Photo TR: FireWhip (Brazil) – Pre-Opening


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

Last week, December 28th, Beto Carrero World (the most famous Brazilian theme park) opened the first inverted rollercoaster in Brazil! It’s called FireWhip – in honor of the park’s founder Beto Carrero, known for his cowboy whip performances.

 

The park invited the Brazilian rollercoaster club (CBMR) for an exclusive pre-opening on the December 13 and we had a lot of fun while riding this coaster for some hours. We also enjoyed the other park rides and attractions, so here is a special photo TR for you guys from TPR.

 

Hope you like it!

 

----------

 

Some of you may know that Brazil has continental dimensions, so the members of our club live very far away from each other. We created a main group that travelled together to the park which is located in the South of the country. The other members decided to go there by themselves.

 

When we arrived at the bus station in Santa Catarina (state where BCW is located in), a park truck was waiting for us to take everybody to the park!

Beto Carrero World has a great haunted house.

 

Second part is coming now... =P

There’s a very funny mirror house in this island where you can see some fat boys.

Here we have something that TPR really loves!

DSC05050.jpg.2f74a41102f3a58181cc1551bec2bf2c.jpg

As you can see, there is a swinging ship in the Pirate’s Island. (It was closed today, because it’s getting a new theming!)

The park also has an Intamin 1st gen. tower.

ytcuytyu.jpg.7b1bf06d55a2cf37f15eae2e9c63a01b.jpg

Big Tower is awesome.

Let’s radicalize and ride Big Tower, an Intamin drop tower that is 100 meters (328 feet) tall!

You see?

The park is very well themed!

Now let’s ride Tigor Mountain, a Vekoma that pleases the whole family!

DSC04916.jpg.1cbd4f080743201099c2c95563c13f14.jpg

There’s a cool drop in the water in the end.

After this amazing time, we went to other rides and attractions in the park. This is Raskapuska.

And the TV channels interviewed us!

saiodjaosij.jpg.f2e93a5e584b4c92a33292627bbe0eef.jpg

So, we returned to the station and rode it again.

But Big Tower is higher than us! =(

Hello, Tchibum! We’re higher than you! =)

By the way, we got some great pictures at the top of FireWhip.

DSCI0014.jpg.a1a3f97522f75267ae8dfd4ed1beb468.jpg

Everybody wanted to take some pictures there.

The park let us climb up the lifthill too! Yeah, by foot!

87481646.jpg.92f655cde512f028e6b51001c07fc40f.jpg

FireWhip was only running for CBMR that day! (I’m sure that the public didn’t like to watch it)

dusdusgd.jpg.dfb41fd9ded781d43ae6a8fdc02eb7bf.jpg

We rode it until our strengths were gone. (What is not that long since we were riding a Vekoma)

It’s time to ride. Alisson and me where the first ones to ride FireWhip in the front seats that day.

DSCI0002.jpg.b0c177e5cdd9a99d6fb0282191f9511c.jpg

We were greeted by Beto Carrero son: Alex Murad. Since Beto Carrero passed away in the beginning of last year, now he is the park president.

So, here it is!

Wait for us FireWhip! (As you can see, its theming wasn’t complete for our pre-opening, but who cares? =D)

shduasghuasg.jpg.2a9442f269fe3faff4b975389cc2a99b.jpg

But first, we have to ride it. So, here we go FireWhip! Woohoo! o/

DSCI0001.jpg.78ed5c1258f0ad0eaa8a31f991f60ac5.jpg

The park called us to say that they had also invited the media (some TV channels) to interview our group and that they needed our opinions about the new Vekoma SLC. OMG!

Thank you for the lift Beto Carrero World!

Going to the park! (we see you Big Tower! =D)

DSC04899.jpg.795b8d220b983db5f05df99d5617eb73.jpg

Yeah, we were the first ones to see it! Some say this new area will be an independent theme park in the future...

DSC04897.jpg.04b8f60f1d0602099fe2f9c133b120e8.jpg

This is the Aventura Selvagem (Wild Adventure) truck. It will be used in the new area of the park under construction. It’s part of a safari attraction.

Thank you for reading this!

The sunset announces the end of the first day of FireWhip working for everybody.

This is FireWhip; an awesome rollercoaster in an awesome theme park!

DSC01230.jpg.15570eedabd6632bf1787d64a4653848.jpg

There are cameras on each train that record your ride, so you can buy a DVD of your experience in the first inverted rollercoaster in Brazil

DSC01199.jpg.6e82bf21e17e5cada699cd162405558d.jpg

Fog – One of the special effects! =D

DSC01198.jpg.37d21e0146df051649955b9dc41bf706.jpg

Yeah, the theming is complete now!

But it’s not exclusive for our group today... Let’s wait a little bit!

