Lovely shot of Barracuda. Looks like some themeing for the lift hill is going in.
The park looks almost done now as well so fingers crossed we will see some soft openings in the not too distant future.
Rcdb lists the 4 Evergrande parks we know are getting coasters. I have at least 15 bookmarked on Google Earth being partly under construction. Everywhere from Wuhan to Shanghai had parks in various stages of construction.
Unfortunately I can't see any of these beyond the most complete ones...
You also have a point though. Those first photos show the ride over the midway. The latest batch showing that tilted helix and subsequent hill are not over the midway so there's less of a reason for them not to reach ground level. It's almost as if they've raised the whole ride by a few meters...
A construction update. Most of the first part of the ride except oddly the first drop is now up.
If you're wondering why the pullouts are so high above ground level it's because this sections will run through the canopy above the park entrance area over loads of paths.
I have to commend the park for adding anything to be honest. Despite the news of the loss of one of their classic rides soon.
The Japanese Park scene is in a bad place with only a few parks able to add new rides of any significance.
I think it's @Pokemaniac who often talks about the way...
I'd argue to a certain extent B&M's breakthrough was more Kumba than Batman. Batman sure was revolutionary but Kumba blew the market wide open
Kumba was a complete revolution of the standard looping coaster at the time. For years Arrow had dominated the market but seemed stuck in a bit of a...
I imagine it will just be classed as sitdown as it is a sitdown riding position. its just really got taller cars.
Similar to how the SFX coasters are classed as sitdown but are under the Model Line SFX Coaster
Officially the inversion is 197ft I think. Which beats the inversion on Falcon at Sunac Wuxi by a whole 0.1 of a foot.
Nothing like scraping the record by the tiniest of margins.
I guess that list is a little old as Gatekeeper isn't even the tallest wing coaster with a dive drop. As mentioned...
Worryingly yes. There was an almost identical accident in the same model ride at Imagica back in 2014.
Considering there's only 3 of this model the fact that 2 of them have detailed is a...
