Mirabilandia Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

A german coaster-page said that it will be a water coaster like pilgrims`s plunge, with the same elevator lift but not just one drop. The report says that in many news it was reported that it will have 45 degree at the first drop with a little watersplash effect, but not one that will stop the train. Because after this there will be a short coaster part before it will finally splash down into the water... so it seems that intamin finally will use his coaster style logflume to build a water coaster like the "MACK" ones.

 

Here is the complete german text:

The Edge, Mirabilandia, Italien: Nach dem LSM-Coaster iSpeed im Jahre 2009 folgt 2012 die Wasserachterbahn The Edge. Dabei wurde durch diverse Medien bekannt, dass ein Vertikallift wie auf Holiday Worlds Pilgrims Plunge die teilweise schienengeführten Achterbahnboote auf rund 50 Meter Höhe bringt, von wo eine 45° steile Abfahrt mit über 100 Stundenkilometern durch ein Wasserbecken ohne gigantische Splash Effekte führt. Dem schliesst sich ein kurzer schienengeführter Achterbahnpart an, der schliesslich mit einer Wasserung enden soll.

google translation:

The Edge, Mirabilandia, Italy: After the LSM Coaster iSpeed ​​in the year 2009, 2012 followed by the water coaster The Edge. It was through various media announced that a vertical lift as on Holiday World's Pilgrims Plunge, the partial rail-guided roller coaster boats to around 50 meters height provides, where a 45 ° steep descent with over 100 kilometers an hour through a pool of water without massive splash effects leads. Which is followed by a short roller coaster on rails part you want, finally ending with a splashdown.

EDIT: corrected the google translation from mile per hour to kilometers per hour.... a big google translation fail!!

100 MPH? Yeesh. (FAKE)

 

It was big translation failure, but google did it wrong. It translated Km/H in Mph. So the right translation would be 62,1371192 mph or it should have said 100 kilometers per hour. Don`t know why google translator does this because miles are definitly not the same as kilometers. But i corrected it in my post.

And this is really possible, if you look at the Maurer and Söhne Skywheel which has a height of 50 meters and a highspeed about 105 km/h (source: http://www.maurer-rides.de/x-coaster/skyloop/xt_150/ ).

By the way this homepage is really very trustworthy and a good known and well researched coaster-site in germany.... so NO FAKE, but at the moment, STILL RUMORS!!!

 

EDIT: you both were faster

I'm so stoked for this project! hopefully it really is a water coaster on steroids! But I really hope it has more than one drop, you would kind of expect that for a 20 million euro price tag!

We still don't really know what Die-Vertical will be. I am confused, is this thing Vekoma/Mack/Intamin? I just want to find out what this will be. If I remember from Italian class I think "IL BRIVIDO SFRECCIA SULL'ACQUA" translates as:

 

The thrill of speed on the water.

 

I think this means it will be a coaster located on top of the water such as Krake at Heide Park (I am not saying it will be a dive machine).

Yeah, I also started thinking of a Mack water coaster.

I'm still hoping for the Intamin prototype, but it would seem smarter of them to just get the one that have proven to be working and successful already.

On the official Mirabilandia Facebook page there's a message saying that December 12th will be D-Day. From a comment it seems that they will reveal another detail about the new coaster. So keep your expectation low and this might end up being something good.

 

What we know so far:

- The official name will be Divertical.

- It will be manufactured by INTAMIN;

- It will be 55 meters tall (170feet) with a strange 45° drop.

- It will be located in a new area of the park wich is located between iSpeed and the dark ride Reset.

- It will cost approximately 20M€.

- The main element will be water but it won't get people wet.

- It will open during the season (I'm not expecting to see it open before the end of June).

- It will have a Pilgrim's Plunge style lift system but it will be a roller coaster.

 

If I wrote something wrong, please forgive me; I just wrote what I remember.

And we all know what that sounds like...

^It's not like it gets hot or anything at these parks.

 

Oh, and...

 

 

At this point, I'm convinced Mirabilandia doesn't even know what they purchased!

 

LOL!

 

I can imagine the tweet after this:

 

"Got WAY drunk with #sandorkernacs last night. Can't remember a thing! May or may not have bought a 20M€ coaster from him."
