It’s more about speed than height. Maverick isn’t tall but they trim you literally a second after that launch tunnel.Slightly off topic. . . I feel parks are building these coasters too tall for no reason. It's all aesthetics to me. Take, for instance, Lighting run at Kentucky kingdom. That coaster is barely 100ft tall but still manages to have an 80 degree drop AND a crap load of OMFG ejector air and not ONE trim. Personally, if a coaster has to be trimmed, just make don't make it as tall.
Yes, I have ridden The Beast many times and the trims are unfortunate. That is one of my favorite coasters. But one day, for whatever reason, they did not trim and it was the most exciting ride ever. So they must trim in an over abundance of caution and not necessity.The Beast: Trims in a couple places needlessly. Kills pacing in a couple places but might save lives (slight exaggeration).
Kentucky Kingdom is my home park. And for a small coaster, Lightning Run can't be beat. It is true, NO trims. Nothing but full speed from start to finish, and it is very exhilarating!!Take, for instance, Lighting run at Kentucky kingdom. That coaster is barely 100ft tall but still manages to have an 80 degree drop AND a crap load of OMFG ejector air and not ONE trim.
The news we've been waiting for. Interested to see how fast they mask that wall, because it could provide a further clue into their overall theming plans.
