Weight and drag coefficient of specific LSM coasters

Sunday, September 2, 2018 12:45 PM

I am a student of mechanical engineering from Germany currently working on my Bachelor's thesis about rollbacks of launched coasters. I'm looking to support my work with some specific technical data like weight of an empty train (and its car) or drag coefficient. If anyone know about a reliable source/link of any LSM coaster, please tell me:)

Thank you very much in advance, I'd really appreciate it!:)

A laden train on Raptor at Gardaland weighs ~18,000kg, with a six car train therefore Thunderbird at Holiday World would likely weigh ~15,000kg with five cars?


Nothing to see here. Move along.
