this thing is huge. I would say that this has to be the first hyper inverted, that first drop while twisting 90 degrees looks pretty close to vertical. Wow.
Apparently it is going to be very smooth as well due to some technology advances (i'' let you read about them) 25 million pounds is a lot of bloody money but hey i am not complaining. I can't wait to ride this beast in the summer when i go over there.
Europe is certainly getting some great coasters this year. Bring em on.
You said it Gyjdnb! Europe is getting some truly spectacular rides this year, not to mention rides recently built, such as Expedition G Force and Superman:The Ride. What with Goliath, Air, Collosus, and now Odyssey, Euruopeans certainly don't have anything to complain about when it comes to coasters!
I think its supposed to be 100kmh which is about 65mph that makes more sense(sp?) Except Im not sure on the height cause if its 235 it should go faster than Deja Vu which is only 196. Hmmm theres my 2 cents
coaster_freak00 is right. It's just a type-o. The person who wrote that either meant to say or mistakenly belives it's MPH, not KPH. Oh, and B&M ROCKS, even with the heaviest train in the world, it will only go so fast, in fact as fast as if you could put a wheel assembly on your computer and send it down the track. Newton said so, so it must be true! ;)
This has be gone over before. Obviously, some of the stats given for this coaster make no sense. And these same stats appear at the park's official web site. Some of the English parks are known for cooking their numbers. They do things like measure the height of a coaster from sea level rather than from the ground that the coaster is located on. And 100 MPH would require a drop of roughly 350 feet.
