Dive Coasters

Tuesday, July 31, 2001 6:28 PM
I was wondering why we haven't seen any dive coasters built in the US yet. It seems that S&S vertical rides are very popular, and that a dive coaster could provide a similar thrill. Plus with the reputation that B&M and Gianavola have I'm surprised an American park hasn't tried to get one. Anybody have any thoughts on why we don't have one yet and when you think we will get one?

Look for one in the US within 2 yrs is my guess. Possibly in Ohio, or Cali are my only two guesses.

X could be considered a dive coaster with an 88.5 degree drop it should. I think B&M are coming out with the rides of tomarrow and are some what through with the dive coasters. They weren't a hit like the inverted and standup.

Dive Coaster are expensive waste of time. You do know Ta2k is cheap as cheapness. So unless the park really the trains to hang over the fake vertical drop for 3 seconds and fall into a hole, they will get a ta2k, of course a improvent over hypersonic and the dodnpa thing in japan.
