p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

If you look really close at the video, just after or part of the drop, the track twists before it gets to the first inversion, almost like it's going into that inversion upside down or something. Although it could just be a large amount of banking coming out of the drop.

After watching the video and carefully viewing everything...

 

Looks like a twisted dive followed by a banked turn (low to the ground?) that goes into the immelmann... Out of that into the loop and g-roll... Turn to the left (another low to the ground?) into the batwing element... After into another loop followed by a sharp turn to the right which leads into a drawn out g-roll of some sort, maybe like that odd-looking one in Europe (can't remember name) into another helix, bunny hop, turn right into brakes.

 

Looks like invert to me, clearly. The heart-lining of the g-roll on the prints and supports make sense.

 

Working in a consulting engineering office and seeing plenty of prints in regards to structural and commercial, those are legit. No question.

 

Really looking forward to this one.. *drool*

It looks like a new take on a Batwing, because on normal Batwing you enter and exit from the same direction but on this one you don't.

Arrow made one on Dragon Mountain in Marineland, I think it's called a Bowtie (which I'm okay with because I think bowties are cool).

 

As for the record, we're probably looking at most inversions on an inverted coaster, tallest/fastest inverted coaster, tallest coaster with inversions, tallest inversion on a roller coaster... They could spin it any way they want to.

 

Curious - does anyone think that the trains will have zero-cars on them like Alpengeist's (for extra weight)?

If it dropped directly into the loop it would rival full throttle's 160' loop, but it goes into something than a loop so I am thinking a little taller than alpengiest which is around 106'.

 

edit, why did it censor the new premier ride at MM?

I think there will be seven world records for seven owls

 

Tallest invert:220-250ft

Longest invert:5,000-6,000ft

Fastest invert:75 mph

Most inversions on invert:9

Longest drop on invert:250 ft

Steepest drop on invert 80 degrees

Most expensive invert:30 mil

Here's a terrible overlay, but it's to scale. For reference purposes, all the little dots on the blueprints are SOB's old footers. The helix towards the end of this new ride will sit right inside where the second helix on SOB was. According to this, the lift hill of the new ride will be ~250 feet in length. If the lift hill was at a 45 degree angle, that would equal a lift height of ~250 feet, but I don;t think lifts on inverted coasters are typically that steep. If it was at a 35 degree angle, it would put the lift height at ~180 feet. I'd say a record height for an inverted is possible, but it's only going to be slightly taller than Alpeingeist if it is...

Lift hill through the loop, So an invert based on Kumba?

 

If this thing is more nemesis or raptor and less MCBR-nerfed weakfest, It will be tops, otherwise it'll be another alpengeist.

 

Not that i'm complaining, Big inverts are tons of fun even if they're not always the most intense thing on the block

Here you go... Just tossed it together in Photoshop.

 

My opinion... If these are the real blueprints, this coaster may be large, but nowhere near the size of SOB. I'm fairly sure I have everything scaled right as well... If you look the service road running through the blueprint, it lines up with the map, as does Delirium, and Flight Deck.
