WBMW: Madrid Questions

Wednesday, December 25, 2002 4:03 PM

I don't know what other people think, but this park looks awesome! They have everything a park needs, and just opened this year. Has anyone been, if so, what do you think about this park? Worth a visit?

Also, Superman looks awsome, but what about Stunt Fall? It is the same coaster as Deja Vu, right? So, do they have troubles like the other parks have? A lot of valleys, downtime, delayed opening? And, Wild Wild West looks awesome also. I want to go awfully bad!

It does look like an amazing park. I have some post cards from the park which are really neat. I have never been there but WWW looks awesome. Theres a clone of it at WBW Germany but its not like anyone on this site rode that anyway so it doesn't matter. Batman must be really fun because I rode the one at SFGADv and its awesome. Superman looks really neat to. I heard its a clone of Medusa at SFMW but I'm not sure because I'm only familar with the SFGADv one. There similar anyway. Stuntfall is the same as Deja Vu but it hasn't had any problems because instead of opening in 2001 they waited until 02 so it has ran problem free. I hope I get to this park someday.

Superman: Ride of Steel isn't anything close to Medusa at SFMW, it is an original design.

From what I've heard, there have been some problems with Stunt Fall, but not as many as the Deja Vu's.

Finally, Omaha is getting a theme park! *thanks the Lord*

I went this year. I had high expectations, but Movie World far exceeded them. In the end, I spent three full days there, one taking photos all of which I lost when my camera was stolen!

They do a two-day pass, and it is absolutely possible to stay there for at least two days, even when quiet. It's also really easy to get to from the centre of Madrid.


Also, Superman looks awsome, but what about Stunt Fall? It is the same coaster as Deja Vu, right? So, do they have troubles like the other parks have?

Superman is a really, really good ride. I have a review on my website if you're interested. It also has a copy of Batman: The Ride with some of the best queue line theming I've seen in Europe. It really brings the ride head and shoulders above the other Batman.

They have Stuntfall. It hasn't got any evacuation platforms on it, so it only takes a breeze on the moon for them to shut the ride. It seemed to be quite reliable mechanically, though. It was the last ride to open, but it was also late being installed.


And, Wild Wild West looks awesome also

It doesn't deliver though. It is the most forceless wooden roller coaster I've ever ridden. It isn't a bad ride, but there isn't much good about it - lots of banked turns and no drops what-so-ever. The queueline theming is good, again, though.

I'll summerise what I liked - and disliked.

I really like:

1. The staff. Really polite.
2. Theming. In places, it is fantastic.
3. Layout. It's not a circular path (like Islands), but seems to be well laid out
4. Amount of restaurants. There are loads, especially around Hollywood
5. Queues. All are covered or often enclosed

Things that could be improved:

1. You cannot queue for the front/back for rides like Batman or Superman
2. Not any good dark rides. Only an average simulator (Batman themed) and a bad Vekoma Mad House

Fantastic rides:

Superman
Batman

Good rides:

Stunt Fall
El Rio Bravo (Log Flume)
ACME Rafting (Rapids)
Riddler's Revenge (S&S Combo)

Average rides:

Wild Wild West
Batman simulator
Mad House (forgotten the name)

It's a really good park, their staff needs to learn English though (We only found 2 people who spoke English & there's only one restaurant with an English menu). Stunt Fall & Rio Grande weren't open yet when we were there :(. Wild Wild West & Batman are great, Superman is ok the trims wrecked it. In the future they should add some dark rides...

About everything has been said. I just want to add that a certain operator at Batman refused to let us ride our 8th ride in a row because of "health reasons". This kind of demonstrates the huge crowds we met at the park.

You do want to speak a few words of Spanish if you go wandering of there. Barely anyone there speaks English, even though they all clame to. :|

The park is nice, large, and has some quality rides. You might want to take in consideration that the temperature in the park can get as high as 45 to 50 degrees Celsius, which is pretty unbarable. So if you don't need to be in the park during July and August, don't go. When I visited, all water-effects had to be turned off in the afternoon due to the high temperatures. The park is located in the middle of a desert..

Warner Bros Park (as it is called in Spain) is definately the best thrill park of Europe!

The thought of re-riding Batman didn't even occour to me and the staff actually asked whether we'd like to stay on. Naturally we did and ended up staying on the ride for about 30 minutes.

Regarding the trims on Superman, I heard them trim the train, but they didn't really seem to make any difference. The ride offers two insane moments of airtime (three if you're in the back) and some great helixes - none seem to be lacking due to the trims.

Wild Wild West was a really odd coaster. I couldn't get into it unfortunately. It goes to show, though, that by you not liking Superman and me being non-plused by Wild Wild West that Movie World has a great selection of coasters and should appeal whatever your taste.

Anders I have to disagree. Superman is totally awesome from beginning to end. What, you didn´t like the huge vertical loop into the immelman, or the zero-g roll - boomerang -airtime hill!?! Superman is a reason in itself to go to WBMW. I only hope that SFMM Scream! will, dare I say, be a Superman "clone", and then everyone in the USA will know how great a coaster can be!

I liked the drop, loop, immelman and the helixes. I just didn't like the aspect that it wasn't intense at all (EXCEPT for the drop and at the photopoint)
