Flamingo Land

Recommended Posts

If this really has cost Flamingoland £20 million then they have well and truely had their pants pulled down. Good to see this park get a new coaster but £20 million for a clone of Colossus is them being taken to the cleaners given you could get a Mack multi launch, a GCI woody or an RMC for that figure. Whoever sold this to Flamingoland is laughing all the way to the bank.

 

Still, this from the same park that thought Hero would be a good idea!!....

The £18 million is going on theming to fully enclose the ride so it feels like you are actually at THORPE PARK whilst at Flamingo Land. Evidently, it isn't cheap to recreate the back of XNWO's building and fill a pit with concrete, whilst also creating a lake with a SBNO old boat-come-scare maze.

So they aren't repainting it then?

Unknown. Plans obviously said it would be silver/grey, but I don't know how strict they have to be to that.

 

I certainly would have thought it was easier to paint it before erecting it but who knows.

 

I do hope they clean it if they don't paint it though..

It doesn't look as tall as Colossus.  Weird.

 

The joy of having a fully fledged pathway underneath the ride, rather than a grassy field...

 

Hopefully I'll be able to attend the opening day for this...

Apparently there's been issues with groundworks and the placement of footers, specifically around the cobra roll, which is causing a sizeable delay to construction.

 

What this means in terms of opening remains to be seen...

Ok. Who wants to play the odds. Which will open first, this, or F.L.Y.

You could have a 3-way race with Mission Ferrari in Abu Dhabi tbf

 

Not that it matters, because Energylandia will have built 5 coasters, 2 cheap flats and a dozen kids rides by the time any of them open
