Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

The "vertical turntable" sounds like the rotating tower coaster off RCT3, which, i believe was a real concept brought from the IAAPA Ass for the turntable system which sound like a more accurate description from the patent, could this be possibly used as a similar switch track mechanism t...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

Haha, yeye i see what your getting at Although few installations, haven't been super high such as maverick, Fahrenheit, Kanonen, speed monster, furious baco, Kirnu?

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

Im also leaning towards vekoma in all honesty, there not my favourite manufacturer (b&m) Dont understand whats wrong with intamin? tbh its a bit narrow minded to think that if it intamin they would make it a launch Intamin are capable of alot more Vekoma family ride for me, 1.2metres Kinda like...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

^ Defiantly but, im not to sure, but from a business sence, wouldn't it make more sence to install something in 2010 and then something in 2011?

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

^ i agree completely
Rita getting wing riders might be a little optimistic but i think new trains are a possibility to fit a theme, also could explain intamins involvement
Haha wing riders with logs in the centre haha ?

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

^ haha well yes obviously, but its debatable which manufacturer can offer the better experience, i know i can tell the difference between a ride on Kumali and a ride on Nemesis :wink: and if you looked at the top ten coasters [url=http://www.ushsho.com/steelrollercoasterpollresults2007.html" target...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6
