    Still think this concept looks fun - a family suspended coaster in the boosterboke position! great for a 'flying broomstick' theme - but you have to wonder how comfortable it would be! Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 19.00.56.jpg

    Also - this 'reclining' coaster concept by disney! I can't see what it would be good for - apart from a space-mountain type ride where your looking up at effects/screens be8cf19fe3d7b9d391b6c0a4325b3d57.jpg

    Please, buckle your restraints as we are hitting an ejector moment. Please put away all electronics and the tray table. Thank you.

    The two halves of the zero g roll looks like the only thing that would be even close to the current controlled 4D's. The drop looks too small to be nearly as thrilling as those either.

    Remember the Giovanola Tilt and Twist coaster @roomraider mentioned earlier in this thread? Promotional footage from the defunct Swiss manufacturer has surfaced, including some tests of a scaled-down Tilt coaster model!



    Apparently the uploader works for the Monthey town council - the city where Giovanola was based during the whole of its 116-year existence :eek:

    I love how complicated the tilt is; so many moving parts, and tight tolerances that it would probably be a nightmare to keep running!

    Also worth noting it would have had a beyond vertical drop, something basically unheard of in 1999/2000, and wouldn't become a thing in real life until years after.

    It didn't take me until it was dropped to realise it was a scale model, honest!

    For a split second I thought that was a full scale prototype and my brain exploded

    Haha yeah, I got so confused when the train dropped. For a second I thought the video all of a sudden sped up!

    Great find @Coaster Hipster, that was fun to watch. That tilt mechanism is absurd. Imagine tilting downward and there's no track to be seen in front of you when vertical, that'd be such a tease.
