UK - Dayton Manor's New Roller Coaster

Wednesday, January 26, 2005 5:17 AM
The description of the ride given by Maurer Söhne makes 'Barnstorm' sound really special, but then again, they are only words -

"The ride gets off to a lightning start, with an initial descent right after the station, down to the Humpty Bump Lift, which carries the car up vertically to the impressive inverted backward roll with lift-off forces of -1 g. The car then plunges down a steep loop figure with a top speed of up to 70 km/h. The next ride figure is a thrill for both passengers and onlookers alike is a very tight, high camelback, in which the passengers again experience negative g-forces of up to -1 g and plenty of air time. There 's no time to catch your breath, as this is followed immediately by the Bent Cuban Eight. Like the Humpty Bump, this exciting new inverted figure, specially developed for Barnstorm, is based on an aerobatic figure. It offers two further inversions and looks like a vertical figure-of-eight that has been bent in the middle by 180°. A final high banked curve leads spectacularly back to the station. The total ride time is about 50 seconds."

I've added the whole artcle from X-PRESS magazine to www.themeparks-uk.com, its also available on their own website. TP:UK also has the computer generated plans and an official 'teaser picture' which is actually the first x-car roller coaster!

Sort of, well the same track/train technology, but i think you'll agree the layout of the ride is much larger and more impressive.
