Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

That picture basically confirms a pre-lift similar to the CA RMCs, not that it makes any difference to me. That's probably what that twisty track was for anyway.

 

doesn't look like there's much there. like one little hump? that's all it looked like from where the ledgers were placed before the track. but me too, i could care less what happens before the lift. i care more post lift.

^^ That track looks more red than brown. Is it just me?

 

It's so weird that they would use a color so close to what SF has used on so many of their RMCs. Nonetheless this is exciting stuff.

Looks kind of maroon-ish in the sun, I think it'll look great on that massive (well maybe slightly less massive now) structure.

Having a couple bumps on the way to the lift is nice. I've been on Joker (SFDK) and Twisted Colossus, the pre-lifts added something positive to the ride (Joker more than TC).

 

Can't wait until the full layout is released (or leaked ...).

I didn't say the track looked bad just surprised they are using a red-ish hue.

 

Also, I don't see these bumps in the pre-lift you guys are talking about. It looks like a straight curve with maybe one little hump. And you're definitely not any kind of airtime going around that curve at 5 mph so who cares.

I see the same thing. F**king Nitro has a better pre-lift than this ride, but who cares if after the lift it does a bunch of insane bullsh*t?

I'm starting to get this feeling that we are going to know most of the layout before they even announce this lol

I second this.

Wow...that is an incredibly steep lift. Nice.

 

yea, inb4 the resident armchair engineers argue in circles about it for the next 8 weeks

 

But we're due for another conversation about "tensile strength."

 

As for my list of top CP attractions:

Millennium Force

Maverick

Beer Man

...

Everything else

everything else?? As in you just dont like the other coasters? Or they are equal to you? I personally thought TTD and Magnum were awesome too.O.O

Everything else is good, but mostly equal in my book. When I go to parks I focus on what I really like and hit a few other fun things along the way.

 

I fail to see how 10 seconds of track attempting to be fun is vastly superior to track that lasts 1 second but gets to the fun quicker.

 

Ten years ago no one gave a f*** about LED lights on their cars. Now, everyone has to have them or their car is somehow inferior. Marketing combined with stupidity. Want vs. need.

 

Either way, I agree with most of the posters I usually agree with... I see a pretty normal mostly flat turn.

Here's a better view of it if you're interested. It will be two small humps, also. This is definitely what that wonky banked track was for. TC's pre-lift does nothing for me, but I suppose it's better than simply straight track?

I'm much more interested in that drive-by video than some hard to see grainy pictures. Thanks for posting the link chickenbowl and if you find more videos from them as construction continues feel free to slide the link in here

That video was posted yesterday (see one page back), and that's what I was referring to. I looked again still don't see it but whatever I really don't care about one (possibly two if you're somehow seeing something I'm not) little bunnyhops the train will take at 5mph.

Unless this will be like Joker where you leave the station pretty fast (an almost pseudo-launch), I don't see how those two mini-humps will be that fun. I personally enjoy the pre-lifts on TC and Joker, of course they're nothing compared to what comes after the lift-hill.

Why do people care. It is just a small hill to make going to the hill more interesting. If you want standard designed, speak to B and M, but this is why I love RMC (even though I am yet to go on one) and that is due to how everything is funky and unique.

There's track for the first bump at the end of the turn and the ledgers in place suggest a second bump will be after that. But yeah, I really don't care about them either. If you really want to see it, watch carefully from 1:10 to 1:20 of the video.

 

Also from that video, you can see that the steeper new lift profile is now exceeding the old in height... If CP shifted their webcam by 1 degree, we'd be able to get a better angle of this!

 

It looks like it will be massive!

 

It's still a ways from the height of the old lift hill. Based on what we're seeing right now it looks like it will end up higher and I think that's going to be the case, but it's not there yet and we all have absolutely no way of knowing this right now.

 

No matter what ends up happening with the stupid pre-lift (that really doesn't matter at all anyway) and how tall this is, it's going to be amazing and I can't wait to see it built.

Obviously the ledgers aren't taller than the total height yet... I was saying that the ledgers have surpassed the the old profile - That means new wood has been erected to make the structure taller and accommodate the new angle.

 

The red solid line is confirmed by the currently placed ledgers. The theoretical trajectory based on this lift angle seems to put the new total height well over the old, by how much we can't say yet.
