CP's New Coaster: Long!

Sunday, November 17, 2002 10:51 AM
Well I haven't heard this but looking at the Power Tower Cam will give you the idea of what the layout will be and man is that a long straight away or what? The speed on this will be amazing because of the length of time we will get to enjoy it, I think some people will really get into it and some won't, Kinda like a similar ride S:TE

Maybe there will be two towers over 400feet tall. One on each end...

Most of that is brake track. There will probably be, at most, 100 to 200 ft of speed track.

And that speed track will go be travelled extremely fast. The highlight of the ride will be the tophat, so yes it may be very much like the thrill on S:TE, some will get into it, some won't.

What makes you think that there will be 2 towers?

I'm beginning to think that this ride will be really fast and really short, and that the only reason CP is building a ride like this is to cheaply beat the height record. Nothing against CP though!

Yeah, I'm sure you can pick up a 400'+ tower cheap at your local Wal-mart.

Joe, who wonders if he should pick up a couple later.

Seriously...I would guess that this new ride won't be much cheaper than Superman The Escape (if it even is cheaper).

1-800-Thrills-for-less!

Between SFMM and CP, they'll be alot of "whine" served cold this winter.

No wonder parks don't market to enthusiasts anymore...

When I said "Cheaply" I meant they're sort of cheating. I can't really think of a good adjective. I didn't mean that in any relation to it's cost.

This grows tiresome. To the west people complain about Magic Mountain's floorless not being tall or long enough. Everyone is complaining CP's ride will "only" climb to [tallest coaster ever height here]. The same sorry asses will be first in line to ride it, too...
