    I've never heard a definitive answer, but I'd put my money on about 1000kg per row.

    Maybe we should see if @roomraider knows anyone at B&M, and could email?

    Tricky question, but I think some people here would know.
    Edit: Hixee got here before me to suggest roomraider. That guy is a treasure trove.

    @Hyde, you're good with Cedar Fair parks, and Fury appears to be in one. Do any of your sources say anything about this?

    Here's a (very) rough estimate until someone can find out anything more specific.

    According to Intamin, Millennium Force trains weigh 27 tons each, that is 24,494 kilos. Each train seats 36 people. (source: https://coasterbuzz.com/Forums/Topic/weight-of-a-train).

    Fury 325 trains seat 32 people per train but has a zero car.

    Assuming it's a fully packed train thats 32 x 70kg = 2,240 kilos. Plus the weight of the train equals 26,734 kilos.

    Again, this is very rough maths but it would be interesting how close this quick calculation is to the actual answer.

    I'm cheating by using the given information already stated. I would guess anywhere from 25,000 Kilos to 30,000 Kilos.
