Discussion in 'Roller Coaster Construction' started by Swoosh, Oct 16, 2016.
If by "multiple" you mean "2" - then I'd say that's the most popular thought as of now.
What if this isn't a spinner? It could just be a regular launch coaster, similar to Helix.
It's a spinner, look at the concept art earlier in the thread.
Because the park had said this will be a "first of its kind" and a "regular launched coaster, similar to Helix" has been done before.
The completed track segment keeps growing.
Progress as of this weekend:
This week's progress shows an almost completed station with regards to siding and we have a second swoop of track installed. Previews of the update are below. As always more photos of the progress can be found HERE
TRACK INSTALLATION PROGRESS:
The finishes on the station are looking really nice.
Lets play a game whoever guesses the most right wins... results should be out around august 5th.
1.Number of inversions (0 is an option)
2.Number of launches (0 is an option)
7.One specific inversion (if you think there will be any)
8.Number of airtime moments (0 is an option)
9.Approximate top speed
10.Number of Records/Firsts
First looping Mack multi-launch in the US.
Time Travel (mad scientist experiment?)
Heartline Roll, Zero G Roll
4- tallest spinner, fastest spinner, first launched spinner, most inversions on spinner
I might be overstepping here, but let's stick to discussion and update photos so that the people who want to find the latest on the ride don't have to shift through numerous posts like what you are proposing.
Go on then, who doesn't love a bit of speculation?
Steampunk type Wild West
Heartline roll, corkscrew
6 [notable] airtime moments
62 mph (100 kph)
Hopefully nothing too gimmicky
Con-Artist/salesman with a steampunk-y station and Roman ride
Zero-G Roll and or Inline Twist
4 Airtime moments
Can I just ask why everyone is guessing about 90ft? Am I missing something here?
^The height of the station is already very high up, which indicates a drop out of the station. This seriously decreases the likelihood of the ride needing to go up that high. It can certainly go higher than the station height, but it shouldn't need to go any more than maybe 30 feet over it.
Tokyo's Joypolis already got that title in 2012 - https://rcdb.com/6453.htm
I'd be surprised if this didn't have a launched section though.
Probably first launched spinner with inversions
The coaster he linked to also has an inversion
First multiple launched spinner with multiple inversions?
Frankly, I hope they don't really go for any of that sort of marketing. Just make the ride really ing good, and it'll market itself!
Hence the "S"
