Weekly Rewind 1.14.12

With no confirmation that it is, it looks like Galveston Please Pier has posted a photo of some StarFlyer pieces on their Facebook!  That's a perfect ride for a pier setting.

I love aerial photos, no secret, so WDW Magic's continuing series of Fantasyland expansion photos are right up my alley.  The new section at the Magic Kingdom is really coming a long, now with footers for the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train going in.

Another new attraction for Hong Kong Disneyland?  Disney and More, via their Star Tours blog, is saying it's a go, to open just after the previously announced expansions debut.  Must be buffing up the offerings for Shanghai Disney

This totally a fan created preview of Alton Tower's planed coaster for 2013, and it looks amazing.  When reviewing the plans I didn't realize the cars had the possibility to interact like that.  I hope they do!

Holy moly, Thorpe Park's Swarm is already testing!  Check out these new photos of a train making its way around the course.  Coasters are growing up faster and faster these days!

So Europa Park has been taking some gorgeous photos of their new coaster, Wodan.  And with plenty of sites covering the progress, it's never hard to get an update.  Official photos can be found here, along with some GCI shots here.  The station fly-by, which is banked, looks amazing.

A lot of people were very excited about the launch of a new section of Disney California Adventure's website devoted to Cars Land, but it all seemed like stuff we've already seen.  Just me perhaps?

Look Ma, we got new logos!  Both The Great Escape and Darien Lake swapped out their old logos and replaced them with fresh designs last week.  The Great Escape's looks very fitting for the woodsy property, and Darien Lake is a total reversal of the thrill-oriented logo the park was using.

It does not have much content quite yet, but Universal Studios Hollywood has launched a new website to help promote Transformers The Ride: 3D, which is set to open in May.  I'd be on the watch for more content as the ride's opening draws closer.
