How would the train have made it back to the station without valleying? Gotta love Rudolf Barth (pictured) for even considering these changes. Best showman ever?!
And how many trains would this monster have added to the already 5?
In fact, do we think a Schwarzkopf train would have been able to navigate a zeroG (smoothly)?
Just watched this footage - breathtaking on the quality of the restoration! That Side-friction really clips along, I especially enjoyed the rider who was sticking their hand out, and tapping every crossbeam support as they rode along. ?
This footage is extremely rare as it shows what was a short-lived amusement park on one of the hills surrounding Barcelona: Casino de l'Arrabassada. It coexisted with Tibidabo until Casino was deemed unprofitable and closed down. In that video you can see two iconic rides: a shoot-the-chutes and a massive side-friction roller coaster.
That would be pretty difficult to do easily. Personally, I'd look at one of the sites that has date information - RCDB would be my first stop - and then go to the usual suspects. I'd look at opening and closing dates for coasters in those parks and just see if anything jumped out.Does anyone know if there's any veracity to the claim that Riverview had the most roller coasters at the time? How would one even go about trying to prove if it was true or not?
