It's funny you mention that as we were just talking recently how Screamscape seems to come up less and less in conversation lately. Not sure if it's just that not as much is happening industry wide right now, or that so much of it gets posted to social media before you see it on that site.


While Screamscape rumors were always sort of a joke among enthusiasts they actually used to be right more than they ever had any right to be considering they were always going on hearsay / questionable sources. I think you're on to something by bringing up social media. I feel like now they're pushing out rumors a lot faster with less interest in checking their sources so they can still be ahead of the curve in the age of social media and it's led to them posting some really stupid rumors and losing a little credibility (like the one about Kings Dominion replacing the Log Flume with a launched B&M flyer a few years ago).

As for White Cyclone, that would be awesome. With a ride that huge the possibilities of what they could do are virtually endless. Obviously we have no way of knowing how credible this is but that coaster really does seem to be begging for the RMC treatment.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Nagashima Spaland has announced WHite Cyclone will close on the 28th of January 2018 until Spring 2019 for "Renewal work".

In other words a shiny new RMC make over.

Oh hell yes! That coaster is HUGE and will surely make an amazing RMC. I can't wait to revisit Japan

This is awesome news. Nagashima really is the foreign "Cedar Point." White Cyclone's layout also has a lot of potential--I can't wait to see what happens when RMC works their magic.
