I'm sure there's still one operating the travelling industry and Ankapark bought one.
Yeah I think there is - I meant that I kinda feel this concept could have been pushed. There was a gap in the market back when this came out.
Looks brutal tho :O
Can we talk about how strange the layout and restraints for this cancelled Motocoaster model are?
MOD EDIT: Posts merged
That layout looks pretty good actually, the full-body restraints look terrible though
I can just about cope the B&M vest restraints, I’m not really sure what to think of the ones on that concept...
It's even worse in-person!
The way your legs are tucked in but theres only a bit supporting them up also looks really uncomforable.
I think permanent sideways seats would interesting. We've obviously seen a lot go backwards or spin, but never really a stationary sideways seat (kind of like a surfing position, but seated). I have found on spinning roller coasters that a sideways orientation is a great change of pace (vertical loops taken sideways are really funky and awesome). I can definitely see a surfing themed ride with sideways seats, and I feel like there's a lot of potential there.
Still under-developed I guess haha. And I meant more on a true, thrilling coaster. That appears to be a small-scale indoor coaster.
That sounds dreadful, everyone will be craning their necks for the whole ride to see where they are going!
I get your point about loops though, sometimes I deliberately look to the side on a loop to enjoy watching the world do a 360.
I suppose that is a good point about craning their necks. I just love the different sensations that a rotated seat gives.
Lift hills would be very difficult to make comftorable also. Your head is either bobbing to the side, the restraint pins you down on your side or its comftorable but the lift is extremely shallow angle.
Or it could be launched
I feel as though that could be even more difficult, as it would require even more fine tuning. I say an elevator lift Cobra's Curse style would be the best option.
I know everyone has seen this concept art, but I really loved this idea of the IOA Batman area and especially this Arrow Suspended dueling coaster.
Actually what was arguably the world's first proper roller coaster the Thompson Switchback at Coney Island in 1884 had one train with forwards seats and one train with sideways seats. I believe a number of the subsequent installations also had these sideways facing cars
Well Switchback Railways are sorta back, so haha yes. (switchback is mm so gewd)
Ha I love how they're all freaking out at the sideways motion and then there's just Stalin at the back acting all nonchalant.
Pax Sideways coaster?
