New Impulse Coaster Ideas?

Saturday, August 4, 2001 4:00 PM
I had a few ideas about an Impulse coaster, such as add a vertical loop of boomerang before the spiraling tower.

Do any of you have a few ideas?

Have dueling impulses side-by-side, and have them as close together as possible.

Isn't an impulse coaster S:UE or V2, that type of thing?

Yes, SUE and V2 are impulse coaster's. The Chiller is not a impulse coaster.

I think a 200-ft. tall, hyper-impulse would just add to to the fun...

I think inversions would take away from the feel of the ride.

I think it would be neat if Intamin added the roll in the backwards part of the ride.

How insane would that be?

A barrel roll wouldn't take anything away from the ride, only add to it.

I think the Two Face/Flipside cars would be cool. When you face backwads you would be spiraling downwards, and when you go up the rear tower, you would be looking straight up. And when you lock and your all the way up the rear tower, that would be cool looking straight up and then falling backwards.

An Impulse coaster with a flat stretch of track after going vertical from the station. Then you could be looking straight up, have a few bunny hops, then drop back vertically. Might take some extra LIM'S but what the hey!

Wonder if Compressed Air would work good for Impulse Coasters? Hmmm

Take Montezumas Revenge, Enlarge the loop, Have dual tracks. Fire the cars at each other. Interlock the loops. Or, two rides in one. An impulse on top, and an inverted impulse on the bottom using the same run of track. Supports would be a bit odd on that one. They would have to run though the middle and be attached on either side of the track.

I thought of this too - but a little different. Have them run in opposite directions, racing right at each other - then at the last second, they turn away. Use "face off" style seats, so that you get this "head on collision" effect on both the forwards and backwards trips. My other idea is having an inline twist on the flat section of the track.

Ohhh ! Even better - have the twist right as they turn away from each other - so they "twist away" rather than turn away. That would probably help maintain speed better as well as make for less of a jerky ride.

That's what I was going to say. But, it wouldn't be a B&R: TC. It would be a racing/dueling V2 ride.
