ceadar ponts new ride, launch side, pullout side?

Saturday, October 19, 2002 1:49 PM

i think i may have figured it out! judging form this picture : http://www.virtualmidway.com/mystery/attraction408.jpg

the support on the left side, right above where the track ends, it seems to be facing inwards. meaning that this would be a turn segment, and if you were going up at that point, you would be turning inward. but if you were going down you'd be turning outwards. should this be correct you would launch from the white track, right next to the midway.

This Picture seems to show it better. [url="http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forums/null" target="_blank"> The left side should be the pull out side. This is going to be a twisting tophat. That mount shows that the track will turn to the inside like you say. the track needs to turn to the outside for the train to be upright over the tophat. Looks like we will have at least a 180 deg. twist on the down side and maybe a twist going up to. Way to go Cedar Point.

That is very odd. Unless this coaster is going to have a traditional inverting (going up-side down) top hat, the one side would need a 270-degree twist...

Most intriguing...

edit: fixed # of degrees

Actually, 270 deg. the way it is turning.

I hope it isn't a traditonal tophat. I like airtime. Although with the inverting tophat there will be less people in line because lets face it. Some people will ride a coaster that is 2000 ft high if there was one but would not go on something that went upside down.

Just a thought, probably am wrong, but could it possibly twist up the incline (or down the decline) of the top hat? If the white side is the launch side, then i could possibly go up, over the tophat, then come twisting down, right?

It's being speculated upon that the drop side will actually pull a 450 degree twist like on WT, except this time, the whole train will get the rotation. Notice the right side (launch) has a support that barely twists, while the other side's support arm angle is much more noticeable.
