  1. Tilikum has died: http://news.sky.com/story/tilikum-orca-that-killed-seaworld-orlando-trainer-dies-10719977
  2. By the looks of it, hulks Technical Rehearsals started yesterday and seem to running smoothly!
  3. The Hulk entrance looks just about finished... Images from http://orlandounited.com/ Not gonna lie the statue itself looks a little underwhelming compared.
  4. The Hulk's entrance has started construction:
  5. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jun/22/teenagers-4am-joyride-blackpool-rollercoaster-blue-flyer?campaign_id=A100&campaign_type=Email hehe
  6. Indeed the walls are down! Here's some pictures and a video from Attractions Magazine: https://www.facebook.com/attractionsmagazine/videos/10154194682864330/
  7. As Stealths wheels heat up, the train moves faster around the circuit. By "opening later" they are essentially delaying the amount of time it takes for the wheels to over heat. Stealth in hot weather will shut down due to an over speed error message at least once an hour on days in excess of 25 degrees Celsius between the times of 12pm and 4pm. Back in the days when I worked on it the average time it took to complete the circuit was around 17/18 seconds, in the extreme summer heat it would go as low as 11/12seconds.
  8. Judging by what the park are saying in the video, they aren't expecting Hulk to open until the end of Summer.
  9. Interesting little video from Universal!
  10. A fair amount of the rides at TP close due to high winds, most rides have variations on wind speed but you'd be surprised.
  11. ^ I am sure the twigs they have conveniently planted will do wonders covering it up, in maybe 10 to 15 years. Almost as amazing as the twigs they planted under Storm Surge... Oh wait... they never grew.
  12. *yawn* I am 100% certain Mike was sat in his office during the winter and said "You know guys, I think we should keep Colossus on 1 train for a while. Especially over the Easter Period, what a fantastic idea!" Good God Get a Grip Girl... Some things are beyond anybody's control, stop whining about something that was probably not preventable.
  13. You find Stealth rough? Boy you must have a swell time on Saw....
