A Rollercoaster Concept You Dream Of

Thursday, January 3, 2008 3:37 PM
Different types of roller coaster are coming out every year, but what are ones that you hope will be created.

I would like to see a B&M Stand-Up Inverted. Just with the B&M Flyers have the trains not fold up. I think this would be sick.

Also I'm still waiting to see if they find a way to make the flyer do a real loop and not like the Vekomas were your on your back doing loop but in flying mode.

Stand-up inverted? Flyer with outside loop? Do you know anything about g-forces? lol

Whats that wisdom twister ride that you control the spinnage? Id love to see some suspended wild mouse with hairpin turns and slight drops with cars with them four seat spinny cars.

Just use Volare rolling stock. Nobody would know the difference. ;)

I really don't, but if you can tell me why it won't happen then I will get a better understanding. I don't know what would the difference be if like a stand-up had an inverted track. The position of the body would still be the same, just the track is over the head.

I think he was referring to your idea of taking the outside of a loop in the flying position. All the forces would throw you against the harnesses. Painful.

how about a corkscrew?

I think a launched wooden coaster would be pretty cool. Maybe use LIMs or something along those lines although I know you probally couldn't get it to go to fast. Another cool thing would be a 90 degree drop on a wooden coaster.

Probably more plausible. Still, inversions require quite a bit of force to negotiate.

Anyway, to answer your original question before Mr. P.A. jumped in ;) ..... I always thought it would be fun to ride in one of those pneumatic tube thingies from the bank or Costco or the Jetsons.

Does anybody know about borg? Borg is a flying coaster with 2 corkscrews. http://cache.rcdb.com/pictures/picmax/p8922.jpg

Though you are atop the track when you go through the inversions, you are still going through corkscrews. *** Edited 1/3/2008 10:29:18 PM UTC by Coasterkid200***

^S&S made a prototype called Sonic Boom that reminded me a lot of one of those pneumatic tubes.

He is talking about having the train on the outside of the corkscrew not on the inside. *** Edited 1/3/2008 10:30:34 PM UTC by a_hoffman50***

^ That's one ride that would definitely suck! :)

I've wondered about an inverted terrain coaster-- I mean zipping through a ravine with cliffs on either side of the train, or heading down a hill toward water with your tootsies dangling. Like BBW, except you're suspended instead of the cars.

In my more outlandish dreams, I envision the Flying Turns as a luge ride-- single rider, lying on your back-- even up the lift hills. Or else you ride with one of those aluminum saucers they had when I was a kid.

^^FWIW, Sonic Boom rocked my socks...getting to hit the "dispatch button" was a little intimidating from way up there, LOL.

Doesn't Tatsu have an outside corkscrew? *** Edited 1/3/2008 11:14:51 PM UTC by ApolloAndy***

Sounds like Nemesis.

Tatsu corkscrew is more like a flatspin, I'm talking about corkscrews like interlocking corkscrews B&M does

Mmmph, talk about your capacity issues! Then there's the whole insurance thing for when some idiot puts his feet down and stops mid-trough that gets wasted by the 250 pound guy coming down behind him! ;) I see your point though, it would be fun! I'm still amazed that those old funhouses had the wheels that spun real fast and flung bodies outward. I remember seeing the one at Geauga Lake when I was little, my parents wouldn't let me ride. :)

For me what's old is new. I'm finally going to get to ride a Flying Turns.

I like the idea of a toilet bowl type drop on a coaster. For example, once you get to the top you sort of go around and around in a increasingly tight circle until you finally plummet straight down. However, unlike the boring dive coasters this ride would have a complete circuit ride with a nice size course to go through.
I don't what type of supports would be needed but I am sure they could do it.

The B&M flyers have riders in a seated position. Before moving into the flying position, the trains feel essentially the same as those found on an inverted coaster. Of course, the whole concept of stand up coasters is rather pointless anyway.

When this coaster opens it will have a half outside loop. I assume this is possible since the short trains will make it easier to keep the forces under control.

While not exactly a mouse, there is a suspended spinning coaster in Germany.

One of the cooler recurring coaster dreams I have features a hand-powered single car much like the handcars at Idlewild and Waldameer. It rides on a rickety double rail track that is very reminiscent of the Blue Flash back yard coaster in Indiana. In fact, it's at about the same scale. You have to help the ride along by pedaling to get over the hills and clear the inversions.

A variation I've had a few times is a suspended single car, where you have to hold onto the bars of the car above your head much like monkey bars at the playground. Sometimes you have to pull your legs up to clear various support elements. That one's kind of scary.
