Re: Pics of the new Fastest/Highest Rollercoaster in the world.

Anybody rode the Texas Tornado at Astroworld? That thing does like 90mph on the drop and you are dangling from the bottom of it. Then it does the loop on the outside. Pretty wild.... only problem is it is such a short ride. :eh:

dude i think you are confusing Taz's Texas Tornado (which was hardly ever open...and no longer there) with Serial Thriller...the tornado was a regular coaster car that had 3 loop (which moved too much, hince the reason its not there) and was across from tidal wave...serial thriller is red, hangs and can be seen from 610...and yes it is too short

Re: Pics of the new Fastest/Highest Rollercoaster in the world.

i went there a couple years back. that park is awesome. the scream machine is already one of the best coasters ive ever ridden you go upsidedown 8 times. That new coaster looks even better. If you like coasters and dont want to travel that far try Six Flags Over Texas in Fort Worth. I went there this week and its a million times better then AStroWorld.

Yea, on the cyclone the cars don't have wheels on several sides of a steel tube, like Batman, Serial Thriller, etc.... The weight of the "train" is what keeps it on the track, but riding at the back, you get pulled over the top of the crests faster, because the weight of the train is already accelerating the train down the hill. Which can cause the last two cars of the train to actually come off the track, as they crest the hills. Which means you get thrown around the seat alot more.

Yeah Thriller is the one where you hang. And no that wasnt the reason why they took Taz down. I spoke w/the park when they first took it down cuz I worked there for a day or so for a fundraiser I did back in high school. Taz was bought from the europeans and therefore was designed under europeans standards, measurements, elevations, climate, etc. Well when they brought it over here the elevation change and the different climate upset the way the coaster was designed and quickly deteriorated it. After about 2 yrs or so they started havin problems w/brakes and mechanisms that were on the rollercoaster and it was having difficulty goin through the loops and running its normal track. They tried fixin and even thought about redesigning it but it was gonna cost too much money so they decided to get rid of it instead and put something different in its place. right:

Re: Pics of the new Fastest/Highest Rollercoaster in the world.

yep -- SWAT is there now and that ride is crazy. I rode it last week.

So is that roller coaster for real? I don't believe 0 - 120 in 3 seconds.
