Yeah, everyone was saying Lost Gravity was going to be , but it's far from it.
Official layout from the park.
This reminds me of playing Rollercoaster Tycoon as a kid. When I finally thought I had a coaster layout that didn't look like utter crap, I did test runs and the ride went for like 32 seconds, and I was like "god damnit"
Yeah it's a nice coaster for a small park, but it's not gonna set the world on fire tbh!
It seems like they could have added a nicer ending instead of slamming into brakes at 35mph and wasting that velocity.
It looks pretty cookie-cutter if i'm honest. It looks to have some intense moments though, which I like.
It's disappointingly short, although it does look quite fun. Hopefully it's going to be enough to convince other smaller and/or cash-light parks to start snapping these up the way that others have been doing with Gerstlauer Eurofighters because I'd love to eventually see one of these pop up in the UK.
Yeah that's awkwardly short. I wonder if they had planned to have it do a bit more but but then scrapped that due to budget reasons.
What's there looks fun though. I like the underground bunny hop.
I realise why I hate this so much, and I think it's the drop.
Yeah, it's a short coaster, but no shorter than the mini Dive coasters B&M are pumping out. But I think the reason I don't dislike the short layouts on those is because the drops at the start are fantastic, and that's the focus. But these twist and dive drops are, in my opinion, pretty terrible. Well, at least the two I've ridden are (Flug and Swarm). I think if this coaster has a slow turnaround at the peak of the lift, and then a straight vertical drop (akin to the Big Dipper layout Mack showed off), I wouldn't mind it.
Nice, sharp and fast layout. Perfect match for this small park in East Germany/Saxonia. – ...and don't forget: The coaster will be beautiful themed... I took this pictures today.
Yeah that layout looks like a waste of height and speed.
I like the little speed hill in the tunnel. Might catch some people off guard.
Yeah, I quite like the layout, personally. The underground bunny hill should provide some surprising airtime, and if the dive drop is like Swarm's, then it should be awesome, in my opinion! Besides, the layout looks to pack a decent amount into its length, in my opinion; an awesome fit for Plohn, in my eyes!
Freizeitpark Plohn have shared on Facebook some pictures of the track being manufactured in the Mack Rides Factory.
If it's similar to lost gravity's then the drop will be nothing alike the B&M wing over dive loop...
That drop is arguably the best part of the ride...
Yeah, but if you look at the actual released media for it, it is more akin the second diving drop on Lost Gravity, which is similar to B&M Wing Coaster drops.
Initially I forgot that one existed, yeah that dive drop did absolutely nothing...
I do kind of like the wing dive loops, esp on the seat that goes up for visuals, but ehh, on lost gravity that 2nd one just was entirely unimpressive...
From CoasterFriends.de a look the progress on the theming. The ride's logo has been added to the top of the central tower.
As you can see on the right, either side of the tower building they are actually using containers and then decorating/theming them to create the building.
From the park themselves some overall views of the construction site.
Seems that using shipping containers for theming just is mandatory for this ride model...
Supports on site!
I love the use of old scrap industrial machinery and bits to create the theming.
View of the site.
Theming of the queueline.
Reusing part of the old Silvermine coaster which was removed to make way for Dynamite.
Another picture of the supports.
Some interestingly shaped supports.
