Tongue Element

Sunday, July 3, 2005 4:28 PM
I was doing my usual browse through RCDB and came across Disney Land Paris's Space Mountain. The Third inversion is called a Tounge element. Does anyone no a description of this inversion, or a picture with the lights on? All I managed to spot in the photos on RCDB were the sidewinder and the corkscrew. RCDB says that the element is only on this Vekoma looper.

Look at pictures of the Cutback on the defunct Drachen Fire and its pretty much what the Tongue is.

Since I have blueprints and photos of the ride I can tell you that the "tounge' element is bascially an overbanked turn similar to those found on Millennium Force and Mr Freeze the Chiller and technically not considered an inversion.

Are you able (technologically, and legally) to post those photos? *** Edited 7/4/2005 2:47:31 AM UTC by CoasterKrazy***

I worked on Space Mountain... and its tighter and has more inclinaison than any overbanked I've been on. Its a Cutback, like on Drachen Fire.
