Large Spanish park update added to One Click

Posted Thursday, December 18, 2003 9:17 AM | Contributed by Chris One Click

One Click has been updated with a brand new Port Aventura Gallery, that includes fab pics of Dragon Khan and Stampida. Parque de Atracciones Madrid has also been added which features Tornado, the Intamin invert.

There are three new videos of the above rides (note that park permission was obtained prior to shooting these clips).

Dont forgot to view our Warner Brother Move World Madrid gallery, which was updated last Month.

Nice vids and pictures, looks like you got better weather than I did when I went last month.

By the way, who did you get permission off to video on the rides, because I sure as hell couldn't get any, and the park is very strict on enforcing safety regulations.

Thanks. I showed each ride operator that the camera was securly strapped to my wrist and they were fine. I could not get permission to do POV on Tornado at PAM. Anyway, what awesome rides Spain has...

Great pics & site. Always interesting to see what's going on around the world.

Not that it really matters, but there are some strange looking supports (and lots of them) on the vertical loops of "Tornado" at Parque de Atracciones Madrid.

When compared to the B&M's near invisible supports for vertical loops, kinda makes me wonder why Intamin designed 'em that way....

^Those supports do really look weird. I have no clue why they did this. I don´t think that Madrid is in an earthquake zone.
However, if you look at the supports of the other Intamin inverter, also called Tornado inärkänniemi, Finland, you´ll notice that they found a way to save some steel.
