Looking at the course the footers take after that banking it appears that the only way that "turn" can go is to the right of what's pictured meaning that is a zero-g roll. Obviously we need to wait and see if that's true, but right now it looks like that's what's going on. Could we really be seeing another attempt at an inverting woody?
I know where my coaster travels are taking me next year.
It's definately not a zero-g roll. This is right after the drop, and the course goes up into a 270-degree turn of some sort. It looks like the first 180 degrees is an overbank, and the last 90 extends the dive into the valley back towards the base of the drop. It looks funky, but I can't imagine it doing a roll here simply because of the layout. Now it could do an inverted overbank - I've been expecting it to be extremely pitched at the very least, but the supports are so funky it will be difficult to tell what's going on until track is actually in place.
Greetings fellow coaster geeks, Uncle Chadster is here bringing you the finest coaster porn found anywhere across these parts. What am I talking about? Well, you'll just have to look to find out! Oh, while I'm at it, want to know what they are calling SDC's super secret to be announced coaster? I thought so
Can't get enough pictures? My full album can be reached by clicking here
Strap yourselves in...
Because we are ready to blast off
To see what we can see from through the trees
Because I think that fat lady is about to sing
As this looks in no way shape or form like a movie screen anymore
Although it does appear as if they will still have a concession stand
several of them in fact
So chuga chuga choo choo we go on this 101 degree day.
When people on the train yelled "Fire in the Hole" They really meant their seats.
huh, what's this?
Perhaps an Old West town?
Look at him, looking all sexy and photogenic
and you too
Please, don't tease me, tell me what you are going to call it!!
So after the train dives off the drop, you swoop along the terrain and fly up and over the top
How do I know this?
You'll see ;)
you can sorta see here, but keep moving on, there really isn't anything to see here
So if you launched an imaginary coaster train off the imaginary track, you might end up like this.
"Huh? They's buildin sometin down ther? What they call it?"
Now it starts to get interesting folks, pay attention to the left
See the nice curve on the left coming from the lift then aiming towards the left (if you are riding it, it would curve left)
and it climbs up into an over bank before darting back towards the lift and through the hill
If you look far out on the right, you will see the track leading into the turnaround ;)
Looking through the trees you can see the track with what kinda looks like fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo hill, but not, this is close to the bottom of the drop
Next we take a look at the movie screen
Hey look! Land mines!
Wonder why those are here, hmmm, oh yeah, I kinda already told you, it comes back through here and busts over the lift hill!
Speaking of the lift hill, let's check in with the ticketing booth.
The anti-rollbacks are in along with the projector and chain tray
Nice shiny new projector.
The electrical equipment is also in place, possibly even the housings for the ride computers.
So you want to know what they call it? I told you I'd tell you, sooo...
They call it....INCOMPLETE! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Get it, they call it incomplete, hehehehehe
Looking back at the loading dock you can see the track is all in place in the station, er, ticketing booth
wait a second...
what are all these land mines...it can only mean one thing....
The imaginary coaster is going to come back over the train and into the ticketing booth. This thing is gonna travel out behind the roundhouse. OMFG, it's huge! (that's what she said)
So there that is, took the train 3 times today, yes three. Why? video coming later this week ;)
For now, I'll holster my pistol. August 9th is the the big date, and for those following along at home, you can go to their website for more details ;)
