News in South Korea: Diving Coaster 'Draken' opens, and more

Postby Tim2009 » Sun May 06, 2018 1:17 pm

I got some news in South Korea...

1. Gyeongju World Diving Coaster, 'Draken' opens to the public (First day of May)

Draken, the first diving coaster in Korea, opened to the public in the first day of May.

The place where Draken is located named as 'Darken Valley'.
The theme is based on Norse mythology, taking place after 'Ragnarok', a great battle that resulted in deaths of major gods like Odin, Thor, Freyr etc.

Draken Valley Theme Story:
It's been years after 'Ragnarok'...
Skaði, awaken in 2018, freezes the world with her magic.
The only way to stop her magic and save the world is finding the treasure that represents four elements: Water, wind, fire, earth and finally an 'absolute ring', represents 'love'.
Our hero, 'Peter' is ordered by 'Odin' to find these treasures and stop Skaði.
Actually, you are 'Peter', and I managed to track down locations of these treasures.

1. Water: Snow Park, resist snowstorm and speed! (Note: Only available in Winter)




2. Wind: Dragon Race, resist the powerful flight of baby dragons!




3. Fire: Klake, Klake is a firebird that 'Thiazi', father of Skaði, transformed to keep you away from the treasure. Resist his powerful attack!




4. Earth: I located the treasure in the rocky mountain of 'Fenrir', near Draken.

5. Absolute Ring, Love: Draken has an absolute ring. Resist his attack and find the ring and save the world!
I managed to find some videos by brave thrill-seekers and heroes out there.







Draken is mostly dispatched with the announcement from the speaker.
Here is a translation of Draken dispatch announcement: To find the five treasures to save the world...Draken, take off!

2. Everland opens 'Mystery Mansion' after refurbishment

Everland opened 'Mystery Mansion', a ride where you shoot ghosts with your gun, after a long refurbishment.
Refurbishment made new pre-show, new ride vehicle, and new ride experience including screens.
It's in a soft-opening, so it's in some technical difficulties and can close anytime.



Mystery Mansion theme story: 300 years ago, this mansion belonged to Count Mysterious. Everyone had a good life, until ghosts, who wanted this place, attacked and took over the mansion. Since residents of mansion didn't have any way to fend off the ghosts, you are called in to take care of ghosts. Your mission is to take out ghosts with the guns, mounted on the ride vehicle. The residents, including the butler who takes charge of pre-show, are counting on you. Take out ghosts and save the mansion!

Tip: Shoot ghosts, and you must work together to take down the final ghost. Be quick, or final ghost will get away and you will lose. Take down the final ghost in time to save the mansion, or else the ghost will escape and you won't be able to save the mansion.

3. Lotte World Gyro Drop VR: Zombie Drop opens to the public

Age limit: 15 years old, height limit: 130cm

Lotte World Gyro Drop has opened new VR experience for riders.
The new VR experience is called 'Zombie Drop'.
Go up to the drop tower and plunge down while trying to survive the zombie attack!

Lotte World Gyro Drop 'Zombie Drop VR' theme story:
A terrible zombie virus has been spread across Seoul.

Seoul has been overrun by zombies


The city is overrun, and more and more people are dying.
You have no choice but abandon the city, and escape.
However, lots of zombies are heading in your way.
It's a matter of time before this place is overrun.

Good update! I didn't realize Griffon was now being cloned, but if there's a dive coaster to clone, it's that one in my opinion.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Outlaw Run
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Twisted Colossus, Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325

That's my home park and I have a lot of a chance to ride Draken. Just 18 miles away from my home.
