Assuming these numbers are accurate, the average acceleration on this launch is going to be <u>very</u> nice:

65.05 feet/sec^2 (2.02g)

For comparison purposes:

Xcelerator: 52.29 feet/sec^2 (1.62g)

TTD: 44.00 feet/sec^2 (1.37g)

Kingda Ka: 53.64 feet/sec^2 (1.67g)

HyperSonic XLC: 65.19 feet/sec^2 (2.03g)

Dodonpa: 87.10 feet/sec^2 (2.71g)

All you engineering/physics nerds out there please feel free to tear me apart if I've done this wrong. But I think this is going to be one hell of a launch for a little Eurofighter coaster.

Update: fixed my borked numbers.

That inclined pretzel helix looks good, especially with the inline roll on the left side. Should be interesting to see the theme and whatnot when its finished.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

:omg: If thats the case, all I can say is WOW! A launch that intense on that small a coaster would be pretty extreme, and should give plenty of speed for the remainder of the ride.
As for the ride itself, so far so good. I'd like to see a layout/blueprint shot, but I'm sure that hasn't been released yet (or HAS it?) Either way, with Mystery and Maverick being my current favorite steels, and my recently developed love for new age coaster like Gerstelurs and El Locos, I'm definately gonna have to make a Europe trip sometime in my near future.

(BTW, Sorry I havn't porsted in ages. My internet kind of screwed up)

Anyway, This looks really interesting. This is the reason I like eurofighters, because of the cheapness of them so small parks like these can get a good amount of customers still attracted to the park because they have an exiting ride like the eurofighter. It is easily marketable, and very cheap!

Cheers,

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Are you sure you have your units right? Did you mean meters/second... (The speed of sound is only 0.2miles/second, I believe.)

Still though, this thing will be pretty fast!

Joe, I agree, your units seem to be off. But they are off consitantly.

By my calculations, this has the just about the same acceleration as Hypersonic XLC at about 65ft/s^2 which is just a bit more than 2G (1G=32ft/s^2).

Actually, it goes from 0 to 27.7 mps, in 1.4 sec. That means 19.8412 m/s^2...
And that's precisely 2.02G, if you take that Earth's gravity is 9.8 m/s^2

Yeah, I must have been half awake when I did that. I forgot to take it down to the distance/sec level. Fixed it.

It's still very impressive for a little guy like that.

Unless you're taking the MCAT where they let you be lazy and approximate g = 10 m/s^2. I loved that. Of course, that was because you had to do all the problems in your head on that test.
