Towers on Xcelerator

Wednesday, July 10, 2002 1:28 PM

The towers on Xcelerator *look* like they have a bend in them at the twist. Is that just because the heartline of the riders is traveling vertically, so the train has to spin around them, or is the upper section of the tower actually not vertical.

The bend or twist is where you go 90°

We discussed this when they first topped the tower. It just looks that way because the track twists so abruptly and because of the heartline.

Well, it IS in the wall paper section on twisted rails. There're higher quality versions also.

Its a pity about the ugly pollution ruining the sky though.

The Disneyland/Knotts area isn't nearly as bad as other parts of LA such as SFMM.
