out to be a vekoma.

 

Hmmmm.... An inverted train traveling upside-down and backwards down a massive vertical drop... someone should try it.

 

Or a B:TR clone.

It seems to me like this is being taken way to seriously. The GP can't tell the difference, and thats generally who the coaster is marketed to anyway. They aren't going to notice the difference, all they see is "new coaster". I'm not calling them ignorant in any way, just saying that as far as marketing, what they're doing is perfectly fine.

Indeed, that's the way marketing works. Who cares? Noone!

 

... just saying that as far as marketing, what they're doing is perfectly fine.

 

But what they are actually doing is *not* perfectly fine at all. At least one photo (the Black Mamba one here: http://www.kjw.co.kr/news/news_detail.htm?num=39 ) has reportedly been used *without* permission of the photographer. (Tom Müller)

 

This may suggest that the other pics have been bluntly "stolen" as well...
