Worlds of Fun (WOF) Discussion Thread

Postby OzCatter » Tue Sep 06, 2005 4:05 pm

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Worlds Of Fun, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Official Park Website

Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!

If I didn't know better, I'd say it was a clone of Talon.. heh.

Looks 'good' but not 'great.'

Does indeed look like Talon.

Every element is there.

I don't think is it a clone of talon, because if you look at these photos, they look different at the end.

If the layout reminds me of anything it is Great Bear. Right down to the boring straight sections.

It is something more of a modified Talon layout, VERY closely modeled after Talon. Of which I see NO straight sections. So you must be looking at the wrong track.

All the elements are the same except its a bit taller and they are angled differently.

Let me reiterate my thinking (this is all speculation. I will make my final judgement AFTER riding it)[/img]

Don't get me wrong, it could be an insane/super-cool ride. I think the placement of a G&M invert helps it's status even more than the layout. Just think how weird Nemesis would look if you took it out of it's surroundings.

// will wait to ride it before making any final judgements
