What sounnded like a strange concept (launched watercoaster) seems to become an unexpected, sensational reality. Check out the new construction pix of Lotte Worlds prototype insanity "Atlantis Adventure".

It'll be interesting to see what the trains look like.

The rolling/floating stock is especially designed for this new attraction. It is said that the passengers will have a raised seating position to experience the coaster and the water parts more freely.

I donĀ“t quite know what to make of this, but it sounds like some sort of floorless design.

The French Revolution Vekoma coaster was featured in their Crowds magazine as having received new trains recently, so it may be smoother than some Vekomas, too.

Regarding the 'raised seating position', could this just be low sided 'boats' and tiered seating?

'Rumours say that a german park will get one next year, but we have to wait and see if it will be anythinh like THIS'.

That german park is very likely to be Heide Park from rumours I have heard and read. It is looking for a alternative 'big' ride after the 400ft coaster planned for 2004 fell through.

Just took a look at the pictures. There seems to be a piece of the track that is vertical, is this correct or is it just my tired and weary eyes playing tricks on me. Can someone confirm what I see?

Damandan,

Looking at http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1646.htm?Picture=6, there is at least a very steep piece of track towards the centre of the picture, so it looks as if you can expect some great turns on the ride.

I assume that this will be simply a launched coaster with a watersplash as opposed to a real water ride, like Posiedon for example.

Is this ride similar to the Intamin water ride that is opening up at Gardaland in Italy?

Lotte World is a cool little park, My Army pals and myself spent a Saturday back in 95.

The whole complex is Lotte Department stores answer to the Edmonton mall but with both an indoor and outdoor park and a 10 story; if I remember right, store with everything from groceries and food courts in the basement/subway station to fancy resturaunts on 9 and 10. Directly across the street is the cities baseball stadium, part of the 88 Olympics complex, we even went to a game one Saturday.

The French Revolution was a nice little ride, I enjoyed it very much.

Looks awesome so far. Just the twists alone make me wanna ride it, let alone it being a launched *and* water ride.
