For me I'd like to see a new S&S/ Arrow suspended coaster with the new floorless trains. Maybe taller as well like a 150ft that would be cool. Another would be a Morgan or S&S racing out and back hyper.
I'd like to see some coasters that have failed in the past reattempted. For instance, I think the layout for the Crystal Beach Cyclone was awesome. I think they could reconfigure it so that it was safe but still maintain a level of intensity. It would be a great way to bring some nostalgia to a reasonably priced coaster.
I would like Intamin to design A Semi-Compact Giga Coaster, related to the old Schwarzkoph Looping Stars. Back to back 200ft+ Vertical Loops would be insane. Not to mention all of the other possibilties. *** Edited 7/21/2005 12:55:16 PM UTC by Blackie***
Hell some coasters NEED a nurse's station now. ;-)
On one of the many "history of roller coasters" shows I have taped there is one in particular (besides the first looping coaster) that still intrigues/scares me......
I am not sure who made it or where the homemade video was shot (and I am too lazy right now to look through my tapes to find what coaster show it was on) but it showed a "spiraling" type of coaster that would also tilt side-to-side. It looked totally SICK and VERY dangerous.
We'll see, there's rumors that Beech Bend is doing *something along those lines*...:)
Personally, I'd also LOVE to get to see one of those "coasters" where the whole structure moved from side to side, "propelling" the train thru the course. Kinda a cross between a Wave Swinger, a Topple Tower, and a roller coaster. That thing looked AMAZING....I think there was one at Coney... *** Edited 7/21/2005 2:24:54 PM UTC by rollergator***
Gator, if I'm not mistaken, I think Tina is referring to something that was kind of like a combination between a coaster and a flat ride. Almost like a large Trabant-style ride with a coaster train that circled around the ride's structure, if I remember correctly. It looked like the weight of the train affected the structure's tilting motion.
Tina - I remember seeing old b&w footage of it on a couple of those history shows, too. They had some CRAZY rides back in the day!
