Xcelerators layout?

Thursday, December 20, 2001 3:15 PM
I'm assuming almost everyone has seen the two concept artwork pics over at Screamscape. I was just curious if there was more to the ride than the vertical hill and those turns, like some camels backs or something of that sort. Does anyone know? Either way, the twisting veritcal 200ft climb and drop will be worth the price of admission by itself. My only complaint are the colors, buy atleast they fit the theme.

From the layout I have seen, it didn't look like the ride had camelbacks. Actually, Stengel himself recently told the ECC that the ride didnt' have camelbacks so take that for what its worth.

From what I could make out was this..

-Station

-Launch area

-Top hat-like element

-Overbank turn (similar to MF but slightly smaller)

-Figure 8 ending

Keep in mind that I didn't get a long look at the layout, and it was a overhead layout so elevation changes were kind of hard to make out. Also, I know how things can change so perhaps there are modifications to what I saw a couple of months ago.

He's talking about a non-inverted Top Hat.

That's it. The new name for the thing-a-mabob on Xcelerator is called the "right-side-up-not-up-side-down-tophat element."

I hereby bequeath a new moniker for the element. I will now and forever be known as...(drum roll)...an "Up and Over 180" (with the T2K element being an "Up and Over")

I think it's awesome how the RSUNUSDTHE is supported, or the lack there of. they like an impulses, and the bock track is so strong it doesn't require further support. Very cool!

I recreated it pretty accurately, I'd say, with No Limits.  It's posted over at CoasterSims.com...  It's called "Knotts Xclerator".  You can do a search for it.  Or you can just look for me...  I go under the same Alias everywhere...   It'll give you a good feel for the ride, I Hope you enjoy it...

It would be nice if it had a few bunny hops at the end.  From the looks of it though, it won't unforutnately.

 No bunny hops, no helix.  The concept art is the actual layout....
