Joker is the park's flying carpet-style ride... it sat right beside Hercules' hillside drop from the station to the left. That happens to be close to the walkway that connects the two "levels" of the park.
Now I am starting to visualize this. Unfortunately, it sounds as though the first drop will not utilize the hillside to its advantage. Guess you can't have it all...
South Whitehall's website had the ride height listed at 95' (same as Herc's as a reference). The listing mysteriously disappeared w/i a few days. hhmm Well, at least I got to see it! To play along with the inversion configuration that someone threw out. Wouldn't that flatspin have to be pretty darn big and have a high acceleration to make it through the cobra roll? The elevated flatspin idea seems odd to me. But a large flatspin seems to fit more. Am I the only one thats happy that Hydra won't have a vertical loop? Yahooo for originality! *** Edited 6/27/2004 3:57:09 AM UTC by DorneyDante***
I'm more unhappy than happy. While I'll agree that vertical loops aren't very creative and unique, I do think that they are great elements. I love the upside-down "float" that occurs at the top of the loop of looping/floorless B&M's.
