Yes. The trains will differ from Euro-Mir in that they will free-spin and not have motorised spins at certain points of the ride
So on euromir it only spins at certain points?
Is that lame or isn't it
Either wat knotts seriously need a new coaster. They have 2 family coaster jaguar which is extremely painful and some other coaster which i can't remeber the name of it
Well actually it isn't lame, as if the cars free-span throuought the ride, you would get severe whiplash injuries as there are some very high G Forces at certain places. On Euro-Mir itself, you free spin through the lift-off section, then the cars lock (so you are forwards or backwards) and plummet down the drop before shooting up, the cars then spin 180 degrees, and then you do the rest of the course in the opposite direction to what you took the first drop with.
I assure you that if you rode the attraction you would agree that free-spinning on Euro-Mir would be disaster. Indeed last season one car on the train accidentally locked with passengers facing outwards from the track and they got neck injuries and had to be taken to hospital for checks. The ride also has numerous banked helixes taken at high speeds.
Most Maurer Sohne spinning coasters have a top speed of between 30 and 40mph, Euro-Mir does 50mph and has a G Force of 4. It is nowhere near the same as a standard free spinning rollercoaster.
The reason the new coaster at Knotts Berry Farm will be able to free spin is because it is only 2/3 the height of Euro-Mir and will have much lower speeds and G Forces which means passengers health will not be put at risk.
