Ferrari World Discussion Thread

Those pictures are great! I don't think this has wingrider trains, seems to be too long considering the drag with the wide trains...mght even be better in this instance honestly as this thing looks like it's going to haul absolute ass.

 

I know never to judge a ride before it's open, but the profiling and trackwork make this look like an I305/Skyrush baby. And if that's the case I think we may be looking at a new number one contender. And the airtime looks ridiculous.

^ No need for an apology, I'm just curious because I can't even imagine the forces through that loop on an Intamin winged train. The likelihood of me riding this is slim to none due to its location, I'm just a fanboy casually following the construction with mouth agape, hoping for more new Intamin hotness here in the states at some point in the future.

I don't know the reason the rumor of "regular trains" has appeared... actually if you look at the width of the track you can see that is clearly a wing rider. Moreover, the lift evacuation stairs are placed in both sides, something that is logic thinking in a wing rider distribution:

Intimidator (mega lite as well) have only one evacuation stairs in one of the sides, and the distance between the track and the handrail is much smaller...

 

 

Okay, there are some differences between this coaster and Skyrush... if you see the handrail the shape is different, but don't forget this is the "last model" of that kind of coaster and it has some improvements. Are you able to see the return of the cable lift going up the lift, instead of going through the ground like Skyrush?

According to @koppen he spoke with Intamin and they are the ones who told him they are using regular trains and not the wing-rider type. Unless Intamin is being playful, and even though the design suggest otherwise, we as of now should expect regular trains. Edited by tubs023
