According to the report the dueler will have one sit-down and one suspended. I assume this is a B&M we're talking about?
Vekoma actually. Go figure.....!
Indeed, it'll be interesting to see what the ride quality is like. I'm going to make an effort to get there next year...
Supposedly the dueling coaster uses LIMS instead of a chain lift and launches you off the top.
I was really tired when I read this link last night, so apologies in advance if I missed something obvious.................but has an opening date been announced yet? Thanks.
This article shows some tiny pictures of the dueling ride. In the 7th one, it looks as if the invert will literally fly inline over the non-inverter. Nice.
Updated construction pictures. You can see the dueling coaster is pretty much complete and trains are on track.
