Hypersonic XLC video?

Monday, July 28, 2003 9:08 PM
I've been searching around for quite a bit today for a vid of Hypersonic, and havn't been to successful. Do any of you guys know where I may be able to find a vid of it, preferably from off the ride?

I can't really point you to a video, but here's a good description:

1.) Train is at a dead standstill and a racing christmas tree lights up (prestage lights only) as an audible warning and beeping sounds.

2.) Train is at top of tophat with almost no time between standstill and tophat

3.) Train almost stops at top of tophat

4.) Train comes down opposite side of tophat and chunkily (is that a word?) makes its way through a curve

5.) Train goes over a tiny bunny hop, at which point the structure rattles and shakes as though it were a portable coaster

6.) *kachunk!* train stops very abruptly in brakes.

That's about as good as a video if you ask me!

I've been on it, I know that much. ;)

I just wanted to show some friends.

Mind you it takes that curve about as gracefully as any Arrow or Vekoma coaster out there. At the end of the ride you say, man that was amazing, but what a piece of crap.

I think that covers it, oh yeah the ejector air at the top and right before the brakes is killer and that launch is unbvelievable, but man, what a piece of crap.

If given the choice I'd choose a hamburger over a hotdog anyday of the week.

You can currently find one on www.************.com in the PKD section. It's off ride and I took it.

[edit] Seems like that war is still going on (rolls eyes) but it's at a site that features force after coaster.
