I like the second video with the girl trying on the backpack.
I hope I'm not the only one who noticed that SFNE's ride is going to be a clone of this one. If you pause the video when it shows the ride, you can see the banked turn going through the vertical loop and the straight section (not sure if there's a zero-g roll or not) going through what appears to be a dive loop. *** This post was edited by Z-Man on 12/12/2001. ***

The link is not working for me. I guess I'll try again later.

its not a clone.

There are several suttle differences, Not much but its pretty different. Theres no 0-g-roll like at SFNE but there is an S bend and posssibly a helix after the corks. The Brake run? is also pretty much perpendicular to the loop. I think its a good 20ft shorter too.

Anyone think that loop is suprisingly circular? http://www.nscallen.freeserve.co.uk/janfu.jpg to see what i mean.

Does the coaster have a name yet.

roomraider - they're using a wide-angle lens in that picture, so everything looks a little distorted.  Although, if it's a shorter loop that most of the 120 foot types we've seen in this country, it probably could afford to be slightly more rounded than usual.

this layout looks like the SFNE floorless!

That actually looks REALLY cool.  It seems to be not very high and not very long but a very INTENSE ride none the less.  Almost like a custom Arrow corkscrew.

very funny and kind of pathetic.. THe girl with the bag pack and the guy who got hit on the knee.. Screamed like crazy....Makes no sense.. The coaster looks cool but how can they show the coaster already because it hasn't been made yet.. The video looks like it was already there..

"Roar" You'll never hear the end of it!

ROAR the coaster is open. It has been for almost a month. Which is extremely clever if its not been built yet.

The ride is open.

ROAR: To the girl, the backpack was like a Horsecollar (they both go over the shoulder), I think it was supposed to be like giving her flashbacks of how terrifing the ride was or something. At least. thats how I saw it.

I think he point in the backpack one was that she went into a store to practice screaming with the hoarsecoller restraints.

Hence the Attendents supprise when she starts screaming :p
