Yes, and that is why SFGAd will always be a trend setter, or at least try to be. It only has 2 clones, S:UF, and B:TR while other parks have cloned the Mr. Freeze premier rides as well as B:TR and S:UF. At least I think.

I don't consider KK a clone. I think it's been altered anough to be called custom.

I'm still a bit weirded out that we don't have a Goliath.

Tango looks just like Jester's Wild Ride at Great America, only with a different topper. I'm sure they didn't have many options though.
Looks like this is shaping up to be a great addition!

Looks like a couple more weeks to go. The out & back is mostly done, and the infield portion shouldn't take too long. =)

A TON of bents are up in the infied. You can see them from KK's queue. This thing should be testing in a couple weeks!

New update today. Not much to see but the Tango ride is installed and they're working on the last bits of track.

Kingda Ka's second major break down

Postby Token Yankee Guy » Fri May 05, 2006 8:25 pm

No official notice has come out, but someone told me that Kingda Ka had a major break down today. So I went to gadv.com and found some info on it.

Here's what one of the posters witnessed

Ok today at 9:45 Ka broke down on the switchtrack. I thought no biggie! The 20 min later they test it and boom all I hear is this loud roar at the end of the launch track. People said Ka had sparks flying everywhere and stuff. I seriously felt like I was witnessing FinalD4!
Well Ka is pretty much screwed as of now. I didn't see any break fins pop up and it did clear the tower. The key factors in this could be breaks,train,fins, or catch car! It does not look good


Does anyone know, when TTD snapped a cable, did it do something like what KK did?

Whew!
Waiting for confirmation on this one, of course.
Sounds bad for Intamin Accelerator coasters everywhere.
