I do understand what your saying, however, I believe if you did place those trains on a ride like the Voyage that they would perform quite well. Only an assumption yes and no way to know, but that's what im thinking.
Of course though the ride would need retracking and re-profiling to make the best out of the trains, but to me it would be worth it.
Maybe it's just me, but I can't stand the PTC trains. It may be due to my height, but that lapbar drives me nuts. It pushes my leg on the side and is very uncomfortable. If PTC had a T bar those trains would rank much higher on my list ;)
I wish we had a a GCI Voyage to check out and compare ;) Wouldn't that be nice!
I would be a bit more worried about the Gerstlauers on Son of Beast than I would be about PTCs on Voyage. The rides we got (all trimmed) were far from uncomfortable. I guess people haven't been on Millennium Flyers when a coaster isn't tracking well. Roar at SFDK is one example that MF trains don't fix everything. It runs great when the track is kept up, but a pothole still feels like a pothole.
So would it be foolish to predict that if PTC's version of the MFs (single style cars) are successful with the Ravine Flyer II, then maybe we will see these on The Voyage in 2-4 seasons from now?
MFs don't seem to have that short of a length between each set of wheels on each car than that of the 4 seat PTC's. But who is to say what PTC is cooking up or if it's even true that they are developing such a different style train...
I've gotta be honest here. Rode the ride this weekend and the trims hurt. Still a great ride, but the triple down in the tunnel used to be my favorite part of the ride I think and it has really been neutered. You're basically all the way down the first hill in the tunnel before the brakes let you go.
Honestly, it didn't feel the same as last year although as the day wore on it got better and better.
Legend was running great and I got to finish the night with two pitch black rides on that since they closed Voyage's line about 20 minutes before 9. Last year the Voyage seemed to totally outshine Raven and Legend, but this year, I really appreciated them again.
