Coaster Kingdom has added a huge review and photo tour of Movie World Madrid, the new Warner Bros. park in Spain. The review includes summaries of the main rides and attractions, a guide to getting to the park as well as our photo tour which captures the atmosphere of this excellent park. Along with this review, there are extensive reviews of: Batman La Fuga (B&M Inverted), Stunt Fall (Vekoma Super-Invertigo), Riddlers' Revenge (S&S Combo Tower), Superman: Ride of Steel (B&M Floorless) and Wild Wild West (Intamin/RCCA Wooden).

It's "Giant Inverted Boomerang", not Super Invertigo.

But a nice review anyway...like usual ;-)

Thanks for the comments. Maybe 'Super Invertigo' was a term coined by enthusiasts. I have certainly seen it called that (although the smaller inverted Boomerang is an Invertigo I note, which could be where the term came from).

I just checked on the Vekoma site, though, and you're correct. Thanks!

Ofcourse I'm right ;-)
I'm probably the only one on this site who has been inside the Vekoma factory. Already twice. Expedition Everest is looking good so far...

But again, great review(s). I like the new style of the site, the "themed reviews" ;-)

Great site!

I've never looked at it before, and am equally impressed by the content and the look. Nice job.

Belgian,

I did a Vekoma factory tour a few years ago with the ECC. It was really interesting. Things of note I saw were a complete top of the first two inversions on an SLC (so big when you're close up), a launch car from a LSM coaster (Rock 'N Roller at Disney Studios) and some themed cars from a Roller Skater.

It was a really fun tour, and Vekoma were really welcoming. Also saw Hammerhead Stall in their test facility.

Thanks for the comments on my reviews/sites - thanks also Chris. I enjoy doing them and am glad you enjoy reading them.

I'm sad...i'm not the only one anymore. ;-)

Just kidding, they are very friendly and tell many interesting things. During my last visit I saw a nearly-finished train of the new Space Mountain for Hong Kong Disneyland, as well as a 1:1 model of a Expedition Everest coach.
They were also working on the track for Space Mountain, as well as Oki Doki, the new junior coaster for Bobbejaanland.
They showed some new concepts, such as a brandnew suspended swinging coaster and a family launched coaster. Also bigger and meaner tiltcoasters are available and a new flying coaster is coming up.

I'm glad you like making the pages so nice, it's a good sign towards the future. :-)

Well done with the reviews. I'll join Chris with this one. You've got some fantastic, well-written content, and it's good to see you've done some good research before putting pen to paper (so to speak) - if there's one thing I like, and that's going off at tangents. I really like your introductions... for once we don't need to hear the stats of the ride in the opening sentences. :)
