Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

from the video I guess it is going to get some kind of show - from the mention of it being theatrical?
other wise I would have just gone for "its a great solid ride/rollercoaster for all" or something

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

yeah I know all about the noise restrictions.
would it not be better to make a quieter coaster cart and leave it open?
 than just add loads of tunnels? and spoil the view?
I just wonder how much noise is reduced by the tunnels

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I know that they basically have no choice about the tunnels but I really don't like the idea of the track being enclosed, the whole point of wooden coasters is that they look visually impressive as well as fun and thrilling. Hopefully they dress the sound tunnels up a bit and not just have a big wo...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I guess I mean it interacts with the viewing window

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

  really impressed with the look of that drop down under the "wickerman" the twist and drop looks much better than I thought it would. surely it should get some air time if it goes through it quick enough? also the steel is used to cover a larger open span. a wooden beam couldn't take the ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I still think the tunnel from the top of the lift to the drop is going to kill what would be a great ride? looking wise and the view from the ride? does the coaster make that much noise going round the top of the first drop? surely the tunnel should be all the way up the lift hill? Why? Heading str...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

looks like some extra smaller metal parts have been added to the structure at the top?
I just can under stand why there is so many metal parts to the top of the structure. it seems really over engineered at the moment for what it is. must be more to come
