Mirabilandia Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

There's a press release (in Italian) posted here:

http://www.ravennatoday.it/cronaca/mirabilandia-divertical-2012-water-coaster.html

 

Here is a VERY ROUGH Google Translation:

Wonderland completes his three aces in the thrill of the 2012 season, which opens Friday, April 6, with DIVERTICAL. After Katun and iSpeed, the park is preparing to host the highest water coaster in the world, 55 meters in height and a top speed of less than 106 km per hour through a path full of curves that ends with a dizzying plunge. And a faithful theming tied to the world of Off Shore, which will give the unique excitement of Formula One to drive the sea.

 

DIVERTICAL will be the highest water coaster in the world, along with Katun and iSpeed ​​will form a trio of absolute standards of European and world entertainment. Pending the official opening is on its game site web 2.0 communication campaign, which will reveal gradually after hint hint, the surprising features of the big news that the park will open in 2012. The information, eagerly awaited by the people of the web, will be disclosed in a series of events titled "D-DAY": true happenings in Wonderland which will unveil its web channels on the incredible features of an attraction that will change substantially the character of the Park.

 

"It 'still too early to reveal all the secrets of DIVERTICAL - says Richard Head, CEO of Wonderland - but confirm that what the water will be opening in 2012 the world's tallest coaster, absolutely unique, and that will change the very concept of water coaster. Intamin and Wonderland (the world's leading manufacturers of roller coaster) believe a lot in this new type of coaster, which will ensure the right mix of fun and adrenaline, thus satisfying both families and thrill-seekers the most demanding. A winning formula in Wonderland style. "

 

Wonderland, here's the new 2012: 'the water coaster' world's tallest

„"With the opening of DIVERTICAL - explains Pietro Lanciotti, commercial director of Wonderland - continue on a path of excellence, ie inaugurate unique attractions, with at least one international record and are able to give emotions never felt before. With Katun we made the largest inverted roller coaster in Europe, with reset we have changed forever the history of interactive attractions, while thanks to Max Adventures Thai Master was introduced in Italy the concept of dueling coaster. Not to mention iSpeed, a jewel of technology that the world envies. Now, with Divertical, we want to continue this tradition. "

 

And on the web are going crazy discussions, analysis, hypothesis and conjecture. Thousands of pages dedicated to Divertical in blogs and forums, hundreds of Facebook posts, waiting for a new piece of evidence that confirms or denies the rumors. “

I think you just need to trust intamin with it. They know what they're doing and wouldn't do something if they hadn't made sure it would work (at least some of the time in a few of their coasters cases...) and it would be safe. I do agree about the colors though...

How exactly will this be a roller coaster? There is no room for upstop wheels to keep the train from flying off (as seen in several close ups of the drop). I'm right with you australianalex. Also, am I the only one who thinks this ride is an eye sore?
The center bar on the track will serve as an upstop.

People seem to be afraid of color. I think the colors are beautiful.

Wha...?

I believe he means that a lot of USA members are think that a coaster needs a bright track color, and a grey/black/tan support scheme. This obviously breaks that trend and a lot of members haven't come to grips with that yet.

I still have extremely low expectations from this ride, but I guess thats a good thing as Ill be blown away if Im proved wrong

Yes, I too have very low expectations for a 180 foot tall Intamin Water coaster Prototype that hasn't yet been more than 20% constructed with no evidence as to what the rest of the layout will be.

 

 

My expectations aren't up in Cloud9 or Fanboy Paradise, but this is Intamin we're talking about. When was the last time one of their major coasters didn't deliver?

The park said there was gonna be a coaster section, right?

 

So what if the coaster section has a layout like that with a lift hill instead of a launch? The park's been pretty secretive with the layout so who knows for sure how well the coaster is gonna turn out? In the end, this is still Intamin we're talking about and they're known for building sick coasters.

We all have opinions, and I could be proven wrong, but at the moment it doesnt look promising. I'd be more re-assured if it featured the usual intamin box track, that would make me think of it as a hyper-water coaster. Also, do we know how steep the drop is? Is it the drop in the pic of the lift, because if its the drop it doesnt look very steep.

The drop doesn't need to be steep to be fun.

 

It's kinda understandable to generate opinions of a ride when the park releases info, but in this case, we know almost nothing about the ride other than the final drop. IMO it's kinda hard to generate an opinion based on a ride we know nothing about.

The lift will be the same system used on Pilgrims' Plunge at Holiday World.

 

The question about the coaster section can be answered with this photo. Hard to see, but there is definitely an uphill section judging by supports.

I'm starting to like this colors, it seems these colors just grow on you. Though, I never would expect a blue tracked ride with orange supports would look so good.

 

Stunt Fall has very similar colors and that looks really good.

I wonder if there's a technical reason for why these rides don't have drops past 45* - similar to how the 4D coasters' drops aren't completely vertical because the trains need to be in complete contact with the second set of rails so that they flip at the bottom? Maybe it has to do with the middle rail being an upstop system, if that's true.

 

This looks really cool from the inside of the park, so I'm excited to see what it looks like when it's all finished and themed!
