I've never been on a Katapult, looks like fun. Does it go forwards and backwards like a shuttle loop? How does it pick up enough speed to get through the loop?

If you look at the pictures in the link in the first post, you will see that there are friction wheels to bring the coaster train around most of the track. The top of the loop is the only part without wheels.

Great news another Schwarzkopf coaster has been saved. :b :b

Anyone got a pic of the whole layout...?

Is it like a "Shuttle Coaster" e.g. Thunderlooper from ex Alton Towers

I read there were only a few madebuilt, which other parks have one of these.?

The layout couldnt have been more simple http://www.rcdb.com/ig949.htm?picture=2 . Its kinda like a powered looping coaster.

Here you can find some info about the Katapult coasters that were made http://www.rcdb.com/model47.htm

Yay!, So they ARE going to build the Katapult-coaster! That's great, i've always wanted to ride one of these, but since they were almost exstinct...
...Gotta know your classics!

Anyway its great Mirabilandia is building this! I just wonder what the ride will be like and how many times it goes thru the loop...

This has to be one of the shortest coaster rides I have seen (not counting local fairs), but I wouldn't mind having one in my backyard!!

I saw the video. I was disappointed. :(

Hope it will take a programming tweak to get it to run longer, or even backwards!
