    Flight:
    1)The action or process of flying through the air: "an eagle in flight"; "the history of space flight".
    2)An act of flying; a journey made through the air or in space, esp. a scheduled journey made by an airline.


    I started this a couple of months ago and figured I would continue. This is a custom designed LSM invert that was heavily influenced by Intamin and Vekoma inverts. I wanted to create something original, but realistic at the same time.

    Tech info:
    0 to 50 MPH in 3.5 seconds
    3 High-Speed Turns
    Twisted Immelmann
    131 degree Overbank
    Vertical Loop
    Inline Twist
    5 moments of airtime
    53 max MPH
    4.5 max +G(entrance of the Loop)
    2,540 ft long
    2 trains w/ 8 cars each

    I like how the turnarounds are lined up, but I'm not a fan of the airtime hill, I'd rather have a zero-g roll or at least have the turn be banked. Anyways, the trackwork looks good, since you aren't going off any style (hence the name custom), and the supports so far look nice, and the ones that are there look sturdy. I also like the special supports you made on the first turnaround over the water!

    I like that you've obviously found your own style. 100 % original.
    Looks really awesome and beautiful, I'm looking forward to its progress (again)! :D

    Absolutely beautiful, I'd love to see more of this coaster.

    You're one of the few people that understand how to make true original rides. Looks cool!

    I've noticed through your previous projects that you make some beautiful scenery (nature wise).

    Amazing as always.

    Small update on the supports:








    There will eventually be games/shops surrounding the brown family coaster:

    I love the support connectors, is the track slightly blue or does it look like this for me because of the blue sky, supports and trains? ;)

    Support work is brilliant, but your sky box not so much. You can see the corners.

    Looks wounder full. Amazing colors, beautiful matching sky, only I agree withe The Architect, the 'box' is visible.

    Love the support connectors your doing. Absolutely beautiful!

    You never cease to impress man! I absolutely love your rides, they are top quality, and this is no exception.

    I especially love the layout.

    Keep up the fantastic work.

    I for one can't see the seams on the box...

    The supports are ultra funky (that's a good thing)

    I couldn't see the box until Archy pointed it out. It doesn't make or break your rating IMO

    Many things are invisible to the untrained eye. But of course it wont affect the rating.

    Thanks for the comments guys! Some of you have a really great eye as I didn't even notice the corners of the sky-box until y'all mentioned it. I'm using Dave's "Cumulus Blue 3" env and think I'll keep it for this coaster. His env seems to compliment the ride pretty well(thanks again Dave!)

    Posted By: baadrixis the track slightly blue or does it look like this for me because of the blue sky, supports and trains? ;)

    It's actually a bright white color, but the env makes it look slightly blue in certain angles.

    I've been so swamped with school lately but did have a chance to work on the supports over the weekend:

    Looking really good, as usual!

    woooh! Supports are almost done! Can't wait for you to finish this one.

    You give me a really hard time to think of appropriate expressions of how awesome this looks. ;)

    Although the track seems to be finished (as well as the supports) I bet you gonna add "some" paths and other attractions.

    Thanks guys! Glad y'all like it.

    The supports are pretty much finished. All that's left to do is the loop, transfer track, and a couple of other small sections. For the station - I'm thinking about making it into an airplane hangar with a little control tower on top. Nothing too fancy though.

    Love the layout <3

    The supports are amazing, really great work on them! :D

    Btw, I just noticed the very last turn looks very tight, but I'm pretty sure you double-checked there's enough space for the riders. ;)

    No worries - I'll fix that when I work on the transfer track.

    Update March 26, 2013
    Progress on the station, queue, and entry plaza.

    That is so cool! I feel like if there were any flaws I wouldn't see them because everything else looks so amazing. I also feel like this sentence is a paradox.

    I've been so busy with school over the past couple of weeks, but did have a chance to work on the surrounding "amusement park" over the weekend.

    I've still been working on this here and there for the past month. Kind of lost interest towards the end of the school semester - so hopefully I'll be more motivated now that school's out.

    Holy sh*t man! That first shot is fantastic, it could have been a perfect ride upload picture as it shows a lot of track and beautiful scenery at once. Good work.

    The whole setting looks really realistic, when looking at these pictures it feels just like watching a coaster IRL (of course not in terms of graphical quality) - awesome!

    Very nice - your rides are always quite clean and well-done. I like the theme you've chosen, and it seems to be fitting together perfectly. My only concern is that there might be a tiny bit too much blue in the scene - almost everything except trees and grass is blue.

    But seriously, this is fantastic, and it's even more fantastic considering it's built only of supports. :D Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the comments everyone! Much appreciated.

    Another small update:
    Worked on the buildings across from the ride (definitely not final...but gives an idea of what I'm aiming for)
    panorama (2)

    Intamin Invert Launch2-130613210621000

    I changed the path underneath the launch from the blue support color to a dark grey so it doesn't blend in with the supports so much.

    Easily the most photogenic ride I think I've ever seen, and the layout is just pure genius.
