    Ah, I wondered how long it would be until someone posted that. It makes The Ultimate look safe.

    I though Arrow were bad for lack of lead ins, but they didn't even bother bending the track at all there. Flat, inclined, flat, it's sheer. :p

    And yes, I want.

    Is the reason it's been so delayed still because they were having issues with the tilting trains? I wouldn't be surprised if they've just completely given up now.

    You'd have to pay me a lot of money not to ride that thing. Specifically, enough money for me to make my own! ;D

    Apparently they sent it round and sandbags got lost in various locations as the trains rocked too much.

    Sandbags can't hold on. Humans have ridden it and survived.

    Orphan Rocker? Blue Flash? Sorry, I thought this was meant to be 'Strange Roller Coasters', not the rides you learn all about on Day 1 of Enthusiast School. ;)

    That reminds me, really must give Orphan Rocker its own topic at some point...

    This is a pretty random one from Japan. The neighbours complained, apparently.

    For some weird reason, I wouldn't mind seeing the Pleasure Beach build a massive version of that! :p

    How does it work though? Is it chainlifted up one side and then dropped down and up to the other?

    I think the Intamin Half Pipe coasters use LIM/LSM to move the train back and forth. It's practically a pirate ship that mated with a coaster :p
