I've always had an idea for, like, a super inverted, spinning, suspended coaster. I'll try to get a drawing of what it would look like up as soon as I can.

 

I was surprised to see Mack have already hit on this idea:

Don't think any have been created, but it looks pretty cool. Maybe you should become a coaster designer.

For a high school project at least 15 years ago I designed a wooden rollercoaster called the Dinosaur which was to themed be the world's oldest rollercoaster which was run down and decrepit at a soon to be abadoned park.

 

The ride would be highly themed to be as old as possible, portions would be made fibreglass instead of wood to look rotten and decayed. There would be speakers all over the ride to make cracking wood sounds and there would loud wheel squeals as you passed around each corner.

 

The lift hill would have hydraulics on the side to make it sway and feel as ricketity as possible.

 

Near the end of the ride you would see the track ending and the brakes would slam on with a nice little spark effect with the train finally stopping at least 100-150 feet in the air right at the edge or as near the edge as optically possible to scare riders.

 

Riders would hear over the PA Speakers staff yell, "hang on tight we are coming to get you. Don't worry" All the while you would hear the wood cracking get louder and louder.

 

With the train locked into a section of secret trick track, the entire trick section would actually be a drop ride element, so just when it sounds like the entire wood structure was going down, the entire coaster car would drop 20 stories into an underground tunnel where the coaster portion would resume to the exit area.

 

While I had always thought that the technology needed for the ride would be unreasonable or expensive, the fake stop and trick track were used on expedition everest so it might have been possible after all.

 

Oh well.

Sounds like fun, but I know of something a little more exciting.

Links on that site are out of order. Luckily, I saved this MOV. :)

Not sure if this would be considered a ride. But qeue lines that have benches built into one side all the way through the qeue. After walking all day would be nice to have a decent sit while we wait. Not sure about ideas about more stand up style coasters... for the same reason... after walking all day, and waiting in line, it is just good to have a seat when you finally board to ride. The last thing I want to do is stand up more on a ride. LOL

Ive made many new ride ideas, one of my favorites i call the giant fan. Ill post pictures of my drawings ASAP. I also made my own kind of drop tower. Pics will come later. Years back i thought of a ride very similar to the Huss tobble tower, and once i found out that Dollywood was getting one i was so mad, because i thought of it (not saying Huss stole it.) And also around the same time i thought of the tobble tower ride i thought of an inside out banked turn like on Steel Hawg at Indiana Beach.

Well, I often like dreaming of owning an amusement park based on my cartoons someday in the future. And in my cartoon world geezers are a scary thing to avoid at all costs. So I was thinking of a "Spiderman" type simulator called "Attack of the grannies". In which you get chased around by a mob of angry old people. It's really suppsoed to be more funny that awsome but nevertheless.

Night of the Nearly Dead?

My friends sometimes think of silly things. The scariest movie about: Night/Return of the Dead. It's parody: [see above]...

I've always dreamed of opening a park called "Sports World" (sponsered by ESPN) when I get older. There would be plenty of cool new rides. Some highlights would be a stand-up coaster called Golf Master (with golf-cart style trains, of course)! It would follow the terrain all the way around [fake] golf course.

 

Another ride would be called Hit-n-Run. Riders board in the center of a HUGE bat, carved so that they could see out. The bat would spin around its handle, and would also flip vertically as it spins around. I could post some pictures, but I drew them when I was 8, so... lol

 

The last one is a golf club the swings back and forth until eventually flipping all the way around. Its origin would also be the handle. Riders would be help in the head of the club.

 

I think it would be pretty cool...

^^^You made me laugh out loud with the "Night of the nearly dead" thing.

 

^^those sound like pretty creative ideas, and I believe if oyu think about it some more you can come up with awsome ideas for it, though a golf-themed coaster hardly sounds too thrilling. Maybe if it was a family ride called something like "The putter."

Heh. Nice. And I who just watched The Accidental Golfer. Maybe the Golf course might not be so [fake]. Could be fun to host a Golf tournament at some points, but then the guests can't ride anything. They'll have to stay in the back until it comes to the putting. Also, maybe just for spice have the rides run (without people of course) so that when someone hits and hoped they were aiming right, a coaster comes in the way and picks up the ball, or the arm of some other ride gets in the way. Fair way? Nah... FUN (un)fair way!

Oh, and maybe some houses for sports training (e.g. Vardon Machines training Golfers).

I REALLY wanted to find those old drawings, because I personally thought they were pretty good for an 8 year old! lol

 

But alas, my search was unsuccessful

 

BUT, I can prove that I came up with a "wet" version of an SLC when I was 4, and I'll even post the drawing on here! I should have patented the design! STUPID VEKOMA! lol

It reminds me of those sleds they use to train jet pilots for emergency water landings--the ones where the trainee is dumped into a pool and then has to undo the safety belts and escape.

Well, I think it would be super cool because you'd be being pushed back into your seat while dropping. You'd also feel weird because no other tower drops like that and you would be hanging out 1-2 metres from the track. Also, due to the fact 4 extra supports would be connected to the tower itself, hopefully it could go higher than the current drop rides.
