Ah ok a baby Karnan then! On a separate note why don't most Gerst's have non or very little footers instead just concreting straight into the ground?Well considering we know Junker's top hat is 131.3ft tall, this coaster is clearly just slightly taller than that. So about 140ft.
Nothing to do with Gerstlauer, solely the park's choice. Gerstlauer then designed the coaster with this in mind.I really wish Gerstlauer would make some longer trains. With the little 8 seaters it's impossible to the get the tug of back row airtime coming off of hills.
Yeah technically the launch system can launch to 180kmh at up to 10gSome of the Gerstlauers with vertical lift hills do have 4 rows/16 riders per train, but I think this is the most they can do with a vertical lift hill. Some of the launched Infinity Coasters, like Gold Rush at Slagharen, do have 5 rows/20 riders, and according to Gerstlauer’s website, the limit is 8 rows/32 riders: https://www.gerstlauer-rides.de/products/roller-coasters/infinity-coaster/
Interestingly, they also say about some things that aren’t currently in use on any Infinity Coaster as far as I’m aware, such as the ability to “accelerate easily up to velocities of 130km/h or more” and “an automatic closing of the lap bars to save time during the process of dispatch”.
Absolutely never. You won't see a coaster pulling more than 3-4 G except for extremely short durations, where it might spike up to 6 or so. 10 is completely out of the question. It might be done for some sort of industrial application, but never on a coaster.Wow, that’s high! I wonder whether Gerstlauer will ever get a request for this sort of acceleration?
How high is Dodonpa’s acceleration? That must be pretty high!Absolutely never. You won't see a coaster pulling more than 3-4 G except for extremely short durations, where it might spike up to 6 or so. 10 is completely out of the question. It might be done for some sort of industrial application, but never on a coaster.
