How will X compare to the new Japanese version from S&S

Thursday, February 24, 2005 11:43 AM
The Japanese version will be bigger faster and more elements. Including the full full. An inline twist with a full backwards rotation. Does anyone know more?

BullGuy's avatar I still haven't seen anything but a brief description of the layout. In the end, no one will no how the two compare to each other until someone rides both.

Never Has Gravity Been So Uplifting.

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.

When did S&S say they sold the first Screaming Squirrel to Japan?

"... sold the first Screaming Squirrel to Japan?"

They sold the ride to the whole country?

Regardless of thier place in the world economy, Japan is not a corporation. It's a country with living, breathing people... and corporations.

Yes, Japan only buys rides through the national government. This isn't common information? :)

Mamoosh's avatar I thought it was Gardaland in Italy? The article states:

And the "Screaming" does not end...Screaming Squirrel, a "tilted" Wild Mouse with breathtaking upside-down drops, will celebrate its debut in 2005 at Italian Gardaland"

I'd suggest against questioning Adam on this...methinks he would know better than most of us ;)

Quinn Checketts, was very vague is opening soon? being constructed when?

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.

rollergator's avatar 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"...;)

You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)

Hey, Cliff's eventually got an AMAZING in-house coaster DESIGNED by CCI, isn't that close enough? ;)

As for the Japanese 4D, other than a rumor that one is being built, where have we seen ANY solid information about specs? I sure haven't, and Adam (rightfully) isn't talking :)

rollergator's avatar LOL Greg, Adam is *talking*, he's just not SAYING anything...:)

Of course, the B&M 4D is still opening in Spain this year, right? ;)

It's testing at the moment Bill but they painted it with invisible paint!

Mamoosh's avatar 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.

I sure as hell hope it's going to Gardaland since that's one of the reasons we're going there this summer!

You're excited about that ride, Robb?
