Jeff's avatar Wow, that spinning coaster is nuts. I've seen the model for that at IAAPA the last few years (or similar concepts) and can't understand why US parks won't buy these things.

The London Eye is fascinating. There was a documentary recently on its construction on Discovery or one of the cable networks. So what's the story with it now? There appeared to be a lot of mixed feelings about the thing. Will it stay or go?

DELETED! What time does the water show start?

Well, only three parks have purchased one so far and one is in the US.

LOL, we have tons of them in Europe. Including a dueling versions, with vertical lifts, many tilting-segments (both forwards and sideways) and indoor !
Funfairs have them too.

Six Flags Magic Mountain should build one, another new ride, unique design (both mouse and spinning) and it'll take the coaster count up.

With a price tag of only $3,000,000, I could see this being a wise investment for a small or large park.

Very nice photos, by the way.
