Other than irritating the living hell out of you, I have no idea--and I've ridden the damn thing. :lol:


I totally agree with Chuck.


I always imagined it was supposed to tip outwards on the tighter turns (like the wooden wild mouse in rct haha), but it sounds like it's completely pointless now. Bummer, was always curious, now, disappointed lol.

^So with you it has evoked the emotion of disappointment. You didn't even need to ride it to feel that way.

GREATEST RIDE EVER! ;)

The point of e-motion coaster is that instead of a rigid chassis, the vehicle allows the car to tilt and rock back and forth. On paper it sounds intriguing that the car can tilt outwards in tight turns, but in practice it results as a painful ride because you cannot disable the rocking feature and thus every banked turn becomes a headbanger not to mention the final brakes... I guess it's no wonder Tulireki is still the only one of its kind. And I would recommend anyone who's considering of buying an e-motion coaster that they test try it first. But with all my opinions, the GP love Tulireki and it's as popular as Salama (Söhne spinner). :|

It's still interesting to think that Tulireki and Helix are both from Mack.

Yep.

That circus dark ride was one of the weirdest things ever.
