    But it uses drive tyres:-

    Would use the CF vid but it isn't as HD.

    You can't take a promotional video from over half a year ago as solid evidence of the rides mechanics.......

    @ATI Drive tires need a motor to spin. To save costs, some companies use a belt/chain to turn two(or more) tires with one motor. A sprocket is attached next to the wheel, and the motor then spins the chain, which in turn spins both wheels.

    The ride will be tire driven, but the tires cannot move the train around the circuit at a constant speed, so it will use a chain to slowly move the train for maintenance.

    This was said by a Skyline employee.

    Forgot about these. Have we confirmed that it's a cred? I remember associating these with the Larson Loopers when I first saw the reveal, but I'm not too sure now...

    I'd count it, RCDB does too. Reason being that the drive tires aren't in contact with the car the entire time, so it "coasts" down the half-loop parts of the ride, and then gets driven back up the "dive" by the tires.

    But if you can count these, then how come Larson Super Loops can't be counted? Do they not coast at all?

    No as the train is part of a continuous ring which is always in contact with some kind of propulsion system.

    Yeah, I took a look at the video again and it seems like you're right. I originally thought that something was constantly powering the trains.

    I'm not a fan of the Larson Looper (did it at SFNE and it was a little gross). I'm inclined to compare this to the LL's, and since they seem very similar I'm not really excited for this.

    But it's a +1 so yay?

    Having eventually found the post, I have embedded the photos making viewing them fully less of a ball-ache:-

    Yeah, after seeing those tyres, it's moved into the "defs-a-cred" category, whereas the loopers just aren't, by any definition.

    For me it's the same distinction now as a half-pipe vs a disco.
