  1. Anyone else reckon it was a nod to prior big dipper to have a loop and sidewinder in the same spot? Re future expansion, i wonder what the chances are of expanding onto a deck over the water adjacent to the family shuttle coaster? They could also eventually turn the Big Top into a new all weather ride hall....
  2. Is anyone close enough to get a photo of this one?
  3. @HussRainbow87 Actually I did notice that yesterday. I get you're a Huss fan, but to be honest its coming across like Pushbutton when he was "It's not a monorail or a dark ride therefore ill turn my nose up" As @joz said, the Intamin launch coaster would be worth a trip alone, I don't think the capacity will be a problem. GL and Abyss run with 8 person trains at short intervals so therefore a 7 seater at a park that is less peaky like LPS should be fine. Objectivley, for a constrained park they've picked a good balanced selection of rides that will be popular with the public. Signature big impressive flat ride, good launch coaster, good family shuttle and a decent kiddyland. The park has had an over reliance on spin and spew rides until now. I think the only thing missing is some sort of water ride, but that could come in the future.
  4. I didn't even notice the counterweight on the Sledgehammer ride till now, looks like it's the 360 inverting version like the paperweight at Aussie World / Stratosfear at Rainbows End. https://www.parkz.com.au/photo/14762-Stratosfear/gallery/sort/newest/location/ride-2863-Stratosfear/offset/2
  5. I've been on Gipfelsturmer back in 2018 https://www.parkz.com.au/parks/DE/Ruhpolding/Freizeitpark_Ruhpolding/ride/4157-Gipfelstrmer It's actually slightly wild for a family coaster, very forceful first turn and transitions. I thought it was better than a regular roller-skater of Roadrunners ilk.
  6. So to summarise the 9 new rides, it looks like. 1-Intamin Hot Racer 2-Gerstlauer Family Shuttle 3-L&T Mini Coaster 4-Samba Balloon 5-Zamperla Discovery Revolution. 6-Midi Ferris Wheel 7-Crazy Submarine 8-Bounce Around 9-Jumpin Tower 16 Am also looking forward to riding "Commercial Building"
  7. Also. Australia has too many Gyro Swings. Please eliminate three. I am not a crackpot.
  8. Holy crap, good work LPS, very happy to see this! Overall a good layout, particularly towards the end, i would have liked to have seen them spice up the bit between the first and 2nd launch, eg slightly more aggressive hills, and a wavy launch track as seen on Pantheon. The 2nd largest coaster appears to be a Gerstlauer family shuttle coaster, and there also appears to be a clone of Klein Tsar / Veggie Tales Sideshow Spin: Good choices all around!

    Have a loading point like on Supertubes at WWW or the Breakers at RWS. A short belt that pushes rafts in. Many manufacturers offer this as an option. IMO if i had a park i'd make it the standard on anything involving a raft.

    New Roller-Coaster for Dreamworld

    They'll just punch straight through them with any piling. The project team would be well aware of what structures used to be on the site. And the park has done this before, eg Whitewater World was built on the site of thunderbolt, which had all its footings. Also, Cyclone was built on an old road. Also, motocoaster was built on the old roadways for Model T lane.

    So, what's the problem then?

    You wouldn't create one though from scratch you'd just find a 3d film relevant to the event.

    Hey didn't they show Polar Express specific to WC, and that Freddie V Jason kills one specific to FN? Therefore it stands to reason they could do it for this.
  15. Lolwut, it's not sad at all. The current crop "DC Rivals" style coasters seen at more and more parks are way better than the one time record breakers. Superman Escape from Krypton is not better than Tatsu or Twisted Collossus. Steel Curtain is better than Phantoms Revenge Steel Vengeance is better than Top Thrill Dragter or Milllennium Force. Takabisha is better than Fujiyama. Dreamworlds new coaster will be better than TOT (Having ridden Blue Fire) The problem I find is so much cost goes into creating the record breaking aspect that the rest of the ride suffers.
