The world is getting closer and closer to the debut of RMC's first Raptor Track coaster. Wonder woman Golden Lasso Coaster at Fiesta Texas is scheduled to have a media date of April 24th, and open to the general public on April 28th. Above we get a close-up of a finished train, and it is looking good!
Darien Lake is showing off the train design for Tantrum. The park has yet to announce an opening date for the ride.
They are still receiving final shipments of parts, and groundwork is still being finished up with the footers and paths. Only a couple of support beams are vertical at this point.
Thorpe Park opens Walking Dead Coaster
Thorpe Park has opened their rethemed version of X: No Way Out the other day. Initial thoughts from the public are that the ride was rushed, and does not improve over the original ride in any way. While the preshow and queue areas are well done, the ride itself did not change much. Not many effects or memorable moments were added. It seems like this was more of a project to get a quick flip on the popular franchise, although a rumored 20 million pounds was spent on it, and not much work was done.
Knott's Hangtime continues testing
Hangtime was never able to make its March 31st deadline, but work is continuing to be done at a rapid rate. As shown by this screengrab of the park's webcam, all of the ride's lights are now operating and look stunning. The ride's queue and surrounding areas are still being worked on with shade structures being added, and the ride itself continues cycling until it will finally be opened.
Darien Lake receives first Tantrum pieces
Darien Lake is finally showing off their first track segment and support columns arriving for Tantrum, a new Gerstlauer Eurofighter. While the ride is a bit behind schedule due to weather, groundwork is complete and ready to begin building the track. The ride will not be ready for opening weekend, but by Memorial Day weekend is a good aim for this to open up.
