With so many options,How would you design or think future 4D designs might be like?
Free fall drops,in line twist drops,double flips,etc.
What elements do you think would be cool on these designs?

I think they are cool the way they are...

Badnitrus has an awesome imaginary 4D named "Alien." Check it out here; http://badnitrus.danimation.com/Alien/Alien.htm

I suppose (for a basic starter) you'd look at the kinds of moves used in gymnastic sports such as floor gymnastics, DMT and trampolining.
Could you imagine performing a "killer" (aptly named!). It's a quadruple twisting, double back somersault. So, you twist (horizontal) 1440 degrees and rotate (vertical) 720 degrees.
"'cos you know, it's strange! You stand in a library and go "AAAAARRRRGGGHHHH" and everyone just kinda stares at you, but if you do the same thing on a aeroplane everyone joins in!"

I dont have a lay out, but wouldnt it be cool of the ride op's had "joy sticks" to control which way the seats spin (forward or backward) Like, for X I mean. Different experience everytime. :)

i think a cobra roll would be awsome on one of those.

SOBRules, they couldn't do that. The seat's rotation has a set course that they will run using guide rails. The course is designed very precisely so the human body can take the Gs.

The following statement is true.
The preceding statement is false.

An incline loop with a 360 degree flip would be very cool

I wish that they would do a loop. It would be kinda cool to see what they would make the seats do going through the loop.
CP in 2002, get to the point

Remember X is a protoype maybe the next 4D will have a loop

How about a helix with the train perpendicular to the ground with the seats rotating in the opposite direction of travel.
Run the track through a tunnel but have the tunnel so that it's not wide enough for the train to go through but tall enough and rotate the train 90 degrees just before entering the tunnel. Talk about head and foot chopper.
How about a totally enclosed X with lots of special effects. You wouldn't have any idea where you were going or when you'd be flipping.

Yeah!! "Can I adjust that seat for you"? he-he.
If I'da thought about it a little longer, I'da spent more time thinking.

What they sould do is have a gyro drop with this this and have the thing spin while going down instead of up and have the seats fliping while going down too. You wouldnt be able to walk after that...cool.
