gets my vote.
Looks like someone found an empty field and decided that it would be a good place to set up a travelling coaster.
And yes... its a slow day at the office.

The location makes me wonder: did the park put that "car-wreck simulator" out there in the field so no one would hear the pain-induced screams of the riders after they finish that mega helix? I remember the shock I was in after I rode one for the first time. Bang. Bang. Slam. Bang. Brake. Ouch.

And a Toboggan yet at that.
Interesting name for the coaster too...
If all of the Toboggan coasters ever built were launched into deep space or relocated to the desert wastes of Tatooine, they would still not be far enough away for my liking.
Did they stick with the
Star Wars theme by naming the cars Death Car I, Death Car II, and Death Car III? Fitting and very descriptive names for Toboggan cars if you ask me.

According to RCDB they have four steel coasters included a suspended. But yeah, that does look odd sitting out there.

I still freaked when I saw it thinking that it had a SPIRAL lift like Whizzer and then a death drop!!
Crazy, but my D.A. would ride it. ;)

Cripes... all those coasters look pretty lonely (see
I imagine Aerocity Parc will not be rivalling BGW for best atmosphere.

"Welcome to our theme park"
"What's the theme?"
I'm assuming it's just the angle the pics are taken at, but that's pretty crazy that you can make
every coaster look like it's in the middle of nowhere.

That might make it a little
less painful for an adult rider...

having been on this ride i can say that it really is a lonely coaster, it goes about 2kilometers away from the rest of the park and there is nothing near by at all.

That suspended coaster looks kinda boring- just a bunch of wide turns that zig-zag back and forth. And that kiddie coaster looks like it was built on top of a building that was bulldozed.
Aesthetics aren't high on this park's list of priorities, I guess.

Looks like someone's been playing way too much RCT.

I don't know, I'm kinda fascinated by the place. It kinda seems like a bad dream or something. I'd like to visit.

Is that a giant slide next to the ride? That looks like more fun than the coaster.

Taking Gonchar's idea, the park could have themed sections, one for each coaster:

Oohhh! Desecration! That's my kind of theme park.

I thought the Four Horsemen were Pestilence, Famine, War, and Death....oh wait, wrong park...;)

You could put all those happy named rct coasters in it.
