Photo TR: Siam Park City 29/12/2014 + NEW UPDATE


Recommended Posts

29/12/2014 : Before ending of the year. I decided to going to Siam Park city again. This is the first time that I went on a working day. Along this trip I visited alone to see more what exactly happen around me and make a new friends during visited. Since I has a short time to visiting today, In this report including Amusement park zone only (Not include Family zone, Small world and Water park) I went to it by Taxi which about 15 Mins. from my home. My main camera was broken so all of this was taken by smartphone camera. Let's checking out!

สวนสยาม (Suan Siam) was the original name of the park. In 2010 The park has Guinness certificate of world's largest man-made wave pool. So, They changing to Siam Park City.

Surprisingly! There's look more crowd than weekend.

007.thumb.jpg.ee179bf1f57374d0c25221bad350b072.jpg

when the line is a bit long, I see ms. Noppagarn -The Park Deputy Managing Director come to see what happening and solve it by herself.

They give me a purchase order. If you come with your group, Just one person per PO in a line. In this year they have 2 type of prices. The first one is for Thai resident is 500 bath (over 130 cm.) and 120 bath (101-130 cm.) another ones for Foreigner is 900 bath (30 USD/ Over 130 cm.) and 750 bath (25USD+101-130 cm.). Both are Day Pass Ticket.

Today just opens in 2 booth.

010.thumb.jpg.ba8d5b2dd1a49e70ed6f30efaaf00fdd.jpg

Day Pass Wristband. Don't warp it by yourself!

011.thumb.jpg.1e23511095937363e9b269a19944bf93.jpg

But go to the gate and staff will scan and wrapped with sticker.

012.thumb.jpg.8eed1e2f9b0258f3e6a8280a5dc220cd.jpg

when you pass the gate you'll see a double deck carousel.

but line look a bit long. I would be check later.

016.thumb.jpg.53b682abad88de4fcea191d7ccfc8502.jpg

First ride of the day with Takeoff. If I remember correctly, This is one of two takeoff park version (Särkänniemi has ones). It gives a great force and I really love it.

017.thumb.jpg.4d6e3f053e06ddddd6a08643b8b2975c.jpg

This ride is high capacity but less rider because it was a really "flat" ride and located in the alley between Log Flume and Boomerang where people rarely come through caused less ride per cycle such 2 out of 40 seats. I think Ranger which under construction behind them will helping it.

018.thumb.jpg.10f44a766fe5ec41b886511bd5da2542.jpg

Twin Dragon - Japanese style pirate ship. Not really big but it was fun.

Giant Drop - Intamin 75 m. Drop tower. It pretty high during the ride.they have own sound effect. Some cycle they have minor problem such take up very slow or catch car doesn't down back or stuck in the air. That's make more scary.

057.thumb.jpg.ca1f86433c1e4276458bea6b974b9d75.jpg

Noticed that they didn't put the covers on the catch car. I have an answer at the end of report!

This bridge located next to an extra helix where connecting to Adventure Island. Inside the island have monkeys in gigantic cage which take care of by stuff. But they closed it for safety to visitor because it is quiet and people can't see from outside. It might be caused of bad thing in here.

So, Thank you for your attention! If you want to know more about this park fell free to ask below ^^

-----According the Giant Drop-----

They don't put the cover on a catch car because this ride often stuck on the tower. So the park decided to install release device which controlled by remote. If it stuck, an operator pointing a remote to receiver on a catch car. Then a small pneumatic cylinder pull a cable to detach a hook.

^Nice pictures. Interesting, that remote control feature on the catch car.

It's also interesting how the second half of the SLC is mirrored (compared to the standard ones). I believe I've seen a TPR POV of one in China which is also like that but I'm not sure.

Yep! This model is 765 m. extended which have only 2 in the world. Another ones is in Suzhou Amusement Land, China. According to Vekoma info that both are the world's largest SLC model.

What amazing photos of a park I seriously never knew existed. You took some really really good photos of the park. I love the theming of the Log Flume! Looks like a great little park! Also, thanks for explaining the lack of covers on the drop tower! Great trip report!

What a beautiful park!

 

and the flats mostly seem to have very long ride cycles (other than Enterprise. . .that was a shorter cycle than we saw at Dorney Park!!).

 

but just beautiful, with a nice selection of rides.

 

thanks for sharing!

Excellent report! Good luck to the park with all those Huss attractions.

Getting spare parts (As well as support in general) from them is a nightmare. KBF can attest to that in their dealing with them regarding Riptide.

 

LL:DOD (Assuming Z:DOD as well) has this same system installed on its catch cars. Thanks for sharing.

Holy Huss! You'd think they'd be able to get parts for Topspin since they pretty much own half the Huss catalogue. I really like the look of that SLC much better than the standard model, though it looks slow.

I'm sorry for lack of respond! In this year the park also have 2 more Huss rides which is Ranger and Break Dance No.3. Both are under constructing behind the Takeoff.So now they owned 9 Huss attractions. Next time! I'll be back again to report in other zone such Family zone, small world and Water park.

And the wave pool which is World's Largest wave pool. They also use their own wave generator that used four linkage bar to push 10 tons metal plate in to the water every 10 second. (This image is the narrow beach of the wave pool)

Excellent report! Good luck to the park with all those Huss attractions.

Getting spare parts (As well as support in general) from them is a nightmare. KBF can attest to that in their dealing with them regarding Riptide.

If it's anything to do with a Gearbox and/or Large Bearing, it's that way for Every Ride Manufacturer, as China has complete control of the Large Bearing Market and they keep production low to keep the prices up. It took 9 Months for Lagoon to get their Rebuilt Gearboxes back from Mondial for Cliffhanger (2) and Samurai in separate years.
