Setpoint Seizmic At PKI in 2002?

Thursday, May 3, 2001 11:05 AM
With the adding of another Flying Super Saturator at a Paramount park, maybe they will put in an initial installation of the Seizmic at PKI? What do you think about this idea? They (Setpoint) say they dont need to be the biggest or baddest just unique. And that falls into the possible new PKI mode. It would be a coaster that appeals to many people. I would love to see it!

I'd love to see Setpoint try to do a seizmic hyper. Remember they said that it could split into two and duel. Wouldn't that be something?

P.S. I hope I don't see this on Wild Rumors/Random Notes on Thrillride this week.

The seizmic would be awesome, expecially if it is built as a hyper! For a shot of a model train click the link below (model at the IAAPA 2000) then click front or back.

They won't get a S. Saturator. I think they have enough kiddie coasters!

If FoF got that great of a makeover than why can't I?

Honestly, if the Arrow 4D takes off in a big way, I wouldn't expect to see to many Seizmics. If you think about it, they're set up in a similar fashion, but there is much more to the 4D. I just don't see many parks opting for the "lesser" version of a similar coaster.

Which is unfortunate. I think seizmic sounds sweet.

"'lesser' version of a similar coaster."
Let me tell you 4D and Seizmic are not similar. Ignorance is not bliss... What you say is like saying Diablo & Diablo II are the same...

They are two styles of coasters. They are simmilar in these few ways:
1. They have seats on the sides of the track
2. They run on track

They end there... Do Seizmics even invert? I don't know for sure.
It would be cool if they did get one, I'd try to make my way to PKI in 2002 then.

Woah horsie. Somebody took that a little too personally. First of all, I'm not ignorant on the subject, and I don't appreciate the comment. The whole point of Seizmic is to give a better view by eliminating the inverted seat supports, while still giving that leg-hanging thrill.

The 4D gives a similar experience, while also inverting people from the seat base itself.

I put "lesser" in quotations because it could be viewed as such. Notice that I disagreed that opinion. So before you go insulting people with that "ignorance is not bliss" junk, read the entire post and then learn to state your opinion without extracurricular comments.

Yeah, I realize that a Seizmic is not as exciting as a 4th Dimension coaster, but read the info on the company profile on ThrillRide. It says it is a thrill ride that is good but is 'cheaper' to build. PKI could put in a new ride but still save a few bucks. Also having the only one makes it unique as well. And I agree I would like to see a dualing/racing version. Remember what the Racer did in the 1970's........

If I`m correct the 4D`s by arrow are one train. The seizmic is actually two coasters that can race/duel which would make capacity great if they could manage to split the track for entrance and exit on each side of each train. That would really help Paramount`s Kings Island`s capcity!

I'm actually MUCH more excited at the potential of Seizmic designs than 4D's. The 4D just looks like it could be TOO disorienting, IMHO

They had Beast & Son Of Beast. What if they put in a Seizmic and made it a sequel to the Racer?
Something like 'Racer II'.....
