what do you think AIR would have. probably the usual, a 115 foot lift hill, 100 foot drop, some inversions, whoop dee do. it'll just be really smooth and nice like all b&m's. ----------------- PLEASE CHANGE YOUR SIGNATURE...

Actually, AIR is gonna have corkscrews(2) that you travel on the outside of the track. A feature Vekoma said was impossible. It pulls some sweet g's. Also, half of the lift is in a tunnel, it has many turns that flip you from top to bottom, and a double loading station. Which I don't see how it improves loading times. Some could explain this to me if they want to. ----------------- Georgia Cyclone-The Most A Coaster Can BEEEEEEEE.
Yes Vekoma can't even figure out how to make a corkscrew on a flyer, but b&m can!!!!! shows how b&m always wins! Vekoma needs more trash!!!!!!!!!!! ----------------- I Will Destroy Vekoma For All Of Their Evil Hypercloning!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nick] Webmaster]- www.amusementmania.com -

What do you mean by on the outside of the track? Don't you already do that. I probably sound like a dumb***. ----------------- Check Out The NEW "Meet The Staff" Page At http://geocities.com/totallysfmm/
onekong, if you really belive Vekoma is trash, makes trash, and eats trash, good, keep it to yourself. We don't care. It's the simple concept of "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it!" Again, if you really belive Vekoma sucks, makes trash, licks trash, and does whatever to trash, do us all a favor, and NEVER get in line for a Vekoma coaster again! It will make it shorter for the rest of us, which would like to get on them faster.
Outside the track is like on a inverted corkscrew, the train rides on the outside of the element, where on a conventional sitdown it would ride on the inside.
----------------- Hey, SFGAm management, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?
AMEN TRI-BIGGAR! Onekong just bashed a coaster company that has given us great rides, and coasters! If you truly love coasters you can't ever bash it! Constructive critisem is great but you should never not like a coaster no matter what!
Yeah I though Alton Towers couldn't build above the trees!!??
------------- SFMM line cutters are the braviest in the world.
AIR doesn't have Launched lift hill it is a normal chain lift, the only reason people are saying this is because there are fences around the lift hill (AIR Model) like Oblivions, so they think it is to watch people get launched. I think a Flying is a show it self, watching the people go up the lift face-down.
I have almost been tempted to feed the troll that has become onekong over the last couple days. I have figured if you're feeding it poison maybe its alright (i.e. making him go over the line that will get his account deleted). It seems he is determined to make noise about the destruction of Vekoma on just about every thread on the boards. He obviously isn't really a coaster enthusiast, just a coaster cynic. He doesn't value diversity, or the idea of economy rides. Remember, those economy rides push the envelope for the top makers to produce something that much better to warrant their higher cost. And besides remember that diversity is the spice of life, and one man's trash (as you refer to Vekoma) is another man's treasure. Your opinion is known, you don't need to keep repeating yourself, that is unless you have problems remembering what you said, don't know what you are talking about, lack the intelligence to say something more astute, or just generally lack intelligence. Not saying you do, just remember that your behavior may suggest such things.
You can't deny the strength that Vekoma Int. brings to the Coaster world. Even though they have mass-cloned rides, they are like nothing else out there. And even this new innovation of the Flying coaster has evolutionized the coasterworld. Even if it's not the best, they came out with it first and they should be thanked for it. May the CoasterGods look down highly on Vekoma International. ----------------- The SFMM Salvi: "Goliath Jr. looks to intense for me" "I want to go on something more exciting than X"
. We define flaming as the intent of the topic is to spark a flame war, objectionable retaliation, and the like. Examples of these topics would include; My park is better than your park.., or Park X sucks... etc.
Look at the part that says "Park X sucks." Does that not go for Manufacture X sucks? ------------- Parks for 2001: SFEG, Lakeside,Funtown USA, Palace Playland, HP,BGW,PKD,Alton Towers.
why does every topic turn out to be everyone saying what someone else said that was wrong or unfair in their post. Can we stick to the topic for once please? Personally I think its gonna be awesome, the model looks incredible... Flying and flipping into those tunnels will be GREAT, like all B&Ms

Well sorry Spiff, but I hate to burst your "I am the **** who knows all" bubble, but Stealth has two back-to-back corckscrews. Forgot about that eh? Why does Vekoma need more trash? Are you their garbage man? You contracdicted yourself again, because you said they need to stop making trash. Uh..

For the people dissing TrBiggar, perhaps you haven't seen his posts in other thread. Almost all of them, in not all have been demeaning to Vekoma and other members here. Doing this is cause for removal from the site, if anything is.
A double station means that after the break run there is a piece of moveable track that slides back in forth to allow the train to get into 2 stations. The reason is that flying coasters are a pain to get into (or so I've heard)...that way you can maybe run a true 2 train op with 3 trains ;)
