Has there been a dive machine with 6 across seating yet? I don't know of one :P


Yes, Krake's trains have 3 rows of 6 seats.

What type of dive machine is a 6 seat across called. Apparently they are cheaper because they can go on a normal sized track.
However I really like the look of it :)

So I found out it called a D6 dive coaster. This type can fit on normal B&M track meaning the price is significantly lower than a normal dive coaster :)

Ooh torn between watching this construction and not, now that Gardaland is on my list of parks to visit. I believe I enjoyed Helix much more because I didn't know every twist and turn of the track beforehand!

A teaser site has been released, which displays a video which seems to show that the ride will have somewhat of an original theme despite having similar marketing to Oblivion.

This video seems to tease a Sci-Fi theme. The ride seems to show a similar concept to Oblivion (Being expelled from earth during your exploration of a crater in the ground) however I am glad the roller coaster has some independence when it comes to its backstory.

You say 'independence' but then it does follow the cliché of 'something discovered during construction'.
