Yes, and that is why SFGAd will always be a trend setter, or at least try to be. It only has 2 clones, S:UF, and B:TR while other parks have cloned the Mr. Freeze premier rides as well as B:TR and S:UF. At least I think.
I don't consider KK a clone. I think it's been altered anough to be called custom.
I'm still a bit weirded out that we don't have a Goliath.
April 22, 2006: We poured the foundation for Tango and the ride is scheduled for delivery and installation April 26. The foundation slab for the merchandise kiosk is scheduled to be poured today and installation is scheduled for Mon., Tues., and Wed. of next week. Foundation for the ride photo kiosk is scheduled for Mon.
We are fully erected with El Toro in phase 1, 2, 3 and 4. We fully tracked out in phase 1, 2 and 3. 60 percent of tracking is completed in phase 4 and will be finished by next Friday. We started to erect bents in phase 5 and 6 starting at the cross-over section. Erection of the stairs and ramp section for the station is scheduled for Wed.
No official notice has come out, but someone told me that Kingda Ka had a major break down today. So I went to gadv.com and found some info on it.
Here's what one of the posters witnessed
Ok today at 9:45 Ka broke down on the switchtrack. I thought no biggie! The 20 min later they test it and boom all I hear is this loud roar at the end of the launch track. People said Ka had sparks flying everywhere and stuff. I seriously felt like I was witnessing FinalD4! Well Ka is pretty much screwed as of now. I didn't see any break fins pop up and it did clear the tower. The key factors in this could be breaks,train,fins, or catch car! It does not look good
Does anyone know, when TTD snapped a cable, did it do something like what KK did?
