Looking for some pics. Help!!

Tuesday, July 27, 2004 2:18 AM
Hi everyone!

I´m looking for coaster pics in which 2 coaster trains are taken on the same shot.

Ex. 2 trains crossing on Nessy´s interlocking loops at the same time.

Or Viper and X trains on drops, etc.

Any help is welcome here !

I always like this one. ;)

That's something that always looks cool, but takes a lot of patience to get the timing of the shot right.

Steel Force and Thunderhawk.

Steel Force and Thunderhawk again.

Go to www.coastergallery.com and click on Islands of Adventure. There are a few of the shots you want with the Dueling Dragons' pictures.

If you look closely in this 360 you will see two trains on SUE
360 Degree Picture of Racing Superman: Ultimate Flight :)

I can tell you though, the best two parks IMO to get roller coasters running in the same place is 1)Cedar Point on the MF midway you can get even 3 maybe more coasters in the picture with some good patience. It's very easy to get two over there. 2) Geagua Lake, with Dominator and Thunderhawk so close, those two are almost always running at the same time making it very easy to get many shots of them together, in quite a few pictures of taken, it look like they are dueling or racing due to their first drops and when Thunderhawk does some flips by Dominator's hill. Also at GL it's easy to get Head Spin and Steel Venom in the same shot though it might take 3 or 4 loadings.

I used to have a digital pic of SFMM with Superman, Goliath and Colossus all going at once. I'll have to search my hard drive, but I'm pretty sure I lost it in a previous drive crash. :(

Ace4242424 already gave a link to one fake, (Photoshopped) and here is another.

Heh. I never even noticed the second train in that photo. I was disappointed in a lot of those pics from BeastBuzz - I acidentally bumped my camera into auto ISO mode and with the light quickly going away, many of them got blurred trains like that.

Fine if it's done right and it's the effect you're after, but horrible looking in shots like that one. :(

As far as finding LNM with trains in both loops, not sure how much it happens by chance, but it'd be an easy one to composite.

What about the cover of this season's guide for Cedar Point. Mantis, Millie and TTD all going. :)

For what it's worth, I have a pic of LNM with trains in both loops, taken from the bridge over the lake with a disposable camera. It was an awfully long distance shot to take with that little camera, but you can see trains in both loops. I don't have it in a digital format right now, but I can change that.

I know I've seen pix of LNM in the loop together. Infact, I think its in every one of their brochurs, you may check there.

I'll look @ mine 2morrow and let you know.

Supposedly when LNM is running all three trains it meets in the loops frequently (all the time?). A quick google search found these two examples: here and here.

edit: fixed links.

When LNM runs three trains, they meet in the loops frequently, but not all the time. If you are in the park and they are running three trains on the coaster, you may have to wait a little to get trains in both loops. When I got my pic, I could see that the timing was getting closer and stayed on the bridge until I got the pic I was waiting for.

All This pics are great.... I personally enjoy the pics that includes 2 trains.

I think that this pictures have a higher dificulty grade because not always 2 or more trains can be synchronized.

Thanks for all your help!

Note: If you want to continue sharing links of this pictures, please continue.......Regards!

Yes, but I'd rate 2 trains on the same coaster as even rarer than two different coasters in close proximity. I'm not sure there's too many coasters where you can catch multiple trains.

(and no, holding brakes/station and station/lift hill combos don't count ;) )
