p. 20: Wizard of Oz themed land for 2024!

Recommended Posts

Update on the new Mack coaster, turn around now complete with an interesting top section.

It looks like there may be some airtime right into a sharp turn down into the corner.

 

With the speed of construction now increasing as the public holidays are done for a while it should show its true layout over the next 2-3 weeks...can't wait!

Things are really changing almost daily now, with things getting very "twisty" today.

Also the brake run section has started to be installed with a lot of other supports going in also.

Will submit a full photo update in the next two days however hoping this will hold your interest until then....

Well due to my old girl playing up this weekend (my car, not my wife ) I was unable to get to the park to complete the update I promised.

However a big thanks to @themeparkgirl on the Parkz.com.au forums for allowing me to use her photo to bring an update of the new Mack Hyper Coaster under construction at Movie World.

So far the speculation about length/height/name etc is still ongoing until the park makes the official announcement, but the consensuses is that it will be just over the 200ft mark, approx 4500ft long and may have up to 3 inversions similar to Flash in China.

The photos below show the area closest to the half way point of the ride, with the large Stengel Dive turn still around the 30m tall mark (to give you an idea of the height in the photos), into an inclined dive loop for the half way turn around. The track then comes back under itself, into a s-bend back over the track and to go under again. In photos late yesterday afternoon, it would also seem as this now leads into what could be a zero-g roll, although this should be completed by next weekend at the current speed of construction.

 

The only thing that the park as said is it is due to open in September 2017, so if your planning a trip down under around that time defiantly put Movie World on the list...

and now onto the update...

Looking towards the mid way point turnaround...

The half way point, this should be nice and fast still.

S-Bend supplying what should be a great head chopper feel going under...

Guess the support crew where on a day off when this track went in?

Here's hoping by next weekend this section will be completed..

Top of the lift hill ready and access stairs ready and waiting to be installed...maybe after the hill is started...

And finally, an overview of the area completed so far, for those who have been to the park, this is beside the main road entry to the park, quite a walk from the entry to Movie world which should give an idea of how long this ride will be when completed.

Wow. Didn't even know this was being built until just now. Looks like a really fun ride so far and I look forward to hearing new information about this ride soon.

It really is coming along now, with more track added to show a new ejector air time "twist" hill.

This is under the large turn in the photos and is seeming to lead back to another track cross for more of that head chopping feeling.

 

There are two pieces of track in the car park that have lead to a lot of speculation of either a Zero-G Roll, or even a Heart-Line loop being installed. Given the location of the track numbers to those already installed we hope this should happen in the next week or two.

 

For those who have yet to visit the park, here is a arial view to show the total area and location of the ride.

 

Will have a full update on the weekend if not before...

 

Cheers

Not much track installed this week however there has been a large amount of supports installed, almost bowl shape in layout with a lot more on the ground yet to go into place.

 

Best photos over on parkz.com.au if you are wanting to see the latest photos...

Ok, so I will have a full update for all interested on Sunday oz time, however after seeing this picture from today, I am starting to wonder what they are currently drinking over at Mack to come up with this.....

How many times can you fit the track through the one loop??

So I thought I would share these updated photos of the construction happening on the Hyper Coaster at MW. I think its safe to say this will be one awesome coaster when it opens. (Photo credit to Gold Coast Theme Parks)

The start of the supports for the non-inverting loop with a maze of track around it.

supports covering the street.

I would call it a spaghetti coaster!

Look of where the loop will be.

The coaster will go all the way to green lantern. Not many pieces of track left in the car park. Hopefully more pieces arrive soon.

Looks like they forgot a support.

More supports to hold the non-inverting loop.

Now that Green Lantern is closed for maintenance we are seeing the construction of the lift hill.

The first lift hill support.

More supports.
