New S&S Drop Ride VIDEO!

Postby robbalvey » Sun Jul 31, 2005 7:15 pm

Hey everyone,

Johnny Upside down has sent me the video he shot during the recent tour of the S&S facility and the new park they have opened.

The ride looks pretty crazy!

That is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Does it just come to an abrupt stop, or does it bounce abit?

I didnt get to ride as it was done by drawing. The few that got to ride said that it is a free fall to the bottom and that the stop was quick and forceful like a couple of G's. They said it was a smooth stop just a fast forceful one.. Also the ride is 360 feet tall and said to run at 90+ mph. It is one wild contraption.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Okay, looking at the video first had me a bit confused.

After looking at the pictures it seems that you are standing up for the ride. Is this accurate? It's almost like the wonka glass elevator drop ride.

I can't see this being installed at a US park anytime soon though.

Take a look at this photos http://www.johnnyupsidedown.com/events05/ss46a.jpg
Look inside the tube you will see a saddle like the Insane ride had.
And they had a seat belt that was over the lap and over the shoulder I believe. Probably like the orgianl Insane rides seats were.
Otherwise they were in a standing position but seated in saddle and straped in.

It looks fun but in a way, it looks kinda ghetto...I mean, it looks like something we would build in our backyard with rusted scrap metal and leftover plywood, a few recycled ride pieces and voila! A new thrill ride!
Also, the botttom portion looks like a waterslide.

^Dude, this is just a prototype, it probably wouldn't look half as bad in a park. All prototype rides look pretty bad. But just because they're for testing.
