Something Wrong With This

This is a shuttle loop, but there are two trains.

*Note* I just found out that this was edited, (Should have figured) but its still cool to look at.

That's a great pic, my friend showed it to me the other day asking me how they could get two trains to run at the same time on a shuttle loop ;)

Obviously a Photoshop edit. Although a really seamless one.

Reminds me of "House on Haunted Hill" where they have a handful of clips of 2 trains running through Incredible Hulk's cobra roll within seconds of each other. And the footage is virtually seemless - if I didn't know better, I would have thought it was normal operating procedure.

It looks to me like its just two photos taken by the same camera on a tripod. The two photos were taken just seconds apart, then in some nice art program the two pictures were put in as separate layers and merged into a nice seamless picture.

It'll turn out like a crash on RCT, one train is loaded with dynamite :~D. It's pretty obvious it was edited, and you figure that out later. Very cool, though. Something to scare the gp with.

Maybe they sent one train out then another but the second one just barely went up the lift hill so the second one made it back first;)

What is the angle of the spike on a shuttle loop? It looks pretty steep

I believe Schwarzkopf's Shuttle Loops have 70 degree angles (seems about right). BTW, has Montezooma been repainted?

This is so easy to do with a decent-enough camera. You just mount it on a tripod and take two exposures on the same frame of film. That's probably what this person did, much easier than using an imagine program...

That is pretty kool. I did something very similar for an NL screen shot not using photoshop.

It's a Digital Panoramic photo taken in the same spot at two different times. When you stich the photo's together, the coaster shows up it the twice in the stiched picture. I've done it before and it's an easy mistake. This is just a funny picture so I can see why it was posted.

Does look more like a double exposure than a Photoshop edit. Most Automatic SLRs can do that no worries, and often even easier on the old manual SLRs (thats the way to go - nothing beats the old Olympus OM-1).

I'd imagine that shot was taken on some sort of digital camera, more than likely high consumer model, or low-prosumer, which has that function built in.

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?
