For those "in the know" about Clementon's New for 04 S&S wooden coaster...
Which layout is accurate? This one from rcdb...
or this one from Screamscape?
Also, any idea on how far along constuction is for this ride?
Joe "hopes it's the second layout!" C.
PS Timber Falls woodie looks *awesome*

Construction pics will be up tomorrow..., and here's hoping for the screamscape layout. *** Edited 2/9/2004 9:25:50 PM UTC by SFGAdv lover***

Does Clementon have that kind of terrain as seen on the Screamscape photo?
I'm hopeing for the version on Screamscape as well. It looks very fun.

Clementon is pretty flat. The second link that Joe posted is new to me. At first I thought it was the Timber Falls ride because of the terrain shown. All I know is, I'm hungry for more information about both of these rides. Mmmmm, more wood please. ;)
Wood - anything else is an imitation

I don't think Screamscapes is accurate becuase the RCDB one was from the S&S booth @IAAPA, but I have seen the Layout of the Timber Falls one also, but in an issue of Amusement Today

IIRC, Clementon doesn't have that kind of terrain. While the actual ride layout may be accurate, the terrain pictured isn't.

Thanks for the Timber Falls link, Joe. That would be the first I've seen of the ride. It looks amazing. At least one of those hills is bound
to produce some great forces!

Those layouts are similar though, especially with the helix mid-ride. Which graphic is newer? Maybe the newer one is the final layout of the ride.

Having never been INSIDE of Clementon, I can tell you for sure that the park does not have that terrain. Come to think of it, no location in south Jersey has that terrain! That "new" layout looks nothing like the previously-released ones, so I can't help but wonder if there is another wooden coaster (unannounced as of this time) that is being confused for the Clementon ride?

is Timber Falls right before the downtown dells, with the mini golf and the log flume?

Rob - the second layout is similar to the first, just seen from a different angle. But I think we're all in agreement that the park does not have that kind of terrain.

Turbo: Yes, that's Timber Falls.

It would be nice if the park had that kind of terrain! I actually never compared the old layouts to the new one... I just don't recall some of those features. Perhaps I should compare.

they're similar, but still pretty different. The original has a much taller first drop (though the second's drop looks cooler) and though the helix is similarly placed, on the scond there's a whole part that crosses back under the first drop towards another turnaround, with what looks like 2 of intamin's 'corkscrew hills'.
I for one am hoping the second is accurate... or that it's a plan being developed for another park. Holiday World has terrain like that back behind Splashin Safari, don't they? ;)

To me that land terrain rendering looks alot like the area in Dollywood where Thunderhead is now.
The Helix on the S&S looks as if it could be where the station is for Thunderhead. The Lift for Thunderhead is on the opposite hillside as the S&S. The S&S lift is basicly where the "S" uphill and drop are on Thunderhead
Maybe the layout on Screamscape was S&S's proposed layout for Dollywood. *** Edited 2/14/2004 7:06:14 PM UTC by coasterpunk***

In that case, thank GOD they went with GCI. ;)
BTW, it's spelled Sunami now, I guess, do to trademark issues. Lame.

Does Clementon have that kind of terrain?
Clementon definitely doen't have that terrain.
Most of the coaster will be built over Clementon Lake anyway.
I agree that the screamscape layout looks better, however, I tend to believe rcdb.

Mid-ride helices DO concern me...they can be fast, fun, and furious - or phast, phun, and phurious, depending ;)....or they can be painful and really take a toll on the ride if not well-maintained. I am sure that this ride, AS BUILT, will be very good. How good it is in 5 years, that's up to maintenance...
P.S. Sunami without a T makes me think Cartoon Network for some reason....CN anime is teh suXorz!

I find it very disappointing that both of the USA's S&S rides are planning VERY SHORT trains like a 4-car, 16 passenger train for Sunami and a 3-car 12 passenger train for Avalanche. The front and back seats will most likely be very weak but I plan to try Avalanche and judge for myself before making any final judgement. I was expecting a 5-car, 20 passenger train or larger for both coasters. *** Edited 2/14/2004 7:19:47 AM UTC by Pink Floyd Fanatic***

Unfortunately, it's the RCDB layout that is accurate.
