Which ride are the seats for? It's in with the Atlantica Super Splash pictures. The seats on atlantica are just benches - not comfy seats like those.

Yummy!

Not sure of the supposed 'Atlantica' boats are actually for that ride... as there is blue on the edges of them in the factory and Atlantica's boats don't have blue on them... Could be for the new Super Splash at Seaworld, Texas? Another point, the new style Mack seats shown are different to Atlantica's wooden-bench style seating - unless they are altering the seats (as they are for Wild Mouse Matterhorn Blitz).

Great to see such pics of where the EP magic (and many more rides besides...) is made!

Never knew about Schweizer Bob Bahn's bizarre depot!

:D

According to RCDB (I'm sure Dan the fanb0i will confirm this later :P) bu there's three currently operating including Europa. Ther others being in TusenFryd in Oslo and Plopsaland in Belgium. There's two under construction for the 2007 seasons at Seaworld in Texas and Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village in Taiwan (what a random name for the a themepark!)

Confirmed!

The new Super Splash at SeaWorld, Texas will be a close copy of Atlantica at Europa-Park which, at present at least, is the only Super Splash to feature a reverse drop.

It is so camp and cheesy. But that's one of the reasons I love Mack - they're so down to earth about everything!

And I didn't realise they were such an old company :shock:

That song sounds like they same artist as the Silver Star track! :lol:

:lol: Aye it is. It's not the best i'll agree. It's rather Disney-esque, but to be honest I find it quite bland.

Could you imagine B&M doing a promo like that? :P

No, you aren't. Youa re just recognising a fine ride manufacturer with core values of fun and service - that's what Mack is all about. You can see their ethos with Europa-Park. It's all about creating an enjoyable environment without necessarily scaring you s***less! They do make some of the most enjoyable coasters and rides you could think of, which is why they're so fantastic.

I wish Alton Towers would invest in Mack family coasters rather than the likes of Maurer Sohne. I would Beastie to replaced by a Pegasus style coaster! Imagine that - it would be fantastic.

Oh i totally agree, i was talking about B&M, I like Mack rides, they are quality family rides and very reliable. Nothing to expensive either, id love to see something take over the beastie site, perhaps themed around a nother game? Snakes and ladders! :-o :D

What an idea! The lift is a ladder, drop is a snake! Why did nobody think of this before! Merlin sign me up!

I really enjoyed watching those videos - that tune's quite catchy! Mack certainly make some great rides - my favourite so far is Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster at WBMW in Australia, a fab themed ride and although it's a wild mouse, it has some added extras too :D

I think it would be quite boring to be honest! You don't really see amazing detail on ride cars and such on B&Ms productions, Although I think it would be interesting for Coaster Fans to see.

I think I'll stick to watching MACK RIDES! :P

Ewwww No! - Tussaud Studio Fibreglass snakes! No Way! - They should make it fit in with Squirrel Nutty, and StoryBooks! :)
