Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I think due to working a private school full of young children I can't currently go to UAE since we had a huge MERS outbreak here in Korea and the whole area shut down for over 2 weeks and parents are extremely sensitive. When the outbreak was at its peak there was a lot of panic and everywhere was a ghost town. Our location was literally in the middle of 3 of the most infected hospitals as well.

 

It's annoying because the huge outbreak numbers were more due to the culture of people hospital shopping and people skipping out on their quarantine (still went on business trip, played golf with friends, even a doctor who should have known better went to a medical conference) and even though the one pretty close to us only had 4 cases, it was where the outbreak started and spread from there to almost 200 people with mass panic since the guy had been through our town and others by public transport to a few places. Considering how low the numbers are for UAE to the general population, the chances of catching it are probably less than winning the lottery but super annoyingly parents threaten to not send their kids when they hear of teachers going out since it's still so fresh in their mind (even though 99% of the cases spread in hospitals not the general population) so I think my chances of visiting will have to wait until 2017/18.

Nice to see some modification here!

Very slight differences, but likely helpful. Maybe if Flying Aces is well-received they'll replace the ones on Skyrush, but that's solely on Hersheypark.

I know UAE isn't bad, but I still fear going anywhere in the Middle East with all the chaos happening there right now.

 

Bro, you live in Connecticut. Would you go to Pepe's or Carbone's for dinner? If the answer is "yes", then there's no reason to worry about UAE.

?? I see no difference. If they didn't significantly change those restraints, and it doesn't look to me like they did, then they made a serious mistake. Sure we enthusiasts all love Skyrush, but I honestly can not imagine a park owner, with all kinds of guests to worry about, riding one of these rides and saying "Gee I really need to have one of these in my park!" It's not just where the lap bar falls, it's all that crunching action being concentrated in such a narrow area.

It looks thinner in the area between where it touches your thighs and the hole, considering something most people complain about on Skyrush is how tight it feels in the wing seats by the end, it'll be interesting once people have ridden both to see if it makes it better.

I don't think they are different. Pretty sure it's just the camera angle that makes it appear different. Could be wrong though.

Restraints sit at the correct position between the waist and the legs!!

 

I don't think they're different at all. From off ride Skyrush looks like it sits at the correct position as well:

 

 

I'm telling you, it's not just where it sits on the leg, it's the angle and width of contact between the bar and your leg. Do you see how the part that hits your leg is rounded, and not flat? That's why it digs in so painfully. It's the difference between someone pressing on your leg with an open palm versus their elbow.

 

See how Thunderbolt has the flat part of the restraint holding you down, instead of the edge? That's how it should be. Intamin screwed up bad.
