New 4D in Japan under construction

Tuesday, January 17, 2006 6:29 AM
Finally there is proof that the ride is being built and that it really is a 4D-coaster:

:) Funny to see how pictures spread. i uploaded and brightned those pictures yesterday after getting them off a friend over there.

The ride looks pretty cool. apparently it stretches a very long way from where double loop used to be over to panic clock (seen in the picture). (which is apparently a long way). Hopefully this will generate some more interest in the 4D design if S&S can pull it off

As I remember the layout of the park, the former Double Loop site to Panic Clock IS quite a ways off.

I wouldn't mind getting back to Fuji-Q...

I cant tell from the pictures; does this have the traditional four rails, or the rumored simplified three-rail version?

Wouldbe a nice replacement for Double Loop. That coaster beatthe crap out of me.

Does anyone else see the irony here? That park is the SFMM of Japan :)

Four rails.

OK...I only saw two pics in the link provided. Are there other pics available? How can anyone tell from those two pics how awesome it'll be or what the layout is?

I'm glad to see another version of this ride being built even thought it's in Japan. Maybe this time the bugs have been worked out.

I still have to get to Cali again to try X.

Me thinks I be the topic of teasing with my previous "awesome' comment.

To me, Im just excited that this is going up, and yes, the colors, the rails, the supports and the track "look" awesome. I hope it has success.

I think it's going to be longer than The Beast.

is that a full loop i see, or is that part of a different ride...

it would be cool to see a 4d that stays in position for the first drop and for the loop, but then surprises the hell out of everybody everything after that...

or like do like a backwards loop through the forward loop or something crazy like that... :)

Looking at Xs similar first raven turn...

...it seems the support structure is changed a little bit, but very similar. I wonder if they added those extra tubes as a response to Xs static problems)
The new installation seems to be a little bit smaller (about 7 against 8, if the distance between the track ties is the same).

What if it ended up being a clone of X... that would be interesting. From the footers, looks like the layout will take up about the same amount of land.

Ohh noo! Not another clone! :( :(

Since when do the Japanese clone American-made products? ;) *** Edited 1/19/2006 5:27:26 PM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***

The outline of the footers does seem to indicate that it will be a mirror image of "X".
