Hero - Flamingoland (Zamperla Volare)

Postby Thekingin64 » Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:10 pm



This is supposedly going on the site of the old Wild Mouse which is no longer with Flamingo Land - the positioning of this is causing a bit of a debate as to how tight and crammed that area will be due to the larger footprint of the Volare over the Wild Mouse.

A Zamperla Volare can be seen on the below video.



Even though they are reputed to be rough, This should be fun and a completely new experience for guests to FL. The only problem I have with it is the loading system. People in wheelchairs or with mobility disabilities will not be able to get on which I think will cause some uproar within the disability group I usually go with.

Name has been announced! It'll be Hero.

It suits the type of ride but I don't particularly like that name. Too generic.

I definatly agree Thekingin64, that the Hero is a very, very generic and low imagination name. But at least the park is getting two new coasters for this season, even if their names are poor.

Sounds nice. Even with all the flak these rides get, I've always wanted to ride one mainly to see how bad they actually are.

I may be going to FL in a couple weeks so I'll get some photos if I do.

Looking good! It's fitting into the space provided a lot better than I thought it would!

Well I've always trusted the decision by Flamingoland, as they obviously had planed how the coaster would fit into any prospective areas of the park.

I'm hoping that it'll be a decent coaster. Though, I wouldn't count on it. :)

Personally I think it will be a good coaster for Flamingoland, and as it is the second flying coaster in the UK and will offer a different experience to the first one (Air - Alton Towes), it will definatly lure people to the park.
