Why not yet?

Came across these pictures

and it made me wonder why such an element ( note the miniature, not the real ride ) hasn't been attempted, as far as I know..... Seems like it would look really cool as well as providing a new way to put two loops in a row.

It is pretty sweet looking. As with anything, I imagine, it's a matter of time before they do something like that.

The track almost collides at the cross-section at the bottom. That would be a true head-chopper. A bit dangerous don't you think?

Perhaps you can suggest it to Vekoma? They don't particularly care if you can survive their "exotic" elements.. ;)

LOL... Those pictures are from Knott's and that mini coaster was underneath the one...the only... Windjammer. :) They were taken out with the ride.

Inclined Loops linked together would be pretty cool, but how about on a coaster that isnt just a shuttle loop?

Looks cool!

Kinda like Dueling Dragons. It can start out facing each other going down the hill, then cross each other in the double-inclined loop and then do more stuff like that for the rest of the ride.

Now we're talking two different things.....The pictured elements can only exist with one train, as it is one path. However, two inclined loops interlinked on separte tracks would be quite cool too. Wouldn't mind Mr. McVeen animating that duel for us.

Dale, kinda reminds me of a tighter version of this ( http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery185.htm?Picture=4 ). Though I *do* like it as a shuttle looper.

That looks to me like nothing more than a bowtie from early Arrow that's had the entrance and exit tracks wrap - that version certainly looks more flowing than the non-wraped one.

-----------------
So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

Speaking of the Knott's model, anyone know what happened to it since that land was reclaimed for Xcelerator?

I thought of this exact idea! I tried making one in RTC but it won't work.. it looks like the Biohzard symbol. They should make a ride like that and call it "Biohazard".

Wouldn't the positive G-forces be a little to strong between the two loops? Maybe it could be done.

Looks like fun though.

Please God, help me to spell words correctly, so that I don't get insulted by people who are perfect and wiser than myself. Amen
