Yes, it all does look the same. Note the illustration here. The three types, two, three and four rails, and since all three can be found on Millennium Force, and two can be found on Dragster, it's pretty hard to narrow it down to one ride, especially when the four railed type is found on basically all Intamin coasters. *** Edited 5/5/2006 2:24:28 PM UTC by bobthecoasterguy***
Intamin basicly has three types of track structure, and all three of them can be found on most of they're coasters depending on the part of the ride. In higher speed/higher force areas, the track is a box shape. In mid speed/mid force areas, the track is a triangle shape, in slower parts of the ride the track is simply two rails with ties between them. So a particular shape of track really does not have anything to do with what type of coaster it will be, but if it is box shaped, it is more likely to be faster or more forces will be generated. However, The different shapes allows the track to span different areas between supports. The two-rail only configuration requires that supports be closer together. The box shape will allow you to span greater areas because the shape of the track itself becomes a structural member. So it could be going fairly slow over a larger span (over a midway for example) and still require a box shape.
Comparing photos from another site with photos of dragsters track while it was still on the ground. I think I can say that it is 100% positive that this is Intamin track. If you can find those photos, look at #1. Compare it with this.
Shivtim said: Couldn't the "2 by 2" be a reference to the seating style of a ball coaster/4D? Two people on each side of the track, or two people facing forward/ two facing backward.
I think it's interesting that the ball coaster style trains seem to flip freely, rather than the precisely controlled flipping of S&S/Arrow 4Ds.
But I don't see why CP would put in a coaster with such low capacity. 4 at a time on that ball coaster just won't cut it. If they did put in a 4D coaster, there would have to be multiple cars per train.
I also think if we are seeing track this early, construction isn't too far away and we will begin to see things taking shape. Especially if we start seeing digging.
