But would a dueling Raptor hit 1,200 riders per hour?
he said "Copper-fasten" clearly it's a Copper head strike clone.
I'm going for the Hybrid theory. wood and steel 2 in one. put in a launch like Dollywood and you have your European first. although the Mack theory certainly has credence but I can't see them hitting that capacity mark.
I dunno, you're the throughput expert.
Wonder Woman Golden Lasso raptor, has a 600 per hour capacity with 1800 foot length
multiply that by 2 and add 600 foot per track and should easily do 1200.
seriously doubt they'll be putting raptor in tayto, reckon some type of launched dueling coaster
I'd like to see an inverting Vekoma dueling coaster. Maybe we could see a Battlestar Galactica 2.0?
Sorry what are you on about? I'm not sure I understand your maths?
"2 coasters in 1" and "europe's first" combined is throwing me off. Most coasters I can think of that I could possibly state as being 2 coasters in one are already here.
What about a duelling invert/sit down? Like that hideous orange/green thing they’re building in Guangzhuo? We don’t have one of those in Europe right?
Was referring to capacity 1200 an hour should be possible. essentially if had 2 raptors (600 each) interlinked would double capacity to 1200
By 2 coasters in 1 I'm specualing that the 2 is number of distinct tracks and 1 is ride like dragon challenge, Colossus etc. People refer to ride not which track you ride.
Could be completely wrong
West Coast Racers but with potatoes instead of cars
PoTayto Racers, anyone?
As far as half-baked ideas go, this is the best one I've heard of.
Umm... thank you very much!
That's 400 meters longer than the wooden coaster. About half the length again.
He deserves a roasting for coming up with a name like that
I was about to apologise, but then I realised what you did there; good one @Peet!
EDIT: Just saw @JoshC.'s pun, too; loving all these potato puns!
You have to keep your eyes peeled or you'll miss them.
When it boils down to it, we're mashing these puns out.
Yeah, we all need to chip out.
It'll be a hybrid, I reckon.
A roller-coaster has been confirmed for Tayto Park by park owner Ray Coyle for 2021.
He also stated in an interview "The new roller-coaster will be two roller-coasters in one. It will be a first for Europe and ensure the future of the park. If you don’t create something landmark every three of four years, your numbers will start going down and that is the road to closure.”
Two roller coasters in one could mean multiple things it could mean a, duelling coaster, Or maybe two elements. He also states it would be the first for Europe possibly meaning that this coaster type is somewhere else in the world.
Some other stats that was confirmed in the interview.
Cost: 14 Million.
Height: 105 ft (Same height as there Gravity Group.)
Length: 4,862.2 ft
