Twister - closed where they are going to put the new Joker Pendulum

&

thanks Bert

If you have a Grand Carousel ride sign please post it here (if have photos of the carousel in your Photo TR) and please be sure to send the rethemed Crime Wave when it happens

I don't seem to have a pic of the new sign, but I'll make sure to take one next time I'm in park.

but here are some shots of the Grand Carousel in it's current (new-ish) location, with it's complete refurbishment/new paint from recent visits:



and will update with Crime Wave as they actually get it going - currently Whirlygig is just in pieces (have some pics of that in my recent reports too. . but they certainly aren't exciting in terms of process yet)

- Spin Gear is now the Dubai Drone.
- Halfpipe Canyon has been removed.
- Sonic Hopper is now the Burj Drop.
- Storm G has been removed.

I mean, I could help write some reviews of more obscure parks... like Family Kingdom

Canobie Coaster - thank you. Some of those errors (junior driving ride photos) have been there for over 8 years, you figure someone would have told me before now.

No problem. I'll have some others for the other Dubai parks in the next few weeks.

I like using the Index to scout what a new park has, so I use it quite a bit. I did notice the links to the TRs didn't seem to work. I think they were missing the colon after the https.

IMG Worlds of Adventure

My report (Link) has photos of the following:

- Adventure Fortress ride sign
- Avengers Battle of Ultron ride building
- Forbidden Territory

The Avengers: Battle of Ultron listing has some photos from Hulk. Any of the photos with the circular theater are for Hulk.

Global Village

I believe they changed fair providers, so every single ride currently listed on the rides page for Global Village has closed.

My report (Link) has photos of the following rides:

- Fly France
- Global Burj
- Jamaica Drum
- London Loop
- Mumbai Xpress
- New York Jump
- No 1
- ShangHigh
- Sydney Kangaroo

The Ferris Wheel is pictured in some of my photos, but I don't have any specifically of it.

I also have a photo of the Haunted House.
