Two interesting pics of El Toro

Tuesday, April 4, 2006 6:00 PM
I found these two pics that someone must have snapped at a recent tour this first one is a small view of the train for El Toro

I have been following some forums that are interested in the design of these trais because as u can see the head rests are very high up. Im curious to see what they look like... If you look at Balder or Colossus at Heide Park you can see the trais have the normal Intamin Hyper, stadium styled seats but I think these trains on El toro will also have that head rest addition like those on Xcelerator

except for the el toro trains head rest seem to be designed as to make it look like the rider has bulll horns

also i came across this pic

You continue to do this. You create new topics for every update on El Toro. That is why you have the old topics... now use them!

Yeah, you're right, it's probably dangerous and they're not going to run any tests to make sure passenger's hands can't hit anything.

^I don't think he was implying that it isn't safe. Just that it's insane! I know a few headchoppers where I CANNOT let myself keep my hands up even though I know it's safe (or is it?). The crossunder on MF right before heading back across from the island gets me every time.

I don't think anybody is gonna keep their hands all the way up on this one!

Keith2005 just chill out.....

but anyways back to the topic

I know its safe... on S:ROS (SFA) I am usually the only one on the train that keeps his hands up when comming out of the helix... and it took me awhile to be daring enought to do so... as so it was with Joker's Jinx and Outer Limits.... but El Toro... looks like you are sweezing through by not even a ft. looks rather like a few inches. But its going to be a very cool effect!

... but you still don't need to start a new topic for every single freakin' update. Put it all in one thread. That's why they're called threads ...

These guys are right. Same thing I said in your last El Toro thread applies here too. Keep it in one spot - every new photo doesn't need a new thread.

Remember Hades and the construction photos of the Helix where people were debating the clearance and wondering if supports would later be removed, not to mention the argument over whether or not the tunnel was wide enough for two parallel tracks? :)
