More details on the coaster and the park has been leaked.

ThrillPoint is a new park in Belgium. Started by a billionair and coaster enthusiast. It's goal is to have the most rollercoasters in the world, consisting of very good coasters only.

The first 3 being build are Boomerang, a Vekoma Boomerang. The Rattler, a GCI wooden coaster. And the one seen in the teasers will be a 250 foot or 75 meter tall B&M Hyper named Fury 250. Based of course on Fury 325 at Carowinds.

We can't wait to show off more of the building process that is going on in ThrillPoint. And hope to see you soon with more details.

Another Teaser:

Today, 3 new pictures have been leaked into the public.

First one is the complete layout of Fury 250 as seen from the parking lot.



Second one is the Vekoma boomerang. This will be the first coaster you will see as you enter the park, even though u walk underneath Fury 250 to enter the park.



And all the way on the edge of the road u ride next to The Rattler, the wooden family coaster of the park.



The management of ThrillPoint hopes to announce more details in the near future.

ThrillPoint looks like it is going to be awesome!
Quote
Life can be like a roller coaster and just when you think you've had enough, and you're ready to get off the ride and take the calm, easy Merry-Go-Round; you change your mind, throw your hands in the air and ride the roller coaster all over again. That's exhilaration...that's living a bit on the edge...that's being ALIVE!

Thanks for all the positive reactions. And i really love the simpler coasters in the world. So i don’t see the need to go very complex yet.

I will now take a while longer to get to the next update. Reason is that I'm fairly good with the coaster building mechanics, but when it comes to buildings and structures I'm really bad.

Yeah you have to have patience with buildings; I find it it easier to find real life examples and try to mimic it.

Here's a picture of the ticket booths and Fury 250 rising above.

Another day, another teaser.

Everyday the ThrillPoint building crew comes closer to finishing the first area of the park. A new coaster has been build, a B&M floorless coaster called The Snap. maybe some of the geeks in here will find out the theme of the coaster by only going of the name and the colourscheme (violet and black).

The Snap is a 7 inversion rollercoaster located next to it's bigger brother Fury 250.

Here's the picture, it's taken from the parking lot.



See ya next time :)

ThrillPoint - The first construction update
« Reply #13 on: September 21, 2019, 02:57 AM »
Hello everybody,

Today is the First big update about the progress on ThrillPoint.




The first thing you will see when entering the park area is the helix of The Rattler. There u will choose to continue straight towards entrance B (Not build yet) or your turn right to the main entrance and the main parking lot.



This is the main parking lot located next to Fury 250's airtime hills and the main entrance.



On the main parking lot there will be picnic accommodations. This is inspired by the outside pick nick area's of Cedar Point.



When you parked your car you will continue towards the main entrance. To do this u will have to either walk underneath Fury 250's double up or above it's dive under.



And then u can buy your tickets to enter the park.



When u entered the park the first thing u are greeted with is Boomerang on your left. and a big welcome sign with the park logo.



At this point there are 3 directions you can choose from. You can go to the left, to the Boomerang Snack area and the entrance of Boomerang.



You can continue straight forward into the main park area by walking on the midway towards the carousel.



Or what most people will do in the beginning of the day. You can go left towards the entrance of Fury 250. Passing by the 2 entrance restaurants, The ribshack and the ThrillPoint Diner. Guest Services is also located this way.



The Fury 250 lift hill.



That's all that has been build on the entrance area unfortunately. luckily there are 2 more coasters build.

The Snap.





And The Rattler.



And for ending this update i have obtained a drone picture of the complete park so far.




I hope everybody is excited to visit ThrillPoint in the near future. And we will see you next time. And remember this is very much still a work in progress.

A few days without any news have passed. But now the teaser pictures will start again while we inch closer towards the soft opening of the first area of the park.

a new flat ride has been build, It's a huss giant Frisbee named MaxAir.



See you on the next update.

Another day, and a few more pictures have been released by the ThrillPoint management.

But instead of 1 there are 4 pictures. 2 New rollercoasters have been build, as well as 2 family rides and a power tower made up of 4 towers each with a unique sequence.

One of the flatrides is called Balloons.



Hmm and we can't help but wonder what rollercoaster this will be.



The tower looks menacing above the newly build midway.



And finally a shot of the skyline of ThrillPoint, which is coming together very well.



Hope you enjoy these teasers and we'll see you again very soon.
