Not having been on the Lost Coaster, it's hard to try and peice the layout together. Could someone please give me atleast a rough idea of it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It's hard to remember much after you enter the mountain...but you after you exit the station, you take a right and enter the elevator. Then you rise for 35 feet or so and head out of the elevator into a dip turn around behind the mountain. After that, there is a twisted drop in front of the mountain. Then you do these two little hills and then hit the double down and triple up turn around. Then, back into the mountain. After that point, I'm pretty lost...but sooner or later you are at the third floor again and suddenly the car is braked to an almost complete stop...and then you do the double down and turn inside the mountain which takes the cars out of the mountain into a curve. This is one of the faster parts of the ride. Then, back inside and somewhere you are taken back out of the mountain by the antique cars and do this little straight part of the track and then you dive down to the left back into the mountain and through the spinning drum, which is not yet spinning. Then back into the mountain for some final twists and turns and then you are braked and brought out of the mountian by guider wheels, onto the brake run, and back into the station.

I know it's choppy, but it's very hard to explain. Hope this helped at least some!

Rode locosumo yesterday for the first time, and I couldn't tell you if that was a good description or not, it's a very confusing layout, with some really sharp turns and some small but fantastic
drops.

Unfortunately, we only got 1 ride as It was shut down the rest of the time we were there.

No it isn't. Scooby Doo's Ghoaster Coaster at PKI uses it and was also the first kiddie suspended.

There are several coasters with elevator lifts, all of the Caripro suspended coasters have them and the one water coaster at a waterpark (I believe it's HydraBlaster, or something like that) has one. What about Setpoint's watercoasters, are those vertical lifts? I think the brand new mouse down under has a vertical lift too (according to our Australian connection). Now as for wooden coasters, it's a first in the modern day as far as I know. But I'm not sure if elevator lifts have existed before on wooden coasters, I wouldn't bet against it.

I am sorry to say that NoGoSuMo was a no go for me yesterday! My only visit this year, and all I could do was stare at it. They worked all day but no luck. Can anyone tell me if it operated for the evening ride session?

Sorry Arrow Guy. I'll be there Saturday. Hopefully they'll be done with whatever they're doing by then.

Yeah - there are a number of elevator lift systems. Indeed the new Scooby Doo experience (to just call it a wild mouse seems so crazy, when it is so much mroe) has a nice elevator, that works more efficiently than a regular lift, with two trains per "shuttle", and one shuttle going up as the other goes down.

Anyway, that ride there look amazing, before I saw that, I thought it was going to be just a nice slow dark ride, with some dips put in for a twist. However, from seeing that, it looks like a full flegged wooden coaster, which is able to fantastically make the most of the small trains with the fancy wheel system. Some of those twisted drops and curves look amazing!

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

I was at IB on Sunday and the ride was not running. According to another ride-op (taken with a grain of salt), there are problems with the oil in the lift mechanism overheating. So, they've ordered a cooling system and are awaiting it's arrival and installation.
