  2. Looking great. As for the height, being body slides the tower does not need to be a massive structure. Shorter tower allows people to traverse the tower multiple times without feeling as winded at the taller towers.

    Tower of Terror 2 closing

    In a typical ride operator fashion when a ride is near its end of life you want to try and kill it. Just hold out until I get one more run.

    Luna Park Sydney's expansion

    Spider is nearing the end of its life. The main central hubs for the arms have been kept in good condition and it tells when you ride it. But I think the sea air is getting to it now. Ranger mechanically is not that complicated. But its the fact it is old. It has suffered some issues during its time. I see this ride retiring at the park and it will be scrapped. I didn't sell in my eyes for a reason. It's due to all the modifications it had. Tumble bug won't see a life beyond the park either. Dodgems havent had a change at all. Even the transformer that runs them is the same from the late 80's I think. Most of these rides have been in the park since the mid-'90s. So in a way, if they go its a good thing. They served their purpose.

    Luna Park Sydney's expansion

    Travelling kiddy pirate ship was in that location. Was on loan from Joyland's. Breakdance and Ranger are both showing really old age. Both have been in Brisbane together for Expo 88 and have had a decent run here in Sydney. But its time for a good quality replacement.
  9. Those translucent sections will be awesome. I know of another water park that has these sections and they do add the to the sensation of speed.

    I hope so!.
  11. Why do I keep doing this!.
  12. So it should look fully sick @Slick 😉
  13. Speed depends on many things, Weight of guest, body slide (what kind of board shorts are being worn etc), inflation of raft and litres per second coming out the outlet jet. Body slides tend to feel faster because you are more enclosed due to the smaller nature of the flume. Proslide predominantly use rafts. Polin slides should still pack a punch or two.
