I've created this topic because I cannot find another topic about this. Here is what I believe to be an artist impression of the coaster below:
Whoa, that has got to be one of the wonkiest artist's impressions I've seen today. I can't find a single stretch of track in that image where the banking is anywhere close to sane, the supports are inconsistent at best, and what is the track doing on the left there? It doesn't seem like this drawing is based on any finished plans for the coaster, because nothing in the world of artistry could make a well-engineered coaster design look so fundamentally bonkers as this.ATI said:I've created this topic because I cannot find another topic about this.

Oooooh, a Hyper with wing trains with Mack restraints incorporating a dive loop as a turnaround and a couple of zero g stalls would be incredible.Seems quite massive for a B&M wing coaster, but then again I've always thought the wings would make for a fantastic (near) hypercoaster. The first element is also listed as a dive drop so we may be looking at a new inversion height record breaker!
Well technically it is Eejanaika at 249 feet...Dinoconda is 2nd at 226 feet so this would be third. However it would precisely tie with Parrot Coaster for the length record at 4192.9 feet. Seems a bit questionable that it is listed as the exact same length.Not sure what the height record for a wing is currently, around 180/190ft? So I wouldn't be that surprised if the stats were correct.
The last time somebody said something like that, I converted the units and it turned out that the quoted length was a very round and generic number - 2000 meters or something like that. But 4192.9 feet equals 1278 meters, hardly a rounded-off estimate of ride length. Could this be a clone of Parrot Coaster? The original appears to sit on rather flat land, so it wouldn't be unfeasibly difficult to clone.Seems a bit questionable that it is listed as the exact same length.
Unknown at the moment. You'd have to assume they have updated the system as its been a while since anyone picked up an Impulse. The Intamin Reference list just has this down as Double Twisted Impluse Coaster though.Will the impulse use LIMs, or will they have altered the design so it has LSMs instead?
