It looks as though you get a choice if you want to ride floorless or not on those 4 seater X Car trains.
I quit my job at the helium factory last week...I refused to be spoken to in that tone!

Is the flume-in-flume technology literally a slide that goes through the big side?

^I think the flume-in-flume thing is more like a small slide that has a drop into a much wider trough, so that boat rocks from one end of the large portion to the other as it goes through the course (which looks like it could be incredible).

I didn't think it was possible to love S&S any more... until I saw those new trains. I'm also dying to ride those looping slides.

^^Yeah, I want to see whats actually inside those Mega Tubes in the layouts and see how it works.

But if thats the case, why have such a long tube? I wouldn't think the raft would really utilize the whole size at that length. And the pic says "Tube inside a tube"

The large tube is the Mega Tube. I believe the "flume in flume" is different than the mega tube (though possibly related).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Update #5 - 3:10 P.M. - Martin & Vleminckx, the Gravity Group, and Food!

Image

Martin & Vleminckx had some very interesting wood coaster concepts on display.

Image

This is what they are calling the "High Five" coaster...

Image

Yes, this is exactly what it looks like and M&V say that if Shaq and Yao Ming ride, they might actually touch!

Image

And here is the ride layout.

Image

M&V are also responsible for the Zippin Pippin rebuild.

Image

And this...THIS is a launched wooden shuttle... I AM NOT KIDDING!!!

Image

They claim this hill will produce the longest, most sustained moment of airtime ever!

Image

Now this is what IAAPA is all about!

Image

The Gravity Group is showing off the Timberliner trains and FOUR wood coaster projects for 2011.

Image

Hooray! The Voyage WILL open with these in 2011!

Image

Yes, FOUR new Gravity Group woodies in 2011!

Image

NERD SHOT!

Image

Mmmmm.... MUST EAT PIZZA!!!
Image

I Love Donkeys!

Flume-in-Flume just means that the flume has a large enough diameter to allow for another slide to pass through it. Much like the picture shows, a piece of green slide inside of the bigger one. I however, don't understand how this could be achieved from a support standpoint.

^Maybe supporting the FIF from the top part of the tube? I don't think the rafts will get that high...
