New Coaster for Port Aventura, almost 4D?

Seems like a lot of work in designing new cars for a ride that will be, at best, like the floorlesses or inverts that B&M's been making for years.

I hope that video is not the real layout for the ride, yawn!

This video indicates it's going to be the fastest in Europe.

TTD without a tophat maybe?

With Arrow's structural problems with the 4 outside seating, not sure how well this thing will hold up if it's going to be pulling some heavy G's in the turns.

I think in the future if the coaster not that thirilling they could make the seats rotate to make it a better ride.

I think you misunderestimate the amount of engineering that would need to go into that.

I don't like the idea of freely rotating seats on a coaster. Controlled rotations, yes. Free spinning... heck no.

Maybe they could put a little computer in the trains so the can program the movements for the seats.

ApolloAndy's avatar That would be a engineering and maintanence nightmare. Think about all the trouble with the Vekoma flyers and that was just to keep the seats in one position.

On board control systems = bad news.
