Track Spottings!


Recommended Posts

 

Of course, if the new addtion at SFOG is indeed bigger than what we are expecting, maybe it would be Joker themed, and be a Wingrider...

 

SFOG already has two Joker themed rides, not sure they would build a third.

 

Good call! I hadn't even thought of that. Probably because I don't honestly think this track is going there, and didn't give it much actual thought!

Continuing the discussion about the mysterious green track spotted at the Gerstlauer factory, more track have since appeared, and I'm certain it's a Takabisha clone.

 

First because it uses the old Eurofighter track instead of the new Infinity track. I guess that means it's a clone of an older design and the park didn't want to spend extra money for re-calculus with the new profil. Copy-and-paste.

 

Then it has the quad-tubes track only the Banana Roll of Takabisha has, among all other Gerstlauer coasters.

 

And there, you can see on the left an Eurofighter tower, and on the right, the support for the 45° downward stairs right before the drop. I looked at a reference pic of Takabisha, and it matches.

 

(Those are my personnal pictures)

Call me crazy, but what if that is the WoF 2017 or 2018 coaster that has been rumored?!

There are 2 track colours there. The lighter track matches up with the concept art for Pegasus the Firechaser Express style ride for Parc Asterix.

The darker one... who knows.

 

Exactly. There was also yet another Sky Fly in production for that matter, and on Google Earth you can see a third, red coaster at the back of the factory. Probably for Motion Gate.

Did a bit of digging and found this article from a while back

 

translated from German

Triple Five Mall, New Jersey, USA: On the grounds of the years under construction but for financial reasons never opened Xanadu Mall of Canadian shopping centers-operator Triple Five is by 2016 an entertainment complex in the style of the famous Mall of America opened in Minneapolis. The DreamWorks Amusement Park is intended to be equipped among others with two nested rollercoasters Gerstlauer.

 

The 1000 meters long LSM Coaster is identical with Takabisha in Japan: Right after the station is a heart roller positioned with drop in the launch, the more high-inversions as Corkscrew or dive loop will follow. The last rail third gets a vertical lift. Overall, more than 40 meter high roller coaster will offer seven inversions. The second rail attraction is a spinning coaster with individual vehicles, in addition to classic mouse curves diverse ascents and descents offers and will be thereby fully integrated into the LSM Coaster.

Is this project back on track? this could be the location for that Takabisha clone track (If it is that)

TripleFive looks to have finally squeezed their last incentive out of New Jersey and looks to finally issue bonds to complete the place. They got in there and did a huge amount of work and stopped to extort more favorable terms. Plus they wanted in on any possible ok'ing of casinos in North Jersey. That push is meant to land a Hard Rock branded casino at the racetrack. But Triple Five said, " hey how about us." Did that vote ever get approved for the ballot.?
