    Cost vs benefit. It won't attract any more guests to the event as a whole, will cost more to run (staff, pumps), plus the hire of the lights and the angst of the neighbours.

    As I said, I have no actual idea, it's something I'm sure I saw on here once, thought someone may know tax law better than me ☺

    I meant to quote the "32 mill OMG" post. Shipping makes these rides dearer than an European install, of course.

    Not forgetting the shipping costs to get all of the parts here.

    I recall someone explaining once it is a tax depreciation thing? That is, they can claim the depreciation of the asset against their tax if it sits there, whereas if it is pulled down they loose that ability to claim. I'm no tax agent, so don't know if that is correct or not.

    From memory, and purely from memory, the gradient and curvature running in the opposite direction should be more gentle, than going the new route. Rocky Hollow is probably about the lowest point, with Main St being the highest. Train's run solid axle's typically, so tight corners both ascending and descending aren't a good thing. One wheel needs to slip to negotiate the curve, reducing the tractive effort (grip/traction). Flipping the train around would be the easiest and cheapest solution. And with all the cranes on site, it would be simple enough to do during construction of the coaster.

    There are scarier one's out there, just picked that one for the local aspect of it.

    Depends on how many it kills I guess. This one was at Roma Street Station in 1898.

    With their maintenance record, should they really be operating a pressure vessel full of water at around 180 degrees Celsius (150psi)?

    40 year old concrete won't be a challenge for modern drilling and pile driving.
  12. Is that what the Dippin Dots guy told you?

    Leviathan Construction Updates

    I recall them saying (I think with the world's biggest microphone) that additional steel was required for the coaster approval, to allow for storm/cyclone rating. Particularly the support that crosses the road. Of course the additional timber would stand out, particularly to enthusiasts.

    Wasn't Rivals built with additional structure for a storm/cyclone rating? This would be the same.
