^ who cares

 

 

is that necessary? there are so many goofy/obsessive/arbitrary crap posted everywhere (not necessarily this forum but every forum on the internet) and youre going to ask "who cares?" on this forum where there have been worse questions/speculations. you know there are plenty of discussion about the most mundane things.. come on man..

I have so say, credit to the workers. They have done a magnificent job getting this up so quickly. In the cold and snow, it mustn't be easy. They all deserve great praise, especially based on how cold this winter has been!

 

EDIT: I also should add, that the guys over at Six Flags seem to be doing a bold effort constructing Goliath in the cold and snow

Some people actually like to have civilized discussions about the hobby they love. Sorry you disagree.

 

It's an element, period. It's a pointless conversation, since there is no universally defined definition or standard for each element. What this particular element is referred to won't have any affect on the sensation it brings.

Fixed.

 

And yes. I agree. I have no affect from your attitude. In fact, I just want to tune it out.

You might not know much about elements but there are clear differences between an inline twist, heartline roll, barrell roll, ect. I can't tell great from the photos so I wanted to know. Which of these elements it is closest to does have a dramitic affect on the feel of the element and the sensation it brings. Another reason I asked is that I'm working on a NL2 recreation of this ride currently and would like to make it as accurate as possible.

They may be done by lunch time today. That is really impressive how fast they were able to assemble it. Might be able to start testing in mid-Feb/Early March. Still alot of mechanical/engineering work to do, but man that was fast.

I think B&M manufactures the trains overseas at their home plant in Switzerland, if I remember correctly from previous builds, but I'm not sure about that either. They're still one of the most secretive manufacturers in the industry, as there are no pictures of their train assembly facilities anywhere. I still think it was amazing that they let people see the track building for Gatekeeper at the steel plant. Only other time I can remember they allowed that was when National Geographic filmed that roller coaster special a few years ago.

Track work completed on record-breaking Banshee roller coaster at Kings Island

 

 

 

MASON, Ohio – Track work on the longest inverted roller coaster in the world, “Banshee,” was completed Thursday at Kings Island. Track piece #100 was the final piece of track installed on the 4,124-foot long $24 million steel coaster, being lowered into place by workmen at 10:04 a.m. It took the Adena Corporation a total of 160 days to erect the ride after the first piece of track was delivered to the 364-acre amusement and waterpark August 16, 2013. Banshee will make its highly-anticipated debut April 18 when Kings Island opens for the 2014 season.
