  1. Long time no see, guys. Hope everyone is well I too was on site at MW this morning for the placement of the final track piece, I did a live stream (or three) to my FB blog - it took about an hour or so due to wind delays. Anyway, I stuck around for a bit afterwards to grab some high quality piccies from a few other different perspectives and thought I would share them on here with you all, since today is certainly the day for it. Worker waiting patiently wayyyy up top of the lift hill staircase for the wind to die down, and the final track piece to be lifted

  3. The first supports have also been installed and the rest are on the ground ready to be installed tomorrow. No sign of the Joker head, but it is expected to be open tomorrow. The lift hill motor is under the shelter, and should be installed tomorrow or Monday depending on progress. The exterior of the station is also nearly complete, and more theming going up.

  5. https://www.usatoday.com/story/trav...s-single-rail-wonder-woman-coaster/534583001/ Exclusive: Six Flags to debut single-rail Wonder Woman coaster Six Flags announced today that Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster will open next spring at its Fiesta Texas location in San Antonio. The park says the new attraction won't look or behave like any thrill machine that preceded it. That's because instead of riding a set of two rails like traditional coasters, its narrow trains would soar along one 15.5-inch-wide steel track. It will be the world's first single-rail coaster. "I expect it to be craz

  7. I'm glad they have announced that it will definitely operate at night during Fright Nights. That'll be a huge drawcard.

  8. THE MICROPHONE HAS GROWN Things mentioned in the video: - The world's smallest microphone is no more - Timelapse!!!! - Yes the ride is safe - Greg still thinks this is taller than ToT but Sel seems to know the truth (but she thinks less airtime is good?) - Fright Nights info coming soon(TM) - Subtle "screw Dreamworld don't go there" at the end

  9. I had to make it to Poland this year. The self-hype on Lech Coaster was too big for me to handle! A goon friend joined me (not without intense lobbying from my part ) on this adventure which would comprise +14 coasters... but no Intamin, Mack or B&M! Part 1: Energylandia After a short night of sleep and an early flight, I was quite tired when the cringy entrance theme of Energylandia greeted us. The entrance building is quite tall and mighty, but also lacks details and a less cubic shape. The architecture and appearance of the short "Main Street" rea

  10. 22 right? 5 cars of 4 then 2 in the back? Pretty much the length of Superman but adding the back 2 seats onto it.

  19. We need a Themepark with HUGE rollercoasters, like MovieWorld is pretty decent But, imagine if we got Six Flags? We could get a RMC, B&M And all the other companies we have never got before! Id Rather Six Flags to Disney, because Disney is like a kids park, that's why we have SeaWorld for the little kids, Disney might use a lot of money but that Dosent mean there the best.

  21. Back in my school days, a group of students studying physics got to go to DW and where a specialised jacket, which recorded speeds and forces, while they went on the rides. And they used that data for analysis and study.

  25. I think @Richard really nailed it, as did @AlexB in terms of land use currently. Particularly with Clark Kirby now at the helm, there's a big whiff of the John Menzies era of Village parks again, where long term vision, investment and focus on guest experience, and look, let's be honest here, doing the right thing has trumped maximising shareholder return at the detriment of what the brand stands for. And that's important, because with the right top level people having enough exerciseable power means money spent on things that may not realise a tangible or direct ROI are upheld. Thin

  26. That looks really fun. Movieworld can just build a clone of it and be sorted. Even the name can be the same, since it fits in to Movie DC Superhero World just fine!

  27. This is exactly what Australia needs. A massive lift hill, long ride time, and just all out impressive. It would dominate the skyline. I also have no doubt it would draw the crowds in for a long time to come. Seriously hoping.
