I think the yellow rollercoaster on the red tracks is no longer there, but the other three rides are.

You forgot pictures of the Big Shot that shoots you up the spire and then drops you in a free fall.

True. Driving isn't safe here. But the rides are.

I would like to try that!



Especially this one. What if they extended that bar a little more?

Birmingham is getting something like this. Not as tall but tall by UK city standards. Europe's first vertical theme park - I don't know what they mean by this though.

I've been on Big Shot and High Roller before they took it down to make space for the two new rides. It's scary as hell at first, but it was awesome. I would ride them again. I don't know about the two new rides though.
