Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Last year they retracked some colossus making it pretty smooth. Just increasing the lift speed or removing the pause from the top might help.

 

Most importantly it wouldn't kill to repaint the thing...

 

^^^^ Lex Luthor^^^ having 4ft of sway and vibrating when Superman is launched sounds orgasmic.

After watching CBS2 news, it has been revealed that Lex Luthor's drop is 385 feet. This was revealed during an interview with Tim Burkhart. There is also a little music at the top where Lex says "Today is your lucky day. Your life will be changed forever." and the ride drops during "forever". Nice touch! Probably won't be working next year though.

Now that you ruined the surprise ....

 

Some of the fun of drop towers is that you don't know when the drop is coming. Having it drop on "forever" takes the anticipation out of it. I wouldn't mind if it stopped working after the first year.

Really cool audio! Did we find out what the exact height of the Giant Drop DROP is? Not that Lex Luthor won't be amazing, especially with the audio.

I totally agree. If the audio is mounted on the gondola I give it a year. If it is mounted on the tower at the top of the drop I'd give it longer.

"And that’s when the shaking starts. The gondola seats rumble violently as the coaster climbs the track, causing the tower sways up to four feet. It feels like an earthquake in a skyscraper - only you’re strapped to the outside of the building." - By Brady MacDonald, Los Angeles Times staff writer

 

Oh hell yeah! This alone makes up for any height numbers. Can't wait to ride!

Now I've never ridden Colossus, but it holds a special place in my heart as it was one of the first roller coasters I ever laid my eyes on. It was the first coaster featured on an old VHS tape I had called "Here Comes a Roller Coaster". To this day I think it's one of the most beautiful coasters ever built, especially back when it first opened.

If Rocky Mountain could simply restore the ride back to it's original glory rather than making it as crazy and thrilling as possible, in my opinion that would be ideal.

 

Edit: Oh yeah, and get Gerstlauer to cook up some new trains for Revolution, please and thank you.

I'm watching the webcast right now! A test just went up.
The music that they are playing actually sounds decent...although it will go back to Nicki Minaj after tomorrow sadly.

 

Good quality so far. This music is putting me into a trance... Bring on Bonnie...

Indeed.

Was that "Nice try, Superman" part of Lex Luthor or something that was played to the media people over the speakers? And if it's part of the ride, I wonder if it only plays when Lex and Superman are running simultaneously?

^I noticed that too. The footage they're showing now though looks fine.

I felt the same way about the silly vibrating seats on Mach Tower at Busch Gardens Williamsburg--the ride is better without that effect "advertising" the drop.

 

Looking forward to checking out Drop of Doom some day.

Did you hear how she said "gondolas"! She's making me crack up!

Yes!!! LOL I was hysterical!

 

I enjoyed the webcast, especially since I am in Missouri. Can't wait to ride this beast in December!
