That's so cool! Considering they don't have a drop tower anymore, I guess why not have two things in one?
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. Best: Katun & iSpeed - Mirabilandia, Formula Rossa - Ferrari World, Oblivion - The Black Hole - Gardaland, Stealth - Thorpe Park
smartestcoasterkidever! wrote:Gotcha. About how far does the train drop down the lift? The original speed, 6.8 mph seems really slow and doesn't seem like it's actually falling far. I can run 6.8 mph if I really try! Lol. 24.6 mph is obviously faster but still seems like a pretty small drop. Regardless, it's still my most anticipated coaster I'm riding later this year. It's a pretty "unknown" coaster here in the states, as most European rides are, but even my "coaster friendly" friends had no idea about it.
I believe the unit conversions may be slightly wrong. 5 m/s is 11 mph. So the ride's speed is increasing from 11 mph to 24.6 mph.
That's crazy that there's a drop on the lift hill. Gotta get that here in the states!
You are indeed correct. I must have accidentally calculated mph first and put it into place for kmh and calculated the wrong mph from the wrong kmh. Edited my numbers accordingly.
It really looks much better then before. Would love to ride it again soon in it's complete form.

Wow that's an amazing news! I LOVED LOVED and LOVED KARNAN.. It's by far my favorite roller coaster.. even if there are better layouts out there, it's the most unique ride I have ever been on, it's such an experience, not just a coaster. Can't wait to go back there this season and ride again this monster with the updated free-fall speed
