...overcoming spectacular moves with up to 6 G-Forces.


6 g's? Holy crap! :lover:

I can't help but wondering after seeing the "rollback" in the video... How many rollbacks would you be allowed before a ride attendant came over and... "encouraged" you not to rollback anymore?? I mean, you know there are teenagers out there who would sit there and purposely NOT clear the loop as many times as they could before it became an issue.

Regardless... It looks freaking amazing!! I could so see a place like Fun Spot getting one of these!! :br

^ Fun Spot was the second place I thought of upon seeing the video. Number 1 was Action Park. After almost installing that looping water slide with the rider capsule, this doesn't seem outside the realm of possibilities for them.

I'm definitely intrigued by the element. Only allowing one cart at a time definitely makes sense in case of a rollback. Hopefully the "runway" before the loop is long enough such that people waiting for the element can build up enough speed to successfully complete it.

Wait, this is real? When I first saw it, I shrugged it off as YouTube clickbait.

I'm assuming that in reality, the kart's throttle would become controlled by a system to ensure that stalling and rollbacks didn't happen.
This makes sense to me anyway.

That wasn't an "almost" that actually did happen back in the 90's thay installed and operated, briefly a looping waterslide.

Yes, but they tried it a second time a few years ago with that crazy coffin "Sky Caliber" thing. From what I understand, it never opened to the public.

This seems like one of those ideas that could go so badly wrong... I'm sure the company has taken precautions against everything, but I still can't help but feel a person with just the right level of stupid could do something mind-numbingly idiotic to f**k this up brilliantly.

Fingers crossed, this does look really cool and only time will tell who purchases it and how they ensure success.

That was my first thought as well.

I'd ride this. I'm impressed, and living near Branson I'm mostly immune to go kart gimmicks.
