Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

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.

I highly doubt that.

 

While I'm with the camp that says it'll probably get faster, I don't think it's going to be enough to make a huge difference. That being said, I've generally kept my expectations low for pretty much every coaster recently. It ends up better for me that way.

I don't know guys, I want to be optimistic too but when I watch this video, I see something completely different than that testing video. I do hope it speeds up though, cause I think that layout has potential to be of the best steel coasters on the planet.

It was flying over the lift hill, but didn't seem to gain much momentum through the course. I will give it the benefit of the doubt that it will speed up as it runs more cycles, but it scares me that it is running like this so close to opening with a full or near full train. I had higher expectations for this after Skyrush, but I hope it doesn't turn out to be a butchered version of it.

You guys are kidding me right? I just watched the section me video for the first time and it hauls A$$ holy crap. This thing is a monster.

Dude... that train was crawling through almost every element. I expected the insane speed at the bottom of the first drop to carry throughout the majority of the ride, but holy crap, it barely even inched through the first element.

I just watched a few skyrush testing videos (some with empty trains and others with very low lift speed) and it did already seem pretty fast.

The layout on this one looks amazing and it is properly long but although I do think it will speed up I don't see it gaining that much speed to be OMFG insane like skyrush. I guess only time will tell, though, and we don't even have a pov.

I don't know the testing standards over there, but for Skyrush they had to put so many laps on it before they could let anyone ride it so if that is the case, those wheels probably have quite a few laps that we might be seeing closer to what the speed will normally be. It's hard to tell since there hasn't been many testing videos.

 

The way it hauls over the top of the lift is giving me flashbacks to Skyrush's opening season. Hopefully the lift isn't dialed back on this one later on. Other than that it seems to me that it would come in close second to Skyrush.

When the camera is that far away of course it looks slow. Same goes for an airplane in the sky.

Seeing as it has no launches, no elevation changes, and nobody's getting on mid-ride, it's physically impossible for it to gain momentum through the course. Physics, man.

 

 

It can gain momentum by going down. Momentum is based on mass and speed. What it cannot do is gain energy (only transfer potential energy into kinetic or vice versa, or into heat/friction).