DSC01213.jpg.236613bf7d87febd6288edb77cefc4ac.jpg

Some members of the Brazilian rollercoaster club were there again to see the now complete FireWhip.

DSC01189.jpg.3c00dc003b233f6294091cc2ea60510e.jpg

It’s a whole new experience here in Brazil, so the entire park wanted to ride it.

DSC01185.jpg.530864699759257c29af812f27bc201a.jpg

The fireworks announce that everybody is about to feel the Vekoma power!

DSC01182.jpg.e0274732d6f275d1e4157cdb2ccacca4.jpg

The Park held a special event for FireWhip grand opening.

DSC04970.jpg.ae9610420a8ed23d29e0da6c730ebacb.jpg

At the end of the day, we can watch an incredible show that tells us about Beto Carrero life. It’s a special moment that makes everybody laugh and cry at the same time. It’s called: Beto Carrero Memory Show.

 

As you can see, Beto Carrero World has a lot of rides and attractions for the whole family. The park is very large and I can’t show everything here, or it would take about four pages of pictures.

 

So I end up this TR here and leave a bonus to you: some pictures of FireWhip grand opening that happened last Sunday!

The second sign says “Montanha-Russa”, which means “rollercoaster” in portuguese, so let’s follow it! =)

^^ It was made by the park itself.

Only the boats and motors are imported; they are from Hafema (Germany).

 

The course, theming and construction are 100% Brazilian!

 

About FireWhip, the park has a former Vekoma engineer there, so they know everything about how to make a Vekoma smooth. lol

 

Of course, it's not as smooth as an Intamin or a B&M, but it doesn't shake that much if compared to other Vekomas.

OMG, Thanks Marcio...

 

You know how much i LOVE THIS PARK!

That is truly the best-looking SLC ever. There are many coasters from higher-rated parks and companies that don't look anywhere near as awesome as FireWhip. Excellent job to the park.

This was fantastic! Always fun to see a park I haven seen before...and a NICE one at that!!!! If only we could have a TPR Brazil trip...but I dont really see a point yet. There would have to be some 'culture days' on that one!!

 

Anyway, thank you for the amazing, in depth report

Pretty interesting that the park built the rapids ride. It is awesome to see that they can take care of their rides. Fire Whip looks awesome, and with an engineer from Vekoma, hopefully the park will get a brand new custom made coaster int the future.

Great TR & pics! I didn't realize that Firewhip had awesome paint & theming. Did it have the new Vekoma SLC trains like Morey's?

 

 

You might want to view the PTR again as your question can easily be answered. There are multiple pictures of riders in the restraints.

Hi, TPR!

 

I'm Lucaz Ferraz, CBMR founder. Marcio is one of the most important members we have, without him, it would be impossible to run the Club.

I'm glad you liked the TR, Marcio did really an awesome job!

 

I believe BCW's 1st gen is the last of it's kind. But don't worry: the park has no plans to shut it down! People love it!

 

About FireWhip: the restraints are not the new ones, but the sidewheels are very well regulated, so it doesn't shake as much as the 'mind erasers', if you now what I mean.

 

Tigor is perfectly smooth, but I think it's due to the kind of track.

 

And Star Mountain is almost not a Vekoma...lol Seriously, it doesn't shake at all, I don't know how they did that...

 

About TPR in Brazil, I really think you should organize a trip to South America. Check the parks you could visit:

 

In Brasil:

Beto Carrero World (4 coasters)

Hopi Hari (4 coasters)

Playcenter (5 coasters)

Terra Encantada (3 coasters)

Mirabilandia (3 coasters)

Walter World (2 coasters)

Acqualokos (1 home-made hybrid coaster)

Nicolandia (4 coasters, including one queen-bee)

And many other one-coaster small parks

 

In Argentina:

Parque de La Costa (3 coasters, including 1 SLC)

many small one-coaster parks

 

In Chile:

Fantasilandia (5 coasters, including 1 SLC)

 

Colombia:

Camelot Park (1 very interesting coaster in a very cute park)

Salitre Magico (4 coasters including a Schwarzkopf Jet Star 3)

Parque Nacional del Cafe (1 Schwarzkopf Extended Jumbo Jet)

 

Venezuela:

Diverland (1 coaster. The park is in Isla Margarita).

 

You could do all that in 10 days, if running just for credits.. smile

 

You should really consider!

 

Happy 2009!

^Thanks Lucaz,

 

A TPR South America Trip is in the works for 2010 or 2011, and we are very excited! Hopefully as it comes closer you can help us with some park stuff!

That is truly the best-looking SLC ever.

 

There are a few really impressive looking SLCs out there (it's amazing how you can polish a turd, eh?) and this is probably the top of the pile. Watch out for Infusion in Blackpool, the Mayan Adventure in Taiwan, and the Cobra in Cape Town mind.
