Patent Application

Monday, September 16, 2002 7:23 PM

I came across this patent application today. Heir Stengel is at it again. Check out the patent images and see if you see the same things I do.

1.) Track looks very beemerish. But since its 2 across seating, it has to be Giovanola.

2.) The tower actually rotates to different segments of the course. Imagine taking that loop or being LIM launch backwards!!! INSANE!

3.) This thing looks pretty damn cool.

This has been brought up recently...somewhere on the board. It does look very weird.

Hmmmm,

I was at Cedar Point on Saturday and a lady I met at the park mentioned something about this very idea.

Those look like Premier trains actually...

Looks interesting.

Sounds pretty much like the Giovanola tilt coaster that was shown at IAAPA 2000 (or was it 2001?). The option to go different routes on the track with a vertical or vertical+ drop.

I posted a link to that patent/design back when the first topic concerning the B&M flyer patent with the new loading design was discussed.

It was also posted on GTTP a couple weeks ago.

It doesn't "have" to be anything. Patent drawings are usually illustrative for purpose, to demonstrate the concept. Who actually builds the ride really could be anyone.

Interesting that the law firm is in Cleveland.

That lawfirm handles all of Werner's patents in the US. He has for the last several years.

I realize that it could be anyone who could manufacturer this design, but usually Stengel works in cooperation with the manufacturers when he is working on new innovations. Like with this patent....

Stengel patented this, but Intamin uses it as their new wooden coaster fabrication method.

Not to mention Stengal and Intamin have worked together on a lot of stuff. But Stengal works with everyone.

Figuring out how to effectively block each course, especially if there were more than one tower, would give me a headache. What a tremendous concept, though.
