And its a mini-Kingda Ka as someone else pointed out. Did Intamin either A) Brainwash the industry into thinking these things were not maintanence nitemares, or B) Fix them? Now if only we can get a layout to confirm that RITA is a rocket and what it'll be like...
sounds pretty good to me, kingda ka is probably going to be better though with the height difference and speed difference and etc. But hey, Top Thrill Dragster station, Xcelerator type Top hat, Kingda Ka's bunny hill all combined together does sound too bad.
After reading the article, I wonder if it will indeed have that support structure. Tussauds group were the ones that produced that drawing for the planning board it says, so what they draw may be quite different than what Intamin ultimately does.
But I hope it looks like that, its sexy! Even if it does go back to the debate of will any rockets have the same support structure;).
The only launched coaster in Europe at the moment is Revolution at Blackpool, so it's not exactly much of a comparison. Or maybe they're counting the two other launched rides for the UK next year, at Alton and Flamingoland?
