Intamin 12-Inversion coaster

Postby chickenbowl » Sat Jan 01, 2011 7:49 pm

On Intamin's newly transformed website, I was looking through some of the pictures they have. I found this concept drawing of how a 12-Inversion coaster could be designed.
I really like the design. It is like a mix of a Mega-lite, Fahrenheit, and Colossus.

I thought this was interesting and worth sharing.

It's an improvement for a 10 inversion coaster if I could take a corkscrew and roll out.

I'm actually glad Intamin went with a -sort of- new layout than Colossus because they could have just easily added 2 more barrel rolls. The layout looks pretty fun (judging from me following it with the mouse) and wouldn't mind if a park like Kentucky Kingdom decided to build it!

I agree with Jerrykoala2112, I would love to see this design built in a smaller park. On a side note, when I attempted to go to Intamin's website, I got a temp site that is advertising Musical Carousels, Railroad Tycoon and Ice Skating Rinks. Found it extremely odd that Intamin would completely disable their site while revamping it.

It looks like a good design, and a lot better than their 8 and 10 inversion coasters. However, where those have an overuse of barrel rolls, this design seems to have an overuse of corkscrews. From a rider comfort point, corkscrews aren't the best element, and IMO, if a park was to go for the record, a 100% custom design would be the best choice. I know there are only so many different elements a coaster can have, but all the corkscrews seem repetitive just like the barrel rolls on the current designs. I'd still love to see this design get built though, it's just that I think it can be better. Although, considering how compact this ride is, it's great that Intamin went with a new design that didn't just mean adding two more barrel rolls as mentioned in other posts.

For my money, if this gets thrown into the Intamin production mix any time in the next few years, it's going to China. I would be thoroughly surprised if it didn't. That aside, I like the layout, but I imagine that the portion from after the loop to before the barrel rolls - the corkscrews - would be pretty uncomfortable and headbangy if it wasn't silky smooth. I do like the Mega-Lite-esque drop and turn and the first two inversions, though. Very different.

I don't see the new website yet either. Still get an under construction page. Very interesting design on that coaster.

Funny you should post that because I actually have the NL versions of both that (the lift hill version) and a launched version I downloaded a while back. I don't remember who made them or what site I got them from (probably either here or CS), but they are very well done.

Nice mixture of airtime hills as well. The website still isn't working for me either as well however.
