Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just got inspired to do a speculative "artist's impression" type sketch of what I think this coaster may or may not be like. Bear in mind it is just something I knocked together for fun and is entirely just for artistic purposes so isn't even necessarily accurate to the layout we already ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Is the whole coaster structure in place bar the track work? Or is there still a some more support structure to be added?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

But could someone tell me who Eliot Crawford is, or is he another Miles Cedar... I just searched him up. He's a UK YouTuber with slightly under 500,000 subscribers. He's done some UK theme park vlogs before. He is also good friends with YouTuber, Joe Weller, who has nearly 4.5 million subscribers, ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Also this image popped up in a discord server showing the turn around half way through the course... https://s2.postimg.org/5ycq43zu1/IMG_3378.jpg I'm sure you have noted the complete lack of banking on the turn which would suggest a low speed at this point, hopefully this is for a reason or anothe...

Personally, the steel beams don't bother me that much, I'd be more bothered if the majority of the structure was steel rather than wood - such as on Invadr (which looks very ugly).

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

^Gerstlauer possibly could do the lift system, but after the smiler incident, I don't know how likely that would be. Vekoma also make silent lift systems, with a magnetic fin located next to rack and dog system, keeping the dog away from the rack unless the train starts to roll backwards. This techn...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

^I completely agree with you. I think people are misunderstand the silent magnetic lift hill proposal. I believe it will be like the smiler, in that it is chain driven but will have silent, magnetic anti-rollbacks.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It doesn't look to have a very big first drop, similar to Nemesis. Will the drop be a curved drop, similar to Mystic Timbers, or a flat turn followed by a straight down drop? ;)
