Hopi Hari - Brazil

Postby jvgfranco » Sat Feb 11, 2006 9:38 am

Hey guys! Here are some pictures from my last trip to Hopi Hari at São Paulo, Brazil... Hope you like them! Take a look at the dark clouds in the sky... BIG STORM! More pictures in the next page...

I put Katapul's POV (ex-Thunderlooper, King Cobra, etc) and Montezum at the videos forum... :)

Wow, Vurang is the second example of the Intamin spinning coaster I have ever seen. Comet Express at Lotte World in Seoul appears to be the same model. Does Vurang have powered sections and coasting sections?

^ After that statement, I am assuming that Katapul is King Cobra?

And, wow, Montezum looks cool, but it LOOKS rough!!! Do you have a POV of that thing?

Katapul was "Thunderlooper" at Alton Towers before it was removed due to noise and the fact it could be easily seen from outside the park.

Why they had to move it to Brazil....

The park doesn't look as bad as I had imagined actually!

Jolly jolly jolly jolly jolly

^ Stupid Roper family (or whatever the hell their name is).

Nice pictures, the clouds actually make for some stunning photos.

Hopi Hari looks like a nice park to visit! Reminds me of Gullivers Warrington, but with all the rides twice as big.

Quick question - which is the park in Brazil with the 300ft+ Intamin Drop Tower?

That park would be Beto Carrero World. Nice park too!
