    To be fair, I never understood how you lay out precise footer/support locations on bare mud. Personally, I'm glad when I manage to assemble Ikea furniture without having to apply brute force because something doesn't quite fit.

    Reminds me of when The Smiler was being built. How they got that to fit together I will never know.

    surely there's nothing wrong with that last pic. every coaster has a built in amount of give. You just need to look at something like dragons fury when the train goes down the first drop. as long as it's not too much things like that should bolt together just fine I'd expect.

    of course I maybe completely wrong but from an engineering perspective you wouldn't want the ride to be perfectly rigid it needs to flex a bit.

    I mean yeah you're right but I think it's good if the track and supports, you know... Touch.

    Well, they didn't properly. One of the supports broke after a few weeks of it running

    This is a complicated structure. It's possible that as they build more of the ride and more members become stressed, they bend into alignment...

    ...or they :emoji_zipper_mouth:ed up. One of the two :p

    That's the art of engineering - realising it's the latter, but saying it's the former. ;)

    Either way, you're going to be in fade city. Given it took Cedar Point nearly 15 years to paint TTD, I can only wonder with this one.
