    ^ Aww thank you, glad you appreciate it!

    -

    Creosens is a french engineering company, and they made a coaster product shaped like an extreme zip-line:



    They aim for inversions, lie-down and flying position, 4g, etc. Their target isn't really amusement parks, but rather malls, cruise ships, or other unusual places like cliff sides.

    The concepts are a bit over the top, but they are serious about it. In fact, they developed in-house they own coaster design software, and it looks like a cross between NoLimits 2 and FVD++!




    (clearance envelop... *drool*)

    You can have either geometric input by moving the nodes, or a force-vector design input (*drool*x2):


    (It's a short video, so Right click -> Show controls -> Play)

    They are currently building a prototype. However, the car has still to be designed.

    a coaster i saw the plans for once in a quick snaphot on a video was the "bigger one" at blackpool pleasurebeach, the video nolonger exists and even then it had a pixilated rendering of what it could be but it was a 500ft launch coaster going out over the sea in what looked like a huge immelman or diveloop. i did try to recreate it in NL1 called XL-500 it does have a thread on here somewhere, if anyone can find anything on this it would be amazing!!!

    Your ride is still up on the exchange, but I didn't find any thread.

    So this was a real concept Blackpool did envisioned? Crazy.

    yeah the concept wasnt like the one i made, it looked like it was all in one line, no turn around back into the station, the track went out up and theback under itself, so maybe the plan was for a 4D type thing? the supports were very wide looking as if it would accommodate a wing rider of some sorts.

    they then went looking at a top hat style the footers for a strata coaster bigger than kingda ka are still out on the beach you can see it on google earth

    This intrigued me, so I went looking for some articles or some info related to it just to check if it was real. Turns out, it was

    Shame the video doesn't exist anymore

    Neat B&M technical drawing displayed at Walygator. Thanks touffman for providing the pictures.

    A wheel:



    A cross section of a track:



    The lift hill and supports:



    So much infos here:

    - Pre-lift lenght: 6,80m
    - Lift angle: 26°
    - Track radius at bottom: 6m
    - Track radius at the top: 14m
    - Pre-drop angle : 26°(?)
    - Average support span : 10m

    Right click -> Open in a new tab to have a full size version of the pictures.

    I know right, pretty frustrating isn't it. These drawingsq are part of a museum about the history, past and present attractions of Walygator. I guess it's a "theming element", it seems screwed-in position...
  5.  
    Why the question mark after 26*? Look at the angle in the picture too, it's the same as that of the ascent. Makes sense to me.

    ^ I guess so, but since we can't read it I wasn't entierly sure about that.

    Have you any idea why the radius for the predrop is marked as R 11450+2550 instead of R 14000 ?

  6.  
    Perhaps to include the radius of the catwalks?

    Oh, I thought those were stats listed somewhere and you were questioning them even though the picture seems to support them lol. I see now. Carry on :D

    I've posted about this before, but in the original plans/models for PortAventura, Dragon Khan was originally intended to be an Arrow looper with interlocking loops
