Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

If you pause the video at 0:30, you can see the launch car. Is it me or 1. Is there no magnetic Brakes on the sides (all accelerator coasters have them) and 2. I'm not sure if this is always there but there are magnets under the launch car. Is this always like this?

 

Edit: I just saw the first video and now realize that there are only a few magnetic brakes at the end, and that it is a cable launch.

^ Exactly. What is going on right now with this ride is exactly what *should* have happened at Kings Dominion with i305 two weeks prior to media day, but the reality there was that they only had 48 hours before media day for tweaking and testing. At least they have about 2 weeks at Ferrari World.

Now, don't get me wrong here, I think this will be an amazing ride, but... While the videos of the launch are incredibly impressive, I wouldn't expect that they'll necessarily launch it that hard with GP riders aboard. Don't forget the video of Xcelerator launching at 100 mph. Just because it can launch that hard, doesn't mean it will.

 

Case in point:

i don`t know if this has been posted before, but i haven`t seen it here....

 

so here is a video on facebook in highquality from the launch:

if this video isn`t faster then this will be insane

 

Don't mean to be a party pooper... but does anyone else think that video has been sped up a bit? Filming the launch from that distance, it just wouldn't appear that fast. For example, this is a video of a TGV train traveling at about the same speed (somewhere around 260km/ph), filmed at closer range so it should appear much faster than Formula Rossa.

 

 

But I don't think it does. Hmmm...

I absolutely agree with you, there is no doubt that was sped up. In fact after it crests the hill it seems to dramatically slow down. If it were going that fast, it would be pulling at least 2 negative g's at the crest of the hill.

"No doubt", huh? You are soooooo sure? Would you bet your left testicle on it?

Yeah, trims tend to slow trains down...I think that's what they were made to do.

 

I think it's pretty interesting how they didn't line the launch track with brakes. Either way, it launches directly into brakes, so no matter what, it will still just barely coast back to the starting point. I really like that idea; quite a money saver.

Wow! I think about how Kingda Ka sounds and looks when it launches, and then I watch this. And then I wet myself thinking about how amazing that launch will be.

 

And to whoever thinks this looks sped up, it's NOT! Kingda Ka looks like it's going pretty darn fast when it begins its crest. If it had a short little hill instead of a 456ft tower, it'd probably look that fast (and look like it generates that much airtime! )

I'm sorry, but...the resemblance between this post and my member title is uncanny.

20mph faster than

would look that fast to me, especially if the camera is on a tripod and not shaking.

Yes. It is sped up... Ferrari World even paid those guys in the second half of the video to walk in slow motion to make it look real.
