Heide Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I have found an other update.

Some inspections.

An other support on it's place, to become the highest support of the ride.

The connected zero G roll in the background. Also some new support.

A lift hill piece. The next step is likely to finish the first drop and the lift hill.

Keep B&M's nice and clean.

Catwalks lying and waiting.

The first drop so far.

Highest support is now done.

For more pictures and source click here. If they keep it up they will finish track work on the ride before the end of the 2013 season. It will be nice to be able to look at those pictures.

^ Yep. So does GateKeeper, The Swarm, and X-Flight. It's called a wing-over drop.

 

I don't believe that's what he referring to. The drop on this and X-Flight fully invert further down the half loop (the tracks at about 90* when the half loop starts). It's slightly different than Gatekeeper and Swarm (where they reach the full 180* in the roll before entering the half loop). They're all still wing-over drops, but he was noting the shaping differences and similarities between the group.

Yes, I was noting how both this and X-Flight have a rounder drop than The Swarm or GateKeeper.

^ I have noticed that this usually happens when the track twists to the side to which the bottom of the drop goes. Let me explain better, on x-flight the track twists to the right and then the layout continues to the right of the lift (if you are on it), here it all happens to the left. On gatekeeper, the twist is to the right but then the immelmann is on the left side of the lift and on the swarm the twist is done to the left and then the track continues to the right. I don't know if I've made myself clear but what I mean is that when the track is fully inverted before the actual drop it means the coaster will then come out on the other side, if it isn't then the bottom of the drop will be on the side to which the track twised before.

(if you're facing the lift) twist to the left, bottom of the drop (and next element) on the left of the lift too

here the twist is to the left but the bottom of the drop and zero-g are located on the right of the lift

See what I mean?

Have found an other update":

Immelmann hasn't changed that much. Shop however.

The airtime-hill goes to the Immelmann. Also the pieces between the Zero G and Immlemann are being lift in place.

The shop gets along nicely.

Airtime-hill is almost done.

Sky-view from the Drop Tower.

The almost completed track work.

Source and more pictures here.

 

Its ridiculous how fast this is going. I seem them finishing track work in a day or 2. Anyway it looks beautiful look forward to see it finished in 2014 for myself.
