BeemerBoy Posted June 3, 2010 Share Posted June 3, 2010 I can understand where the rest of you are coming from i.e. that rides need to be tweaked, etc. But the need to reduce the speed by 15 mph from the original speed is a rather large percent error. Yes...we don't know enough to make a final judgment. But still...could their projections have been that much off? And the answer could be "yes". We don't know. True, but is this really all that different from having to remove an entire element from Maverick? What was that quote the engineering student made about engineering being about the science of estimation, or something like that? I'm beginning to just accept the fact that Intamin designs something to be "in the ballpark," builds, and then tweaks from there. Sometimes it's gonna require drastic change, and sometimes not. I'm cool with that. And for the record, I'm expecting the F1 coaster, with its drastic climate and surroundings, to go through the exact same process. We just probably won't hear as much about it.
