This is Jungle Trailblazer at the Fantawild park in Jinan. It should open soon. The park has opened but the ride has to go through more tests before it is approved by a safety board.

I hear it somehow got denied already. Hopefully they fix that.

Why do all these good rides have to open so far away? It isn't like the internet where I can just download/buy stuff and here it is sometime later at my doorstep, able to interact with it. I almost wish I never ever became a ride enthusiast at all.
Here's the thing yeah we started off friends but this is not a Kelly Clarkson song and not how it ends.

It's funny how they accept those sketchy knock offs without question but the quality rides get denied.

I guess bribery could work too.

Any idea why is failed the safety board test (if it really did).

Safety Board misunderstood the term "ejector airtime".

Another one is opening at the Fantawild park in Wuhu and it will also invert, but has a very different layout and will probably have the same name. Apparently one more inverting wooden coaster is supposed to open in China this year as well.

Here are pictures of the one in Wuhu which is still being built as the park has not opened yet.

Here are some pictures of the one in Jinan which is the one with the POV at the top.

I love how Gravity Group is showing that a wooden coaster does not need a lot of inversions or overbanked turns to be good. All you need is a strong airtime packed layout and an inversion can be thrown in to make it even better. I love how GG's inversions are all wood and do not use topper track, all of their rides are basically a slap in the face to RMC and I love how they are modernizing their rides, but keeping the old school charm of a wooden coaster.

Looks like Gravity Group and M&V have done it again. Can't wait to see more of them popping up on the European Mainland. We need more real woodies.

The third wooden coaster that I talked about is finished and is at the Fantawild in Zhengzhou! It will not invert and features a more classic layout. All that is available right now is an aerial view.

It would be great to see more of these bigger TGG/M&V rides built more in the US again. Wooden Warrior and Roar-a-saurus look like great rides, but I'd love to see something like the coasters above built in the states
What are these for?

Yeah as you say, Roar-O-Saurus is indeed a great compact woodie! 8-)

Here are some more pictures of the one in Zhengzhou. The one in Jinan has officially opened and there is also an Orkanen clone in this park.

I bet that's going to be a serious little drop. Looks like you'll hit the curve pretty hard in the back seat, in a good way.

Zhengzhou's wooden coaster also has a reverse high five. It is not dueling.

Here's a POV of the ride in Wuhu which has a different layout and a corkscrew. The ride in Zhenzhou has opened along with a Fjord Flying Dragon clone at Happy Valley Tianjin and a clone of the first ride mentioned is being built in Ningbo.
