Research and Musings around the amusement park world.
One of this years biggest surprises so far has been the introduction of B&M built trains which appeared on Steel Dragon 2000 at Nagashima Spaland in Japan, These new trains feature 2 across seating and some interesting safety enhancements with new leg restraints and a seatbelt. Whatever you think of those additions the trains certainly look the part and below are two new videos of them in action.
The worlds tallest gravity driven coaster has added new trains. Steel Dragon 2000 at Nagashima Spaland Japan have had the trains supplied by B&M to replace the old boxy Morgan trains. I’ve never ridden in one of the Morgan trains but from what I’ve heard these can only be an improvement. Below are a few pictures but click on their official site link for a short video.
Ever wanted to ride a B&M backwards? while now you can. The excellent Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan has announced they will run their B&M mega with backwards facing cars from the 15th of March this year. Its unknown how long this will last but if you have the chance to goto Japan I highly recommend checking this already excellent park out.
Joypolis in Tokyo has undergone a large refit recently, The most interesting change however is the parks coaster, I’m not sure if this is a refit of the existing ride there or if its an entirely new ride but the park now features “Veil of Dark” a spinning coaster that features A launch, An Inversion and shooting segments. That’s several world firsts right there.
Pictures are lacking right now but below is what I’ve dug up so far showing off the new elements. (More if and when I find them)
