^ You mean like an Aquatrax?



Imagine Divertical with a layout pre-drop like that. (And yes Intamin classifies Aquatrax coasters as water rides so it counts).

I dont count that as a water coaster. To me, personally, its a launch coaster and theyve named it Aquatrax simply because it has water sprayed on the track at some points. Atlantis Adventure looks fantastic, but its a completely different design to DiVertical.

The park said there was gonna be a coaster section, right?

So what if the coaster section has a layout like that with a lift hill instead of a launch? The park's been pretty secretive with the layout so who knows for sure how well the coaster is gonna turn out? In the end, this is still Intamin we're talking about and they're known for building sick coasters.

We all have opinions, and I could be proven wrong, but at the moment it doesnt look promising. I'd be more re-assured if it featured the usual intamin box track, that would make me think of it as a hyper-water coaster. Also, do we know how steep the drop is? Is it the drop in the pic of the lift, because if its the drop it doesnt look very steep.

The drop doesn't need to be steep to be fun.

It's kinda understandable to generate opinions of a ride when the park releases info, but in this case, we know almost nothing about the ride other than the final drop. IMO it's kinda hard to generate an opinion based on a ride we know nothing about.

The lift will be the same system used on Pilgrims' Plunge at Holiday World.

The question about the coaster section can be answered with this photo. Hard to see, but there is definitely an uphill section judging by supports.

I'm starting to like this colors, it seems these colors just grow on you. Though, I never would expect a blue tracked ride with orange supports would look so good.

Stunt Fall has very similar colors and that looks really good.

I wonder if there's a technical reason for why these rides don't have drops past 45* - similar to how the 4D coasters' drops aren't completely vertical because the trains need to be in complete contact with the second set of rails so that they flip at the bottom? Maybe it has to do with the middle rail being an upstop system, if that's true.

This looks really cool from the inside of the park, so I'm excited to see what it looks like when it's all finished and themed!
