Sounds like Asia will be the lucky one's to get the first installation. If you were lucky enough to be there yesterday, post a ride review.

I imagine if they did it would be in the trip reports.;) As for the ride, you just know it's going to a California park first. I mean that state already has the Scandia Screamer, Screaming Mummy, California Screamin', Scream. It only makes sense.

I knew Californians were obsessive but...

It looks to be very intense I hope a park on the east coast gets it so I can ride it.

That maybe true but if the harnesses are padded properly then there should be little or no problems with the restraints. Also there are no turns (left/right) that may cause problems with the harness. Although the extended time upside down may. But would that be any different than a looping starship ride?

I hope you're right Robocoaster, I'd love to see one of these in Cali soon. I think the SCBB could really benefit having one of these to replace the boring Hurricane.

Better yet, I'd love to see a park buy 2 of these, set em up facing each other for a dueling effect, similiar to DD. Seeing the other car coming directly at you, then ducking under the track at the last second only inches away would be pretty interesting. And for only 4 million for the set, double the capacity, not a bad investment. Come on SFMW!!!

Upside down time? I thought that the Screaming Squirrel was a non-looping coaster? Unless I'm thinking of something else?

Is the screaming squirrel the first nonlooping upside down coaster? Nevermind; I guess an ultra twister could be considered nonlooping.

I know Lance Hart from screamscape got to ride a very early prototype , you can read his story here. The story is over a year old However.

The ride wouldn't be a good Dueler , as seen in the deseret photograph. It gets shorter and shorter each time.

S&S should definately make a travelling model of this ride.

Small price, small footprint, great thrills for the whole family?

The only downside I can see is low capacity.

Couldn't they modify the layout so that all the flips occur at the same place. They could also modify the layout so that the flips get progressively closer. There are many possibilities for this, and I would like to see it develop further.

Oh, yeah and CP would of course have to make it taller and longer etc.
