Alternate layouts for Premier Spaghetti Bowl

Tuesday, September 24, 2002 2:13 PM
I'd been looking at the track layout on Premiers' spaghetti bowls that are scattered at a few six flags and paramount parks. i know that is there only layout right now, and i couldn't imagine how hard it was for the engineers to work that out considering the height clarences and supports. Do you think that they are up to any more layouts that include condenced track like that.

What is Premier up to anyways these days without building many coasters lately except for lap bar exchanges and other work outside of coasters. Are they alright financially and will we be seing some more premiers soon? I sure hope so!

Well IMHO this is the first Prototype that was designed almost 100% perfect IMHO I say almost because it originally had OTSR's!

I believe you could build em faster, taller, longer ect but the only thing I could see improving something like this is a Dueling model.

Now we all know that B&R the Chiller can't run both sides at once

And that's not Premier's fault, its the ride ops isn't it? That or Six Flags is too cheap to have them fix it.

87 different coasters for this year and counting... 149 total!

The spaghetti bowl is far from Premier's only current layout. In the last 5 years only Jokers Jinx and Poltergeist were the spaghetti bowl layout. The Mr. Freeezes, Speed, etc. are different designs.

Most of their recent business has been the hydro coasters and the lap bar conversions, but I suspect that we may see something new coming soon.

Isn't Rock'n'Rollercoaster a little different than FOF, Poltergeist, and JJ? I thought it's layout was unique. I could have just been overwhelmed by the themeing and not noticed that they are the same. Does anyone know?

Rock'n Rollercoaster is a Vekoma

-----------------
All I need is 4.5 million bucks and a half a mile long sliver of land and maybe someone could build me my very own Shivering Timbers. ;)

Hey, Charles Nungester IMHO, you use the expression IMHO way too much. But hey IMHO it's just kinda lame that I'm actually pointing this out. But, IMHO it was so annoying to read your post. But hey, thats just IMHO.

Really? I'd LOVE to see what RRC looks like without the showbuilding...Hummmmph - Vekoma? I think I may have known that at one time but forgot. I tend to not like Vekoma coasters but I LOVED RRC.

How similiar to the others is it? I remember it being very similiar but not exactly the same. Did Premere have anything to do with RRC?

Nothing but perhaps Werner Stengel did. Superman at Six Flags Holland is an outdoor model.

The differences between it and the Premier's are vast.

Oh BTW Dorney Dante, You spell YOU Wrong and that annoyed me.

Chuck, how about a kiss? Nungester, Who will also point out that when you replied to another post on another board. I mentioned I liked Talons color but it was a far cry from the traditional park it used to be.

Isn't the Mad Cobra in Asia the same Premier "psycho-knot"! layout as JJ and Poltergeist?? There is also Superman the Ride at SFHolland that looks kinda like it (very tight, small footprint), but the RCDB says it is Vekoma (maybe this one is like the RRC, also a Vekoma)?

I love the asthetics of the layout, but I read that it's a killer on the neck, awful jerky. I got medical insurance, I wanna ride!

Do you read? I just said above that Superman at Six Flags Holland is the same as RRC and is a Vekoma.

From what I understand, Just about everything at SFH is Vekoma, And not bad either :)

Chuck, who only dislikes the coasters that headbash him but not every Vekoma out there.

Can I be Agustus Gloop instead?? At least he got to eat some chocolate.

Can I ride your Shivering Timbers when you build it?? (You vast knowledge will undoubtably make you rich and you could afford it.)
