Damn, that’s tall.
Not tall enough it’s got another support to go after that
SIAP, but is anyone else worried that hurricanes might affect this coaster? I'm not quite sure why they repealed the 200 feet law, but I have my suspicions...
I'm sure they already thought about hurricanes long, long ago. Just like how Steel Vengeance/Mean Streak was built with tension cables to protect itself against high winds.
I believe these new concrete footers are for tension cables, actually.
They will definitely make sure they can survive a hurricane given the location in Florida.
Moat coaster seem to be built from now until summer, I wonder if avoiding hurricanes are part of the timeline.
Well they are built now until summer so they are ready for the summer season which is when parks get their most attendance.
True but I'm sure this is an added benefit. The last thing they want is a repeat of what happened to Zadra:
"Zadra" at Energylandia Collapses Under High Winds - AmusementInsider | The Front Page of Theme Parks
Yeah that would be pretty bad :3
I'm just over here trying to figure out, what 200' law? LOL. Falcon's Fury is 335 feet and opened in 2014.
They are definitely required to make sure it will withstand a moderate hurricane at least, just as all buildings are generally required to do like this. There's a reason most of the original structure was replaced as it wasn't suitable for continued use. As long as they properly maintain the structure, there shouldn't be any issues long term in regards to storms.
As far as height, anything 200' or over must get a waiver from the FAA. If there are any other specific height limits based on ordinance, even those can get a variance to allow it to build based on jurisdiction.
An open structure like a coaster actually has little wind resistance. Withstanding storms shouldn't be a problem.
Iron Gwazi Weekly(ish) Aerial Update: 11/17/19 *LOW ANGLE* : rollercoasters
1. The coaster enters the stall rotating counter clockwise rather than clockwise as shown in the animation
2. The tallest of the supports is about 50% up so I'm guessing the lift will be complete by sometime this week.
3. The brake run was shown above the death roll valley in the animation but clearly you'll hit the brake much lower than they show.
4. Really hoping this means that there's been some amendments to the end of the ride. This coaster really should be hitting the brake run with a bang.
The tallest lift hill support hasn't started construction yet.
Oh no it has. You can faintly see it in front of the death roll, almost the same height.
Dat natural wood color scheme doh
It do be lookin kinda clean doe
Via instagram, big announcement tomorrow maybe a POV or the trains at IIAPA
