Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Three major inversions are missing... 1) Dive Loop (following the first Inverting Drop) 2) Dive Loop (following the first Dive Loop) 3) Corkscrew/Inline (following the Cobra Roll) The dive loops are definitely in the final ride as they are on the plans and the AR image. The inversion after the cobr...

Re: X Sector Refurbishment

The enterprise model is a discontinued one, so it's "replacement" has to be the fly away model, in which case expect it to feature the new gondola and restraint system design. http://www.hussrides.com/typo3temp/pics/b4ad02fa6d.jpg sooooo it would be like this? http://porsmond.bravepages.c...
