  1. The whole area looks so different now, track everywhere! Looks great!

  2. Theming is being added to the temple structure. Looks like it's interior theming for the indoor scene Reverse view Also more track!

  5. I don't think any of those details have yet been confirmed by the park and there aren't any satellite images recent enough to be able to accurately measure the coasters length. I can't remember the source, but I believe the source is around 600-700 metres long (comparable to Motocoaster and Jet Rescue, but not those kind of speeds) and I'd suspect the ride time could be a couple of minutes because of the show scenes and the train using the inclined turntable a couple times.

  6. This is how Pico construct their theming. Once it's all in place, a team come in and fill all the gaps/patch the walls, paint and finish to match the rest of the exterior. Speeds up install times drastically.

  7. Some interesting photos from the former president of the park showing the special effect track "Sideway Drop Track" and the conditions inside the building.

  8. Intamin’s second ever Hot Racer (single rail coaster) has just opened at Walibi Rhone-Alpes in France. As we know, Intamin’s first attempt at this coaster model was the Big Dipper at Luna Park Sydney. For comparison, I don’t believe the Big Dippers height or length have ever been revealed, but Mahuka reaches a height of 18m, track length of 600m, has 3 inversions and reaches a speed of 67km/h. While Big Dipper has 2 inversions and reaches a speed of 72km/h. For those who have ridden Big Dipper, watching this POV of Mahuka, how does it compare in terms of its layout and what it has to offer?

  9. Haven't ridden (either), but from what I've heard from people that have ridden Big Dipper, it tends to run a bit rough. Don't know if that was an issue with the 'prototype' LPS got, or if it's due to it's location or another external factor, but the main thing I'm interested to hear about Mahuka is if that issue has persisted.

  11. With this wheel thing, yeah wouldn't it be a normal wheel during the day, then at night I guess you'd let people in, have a set number of bookings and some sort of flip down table in each gondola. You send people in, you get a few laps and a set menu, one course per revolution or something? Get the special events crew to ferry food across. Would be an interesting concept.

  12. Locals have no say anymore @themagician The temporary wheel was a great success and SW wanted to keep it but due to the town planning laws at that time, council wouldn't approve it. SW could build a strata coaster today with no problems, if they wanted to.

  13. So, what you’re saying is that you want VRTP to build a Ferris Wheel, either optionally or expressly as a food venue, perhaps adjacent but definitely not within Sea World? Like Skypoint, but in a worse location, at a higher cost, with less capacity & more operational issues? And this is being compared to a lot flume?

  14. Could be purely for expansion/contraction. Either way it will be fixed

  15. They do, but I’m sure there argument would be that Storm Coaster and Battle Boats ticks the water based ride box for their line up. What the park needs to do right now is make Trident and Vortex reliable because right now to amount of down time these rides have, they may as well not be there

  16. Quick update. As most would know, the general store signed facade has been painted white. I’m guessing this is to fit in with the toboggan ride which is normally in the area. I don’t have any pictures but check @ThemeparkOgre and @JaggsJourneys on YouTube they have good videos

  19. Beat me to it. Looks awesome, especially when you have a crap winter! Anyway, here's another POV: Also, five new coasters in NSW in three years is unheard of

  20. Some images from today: Motocoaster Jungle Rush Murrissipi Motors Judging by what I can see of Jungle Rush, both in person & through these photos, I think this is (roughly) what’s been constructed as of now: (green: track & supports, blue: notable ride hardware of some form) that means the track for the station, entrance into turntable, entrance into the station from final brake run, & maintenance bay are in, as well as the switch/transfer track between the 2 & the catwalk/main support structure for the turntable itself.

  21. @Tricoartnext time just say between the Sky Voyager & the Kebab Shop Ride. Nobody will have issues with that.

  22. From what I have heard, Splash Mountain is based on a controversial 1946 film “Song of the South” and there was a online petition to retheme the ride because of the racial stereotypes from the film it is based on.
