Dispatch times of 4 minutes for two trains, 6 minutes for one? That doesn't sound much better than X. Sounds like the dropping floor isn't speeding things up that much. Then again, maybe the ops haven't quite mastered everything yet.

Ah, the clever Japanese. I don't think I've ever seen a Japanese tv commercial that wasn't funny.

OK, my text version of my TR is done, and all of the final batch of photos have been sent to RCDB. I will be posting my TR, photos and a video (once I'm done editing it) to a new thread shortly. As soon as I'm done adding in the photos and captions it will be available for your pleasure.

It seriously takes a long time! You guys try checking those seats in a sweltering heat wave. Wears out your back! I hear people all the time yapping in my ear that were taking too long.

I just give them the look.


Cant wait for the T.R.

Moonsault Scramble

Postby Superdasher » Fri Aug 04, 2006 3:54 pm

I recently read about the Moonsault Scramble at Fuji-Q Highland in Japan. It was apparently closed because it was too intense. It is a 207ft Boomerang-style coaster that pulls 6.2Gs ( :shockr: ), and has a unique Pretzel Knot inversion that looks a lot like a Batwing.

Has anyone ever been on it? Maybe you, Chris Belson?
If so, I'd love to hear what it was like.

I seem to recall Robb and Elissa have ridden it. I know they rode a messed-up boomerang somewhere along the line, but I can't recall where.

Nope, we never made it on Moonsault Scramble. :(

There's a big concrete bed where it used to be inside of Dodonpa.
