Maybe CP will star using theming or a while.

It may be more expensive but i can't see that a aquatrax coaster can be very expensive...

So it's basically Intamin's water coaster?

That's not nearly as thrilling as I was expecting.

Water coasters don't really do much for me.

Same here, they might aswell have just surprised us with an SLC!

I was hoping for a more thrilling coaster than that.

If it is true, then I'm dissapointed but if its not, WOO HOO

Is it even a water coasters though?

Does it have a water splash or something?

All of the pictures I've seen of Atlantis adventure just look like a well themed Intamin with a special train. No water affects or anything.

Unless there's something I'm really missing?

Also, what exactly is the Intamin water coaster at Gardaland? It had the Intamin T-bar restraints, Intamin tri-track, and an Intamin cable lift system but it also floats for much of it's course. It certainly felt like a water coaster to me. Yet rcdb does not list it. Does anyone have any real info on it?


T-bars?? Which ride did you go on? The Atlantis ride at Gardaland has seatbelts only ;)

Sorry rollermonkey, but I really don't think that this is going to be an Intamin aqua trax coaster. I just beleive it is way to hyped up by the people who actually know what it is to be something so disapointing. Although I could be wrong I just don't see this happening because construction has started so early, the "CP clues" don't point to this, and I don't think CP would build this coaster after the accedent the other one had.

^ That accident has no impact on any future rides built of that type.

It was a case where a drunk employee was able to ride without being secured. He then fell and died.

You can't blame the designer for an accident causd by sheer stupidity in a country with a lack of proper saftey guidelines.

Sorry I didn't really know the whole story behind the accident, but I am still sticking with my theory that CP won't be getting the aqua trax.

I always thought in the back of my mind it would be some sort of water coaster, simply because they took out the log flume for it.
