^Or maybe it won't have any restraints?
I'd guess "bar that folds in from the side", but that would make it really awkward to dismount on that side, so... not sure.
I wonder when RMC is going to come in Asia. Big market obviously. China's woodies are perhaps a little too recent to get Iron Horse treatment, but what about Japan and its rattly old Intamin? I know some of their parks are on their way down in terms of attendance, hope springs eternal nonetheless...
The Zhejiang six flags park had a Goliath clone in its concept art.
You mean sort of like what are on Maurer X-car coasters?
Yeah, pretty much. I knew I had it from somewhere, just didn't remember exactly which ride type.
Kinda like Gravity Group's Timberliner restraints.

Or even the S&S Screamin' Swings.
POV of the prototype Raptor coaster:-
That looks smooth. Like, I can feel through my phone how smooth it is.
Marvelous, just marvelous.
^That's a handheld POV, somebody's actually riding that prototype!
Look at the shadow on the ground as it goes down the drop, you can clearly see some knob-jockey sticking his hands in the air.
My question is, how does one get that job??
Prototype roller coaster tester? You don't see that advertised on Monster.com do you?
So what gives?
Looking at the title of the video, it would suggest that he's from a local news agency. Presumably doing some story on local manufacturer innovation, or something of that nature.
The local news here seems to have that sort of on after the 'proper' news every night.
EDIT: Although I do agree, I wouldn't mind a go.
But is it a cred?
The full news story has been posted, with plenty of interesting tidbits: http://www.kxly.com/features/made-i...rthwest-rocky-mountain-construction/586841280
Seven current projects, with one in Japan
New train design due out next year for US models.
World records to be broken next year.
Off-ride raptor footage, showing the train more in action.
Is the Japan one not Arashi?
And the records are obviously going to be broken on RMC Mean Streak.
Such an exclusive cred.
Indeed a very exclusive +1 to have! Although it may not even count since not listed on CoasterCount...
Think the SFoG / Cyclone news is out...
Link to story (not really any details yet) : http://www.fox5atlanta.com/good-day/268356671-story
There's a rumour White Cyclone at Nagashima Spa Land could get the RMC treatment
I don't know how I'd feel about that. On the one hand, it has the potential to be a great coaster but is castrated by its laughable roughness. It'd be really exciting to see what RMC can do with it.
On the other hand, RMC aren't known for the graceful look of their layouts. Cyclone looks absolutely gorgeous - all those mass of supports in white - I'd hate to see it ruined.
