Nice to see reports of some more obscure parks around the world :)
It's always kind of odd to see an Arrow with that style of track. The transition into the first drop looks interesting, too. Shame it's SBNO.

I'd actually guess that all those turns are very smooth. This coaster was built around the same time as Tennessee Tornado and after Arrow started changing their design methods. They started using heart-lining and other modern methods.

Nice Photo TR. I always enjoy seeing these Photo TRs of rarely visited parks. Too bad about almost everything be closed though. Hopefully this park will get some love soon.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

Actual question for you...

Were there women/girls in the park? Is there a separate women's day? Or were all the girls just too smart to go to this park? ;)

You'd think that with the money Kuwait has someone would be able to afford to build a decent theme park.

No. Women go the park with guys like any other park, but they also have mondays reserved for women only. Thursday, a lot of boys schools reserved the park. Our school is unisex, but they separate us after the 3rd grade. It's a K-12 school.
