Richard Bannister has taken his camera to yet another obscure country, capturing some parks that most readers will never see in real life. Enjoy a virtual tour of the colourful Mundo Petapa and the beautifully themed Xetulul, as well as a brief look at a shopping mall coaster in Galerias Primma.
I can't believe there is a Voltron roller coaster, and I didn't know. I'm so there.
Not really, but hooray for really old licensing!
Does it fly off the track and merge into a giant robot?
I loved watching Voltron when I was a kid. I remember when I was in grade school, one of the kids in my class brought in the fully assembled Voltron Robot. That thing was huge. I can't believe his parents let him take it to school. I wonder if they knew he took it out onto the playground (asphalt parking lot).Last edited by Jason Hammond, Monday, December 13, 2010 4:30 PM
I had a die-cast Votron toy when I was a kid. Five awesome lions that you could put together to become Voltron! Kids these days just know it as Power Rangers, but I knew the original. :)
There are so many amazing properties that would be great park theming, but they never materialize. I still want to see a Nintendo-themed park, with Mario, Luigi, Wario, Yoshi, Donkey and Diddy Kong, Princess Zelda, Link, Metroid, and the rest. It would be pure magic, and would probably be more popular than Legoland.
I still want a Donkey Kong Country themed mine cart coaster.
It's actually really good, too.
I have the DVD's in the metal containers, one for each lion. I'll probably never watch them, but it's still cool to say that I have them.
