I'm surprised there hasn't been a topic for this one!

Lewa Happy World are well on their way to constructing a new coaster by the name of 'Lightning'. This ride is being constructed by MACK rides and is Mack Rides first coaster to go over 200ft (just).

The ride will reach a top height of 200.2ft and will drop its riders 190.3ft, reaching a top speed of approximately 71MPH! This will then be followed by a loop, but not just any loop, a 164ft (approximately) vertical loop meaning the tallest on any roller coaster! (Bad luck Full Throttle). This will also invert over the lift hill in a similar fashion to Bush Gardens Tampa's Kumba. The ride then enters various air time moments, and into a turn around point, after here we have a zero G roll. You then enter into another air time moment, finaly with a turning section the ride hits the brake run.

Below is the layout for you to look at yourself -

As you can we its a rather large project for MACK, one which I am happy to see them be doing as this means they are expanding. Below are some construction pictures -

And finally the ginormous loop!

So what do you think of this huge project by MACK? Does it look good? Do you want one outside of China? Discuss!

It will be interesting to see what this ride is like when it is built. If it is anything like other Mack rides it should be smooth and have plenty of air time. It is an interesting market for Mack to be entering, I guess we'll have to wait for some european installations before really been able to see whether they can rival B&M. That loop looks mighty impressive though - ridicously tall! :D
