Hi
Anyone have any coaster recreations from Worlds of Fun? I see a few of us are in KS. I grew up at that park and miss it a lot. LOL. I'm interested in the Orient Express and the old (and long-gone) Zambedee Zinger (the best coaster in the world - from my kid point of view). I recreated the Orient on RCT 2 but lost it when I reformatted the computer.

Thanks
Jeremy

I'm from KC too, and I have a recreation of Mamba (http://www.weeweeslap.com/track_exchange/detail.asp?tid=7355) that I made(sry no custom supports).Also I don't know if you know or not, but Orient Express is now gone as is Zambei Zinger...so sorry, but if you've heard, wof is getting a B&M invert called the Patriot and it looks pretty cool so far.

oh that's awful.
orient is gone.... son of a.... That''s very very sad. I haven't been there in a few years (i'm in minneapolis) That breaks my heart LOL. I went on that rollercoaster when i was like 9. I grew up on that one. It was awesome . I actually think I can recreate it.... Dang
Zinger has been gone a long time, replaced by a stupid coaster (is there any?)

Thanks for the news

^No problem, and you're right the removal of Orient Express was sad. It was a classic, and even if it was rough it was still cool and could have been fixed up. As for Zinger I beleive it was replaced by Boomerang(Vekoma Boomerang) which isn't really that fun or original.Also, if you don't know already, Wof has a D.H Morgan hypercoaster called Mamba.I'm not sure how old it is, or if you know about it, but it's there and is now the highlight of the park.

Oh, and guess what else, Orient Express was replaced by a Haunted House(for Halloweekends) and the dolphin show by it, is now a spinning wild mouse coaster called Spinning Dragons, and it's really crappy, and slow loading.So Wof seems to have gone through many changes lately.It's always good to keep a Kansas Citian informed about Wof.:D

Is now located in Parque Nacional Del Café (Montenegro, Quindio Colombia) & is known as Broca

The Orient Express doesn't seem to have been relocated anywhere.

thanks for the pics.
I have been meaning to look for those.

Awesome
Sigh... so many memories:
1. The dang loud tunnel in Zinger near the end. I always hated that part cause it was SOOO loud.
