launched coaster

Chris ragging on you for your love of roller coasters- Chris: "Babe, I've been launched into space. There is no bigger thrill than that." But then whenever you guys go to an amusement park, his inner thrill junkie comes out and is screaming right next to you. You two love to coordinate silly photo shots and take bets on who is going to keep their hands up the longest

okay but hear me out, he proposes to you just before you get launched on a roller coaster, with a very tight grip on the ring of course

If you’ve ever wanted to ride a roller coaster featuring Daft Punk music and you live in China, you’re in luck! TRON Lightcycle Power Run at the new Shanghai Disneyland is a motorbike launched coaster by Vekoma with music by our favorite robots!

Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic: Future World

I enjoyed the theme of this very much, this is the first Park with an alien themed landscape, and I think there’s a lot you can do with a park like this. I took the flat land as an opportunity to build some giant coasters that I normally wouldn’t build in a hilly park, and I think I kind of diverged away from the alien theme and sort of made it a space theme instead.

My favorite pair of coasters in this park are a pair of dueling launched twister coasters, I basically just kept building and building until I had this tangle of track that was very hard to follow. The coasters names are Nectar and Pollen, kind of going with the Martian plant theme that the park gave us. I also build a long out and back hyper coaster that goes from one corner of the park to the other, as well as a flying coaster over a man made lake I made in one of the craters.

This park was really fun to build and to detail in a way that I haven’t in some of the other parks, I think just spent a lot more time making this park look nice because there are no trees to fill in the space so I had to get creative with the theme. A really fun solid park, I finished with 16 rides including 7 coasters.

Time for a Concept art Breakdown of the new Toy Story Playland headed to Hollywood Studios.

First up the Slinky Dog coaster! Which is indeed a LAUNCH COASTER. As you can see it isn’t so bare bones as some might claim. There is quite a big of themeing going on here that makes this coaster look like something Bonnie set up in her room! Plus some nice characters can be found here, Rex, Jessie, the army man, and the pixar ball! Overall this looks like a pretty solid family D ticket.

Next is the green man attraction! While we can’t see much we can see the queue area to the left (which looks like the packaging for a Buzz lightyear toy). And buzz is there to greet folks on the way in too! As for the ride looking at it close up makes the ride system look like Mater’s jamboree. Either that or the new dancing car attraction that is headed to DCA at luigi’s. Time will tell, but for now it’s a cute area. 

Now this area is interesting. So I have a couple theories here. But I will start with the obvious stuff first and that is the fact that there is going to be a quick service restaurant here given the orange building on the left and the outdoor seating. Now the interesting part is what on earth is the building with the board game on top of it? So it’s either A. A new sit down restaurant or a merch store?B. A backstage building that is just being themed.

Now this corner tells me I was right about my quess a while back. And that is that Toy Story Midway Mania is going to get a new entrance. And it’s now going to be appropriately in this new land. Here’s why the likelihood of that is high. 1. They are dying to get rid of the overall studio theme to the park, so killing pixar place and instead making a full on toy story land is a no brainer. 2. Whenever fireworks happen the entire street in which midway mania is located on must be empty and closed due to fall out. But if you move the entrance to toy storyland (which should be where the backlot currently is). Then you wouldn’t need to worry about firework fallout!  

This is the entrance to the land and it holds a lot of cool details. For one that building on the left is undeniably Al’s Toy barn. So this means we are for sure getting a toy story dedicated merch shop! Which makes me wonder what building it’s going to be housed in. Someone on WDWmagic mentioned that the barn is actually in the location of One man’s dream which would make a lot of sense. The buildings on the right seem to be dedicate to SHERIFF WOODY which makes me think that they could be carnival games or even old style shooting arcades? Either way they aren’t there for just decoration! 

SO all in all there is definitely some nice detail going into this land that leaves me satisfied with the concept. What do you guys think? As always thank for reading and If liked this post be sure to hit that heart button!

I just wanted to share my friend's coming out story because I think it'll make you guys smile; we were at Hershey Park yesterday, and I was freaking out because he made me go on Storm Runner, a roller coaster that launches you forward at like 50 mph. I said to him, "If I die, I'm gonna haunt the sh*t out of you, and I'll make it the worst when you masturbate", and his reply was "Ha! Joke's on you, I'm asexual!" and then the coaster launched us.

That is the best coming out story EVER.
