Jubilee Odyssey goes vertical at UK's Fantasy Island

Posted Monday, February 18, 2002 4:51 AM | Contributed by ColumbusCoaster

Construction is well underway on Jubilee Odyssey, Fantasy Island's record-breaking Vekoma coaster. Not an off-the-shelf SLC, Jubilee Odyssey will have a custom layout that will send riders through six inversions. When it opens, it will hold the record for being the longest supsended coaster in the world. Red track and white supports have already gone up, and the coaster is due to open in late May.

Show me the photos!

I think whoever posted these photos needs to get a mirror due to Geocities transfer limit which shuts-down the site until a given time.

Boy that's the truth...World's largest hang-and-bang. Serial Thriller at SFWoA is one painful ride. It wasn't like that it's first year.

"World's largest hang-and-bang... there's a title to be proud of!"
And it seems that often larger coasters get rougher than smaller ones...ouch!!

Seriously, I hope for Vekoma's sake and especially Fantasy Island's that it stays smooth and is successful, but we'll have to wait and see. I think odds are strongly in favor of it getting rough :(

I know that SLC's are hardly the smoothest coasters around, but surely it's better to wait until people have ridden the ride before you start to mock it.

You wouldn't be doing so if it was in the US.

It's finally working.  Nothing much.  Just lots of pictures of station or brake track and some track lying on the ground.  Red track, white supports.

What are y'all talking about? The Feb 4 pics show the brake run, turn & station track as well as supports for the lift & the huge loop standing in place.
