I really hope that system works - shooting in between the bolt assemblies at 60+mph leaves no room for error - not even a micrometer.

Exactly. I am a bit leery about this but I'm sure it's been tested and we'll just have to accept that they know what they're doing!

I wouldn't put MY name on the line with that kind of design, but lets hope it works out as planned! Very odd to say the least!

I would like to know how you know what the tolerances are and a micrometer is very very small. (A thickness of a hair is between 17-100 micrometer)
I can't think of anything mechanical that uses a tolerance of one micrometer.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I think he was joking. saying micrometer is like saying, "That goes a bajillion miles per hour"

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Your'e both assuming that the wheel will be so wide that it will just barely fit between the bolts; it doesn't have to be that wide. Also, with a steel coaster, they can hold a much tighter tolerance then a wooden coaster. If there is anything to worry about with this new coaster design, it would be the fact that so many parts of the Texas Giant instillation seem to be a bit off and not quite lining up.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Update #8 - 7:20 P.M. - Mack Rides, LOTS OF FOOD, and Premier Rides!

Don't forget to comment and let us know what you think of IAAPA 2010 so far!!

Image

Mack Rides! Makers of the awesome Blue Fire and TPR's favourite park in Europe, Europa Park!

Image

New water ride designs from Mack.

Image

We spoke with Roland Mack, Vice Chairman of Mack Rides.

Image

Our friend Michael from Europa was here too!

Image

It wouldn't be IAAPA without funnel cake!

Image

And of course you MUST have Dippin' Dots!

Image

OM NOM NOM!

Image

The Dippin' Dots guy says that Six Flags Great Adventure is getting a launched under water coaster for 2011. No joke!

Image

More pizza...

Image

HELLO! Kitty.

Image

If you want air hockey...IAAPA is the place for it!

Image

Premiere Rides had a car from their recently announced LSM shuttle at Trans Studio.

Image

We are told this new coaster will be similar to Mr. Freeze...but indoors!

Image

Premier Rides sold a Drifting Coaster to a park in Abu Dhabi that is currently sitting in boxes. :(

Image

And what is a drifting coaster? Jim will explain it in our IAAPA video coverage!

Image

And the fate of this ride? No one actually knows for sure!

Image

Some information about the Trans Studio coaster.

Image

And when you need your chain fixed, Premier are the guys you want to call!

Ha! That's actually a VERY good question! I guess y'all will have to wait and see! ;)

The Drifting Coaster sounds [sexually suggestive comment deleted per local decency standards].

Seriously, this thread is like Christmas morning, all day long, and in November.
