I don't think there will be anything new this year, with the rumoured wood coaster coming next year that is likely to be on the Corkscrew site.

Just wondering if something Like Rocky Mountains Goliath would be within flamingolands budget. I know most UK parks fear the up keep of woodies. I for one wood (pun intended) Be very Very Happy.

If they can't maintain a Zamperla Volare for more than 2 years, I'm not confident they could maintain a woodie full stop!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Your kidding me right? They had an issue with rides that most parks have at some points with something falling off a train. I didn't hear people going "Oh Thorpe Park can't maintain rides anymore" after things fell of Rush and Swarm. Its just an unfortunate incident that happened. Im pretty sure they could maintain a woodie quite easily.

I Love Donkeys!

Im starting to think flamingo land will get a woodie, However i think they will be another steel before the wooden or maybe a hybrid track to make the upkeep lower. Im thinking RMC as they are mega cheap and very reliable with a good safety record. The park have a really good saftey record, Apart from the well exaggerated hero accident were she used fake blood on her hair to get into local media. Point is RMC hybrid = marketing dream for UK as they (1) Look good (2) can be very compact (3) None of them in uk (And flamingo seem to add alot of UK firsts lately (First zamperla flying, First el loco, First moto launched coaster, First vertical swings, First disk-o (in the world),first combo tower and custom SLC) I still think they would get a clone of tempesto (Im not saying the standard version as i think Flamingo land would get the shoulder bar version due to the UK and how they describe stuff. UK Media described the swarm as unsafe when they found out about the vest so im guessing they would take note to avoid negative media. I also think they would get a 3 train version because the park is getting more and more popular lately due having the most coasters in the UK (Blackpool does not count as "5" of them should be 2 as they are the same) Not gunna go into that but apart from that, They are drawed with alton when the smiler is not SBNO.

A nice "compact" wooden coaster like Twister at Grona Lund or even like ours
here in Vancouver might be awesome for Flamingo Land.

The UK MIGHT be ready for RMC but there aren't really many woodies that can get the treatment. However, there might be a chance for a custom built one.
