Has anyone notice these Maurer Söhne X Coasters?
From the their site, the ride car design looked promising. But these coasters (http://www.rcdb.com/installationresult.htm?column=1,10,3,4,5&order=1,2&model=262) are just plan ugly. This is disapointing, what are your comments on these coasters?

They look kind of neat to me. :)

Yeah, I think they grow on you. I just love the innovations Maurer has come up with. Not exactly incredibly groundbreaking, but at least somethings different.

Is there some sort of launching system on G Force at Drayton Manor Park?

Sky Wheel, one of their creations using a veritcal lift. G Force most likely has some sort launch system to get it to 50 mph.

Ugly makes it a disappointment? I think Stormrunner is one of the ugliest coasters in existance. I can't wait to ride it, though, because I've heard nothing but good things. Can't judge a Coaster by its looks. E.G.=mean streak.

The Sky Wheel is indeed ugly but I have to say that G-Force does have a sort of Schwarzkopf-look.
I like the fact that it fits in the same space as a Vekoma Boomerang and it looks like its going to offer lots of thrills in such a small space (without any headbanging).
Those coasters are definatley NOT launched. The so called "humpty bump lift" (stupid name) is capable of pulling the cars up a vertical hill and even extend the lift to go upside down. Surely an odd feeling while hanging in the lapbars.
On a side note: I was checking some rcdb-pictures of Drayton Manor and i had to laugh about this one: http://www.rcdb.com/ig814.htm?picture=19 apart from the signs it looks 100% like a screenshot of RCT3 *** Edited 7/14/2005 2:32:32 PM UTC by tricktrack***
