Give us a source and little better description on the design. Where's your info. coming from? I don't really think there's been enough information released for anyone to pass any type of judgement. I don't even think it's official just yet.
WHoa.... I'm being misunderstood. It was mentioned by S&S a LONG time ago that the first was going to japan, but I assume it fell through. THey also mentioned one for USA at one point, but we now know the first is goign to Italy.
Well, it wasn't THAT long ago we thought the first Frequent Faller was going to HersheyPark....announced doesn't mean that it's necessarily finalized, and I'm sure Cliff's *thought* they were getting a CCI coaster, LOL.
Of course, Interactive Rides had no *coaster* experience, and CCI built fantastic rides at CRAZY prices...:) S&S has overall a good track record on coasters, the H:XLC situation notwithstanding...
Until there's a paying customer on the ride, I don't think anything's "final"...;)
The new 4-D going to Japan will have a "full-full." That means the train will do a full rotation [aka zero-g roll] while the seats are also doing a full rotation. That's all I know...lemme see if I can get some additional that my contacts at S&S will allow me to release.
