it looks like some sort of rocket coaster kinda like xcelerator, just with more turns, and it looks like that one segment is a tophat...who knows!

Yeah, well, if that's the layout, I'd hate to see what that kink is near Trailblazer. And that sharp left turn after the station? I'm going to go with Lift, left turn, drop, half-pretzel, meander. Finish with a matrix.

I'm 99% sure it's a rocket, and I'll be 100% sure on Sunday as to what it is. I'm guessing as far as the layout goes: launch, tophat, clothoid loop, overbank, s-cruve or corkscrew/in-line twist, then brakes.

i don't see how either of you come up with that layout... but whatever. are rocket coasters even capable of loops??

sounds a little far fetched to me. i personally am not making any guesses.... because i dont know what this one could be.

Why wouldnt they be? Forces will keep the riders safe. Just look at Schwarzcopf rides with OTSR's.

the only thing i dont get is that 90 degree "turn" after the station. maybe there wont be a twist on the way down? but the layout looks great, id like to see an inversion on a rocket coaster...

Now I'm not supporting the Rocket Coaster idea totally, but why couldn't there be a launch area outside the station? Dragster does it, why not have a turn then have a launch block?

I could see a rocket coaster in the layout, but the thing that really gets me is the element in the lower left corner. It looks like an Immelman/Diveloop.

Edit: Rocket coasters are essentially just like any other coaster. There are plenty of launched coasters out there that have inversions, why would rocket coasters be any diffrent?

Why? Because TTD rolls one train length, approximately, out of the station and then launches. This ride would roll three or four train lengths out, turn left, and then launch? That seems a bit silly. Look at the radius of those turns with respect to Trailblazer and that'll help you to get an idea of the size of this ride. They're not high-speed turns.

If it's a rocket coaster, you're proposing a launch, vertical climb with a 90* counterclockwise roll, over the top and pull out straight. Followed by an immelman? Climb up the hill toward the Condor, high turn over the condor, maybe overbanked. . . then an S-curve into the breaks? That seems like a *radical* departure from the not-even-proven Rocket coaster formula.

But, hey, whatever.

Well...I think you mean "Flying Falcon." :)

Eric, who is a perfectionist.

Edit: See... now the period is inside the quotation marks! ;)

Well, it's Huss Condor, isn't it? :) And, for what it's worth, it should be "Flying Falcon." You'll note that the period lies inside the quotation marks. :p

It doesnt mean it would be called Condor then.

You dont see a ride called "Giant Frisbee."

I also got the site to work. See my post somewhere up there.

I was responding to TalonJosh. The turn in back of the station could be a turn before the staging area, or launch block... Now I don't support that the launch would be in back of the station, but it could be, which is why I posted that. Apologies for the confusion.

Actually, I am going to retract my statement about the rocket coaster after looking at the satellite photo. I could definitely see a rocket coaster in that layout. The layout that 3r1c is describing is quality, and could definitely make for a badass ride. I don't see it as a radical departure from the rocket coaster formula either. It is a completely diffrent layout yes, but why not put in some crazy crap in there? If its an Intamin, it's gotta have something thats off the wall!
