That's a great location for Zoomerang on the hill by Rampage. It will be visible from everywhere in the park I imagine.
"An Australian technician will accompany the coaster to Visionland and supervise the construction of the new steel coaster. He will remain at the park for several months after the ride is inaugurated." I found that interesting. It seems like Visionland could handle that by themselves.
I still think my entry name of Vulcan's Fury (named after the Roman god of the forge or fire for which Birmingham's steel and iron industry was well known) is a better name than Zoomerang. If you've ever driven through Birmingham, you've probably noticed the huge iron statue of Vulcan on top of Red Mountain originally built for the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Anyway, I guess Visionland wanted to save that name for their hyper one day. ;-)
Mamoosh said: That piece of black track is used in the station. ONLY the track in the station will be black. Its not uncommon.
If you look in picture three you can clearly see a piece of curved black track to the left of the two curved yellow pieces and in picture five you can see a piece of the black track installed in the curve into the cobra roll.
Bosshawk, what makes you so certain??? Are most boomerang coasters one color?
BTW, thrillerman1 I like that hope about the hyper coaster. Adding one of those would definitely put Visionland out there especially for fans like myself. *** Edited 3/13/2005 2:06:02 AM UTC by Godsentone***
I absolutely guarantee the coaster will be yellow. The train will be red. Some of the pieces just weren't painted until being erected. I took pictures on Friday that show some erected pieces in the process of being painted.
Really can't comment on problems yet as far as operation since it is still under construction. Other than a few site problems, the construction has been fairly smooth. The steel erection is going rather quickly, I expect that portion to be completed within a couple of weeks.
As far as theming, I am not sure at this point. I wouldn't expect much in the way of elaborate theming.
When I say theming, I ask if it will be like what the Demon Previously had. Basically just the ride, in a decent garden, in a Transilvanian Area, or what rides basically have these days, like an interactive queue and all?
I highly doubt there will be anything like that. Itwill basically just be the coaster and a station. Hopefully there will be more, but I doubt it. This is still a small park and this is a major capital investment.
