New GravGroup woodie for Texas

Tuesday, December 5, 2006 11:22 PM
I'll bet you still can't complete the layout, even with the pictures!

This ride crosses itself and structure so many times. It was probably one of, if not THE, hardest models I have ever made!! Alot of heavy banking, inside structure....which from a modeling point of view is very hard to do.

The model was built in 1/8 scale.

Ok 1/8th, Not trying to be rude but how can we figure the actual dimentions unless we have the scale hights ect?

Thanks for everything so far tho! :)

I already rode this coaster last year, when they opened it with the name KENTUCKY RUMBLER.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Tom, anymore help you can provide on the layout would be appreciated. I haven't had a chance to study the pics yet, but I'm guessing I won't be able to decipher all of the elements for my No Limits recreation. *** Edited 12/6/2006 4:58:32 AM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***

Mamoosh's avatar I have the layout figured out, although as Tom pointed out there are elements [90* turns?] hidden that the pics do not show. But the path the train takes? That I got. I emailed AVMatt my rough drawing...hopefully he'll post it ;)

My NoLimits model is coming along nicely. I have all of the hills done up to the big bunny hop that flies passed the exit side of the station.

Tom, do I have the layout right so far? Can you tell me the exact height by chance? Thanks! *** Edited 12/6/2006 8:50:56 AM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***

Only because you have a trained eye. It's not fare when your dealing with a professional.

Nice work!

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Thank you. Now getting all of the elevations and banking even close is another story. :)

Ok, friggin amazing, That drop into the low curve under the strcuture should be amazing.

yeah, until it pulls a Voyage and rips itself apart in a year.

It looks fun - I LOVE KEMAH and though it may be seldom known outside east Texas, it really is a neat place that has had rides now for quite a while. Looking at the model at IAAPA, I couldn't help but think it should have flyers on it.

Dude, I rode Voyage on Labor day, It didn't RIP itself apart. It had one rought spot which it had from basically the beginning, My guess is they re banked some areas ect and it will be as good as new in 2007.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Personally I'd rather the ride push envelope and risk ripping itself apart over a ride that eleminates these "ripping apart" forces. If it gets rough, so be it. It will be a more exciting ride than something as precise and controlled as El Toro.

Well in a park that could'nt or wouldn't maintain such groundbreaking, push the limits of wood tech, forceful and insane coaster, I could see it being a issue.

Whats that park in NJ that keeps threatening to shut down but built a new woodie?

Im not saying GCII doesn't build thrilling rides but IMHO they don't come close (Most of them anyway) as far as making me want to get back to ride them ASAP.

Seeing the overhead layout makes me realize this is a much longer coaster than I'd previously imagined.
I survived a Japanese typhoon and the Togo flat ride of death!!!!!!

that's a pretty big 'spot', about a sixth of the ride.

I guess I am glad that El Toro has some element of control, because otherwise my fat ass would probably be tossed on one of the crazy hills.

But good luck Kemah!
