LoCoSuMo's first train arrives at Indiana Beach

Posted Thursday, May 16, 2002 4:38 AM | Contributed by IB*Dave

CCI's first two cars (forming one train) are closer to riding the rails of Indiana Beach's Lost Coaster of Supersition Mountain. CCI has described them as very high performance, able to handle the very tight curves in and through the mountain.

Show me the photos!

Wow...didn't think I'd see CCI do their own rolling stock again. I love 'em.

Too bad I can't make this my 100th coaster. From the current (changed) schedule, I think it will be somewhere between #72 and #77. Hey, I know....I'll try to make it #75!

Very cool indeed! What nice is that LoCoSuMo is only bound to get better once the theming gets put in later. How cool is this: on my SRM trip I get to ride the newest woodie [LoCoSuMo] and oldest woodie [Leap the Dips] on the same trip!

Good luck on the media day, Dave!

2 cars make a train? I was hoping they'd be single car trains. It'd give more of a mine ride feel but it's the parks desicion.

I was invited to media (my father is a big cheese at Home City Ice) because my dad brings them in a good 50 grand a year with the advertising on the bags and ice boxes they do ffor them. Too bad i had to turn it down. School comes first!

Make it your 77th for IB's 77th birthday. Dave, did they unload those in front of your house or something. I thought I saw the neighborhood kids gawking at the cars in one of those shots.

The 5.5 foot radius capability is what impresses me! Does anyone else think they were stolen from a Giant Wheel? :)
