Demon Re-construction

18 posts in this topic

Hey guys was checking out the re-construction photos of the demon on rcdb.com and I noticed something. Take a look at the photo, and look at the vertical loop. On the very top bit of track there appears to be a gap at both ends. Does anyone have any thoughs on this? I mean surely this has to be filled in somehow, but that section of track appears from what i can tell to be in its final resting place. ?????? http://www.rcdb.com/ig2953.htm?picture=8

It looks to me that the only piece missing is a section of the boomerang. I was going all misty looking at those photos. I'm not a fan of the paint job. Yellow looks like **** but at least they gave it one. It was nearly white again when Wonderland were finished with it. It's going to look like someone making a fruit salad when the red train starts rolling around the track.

Take a close look at the 2 rails of track, between the yellow and black sections on the loop. Same at the other end too only one rail is visable tho. :eek:

My mum told me not to do it as a kid... I can't see what you're talking about. It all looks in place to me old son, excluding the section of boomerang of course.

I noticed that aswell. I keep close tabs with Visionland on Construction, and Duane Marden of RCDB. He sends me stuff when it become avaliable. If you give me a couple of days, I will find out for you all. And will make a reply in here.

I remember Demon Being White. Always been white as far as I can tell. You know what I mean. Colours are as follows. Track is that yellowy colour. Pylons is that greeny colour. And the cars look almost new. I still reckon they were idiots putting it up half painted.

Here is Duane Mardens Response. I am currently awaiting a response from the park. So we will wait and see what the story is with them.

Hi Paul, That's going to make for a bumpy ride won't it? I would guess the connectors were damaged or not fitting well and are being replaced or modified. Notice the backbone couples are fitting together normally? On the ends of Vekoma track rails there are couplers that are basically cylinders cut in half lengthwise. The flat sides are put together and they are then bolted together. I'd guess they weren't fitting well and were taken off until fixed so not to slow construction down.

Looking through these pics here, http://www.rcdb.com/ig2953.htm?picture=8 I noticed there was a gap in the track near the top on the left hand side. What's the deal with this? Paul

I corrected myself smart arse. Like I say, I took my hand off it and presto. My vision became a little clearer :P Bring on the fruit salad. Which state is Visionland in anyway?

Poor Dan. I will toss up some fruity salad for you. Visionland from what I have seen is a great nice park. If I ever go into that area (Overseas if I think about it more) I will definatly be going there. But I doubt I will ever ride Zoomerang.

What's the go with the colour scheme? Did they run out of yellow paint and leave some sections black? Yellow, black and green remind me of a Caribbean country's flag. Maybe the people painting the track have been smoking some whacky tabbacy like the people from the country with those colours on the flag.
