    Looks like the old Mexican hat ride with outward facing seats

    I don't think I've seen this one in here before?

    Not sure where else to put this, but Intamin recently debuted a new-gen Inpulse Coaster model... with LAP BARS! :eek:

    I hope this will mean we start to see lap bars on standard inverted coasters. I think it's the only type of coaster that doesn't have lap bars now and could feasibly have lap bars.

    Similar frame to the Mojo ride. One of which travels Yorkshire.

    I don't know what to say :laughing:

    Glass?!
    3.8km apparently.

    I was going to comment on the woefully short video you chose to post but (in 2 minutes of searching) I actually cannot find any other media on this ride! It's been open a month!

    Good find.

    There are a few of these springing up, but the above seems to be the longest

    I've lost track of which rides have and haven't been mentioned. Has anyone mentioned Crazy Bulls?

    I’m fairly sure I remember one of those (or something similar) at Coney Beach in Porthcawl years ago! I’m going to have to go on an internet scour now hah

    Looks incredible but given a seemingly high number of "Chinese Glass Cracks" attraction articles and the lack of something stopping the boat going over the sides (Besides the flimsy rope net on corners), I'll hold the bags :D

    Why are the ride cars like DeLorians?
    Why are so many things behind perspex?
    Another Trommel tunnel that isn't working.

    Makes the lighting on Duel look good at least.
