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 Movieland Studios.

Thats one of them crazy drop towers that M&D's Scotland Theme Park are getting!

 

There was a lot of confusion when the planning permission details were released on this ride, as it says it was a drop tower with a 40m height and a 60m lenght!

^Um, I am a little underwhelmed by this. A bunch of older generation rides and copies of shows done else where. Yawn.

 

Even odder is Gardaland trying to pass off Sequoia Adventure as new for 2006...

 

 

Last year sequoia has had many problems... for this, Gardaland will try to pass it as new for 2006...

 

i know that it's strange.....

Wow. I must say that any park I go to that has a 1st Gen. Free Fall tower is 'ok' by me. I absolutely LOVE those rides. From the extremely fast lift through the structure to the extremely quick drop. Personally, I find that these rides drop faster than the new type towers. I rarely lose my stomach on the new towers, however every time I ride the 1st Gen. towers my eyes are watering at the bottom. Anyways, awesome for them, I'm glad to see one being put back up then all the ones coming down.

I have never been on a 1st gen Intamin droptower, but Ive seen plenty of videos and I must say that they look far scarier than any other drop towers I have seen.

 

I also think that this ride will be a nice addition to MovieWorld really needs something to keep people coming back because once you have seen the shows there isnt really that much to do in the park.

1st gen. freefalls are absolutely amazing! I don't think they are rough at all, but they are really intense. Freefall @ SFOG provided some crazy -g's. What's really cool about these rides is that the airtime somehow seems to continue even during the transition from vertical to horizontal. It just feels strange to ge pushed back into the seat and pulled up into the OTSR at the same time. It is a truly unique experience.

I'm not sure if Hyde sold or not. Still, kinda cool that 20 some years after they first became available, they're being sold and touted as new rides to draw in the crowds. You know you've built a good thrill ride if its still exciting 20 years later. I bet Joey is sad they went last year and not this year.

It was probably Dare Devil Dive from Cedar Point.
What the heck is Dare Devil Dive?

 

I bet this is Mr. Hyde's Nasty fall. I thought it was sold. Demon Drop at Cedar Point wasn't sold, so it's probably still there.

I was searching ebay yesterday, and I found this

Looks like Movieland Studios Italy is going to get rid of there only coaster 'X Speed'. If this is good only the future will tell...

 

So if anyone want to surprise a coaster enthusiast with a great gift: Now's your chance! Bid now

Good riddance if you ask me! The entire X-section of the park was total crap! Hopefully the park will add some better rides/theming to that area.

 

If they manage to attract more visitors they might be able to improve their amazingly horrible operations aswell...
