The Rattlesnake, the first zip line roller coaster in the US opens this month at Florida EcoSafaris in Central Florida.
That looks cool. I've never come across one anywhere else; is this actually a world first?
I gotta be honest. That looks awfully uncomfortable, especially on those dips and drops.
Yeah... all I can do is imagine my crotch getting hammered on every drop.
^That's what she said.
I am sure that it is fine from an engineering standpoint, but I am not sure how comfortable I would be with the track bouncing and swaying around like it does.
Regular zip lining was really fun and not uncomfortable for the balls as you would think.... a zipline coaster sounds awesome and it's about time they did something new to the traditional zipline. :) looks good!
There is one of these in Mexico, which looks a bit more interesting than flying around some pine trees (though the "waterslide" portion looks a bit painful): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM5gYq75Cgk
Edit: This video shows the "waterslide" portion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYFajGm5EmI I didn't realize that was left out of the first video I linked to.Last edited by coasterdude318, Friday, April 6, 2012 7:37 PM
Looks silly and gawd-uncomfortable to me.
It is definitely...interesting...agree that it doesn't look all that comfortable on the dips. They seem very "sudden," where I was expecting gradual inclines/declines.
Looks like Pterodactyl flyers at Islands of Adventure .Last edited by Mtbiker99, Monday, April 9, 2012 7:22 AM
Only with some action. And hopefully not such an excuciating wait.
I think this ride looks like a gas, I would love to try it.
I like the concept, but it looks a little boring. It seemed so slow that it could valley.
