P. 4: EqWalizer to become Generator with new color and theme

Recommended Posts

I'm rarely one to complain about bright colors, or even loud color schemes. But, yeah, that's a bit...much.

 

I've heard that the lap bars may look like torture devices, but are actually comfortable and a real improvement. True? There seems to be some positive feedback in this thread as people get used to their odd looks.

I have to agree that those colours are a bit too striking. Speed of Sound's colour scheme is still bright but in a good way.

 

I am glad that Eqwalizer is using the same soundtrack as Speed of Sound. I love it!

Out of nowhere this park just announced a Gravity Group wooden coaster for 2016!!!

 

Walibi Rhône-Alpes and Gravity Group have officially signed the new ride for 2016.

It will be a "wooden coaster", more on our Facebook page tomorrow!"

Wow, that really was an unexpected bit of news. Nice to see Gravity Group being so busy given all the coasters they've been building in China and now this one. Seems GCI fell off the planet.

 

GCI also just announced a new ride for Europe at Plopsaland and its rumoured Holiday Park will get one too the year after. A good year for wooden fans in Europe

Some really nice "from sketch to reality" pictures of the park's new-for-2015 jungle cruise makeover,

designed by Julien Bertevas, who also designed the Egyptian area at Parc Astérix.

 

Instead of the hippos and tigers, it now features cartoony creatures who are recreating famous movies.

 

 

Anaconda:

Also found a couple POV videos showing the scenes in action:

 

 

part 1: Anaconda, Tarzan, Pirates, Avatar, King Kong, Jurassic Park

part 2: Indiana Jones

Really nicely done.

 

I hope this update is being considered for the tow-boat ride at the Belgian park. That one used to have a Tin-Tin theme, but that license was dropped ages ago. Now there's nothing but shrubs and trees to look at.

Loved the Jungle Cruise makeover! What fun. Everything looked perfectly placed,

and I liked the idea that you see "behind the curtain" and how these creatures

put the movies' sets and such together, and "operated" them.
