Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Well, now I'm starting to change my view on that video. Looking back at my last post here would be more of what it would look like other than the invisible sonic boom this video made the coaster create. I should look at dubaidave's video and this video to compare.

After riding Kingda Ka in the front row again yesterday, it got me thinking about how comfortable this ride is going to be. I've never had a problem on TTD, but that extra ~10mph makes my ears pop every time and it's not an uncomfortable amount of wind per se, but I don't know that I'd want to be like that for too long. I just wonder how comfortable Formula Rossa is going to be, especially for those in the front. And if it's okay, I wonder how much farther we can push it before it isn't any more?

 

Regardless, I'm absolutely dying to ride this

Thats for sure sped up. The sound isn't in sync. You hear the wheels, clutch release and the Catch Car after the train is long gone...

 

** Of course the audio could be from that first clip distroying that theory.

 

Audio de-synchronization is not really an effect of speeding a video up. There could be a number of factors producing this effect.

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.

 

HOLY AIRTIME BATMAN!Seriously, backseat on that ride would be so awesome and quite likely very painful. My coaster count is very low(just over 50 credits, including coasters at the local fair) but Accelerator backseat had two of the most intense moments of ejector airtime I have ever experienced. Coming over the tophat in the back is insane, and just as your butt enters the seat again you are ripped out of it again during the descent from the top hat, riding at 100 mph would totally amplify that experience!

 

Now, in terms of this coaster I am loving what I am seeing, this ride looks to be insane, and I want to give a big congratulations for Intamin and Ferrari World for building a coaster with an actual layout and not just a top hat. I may never make my way out to Dubai, but if I ever do this ride will be a MAJOR priority.

 

The if I wasnt broke I would go on a tour of the world, riding the best it has to offer Ghost

^Yes, but keep in mind the larger rocket coasters cannot actually go much faster than their assigned speed. Top Thrill Dragster can only go around 5mph faster than it's launch, so around 127mph. It would cost an insane amount of energy added to the energy already needed just to get one of the strata-coasters faster than necessary. Xcelerator on the other hand was designed as a prototype, so it could have been experimental just to see what would have been necessary for the coaster to work properly or to see what the system is capable of.

guys come on, what is wrong with you.

We all get amped up about the coaster, we see footage of it, then we make judges from what we see. What one person says can effect what everyone else thinks about the ride. I'm now going to shut up about what I guess what the ride will be like until the ride actually opens and people bring back reviews of the ride, or until I have ridden it. Until then I'll go with one unofficial rule that I saw on another thread here:

No complaining about a ride until you have ridden it. Or at least until it is built.

About the speedup, like DubaiD. said: I`m sorry that i started the discussion.... i just mentioned the speed because i`m was so impressed, that i just want to underline that it looks nearly unreal, how fast this thing goes. Never wanted to start a discussion about this.

 

So to end rumors completly: I`m proffesional VisualFX-Artits and MovieCutter for commercials and movies in germany and i really can say, this is after i looked on it a second time nearly for sure 100% normal playback time: The audio is just asynchron because of a missing little piece in between the two shots from the launch (maybe they only had one camera and launched the train just two times). There is a part of the launch missing, that part which shows the middle of the launch section. I would do the same cut, if i just had shot the videofootage out of two positions, and in the editing i would delete the middle part were you can´t see the train to get a nicer result. And because of the second part is filmed from a wider distance , i don´t think they got a good spot for audio from there. So i would take the sound from the first perspective/camera and put it under the complete scene,too. I just would have cuttet the sound too, so that it fits perfectly to the shown material, and no one of you would ever have recognized it, but maybe they are semi-pros

 

So the only thing that wasn`t correct in that video, is short amount of time from the middle of the launch were the train speeds up, but the speed of playback looks correct, just add in your imagination half a second of launch time were the trains gets to the final speed,that you`ve seen in the video.

 

Hope my english is understandable.

Thought: Is it possible the audio is out of sync because they thought the sound was supposed to/would be better synced to the first hill? It may just be coincidence, but it seems that the moment the sound is the highest pitch/fastest is the same that the train crests the first hill. At any rate, all speculation.

 

I think it's pretty obvious, though, that this ride is going to be completely out of control. How long until the TPR Dubai trip?

There has to be anti-rollbacks...isn't the hill still nearly 200 feet tall? If something goes wrong at the beginning of the launch it could easily not clear the hill. I mean I'm not an engineer (yet) but I can't see how any launched coaster can NOT have some sort of system to prevent a roll back into another block.

 

Was just talking with a friend and he brought up the possibility that the trims act as anti-rollbacks. If the train doesn't clear the hill then the brakes will slow the train down on the way back as well as the way up. Pretty interesting idea. Go Intamin

The entire hill is trimmed from bottom to top; if it doesn't make it over the hill (no matter what speed), it will slowly coast back over the trims til it gets to the launch track, which is less than level, but not steep enough to make the train gain enough speed to be dangerous. There are brakes right at the staging area which I assume would stop it after it coasts all the way back to the station.

There are breaks right after the beginning of the launch. In the AME video, it shows them. It only needs that many because if the train doesn't travel all the way up the hill, the trims will slow it down long enough to be stopped by the short set of brakes .
