    Although, that looks insanely well themed for a random Asian park, and looks like a really, really good layout.

    I wasn't really sure where to post this, but this thread seemed like the best bet...

    So, anyone fancy riding a bike down Depth Charge and Storm Surge at Thorpe Park?

    GOOD LORD. THAT LOOKS SO EXTREMELY PAINFUL.

    I mountain bike weekly, and rely heavily on my bike suspension to take most of the force of landing for me, but on a solid frame like that roadie...my knees already hurt. Mad props to him.

    This is the economic crisis for everyone... Even this wheel at Taïwan:


    That's a heck of a long jack over here! And it seems to be the way the car is lifted up. How weird..

    Well, this Ferris Wheel ist just strange... maybe all other cabins just fell off and no one cares to bolt new ones.
    This droptower doesn't look thrilling at all, to me it looks like the braking fins just start almost imediately under the top of the tower. Well, and the ferris

    I have no idea what happened on that wheel!
    Those are not braking fins on the tower, though. I heard that there is a tilt effect, so I guess it's a mechanism for that. Kinda like a 4th Dimension. :)

    Here's another clearance fail edit: Dreamcatcher, Bobbejaanland - @2:07; presumably because of the car swing on the brakes.

    Make it symmetrical. It's just the angle that makes it look like that side is the only one with the bump.

    Wait, it's worst than just a creepy looking loop! LOOK :


    Aaaaaaaaaaargh! Wow wow argh ouch ow ow!! It's a Cool'n'Fresh on acid! :O

    It was build by a Chinese knock-off company named JuMa (Giant Horse) : Click


    EDIT: From the same manufacturer, this one ("The monocyclic ring roller coaster") seems to have a rather interesting layout for a jet coaster:

    The loops are way too wide, I mean, not like Arrow tunnel tested ...

    Anyone else think that POV of Dragon makes the ride look pretty smooth?
    • CommentAuthorElvenage
    • CommentTimeDec 22nd 2013
     
    Not really, lol. It looks fairly painful and awkward to ride. Also not 100% on some of the support and track clearances.



    Apparently this ride wasn't always so glamorous.

    lujach, I dont think the one I posted is quite Intamin, and I am fully aware of that coaster style.

    Well, I would agree that this doesn't look exactly like Intamin, my post aimed at the fact that this one looks like a really cheap copy of Intamin's concept.

    Another case of "oops, too close" on Tulireki :



    And since we're talking about Mack e-motion coasters (yes we are), here's a rare video (+POV) of the other one, Reaper, Drop ride to doom, located inside the Amsterdam Dungeon.

    Did you know that Hansixx works for the chinese manufacturer Shibaolai (SBL)? At least that what we can imagine while you see that on their website!!



    It's Hi Octane from the NL1.7 update!

    They also make that strange ride, but for once it's original and *maybe* interesting:




    And sorry, but I lost it when I saw their Big Apple duplicate...




    :D !

    Seriously, their website worth a visit: Click

    Aren't they the ones who were removed from IAAPA two years ago?

    Also, I have this theory about knockoff companies. The parks in Asia who are really small, don't have a lot of money, and want a decent sized roller coaster can't afford to have a big name roller coaster and import it overseas. So they go to these knockoff companies who sell the big name type roller coasters, only for much less and without importing costs.

    Everyone knows about the groove in the support on the overbanked turn on Millennium Force, but check out the support halfway down the first drop on this Vekoma SLC.

    I remember that. Its like, why even leave it there? just refab a new support thats not too close and put it back in there.
