Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Personally, I'm more excited for the day the U.S gets a megalite, but that'y just me

This. When I win the megamillions this is the first thing I'm buying. Then some land to plop it down on. We'll have an east coast bash when its up and running.

Any new progress on the rise?
I was out there today and the lift hill and first drop is about two thirds complete. I made the mistake again of not getting pictures after my wife told me a 2nd time...I was at Cedar Point July 18 and saw the first trucks arrive with track and supports. I just assumed other people would have seen it so I didn't get any pictures. If I return to Ikea this weekend I will get some pictures and post them...My bad...

I may have missed this, but is the height of that loop released? Will it be the tallest, or will that Mack in China still hold the record?

 

 

Here is the official press release:

 

... and the world’s tallest loop of 52m (170ft)...

 

 

That makes a tie with GateKeeper, interesting. Any word on the height of the loop for Flash at Lewa Adventure?

49 m / 161 ft = Full Throttle (Premier)

50 m / 164 ft = Lewa (Mack)

52 m / 171 ft = Ferrari World (Intamin)

56 m / 184 ft = Wanda Hefei (Intamin)

I definitely find the top connectors to be weirdly angled. So, is this going to be a loop with a funky banking (Tennesse Tornado), or are we going to have a non-inverted loop?

 

Hmm... looks it could be non-inverted.

 

Here's a quick Photoshop with the top of Rip Ride Rockit's loop:

Looks like both sides of the lift have stairs, like Skyrush, which would point to the winged trains.

 

I wonder if they are gonna need another support between the two for the lift now. The supports look very thin compared to I305 and Skyrush, and the lift is only triangular compared to what Skyrush and I305 have.

Everyone's focused on how enormous that loop is, and I'm just sitting here staring and thinking about how incredible that drop is going to be. The shaping looks insane so far, and if the crest is tight, it's going to be one heck of a drop.

 

Also someone mentioned that there are catwalks on both sides of the lift, which I noticed as well. Perhaps the Winged trains be used on this coaster. If they are then this could very well be Skyrush 2.0 with an added loop!
