Kanonen - Thoughts?


Recommended Posts

If you haven't seen them already, RCDB posted some new pics of Liseberg's new Intamin Rocket coaster. I still don't know what to make of it. It cool be REALLY good, in that crazy compact Schwarzkopf kind of way, or it could be just totally lame....what do you think.

 

Check out these new pics:

Track goes EVERYWHERE!!!

Can it even be called a tophat? Or is it like a bunny hill with a twist??

I can't even tell which way you'll be going through all this mess!

There had better be some airtime on that bunny hill!!!

 

Anyway, I'm psyched about this ride. I just hope it delilvers!

Looks like there may be trims on both little airtime hills. But look on the right side of this picture:

Yea, thats the bunny OFF the base of the tophat. Trims or not, I will still bet theres going to be ample airtime on this ride. I would also imagine itll be pretty intense. Its kind of hard to make a small ride like this, much less a rocket, not intense. Theres just not a whole lot of room for error and when push comes to shove, itll get run through a touch faster. But thats probably why there may be trims, its probably going to haul.

 

Personally, looks like a double thumbs up right now. The entrance to the Barrell roll is SICK!

 

Looking back at entrance !!!

Just because it's small doesn't make it a bad coaster, although it didn't look all that appealing at first to me. After looking @ the pix of the tangled mess of track, this shorter ride looks like it would pack quite a punch. I wouldn't mind SFMW getting something like this...(They have height restrictions of 150 ft for those who don't know).

Well, Im going to Liseberg in May so Im really looking forward to ride Kanonen. The loop is almost as tall as the tophat so Im sure theres some serious airtime over the tophat

 

Heres what I read:

 

blahblahblahblah going to liseberg blahblahblah everyone will hate me blahblahblah

 

heh, yea, lucky sucker. Well, guess it is one of the few really good rides in that area. Balder looks frickin sweet too for an intamin woodie.

^ See, that's EXACTLY what I thought. When you hear rumors about a park like Cypress Gardens going to pay a few million for a Volare....what would the difference in cost be for something like this?

 

I can only imagine the HUGE difference in GP reactions to even the worst rocket coaster versus something like a Volare.

Robb why did you have to say something like that...

 

Those sort of rides are about all I can ever hope for at a park like Six Flags Elitch Gardens... All they ever put in is those standard small dinky things that no one really gets excited about. Now this year they are putting in a ride in the water park that is exactly the same as what has been at WaterWorld since like 1999. I wish SixFlags would splurge on a new custom ride for us but I don't think it is gonna happen. Hell I would be exstatic for a X-Car which would fit perfectly in the small footprints of the park.
