Already planning on making the journey this September- Two Schwartzkopf Coasters. One park. Two EXCELLENT Schwartzkopf Coasters. One Park.

 

OOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYESSSSSSSS!

 

Love the new colours. Much more becoming to see her with a blue dress and yellow ribbon. Very nice indeed!

Looks a lot better than it did at Flamingo Land thats for sure, and it figures that a German coaster would have Siemens parts on it (the OP7 screen, we use them on our machines at work) and a Rittal cabinet (also German).

 

Rock on vertical contruction!

That's really great for Mexico. Chapultepec looks like such a nice park. I've always wanted to ride that woodie and this gives me even more reason to hit this and SF Mex.

 

Looking very nice (a much better color scheme). Hope to see it up and running soon!

YEAH! Brake calipers, pneumatics and wheel carriers. That made my day!..lol

 

I think the shipping company made a major error in its destination. They were supposed to ship all of that track and related components to Hawaii. My backyard is still empty.

 

Good job on the pics. I love the color-scheme (sending a note/pics to CP-to take note that other colors DO exist besides red..lol).

and so little time left to get it all back together. I hope you didn't 'pocket' any of those 'little' parts you saw lying around there. It would be a shame if they couldn't get it to work because of that, hehe. Reminds me of Humpty Dumpty for some reason.

 

Great pictures. Thanks for sharing!!

I was able to visit Chapultepec Park many years ago, but unfortunately the "woodie" was closed because portions of it had caught on fire. Sadly their "wild mouse" was fun, but not much of a consolation prize.

Great job with the photos. Quite a thorough documentation of the ride, and by being in some of the photos yourself, you give the viewer a perspective of the whole project. Nicely done.

Oh my gosh, it's like a mini (much mini) Mindbender!!!!!

 

They are a clone of each other, so they are the same size.

 

And the Bullet hasn't been on the German Fair curcuit, but Magnum Force did for a few months.

A few months? It was a travelling coaster for 12 years under the owner of Barth, who also owns Olympia Looping.

 

Bullet or "Wiener Looping" was designed to travel, but didn't straight away. It went to Prater first, but had problems operating their due to nose i think, not sure if it ever opened at Prater. It went to the US, came back to Germany for modifcations and then it went to showman Goetzke who I think toured with it for 2 years.

 

Lastly, Minebender isn't a clone of Dreier Looping/Magnum Force. It's taller, slightly longer, doesn't have a second lift, a mirror image of the original, has smaller trains and doesn't sit on a base frame - granted its near enough a clone, but not quite

People were saying they thought it went with the German fair circuit once it left Flamingo land, and it did, only for a few months.

It didn't apear in any fairs in Germany after Flamingoland.

 

It would *have* to last longer than a few months if it did, as the level of investment to make it travel again would be massive. Cranes, trailers, tractors (trucks), staff, etc.

 

I know Magnum travelled the fairs but I don't think Bullet did. And wow the ride ran 5 trains!

 

I believe Bullet did, not for long mind. And yes, it (magnum/3er looping) would run 5 trains - When it first left the fair scene, i *think* the park it went to converted 2 trains to having shoulder restraints, leaving 2 with lap bars (unused - but used at flamingo) and using the 5th train for spares. At flamingoland, the remains of the trains that had shoulder harness' could be seen around the ride area along with other bits and pieces.

 

I personally have mixed feelings. Dreier Looping/Magnum Force and Thriller/Zonga are only with us thanks to the parks who bought them after their life travelling the fairs in germany, but they are in alot worse state since leaving.

 

I have a signed copy (wieland not anton) of the Schwarzkopf brochure from the 80's that features Himalaya Bahn (now Apina Bahn) on the front and Dreier Looping/Magnum Force and Wiener Looping/Bullet in the centre. I can post pics of the brochure if people like?

 

Sorry for going off topic slightly

Frade, please don't take this the wrong way, but when you had them pictures took, wereyou having a modelling shot done?

 

Some of them pics are sooooo funny with you posing by the track, your all "Hey, look at me, hangin' out with some coaster track, yeah".

 

I bet I ain't the only one who thought that!

 

Just please don't take it the wrong way, please.

 

And these pics are just from page 3! v
