appel Posted June 8, 2018 Share Posted June 8, 2018 There is talk on reddit.com about extreme swaying on Steel Vengeance. The ride was down a few hours in the morning and there were several engineers watching the structure......Did anybody notice heavy swaying on that coaster as well? Wonder what they might do about it..... QUOTE from reddit.com: [Looks like a few engineers watching the ride pretty closely. The inversion under the lift hill is swaying pretty badly. I’d imagine that’s what they were working on earlier today. Still running as normal at the moment. 3 Heel_Paul • 4h a board fell from about that area on Monday. I hope to Christ this ride isn't ripping itself apart. ● fumar • 9h When I was there last week both inversions were swaying after the train came through but the bad part was the turn between the inversions. That turn was shaking like crazy after every train. There's also some compression on the first drop but that looked just like what happens the bottom of Goliath's dive loop. (I spent a lot of time in the infield last week) The amount of shaking is really concerning to me. It makes me think of the videos of son of beast. It would suck if they had to put trims in before the mcbr. 3 mynameisntjeffrey • 6h How does the coaster swaying compare to something like this part of this lightning rod video? I feel like the above is normal. If you want to see some real crazy swaying watch this video of the original rattler. 3 ginger_man_9001I305 >> Fury (101) • 5h Engineer here. I was riding it yesterday and noticed it was swaying pretty bad in the turnaround. Not surprised they are concerned about it. I hope their solution is not to trim the drop. Hopefully additional bracing will be a more economical solution. ● jhoosteenSteel Vengeance, Lightning Rod, Storm Chaser • 5h I was able to find this on Instagram. It does move quite a bit, but I wouldn’t say it’s much worse than Lightning Rod’s last turn (Not my video) https://instagram.com/p/BjfhBTvhtwH/ ● fumar • 2h That part doesn't seem bad and neither does the first drop (even though that's where they were looking at this morning). The first inversion shakes more and the turnaround shakes a ton. ● shanew21 • 9h Yes it’s the same part that we were watching. It was more swaying than I had seen on a coaster before. What concerned me is the backstage truck with 3 employees/engineers staring at that exact spot. I’m sure it’s not supposed to be happening to that extent. 1 texx2818 • 8h They were working on the drop this morning.] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
