Titan photos show construction nearing completion

Posted Tuesday, March 20, 2001 3:25 AM | Contributed by Lone Star Thrills

The 25 new pics show the start of the brake run and the start of the final helices which show that some may be below grade.

Jeff's avatar Clone or not... can we have one of these at Six Flags Geauga Lake? :)

john peck's avatar Geauga would be a perfect park for one of these, Jeff.

I still can't tell if it will go over the third hill and hit the brakes or if the 3rd hill will be airtime only. I think thats what they did in California, being airtime only.

Soggy's avatar It looks to me like there will be the airtime hill, followed by the first helix, but this will be an upwardly traveling helix. On the Lone Star Thrills update, check the pic on the second row, pic #4. You can see the supports for the camelback peaking then descending towards the bottom of the first helix. Goliath hits the midcourse traveling in the same direction as the lift, I suspect TITAN to do the same.

BTW Jeff, Titan = NOT a clone ;)!

Jeff's avatar I didn't say it was (and if this even degenerates into that stupid discussion again it will go away), only that I'd be happy to have an exact duplicate here on the North Coast.

Soggy is absolutely correct!! Titan is not a clone, first of all, and the helix IS upwards after going up and over the bunny hill.

Soggy's avatar I was just messin' with you, Jeff. (note the ;)) You are one of the few people who can look past the cloning nonsense and see Titan for what it is. A really great looking Hyper!

I could totally see SFWoA getting a Gio hyper. I don't want one there, I'd much rather have B&M or Intamin, but seeing as CP and SFDL have Intamin and SFGAm has Bull, a Gio would be so very unique to that part of the country.

Still, please get a B&M!! :)

That's an interesting observation Legendary. But remember, Giovanola has yet to build an extended design. They've built all of 2 coasters with similar layouts, which by the way, they *didn't* design. We've kinda gotten in this habit of blaming the builders of a coaster for it's lackluster layout. Just hope if SFWOA gets a Gio, that it's an original design because in truth, Gios ride just as wonderfully as B&Ms, if not better. Now if they could just use trains as awesome as B&M hyper trains. Wow, I'm just sitting here salivating over the possibility of Giovanola set loose with a truly spectacular airtime filled layout, whoa baby! *** This post was edited by DWeaver on 3/20/2001. ***

I don't know, I am still all for airtime instead of laterals. A helix here and there wouldn't hurt.
