It's a shame it can't be powered up and down the track (quickly rather than gradually for a more forceful experience) and at either end of the U-shape, the cars flip before heading back down, as opposed to it stopping and turning before being released. I've no idea how complex that would be to do, though.
I guess the main issue of that would be cost in terms of power. The Bullet used to eat electricity, though im sure we have more efficient systems these days.
For the record, as no one seems to have mentioned, that one in Japan never opened.
Not really a strange coaster, but it's definitely unique- and looks incredible.
I give you Atlantis Adventure.
To those of you who haven't seen it before, it's the world's only Intamin Aqua Trax, and looks like a beautiful compilation of roller coasters. You like launches, this has it, you like intense turns, look no further, you like water coasters, who doesn't on a hot day, and you love beautifully themed coasters- well, this is some of the best theming I've ever seen.
Here's a few pics:
And here's a POV:
Looks like a great coaster, but there's one minor problem: it's in Korea.
Still though, no reason why Intamin can't make another here- although the cost is quite expensive, at nearly $30 million- and I would love to ride something like this.
It does look great, but some parts seem a bit less intense than they should be, and the end does come all too suddenly.
That said, there's a lot of potential with the model, someone really does need to invest in one, it'd probably be perfect for Alton for a start.
The second Intamin Aquatrax is like the Duke Nukem' Forever of enthusiasm. You'll know what I mean if you've been reading message boards for a long time. I've seen Aquatrax rumours every year since I started reading forums back in 2002! If another actually gets built, it'll ruin it.
They need to get rid of that fugly monofail in front of it. </3
It actualy goes through a massive circular hole underground 90 ft down! And it contains huge ammounts of theming! Pluss, it is the only Dive Coaster to have been left to rot!
Nowhere else could you find anything like this!
Not sure if being serious, or sarcastic...
They were going to build one of these at Fanasy Island a few years back
Does this count as a strange coaster?
What is this, I hear you ask?
I remember hearing of Miniatur Wunderland before, it was on James May Toy Stories and it looks absolutely amazing.
I can't even...
^ More importantly, what the balls are those children riding at 0:51?! Not to mention the man behind them. ???
Smegging hell, look how much the wheels wobble as it returns to the station!
Honestly never thought I'd see a roller coaster with a conveyor belt for a lift...
Maybe they had some left over belt after building that flume?
I think this is quite strange, and the pacing of this is awful.
