Flamingo Land Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Flamingo land, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

I searched and nothing came up here.

 

So does anybody know anything about the new ride? I mean, its a Vekoma so it has to be good, right?

I'll believe it when I see it though. Flamingoland has been threatening to take out Bullet and Magnum Force since 2002 now!

 

I also agree that Bullet is amazing and should stay put but let's wait and see what actually happens.

Well if Bullet does get sold I hope it finds a nice new home, I'd take moving the coaster over demolishing it any day. As for the new SLC, I think it looks fair and I wonder if it will valley like Jubilee Odyssey did.

I wonder if anyone will buy Bullet and Magnum Force. From what I have heard, the park hasnt taken much care of them and that they are in very bad condition. And spare parts for Schwarzkopf coasters cant be easy to get.

His son (Weiland) is continuing the business and sells part for his father's rides. They aen't that hard to get...

 

I think that most schwarzkopfs go to South America to die.

 

I know

Many thanks to flamingolandforce.co.uk for their many construction updates for this coaster! And obviously thanks for this video!

 

But loads of thanks go to Robb & Elissa for bringing us their TPR "Exclusive" construction tour video of Kumali!

Yeah I liked the themeing too!

 

Them trains did seem to have a "new style" look to them

 

Apparantly this is a smooth coaster I'll give it a year!

Looks fantastic (will look even better when the theming's completed). Hopefully I'll make the 4 hour trek up to Flamingoland later in the year. The park has already come along in leaps and bounds since my first visit in 2004. It's turning into a 'true' theme park and is no longer a glorified fun fair.

Yeah, all the little themed details really make it look impressive. Love the rock covered footers and the support paint scheme, very nice, thanks for the link!

 

How's the zero-G roll compare to a B&M? Love the whipping snap roll action of early B&M's, their new forceless design like on SB where it just forcelessly rolls through the inversion without any laterals was the biggest disappointment of SB for me.

Wow! Though its not finished yet, the theming on Kumali looks like its going to be really good. Could it be that I'm actually looking forward to riding a Super SLC?! It IS, hard to believe huh!? I'm looking forward to June, though I gotta wonder if the yellow in the supports will attract those mustard bugs.
