I haven't seen this yet posted here, but I may be mistaken... what coaster is this? It LOOKS like a Giovanola based upon the track style & coaster, but checking on RCDB, I'm just not finding it. From the looks of it, might be Hong Kong or Japanese (building styles).
Whatever it is, that definately looks sweet, a much better (and prettier) effect than Anaconda at Kings Dominion.
Anyone know what it is and where it's from?

That's "Vanish" in Japan... "Diving Coaster: Vanish" to be specific
look it up www.rcdb.com

It has OTSRs and no inversions... bummer.

Looks like a somewhat sexy little non-looping mega coaster... but I'm leary on the manufacture. "Senyo Kogyo Co., Ltd.
" ? Is that a subsidary of Arrow & Giovanola, 'cause the track looks Arrowish & the train-style looks Giovanola... although small, looks fun.

It's an ok little ride. The splash effect isn't really noticeable on-ride, but is really cool for spectators.

It's at Cosmo World, but since several people here already posted the link the RCDB site, I guess you figured that out by now. To be quite honest with you, the best ride at Cosmo World was the Log Flume. You actually get airtime on it. I really liked the park, everything was literally stacked on top of each other. If you would like a good read on the park, then check out the Japan Trip on ECC's website. They have a good amount of photos there. *** Edited 3/17/2006 12:47:11 AM UTC by Coasterphan***

Whenever I see a thread called "what coaster is this?" (or "Was ist das für eine Achterbahn?", or "ou est le rollercosteur?") I want to type "Vanish" without even looking at the picture.
This must be the most prominent coaster around the world. Where do people find this picture?
wiki wiki wiki wiki...ahh shut up!

Well, Break.com was where I stumbled across it. Usually I'm fimilar with some of the foreign oddities in coasters, but this one caught my eye... mainly 'cause it's overseas, it's made by a manufacture who never made another coaster before or after this one, and it's got no record-breaking feats except a cool effect that can make for one Kodak moment!

That's pretty cool. I would like it better if it actually dived into a lake instead of a shallow pool.

IIRC, there is a pov avaliable on theme park review dot com ;)
