Does anyone have recent info/video/pics of the Tilt Coaster in action? I have looked around and sent a few posts in some directions but have not heard or seen anything.

Go to Vekoma's website (www.vekoma.com). There is a computer animated video there of the tilt coaster in action. Click on "Product Showcase" and then "Upcoming Innovations".

It should have opened in July, unless it suffered "Delayja Vutis." ;)

Is it completed and open ? One of the sites says "July 2001". Someone needs to get some video footage or at least a trip report !
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

Yea. That is what I meant. I have been to and seen all the above mentioned info. I am looking for info that shows it is running and hopefully photos and video.

i remember back late last year when there was lots of talk about Magic Mountain getting a tilt coaster, but as we all know, we got something much better ;)

I know we have some people on this board from Asia, anyone seen this thing in action (TV news, anything)? It looks great, a little scary, but it wouldn't be as much fun if it wasn't at least a little scary...

Something discussed last time this topic was up was what if that holding mechanism goes that bit too early!.....

Yeah, I read that thread, my 2 cents is that there is some kind of a mechanical locking system that will only unlock the train when in contact with the vertical track.
Hope you know what I mean.

Hey Taipan, don't be boring, of course it will have but just explore the possibilities!!!Then think about that fateful early drop when you get to ride one of the coasters, thats half the buzz innit??!!
