You've seen the photos, but perhaps seeing the Giovanola model in motion will help you see what this tilt coaster might be like.
See it in the gallery of the IAAPA section.

ive already rode the turbo force ride at the michigan state fair.it was a blast.when they stop you at the top you can see for miles.the only problem with this rode is the low thruput of riders.it also cost me $10 to ride,but well worth it.

We are trying too hard, we are pushing the limits too fast.

That looks amazing! I can't wait to ride it! But, I would predict that there could be a problem with reliability like every other coaster, and being stuck on that tilt mechanism would definetely not be fun!

Why is everybody so afraid of the tilt mechanism?!
I am sure there will be at least two or three mechanisms being used altogether to prevent the train from turning into a real "flying coaster". I believe that a moving metal bolt, plus a strong break will be enough to hold the train in place.
I am more afraid that the coaster will be very dull after the drop!

The people who are afraid of the tilt mechanism are probably the same people who were afraid of Y2K. It is natural to have a fear of the unknown. It doesn't look all that dangerous to me. It has the potential to be, but I don't think that any park would install it if they don't think it will be safe.
Simcoaster: Are you sure that you have quicktime 4 installed on you system?

Jeff, a small correction. The label of the movie says Giovonola Tile. That should be tilt, no?
