Well, since people like to call coasters with track bent like that as "looking painful", I'm just going to say that, for the first time, I think an Intamin coaster looks painful :lmao: (I'm being sarcastic)

Let's not be discriminate as to which company's coasters we say look painful =) . Just kidding.

Intamin has a reputation of smoothness on most of their rides, so I'm going to expect that this one will be smooth.

Good to the last drop

Kirnu videos

Postby mandrl » Wed Apr 25, 2007 12:17 pm

Hiya.

Hope you don't mind that I post videos as a first thing on this forum. Just wanted to share these. They're from the Linnanmäki press day and should be the first videos of Kirnu.

Helsingin Sanomat (hs.fi) is the biggest newspaper around here. According to them, the ride hadn't been officially approved and handed to Linnanmäki yet. Thus, the guy riding Kirnu is probably an Intamin staff member.

A round in the Kirnu:

Linnanmäki is opening on friday! Wohoo! :)

Wow, that thing is so bizarre, but fun looking. Its so short though. Makes me wonder how big they are thinking about making one of these some day.

Thanks for the link.

I imagine this would be fun enough to ride although it seems like the ride is over before it even gets started. I'll try to reserve judgement until I actually ride a ball coaster but that video doesn't make me really want to rush out and ride one.

Thanks for the vids! Kirnu looks awsome, a bit short, but still awsome! I can't wait to ride it some day!

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I can't tell. Is if free spinning or controlled?

Also, are those magnetic brakes at the end? I didn't get a good look at them.
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

I saw, went and conquered Steel Dragon 2000. It's still crap!

It atually looks better than I thought (and much shorter) and I wouldn't hesitate riding it but I still think it isn't worth it for its price (sorry Intamin)
