Worst joke ever. :P

ps: Fremont sucks.. Tiffin is better.. ;)



I can't wait to see the similarities to Maverick.. because it will obviously have them.

Lets hope it isn't an epic fail like Fahrenheit was.

Actually, it says on Miraforever.com, and some other sites, that it's going to have 4 inversions...
http://www.miraforever.com/index.php
There's a pic in that link, which shows sierra tonante in top view, and the places, where the new coaster will have inversions are marked with pink dots. The red dot shows where the tophat (highest point) is going to be...
Wanna bet that the double inversion nearest to the tophat is a Norwegian loop? ;)

Those 4 inversions are still a rumor. The layout hasn't been released yet.

Ya think?
lol
That google maps image pretty much convinced me, but I guess you are right.
I really hope they don't stay a rumour for much longer.
A pretzel/norwegian loop would really be awesome.

BTW, I was thinking...
Intamin hasn't made a tophat ride since 2005, I think...
And they've been pretty obsessed with the past vertical drops lately...
What if they make a past vertical tophat?

Anybody come across any officail graphics or layout or anything else about the coaster. I have seen nothing graphic wise and only limited information on the layout.

The only graphic thing there is to find is here:
miraforever.com/index.php
You have a couple construction pics if you scroll down a bit, and the last picture is a google maps image of Sierra Tonante, and it has the highest point, the station and the inversions drawn in...
But, yeah, I don't really think that's official...

I'm not expecting to see any graphic of the layout. We'll have to figure it out from the construction which hasn't really started yet. They still have to finish to clear the area and start with the footers.

Last year I followed the construction of Mammut and the track layout was released by Vekoma on their website after the track was completed. I hope this one will be different.

The rumors says that they are waiting for the official season to end to start the ground work and they already have planned a late opening during the season.

One more thing: I'm still wondering how it's going to go through a 164 feet "top hat" (or whatever it's going to be) with a speed of only 60mph.

I Love Donkeys!

The ride will have three inversions, not four... The layout is some kind of cross over between a Looping and a Mega-Lite Coaster (à la Piraten) with, in addition to the inversions, a top hat and several airtime hills and EGF Turns.

Did you see a drawing of the layout or something?

I am still wondering if it's going to be similar to Maverick. It might have a 164 foot "launched lift hill" and then feature a 60 mph launch at some point afterwards.
