  1. There was a guy sitting in the backwards row on that first day of testing:
  2. Nice pics @crowd That first drop looks insane so far!
  3. Here is the loop with the supports in place. Looks incredible!
  4. So the official colour according to the livestream is Fuchsia!
  5. @Brad2912 Is that last picture of the final brake run? Looks like a nice bit of airtime leading into it.
  6. They wouldn't let us take hats into the queue. Considering how unprotected the queue line is from the sun I thought it was a bit rough.
  7. I really wish our Aussie coasters would incorporate front-row queue lines. I noticed when I was in USA that many of their rides has a separate front queue. Always thought it would be a good idea here too.
  8. Longest would be Manta at Sea World Orlando, 2 hour wait not long after its grand opening. In Australia I've waited for superman on a public holiday for 1.5 hours. Not really that long but when they're only running one train it takes forever to move through the queue. Shortest would be heaps of walk-ons, Superman, Scooby, Batwing, WWF, TOTII, Claw, Buzzsaw, Cyclone, Jet Rescue ETC ETC ETC I love quiet weekdays, and the early entry at DW
  9. I'm a little confused as to where the ride exits then..? In regards to theming: at least they painted it the right colour!
  10. Do we know that this is the entrance? Makes more sense to be the exit ramp, with the entrance on the side with the stairs. I'm assuming we will see lots of switchbacks put in place around the lead up to those stairs...
  11. I'm interested to know what the piece is called too. From memory, it seems to rise up and up in pitch and never stop. I think that illusion is called a "shepherd tone".
  12. Ah I see, Beto Carrero is the name of the park… Damn his body flies through the air! Glad to hear he is without serious injury. Thanks for the other video
  13. I'm not sure where this is, but it looks like some sort of theme park. Can anyone shed some light on it? It's a pretty nasty looking crash.
  14. On our very first ride of Buzzsaw they sent us on 2 cycles. It was a busy day and the queue was in the big switchback section. I certainly wasn't expecting it! Heck, I'm not complaining…
  15. Please enlighten me? I didn't think that theme park accidents/deaths happened 'all the time'. Carnival and theme park rides are supposed to (and do) have excellent safety records...
  16. Are there lights on it to make it stand out after dark?

  18. Oops, sorry themeparkgc. Well spotted on the supports, I agree it looks like the XT150 is the likely model here. There go my hopes of some extra elements Yeah I will check nearmaps out, google earth has such old images whenever I look at theme parks.
  19. Here are some photos of the ride as well as a POV: article The section at the very start looks a bit like the beginning of Saw: the ride. Except I can't tell if there's an inversion in there. It's a bit different that the big lift hill is the SECOND part of the ride, after the initial dark bit and launch section… And that drop looks pretty steep in the video, I can imagine it would be insane to ride!
  20. Hey Gazza, where did you get that aerial picture from? I'm looking at google earth and it's showing a shot from 2008
  21. I think a flying coaster would really 'take off' in the Australian market ('scuse the pun)
