Orochi relocated to France

RCDB lists Orochi and Raptor at track lengths about 200' different. I always wondered where the difference comes from.


I wouldn't doubt that they stretched it out the 2nd half just a little bit because Raptor FLIES into the final break.

No, it's because Raptor is shrinking!


Pass da' sizzrup, bro!

They probably measured the inside rail of one and the outside rail of the other. ;)

It looks from the pics like Orochi may have needed to "skirt" pre-exisiting attractions and deal with a little bit more terrain...or maybe it was done just to disrespect Raptor... ;)

Wow, is it curtains for Expoland then?

Disrespect Raptor? I thought the gulls already had that "covered".


Gator, there are too many people around who don't get that joke anymore. What has happened co CoasterBuzz?!

Oh, and P.S. to delan. Like many of the Japanese parks, Expoland indded has been retired. :( http://www.rcdb.com/pd432.htm

Wouldn't the measurement be taken from the centerline of the track's spine rather than the rail?

Birds ****ting on a roller coaster? I'm on board, right?


It's been a while, but I don't remember any significant differences between Raptor and Orochi. I think gator's got it in it's just a slight localization to deal with terrain at Expoland.
