Rob Ascough said: Is it just me, or do the ribbon boards look very narrow? Those Intamin wood coaster structures always look a little weird to me... a little sloppy... not sure why, as I can't put my finger on it.
Looks the same to me, like there's not enough wood in the structure. I figured it's because the prefab track is stronger on its own, it doesn't need the dense structure you see on a traditional wooden coaster that's needed to support the hand-applied laminates.
The "sloppyness" of it seems also a little intentional to me... as if they would like to emphasise the "out of control"/"catastrophic" character that wood coasters have by letting the wood bars extend at random lengths or breaking horizontal lines by quasi-randomly displacing the bars. They should have gotten an architect to do a proper application of random for this purpose imho.
But they probably know what they are doing... the coaster will look absolutely amazing when it's finished.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
I'm having a hard time figuring out the layout between the turn following drop #2 and the MCBR, which is parallel to hill #2. Seems to me there is still an entire section of this ride yet to be built as the turn following hill #2 is too wide to connect with the MCBR.
