Interesting article about coaster construction

Tuesday, August 6, 2002 7:13 AM

I was sent this link in email, some of you may enjoy it. It basically talks about new developments over the last few years that have allowed faster, larger and more innovative coasters.

Viper423, click the picture of the Chance-Morgan track at the top left under "Our Latest Issue". It should take you to a website that talks about the track and where it's headed:

"Workers at Chance Industries are shown fabricating a high-speed turn-around section for a 60 meter Chance Morgan "hypercoaster," a high-speed, high-climbing, high-intensity roller coaster to be located at Six Flags Mexico City."

That coaster has been sitting on site at SFM since last fall. But, its sitting in the parking lot gathering rust. They havent installed it yet and moving it back to its original location has been talked about for sure.

At this point, anything is possible

That was a great article, B&M Webmaster, thanks. It is always interesting to read about how the industry has improved since the very beginning, and what cool new interesting things we might see in the future.

I also read the part about VertiGO towards the end of the article, and even though they dismantled the ride, Cedar Fair could have kept both rides and I am sure none of the General Public would even know about it. In the end, I am sure they made the right decision, money wise.
