Articulating woodie trains

Saturday, February 5, 2000 8:27 AM
I don't know if anyone has been to GCI's site, but what's the story on these single-bench articulated wood coaster trains? The way woodies are being twisted around these days (in a good way), I have to think these things maneuver like B&M trains.

They're supposed to be running on Roar... has anyone been on them?

I haven't been on them yet but I know the Lightning Racer at Hershey s getting them. I imangine they take the banked turns well though. I know the PTC trains have articulating chassis at least the ones on Twister at Knoebles does but not sure how the Millinnium Flyer Cars work maybe the axles articulate as well.

Roar is awesome anyway, but the cushy heavily padded articulating cars just make a great ride even better. The view from the front seat is a must do and easily the best seat in the house. But I have to say I was disappointed with the other seats. They are so close to the car in front of you, the view is the same as regular coaster cars, the back of the person's head in front of you. At least on conventional trains, there's a bit of space inbetween the cars. But even so, watching the individual cars snake through the wild tight turns in front of you is awesome.
