I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of Moonsault Scramble. It was operating at Nagashima Spaland. It had 6.2 Positive Gs! Here is the link if you don't believe me! But please, does anyone have pics of this ride?
BTW, RCDB is wrong, Moonsault Scramble was built at Fujiku highlands (for proof, you can see fujiyama in some of those pics) not Nagashima, And it was removed 2 seasons ago to make room for Dodonpa, this year's new 107 mph TA2K. I think it's a shame they took it down as it was the first rollercoaster over 200' tall. It is 207' and opened in 1983. ------------- id rather be on a coaster.....
I've heard rumors that the general public over there didn't like the ride anywhere. The Japanese aren't as daring as we Americans are. Well, at least that's what Nagashima Spaland's General Manager Yoshiki Takei said in an article about Steel Dragon 2000 in the most recent edition of RollerCoaster! magazine. I should add that it's a very interesting article that exposes why the damn thing cost so much.
Kevin, it was called the Laser Loop. IT stood on the site that is now home to Phantom's Revenge. Check out kennywood.coasterbuzz.com and click on Gallery, then click historical, there are a couple of nice pics of it.
