Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^I would guess that it's due to the environment. The desert heat and sun takes it's toll on all colors, causing them to fade quickly. Particularly the color red fades quickly in the sun. Painting the rides all white prevents them from becoming eyesores in a short time.

 

Yes that's a perfectly valid reason... except for me the White is more of an eyesore and seams to look worse over a shorter period of time. It's not like a nice gleaming White it' seams off white already and withing a very short time it begins to look all dingy and I hate dingy Whites!!! makes my mind go into OCD nightmares running wild with Clorox and scrubbing sponges

It honestly isn't that hard to figure out in my opinion. Obviously vertical lift coasters are 90°. As such coasters are billed to have a vertical lift hill. This is not considered a vertical lift coaster, therefore it has the steepest lift hill (no vertical)

 

This is what I was thinking. Maybe they mean the steepest "traditional" style, non-vertical lift hill. (Obviously including cable lifts in this "traditional" category.)

But saying "this is the steepest lift that's not 90 degrees" is like saying "this is the world's fastest car that doesn't reach 200 mph" which, in my opinion, is fairly ridiculous.

But at least we all seem to agree the ride looks great, nonetheless. The layout looks very promising and with those trains it should be even better!

Does that look really slow to anybody else? Skyrush is way faster than that... I really hope it gets warmed up soon cause it's crawling over some of those airtime hills.

This. I know my hopes are high since I am expecting Skyrush 2.0 + inversions, but this did seem to be crawling.

It honestly looks like Skyrush with a better and longer layout, and that excites me, but after this video, I'm a little worried a set my expectations too high.

Guys, we have been through this literally with every coaster, right? First test runs are _always_ slower than the rides a few weeks after opening. Give it some time to warm up and break in. It could also be that the reviews from Skyrush made the designers lay back a little bit to make a coaster that's re-ridable and fun instead of an insane ejector machine that may bruise your thighs. The layout looks kick-ass though, I can't wait for a POV!

Keep in mind that Skyrush has walkway under it and this one is nearly impossible to get a close up off-ride video! And this is a wing coaster so high wind will influence the train a lot, and this ride just opened, and it's only 72 degrees over there. (While 72 is a dream temperature for the majority of us here this time of the year, it is quite low for Abu Dhabi. Flying Aces might be running on summer wheels with thicker polyurethane because Abu Dhabi is super hot and they probably don't have the need to purchase "winter wheels" that work on 30's and 40's.)

 

So many factors here that that I can think of can make the train (look) slow. I'm sure this would be an amazing ride.
