I think it would be a lot less exciting than you are thinking. I'm thinking something like this:

Bigger is not always better.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Sadly, you're probably right. At least you'd get great views on the way down.

This is off-topic but I just have to point out how dumb this is:

It annoys me when people don't understand how things like YouTube work. Your views count toward your channel regardless if it's watched on YouTube or embedded into another page, so why would anyone turn this option on? Ugh...

I'm pointing this out just to help educate people a bit more... Don't be this guy! lol

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

^Even weirder that the owner would turn it on when they have this in the comments section.

As long as the right people are watching and share it. I leave embedding turned on my vids. It counts as a view on YT.

I was talking about this project with a co-worker today, and was curious if there has been much progress lately??

A lot of people in this thread don't seem to understand the difference between how LIM's and LSM's work when they aren't on....

It's simple:
LIM's allow fins to pass through freely while powered off...
LSM's don't allow fins to pass through freely while powered off...

LSM coasters don't need complicated anti-rollback mechanisms like the pneumatics on TTD/Ka or rows of skid brakes on the spaghetti bowls.

I don't know, slow rollback 400 feet sounds quite terrifying to me. Then again, my number 1 scariest ride is the Parachute tower at Great Adventure. :lmao:
