The Batman Train is on the track no with lapbars! You can see a picture of the train at Gadv.com. Hopefully we will see Batman along with his trusty side-kick very soon.

It has been there for a while. The problem is the thing is too light without the otsrs and keeps valleying

I don't buy the "it's too light theory". If that was true, wouldn't it valley when the train was empty? I'm not saying you're wrong, just trying to be logical.


EDIT:

If you think about it, how much lighter would a lap bar and foot pegs be, versus an OTSH? I just believe that the problem isn't with weight, but something else.

ummmm....it did valley when the train was empty, they are testing it now. nobody has ridden it yet.

and BTW a chiller ride op said it made a sucsessful test run after having weights put into it behind the seats to compensate for the OTSR.

Ummmmmm..... I meant when the train had OTSH's and was empty. I know it's empty now, doesn't take a genius to figure that one out.

I doubt they give it a faster launch, so what is there to do now?

They need to put it through it's proper testing stages. Now that they changed the wheels and it can complete the runs, it shouldn't be too long.

Yea but the train is lighter when it is empty with lapbars, than when it was empty with otsrs. Get it? If not.......

I got a question.

How do you know all this stuff? How do you find out about all this stuff like that it got new wheels? What are your sourses?

Are roller coasters my life? NO, but I certainly like them!

Steel coasters get their wheels replaced constantly. It should make no difference in terms of speed, just smoothness.

Nope, still don't buy it. I mean how much lighter is the train with lapbars and foot pegs versus OTSH's? I'm sure Premier knows about the weight and would have anticipated any difference.

I'm with you rollerfreak. I doubt Premier didn't take weight into consideration!

Thank God! A voice of reason! It's just logical. I don't think the engineers at Premier just threw the lapbars and foot pegs in and said "man I hope this works"!

I don't put too much stock in anything Kyle (Coaster131) says. He's also the one who's claimed that there's some big land clearing by the log flume for a new attraction for 2003, (ha, that's been there buddy!) and the clearing waaay back in the woods, well, don't hold your breath for anything there, either...

If the train's weight was an issue, wouldn't that have been an issue on all of the other Premier launched coasters that have already received the lap bar treatment? Plus, I find it difficult to believe the difference in weight is that great... I am sure that Premier would have compensated accordingly with heavier lap bar equipment if it was an issue.
