We have track!
And RCS is on site as well. Shouldn't be long before vertical construction now!

I've always found it peculiar how the vast majority of American projects will use a tracked telescoping boom crane whereas the vast majority of European projects utilize a tower crane, like so. I'm sure there are tons of reasons behind this - size of the ride, cost, crane availability...still so odd to see though.


Intamin Vice-President Sascha Czibulka and Ride Designer Camiel Bilsen spoke with me at the recent IAAPA European Attractions Show, in Amsterdam. I spoke to Sascha and Camiel about Taiga at Linnanmäki as well as launch coasters in general and how the technology of those has evolved over time.

Please do a little more thinking before making a post. In several threads now you've made single-word Caps Lock-spamming posts like this that add nothing to the thread. It's nice to see reactions to news from fellow CF-ers, but not when they repeatedly resemble the screams of a cartoon character whose foot has been run over by a semi truck.

Sorry. It's my catchphrase for when I see track pieces for a coaster under construction.
If you want to include that in your posts, then put it in your signature, the one place where it doesn't really matter (to some extent) what you have there.

But how do i do signatures?
To do a signature, click on the icon in the top right of the page that has an outline of a person with your username next to it. One of the options that should come up when you click this is Signature; just click on that and write whatever you want!

Hope this helps!
