The Small Parks Thread

Recommended Posts

I love this thread. It makes me really excited to be a European enthusiast and I can’t wait to visit some of these more obscure parks  in the future.

Taiga hype:

Some drone footage. The top hat into the hill thing just looks lush

Speaking of Bobbejaanland, they've pulled a major wild card out of their hat with Fury

 

When Fury leaves the station, it makes its way to a turntable, which then spins to allign with the launch track. It then proceeds to do a swing launch (one forward launch, rolls back, then a backward launch, then a forward launch into the circuit). Fairly standard.

 

But it's been revealed that Fury will give riders the option to vote on whether the train itself will face forwards or backwards for the majority of the circuit. Each lapbar will have a button to choose forwards or backwards which must be pressed between leaving the station and before going on the turntable. Whichever way has the most votes 'wins'. If it's a tie, it's decided randomly.

 

It's a crazy idea, but I love it. And the idea itself is pretty cool and opens up so many more possibilities for coasters in the future!

The Polish Plopsa park, Majaland, have been making good progress with their woodie..

Pretty much a clone of Heidi at Plopsaland (which itself is pretty much a clone of White Lightning at Fun Spot, Orlando), and will be Poland's first woodie.

Fury at Bobbejaanland will be opening on June 22nd. Here's the state of it at the mo..

 

The park have also confirmed they will run the ride exclusively forwards for parts of each operating day, so people who don't want to ride backwards can happily ride..

Good to see another Mack opening. Because they are the best.

And it's what you've all been waiting for, a Taiga POV..

 

 

Today was the press event, with the ride opening tomorrow. Unsurprisingly, all reviews have been positive; good amounts of ejector airtime and some good intense moments. The stall inversion after the top hat looks bloody brilliant too.

 

And if that's not enough to whet your whistle, here's the beautiful advert...

 

Heading out here in September and I'm seriously hyped already 😍

Taiga looks unfortunately like a poor man's Helix based on the POV...

You say that like it's a bad thing? A poor man's Helix is still at least a good ride, possibly very good.

 

And supposedly this only cost half of what Helix cost (likely cos it isn't built on a massive hill), I'd still take that!
