The inversion looks as if the ride had been "auto supported" in Nolimits. Besides that sidetrack, the adjustments look spectacular. I'm wondering if it'll be open by Memorial Day.

The track for Hades 360 was finished today. Assuming they have the trains already or will get them very soon they should hopefully be able to make the memorial day opening.

 

 

Unless it takes GG 5 years to perfect these trains too.

If the Timberliners don't get put in for the rides reopening, can PTC's handle inversions?

 

Nope. It's Timberliners or SBNO.

Not trying to be mean here - are you sure about that? Reason why?

 

As long as it's only positives throughout the inversion, it's no different than the trains moving through a continuously-banking curve.

I don't know the exact reason but in the interview posted a page back the park owner said that an inverting wooden coaster as an idea they've had since the mid 90s and even talked to CCI about but there were never wooden coaster trains capable of inverting until now.

^LOL! The thought of a standard PTC Train going through something like that is terrifying!

 

I'm sure the first Chinese knockoff wooden coaster with inversion will use PTC trains

That will also probably be the name.

^I like Gravity Group but why am I having such a hard time trusting Hades 360. That barrel roll just does not look right. Looks like to much hang time when your upside down.

Oh God... Have to hand it to them. The is the first coaster in years to give me an uneasy feeling when I think about riding it in August.

I think about how I can't find a coaster that scares me. This scares me, so I'm excited I mean, Son of Beast went upside down in a giant loop, much much higher... but the steel backbone and track ties on that looked a little more solid.

I'm in the fear category for this. I don't know if it's just because it's so different to anything we've seen, but that just looks... not right. I'm sure it'll ride awesomely though. I think it's because the RMC rolls were made with prefabricated track and this is traditional wooden track that just makes it so strange.
