Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Which version are you running? I think some of the early versions are not compatible with tracks from the newer versions.

I think either the first or second. 1.5 or something

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar If you have 1.5, you should be able to upgrade to 1.55 for free. Maybe that will help. But make sure you have it correctly registered.

Regardless of whether you get it to work somehow, I highly recommend upgrading to 1.6. The improved friction is reason enough, not to mention the beautiful Anton trains and my persoanl favorite feature: zooming with the scroll wheel.

OK, I got it rode it and thought it's good, Of course you can't go under the station on NL at least my version.

I was under the impression tho that the whole first drop will be under structure.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Yeah, the bottom of the drop/turn should be under the wide supports of the upper turnarounds. I just used NL's auto supports and tweaked the elevation a bit to get some of the boxy structure to enclose portions of the ride, but I can't get it exact, especially since the scale of the supports isn't the same as that used in real life.

Did anything have to be removed to build this woodie? Looks like it will be near the games area. I'm sure glad they picked a woodie possibly with a lot of airtime spots as their first coaster. It would be impossible for them to make a better choice of coaster! :) I was wondering how much land is left for other new rides. Is a pier possible in the future if they want to add more coasters or major rides? Not that they need any more coasters (unless the crowds get so big that they'd need another one) but wondering for other major rides such as water rides. *** Edited 12/11/2006 12:19:15 AM UTC by Pink Floyd Fanatic***

Yup, Less than a acre and 3200ft of track. We have three mid sized woodies in three years. Avalanche, Rumbler and now Kemah.

Chuck, who don't see the airtime moments in this ride but knows there will be some.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Chuck, didn't you notice all of the airtime in my NL model? ;) I think this thing is going to be like a twistier version of Avalanche.

You're joking, right? I easily see 12 section of track that are capable of providing airtime.

I didn't say there wouldn't be airtime, The first drop alone shows that, Im just saying I see more swooping than droping. Trust me, I know the TGG guys and thrill is the the first part of their name.

Mamoosh's avatar I didn't say you said there'd be no airtime. I said a quick glance at the model shows at least a dozen moments of potential airtime.

Potential #2 ride! Can't beat Voyage but VERY LIKELY to be a #1 year round coaster! That's right I emailed the park and they say the rides are open daily. But the park may be closed in Christmas & Easter but it's just a guess. Only time the coaster would not operate is when it's down for maintenence or for poor weather conditions. Otherwise year round airtime pleasure!! :) Hope they have good ride ops! :)
