    Take the Layout of the Batman clones, for example. Halfway through, there is a slow section high up, before diving back down again. I think a lot of enthusiasts sit and home and watch videos, and we forget how much fun a simple turn can be! I think a great example of this is pre-lifts...

    You're missing my point. The seats on Baco are so much further away from the track, that even if they were both designed to have the same forces, and enter the element at the same speed; Baco's would be far more drawn out.

    I haven't ridden either, but the roll rate is definitely slower, than per say: Helix's. https://rcdb.com/11048.htm#p=62929 I'm not saying this ride will be as intense as I305, I'm just saying that the trains are larger, higher up off of the track, and therefore the geometry of the shaping is...

    We also have to remember that the heartline of the ride is of greater value. This means that the seats are higher up above the track than with previous models. They're also further apart. This means that the relative roll degree/second change can't be as fast on previous models such as I305 and...

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Bombay Express | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    I can't quite remember. I'd say it was a tad more, but just overall better. I'd say slightly better than Batman at the same park. The main difference was the story/preshows were far superior. There was the same amount of rooms, but you were forced to take them on busy days. There was a part...

    The heartline value of the trains is greater, than say, Maverick or I305. Also, the seats are further apart. Therefore, they can't execute rolls as fast as earlier models. This disadvantage comes at increased rider comfort and sense of freedom. This means that, if they were to re-design I305...

    That's tough to say, because it takes a few years for a lot of these rides to be in the pipeline.

    Maybe they aren't as worried about capacity here.

    Apocalypse was a lot better when it was Terminator, the pre shows were pretty cool. I miss being able to "take the tunnel!"

    SFDK | Sidewinder Safari | Zamperla Wild Mouse | 2021

    I think this is great! They used to have a Tony Hawk Gerstlauer spinner that was pretty good! They removed and re-used a lot of the que and station area for Superman. Thre is a height limit of 150 feet, but it depends on where you go! Closer to the lake it's even less, I think 80 feet is the...

    Look, I don't know how this works. I'm a musician. But, I do know, most people of various body types will experience ejector on an ejector hill and so on. If his equipment had said 4.5, I would be likely to believe the rest. But 0.65 is big difference. Yes, the speed changed ride by ride...

    So are you saying Shambhala only pulls around 3.15 G's then? Because stats say 3.8 https://rcdb.com/10239.htm I feel like you're pulling at straws here. We all know Intamin like to get up to 5 G vertical force. Are you going to tell me that every time they mention a G force stat they are...

    It's around -0.8 at his graph. That's not ejector, ok? Have you ever been on a kiddie slope at 10 degrees and you're experiencing something around 0.9 g? It feels different than moving along a flat surface at the same speed, doesn't it? Same with -0.8 g and -1.0 g. I'm guessing he's in...

    We're discussing the final airtime hill, not the jump into brake. His graph says the maximum vertical G force is around 4.15, when the official stats say 4.8! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperion_(roller_coaster) https://rcdb.com/14462.htm I'm well aware of this Uh, yeah, the ones that...

    Look, I'm sorry, but I really have a hard time believing that. Only the first hill on Hyperion reaches blow -1.0 G? I'd really like these "professionals" to stop measuring their ideas on false equipment. If Intamin says that the final airtime hill on Hyperion is ejector, you can bet your @22...
