    I just want this ride to hug the terrain as much as possible, and hopefully have a tunnel. Basically The Beast but at 90+ Mph and only a minute long. While length is important, I’d rather have this than an awkwardly tall MCBR with nothing but filler afterwards.

    The problem is the scale on the sheets title says 1”=20’, but the legend ruler shows 1”=10’. Both can’t be true, and my guess is that the title one is true because the little ruler just got copy and pasted from a different sheet, where title is specific to that page.

    This guy or gal used Bluebeam, and yes it has a measuring tool based off an initial calibration.

    This is unfortunately not true. Source, am architect.

    Keep in mind the terrain too, even if the lid hill is identical height to Fury, the drop could be 30’ or more longer due to the natural ravine. Let’s not panic for no reason. If it doesn’t go upside down, and it’s not over 300’ tall, it would just be a clone of Diamondback. Why would KI do that, let’s wait and see.

    PM me too! All I have seen is photos of paper, and just because the scale is depicted doesn’t mean it was printed ‘to scale’. Any time a document is forced to a printer’s paper size it immediately messes up the scale. These could be half size drawings or just printed to fit 11x17 paper.
  7. Based on this teaser I'm thinking the name will be Stampede. something like that that would help bring it into the western theme of frontier town too.
  8. Automatic fire suppression sprinklers for the station? It is wood construction after all
  9. Those plans show what looks like a good amount of theming along the queue which wouldl be great. Does it seam weird that the exit just dumps onto the train platform or am I looking at that wrong?
  10. I think they were asking why they aren't setting post holders into the concrete as opposed to drilling or lag bolting into hard concrete later on... Same strength either way it's just a matter of labor now or labor later, do you want to pay the concrete guys or the carpenters.
  11. Does Firehawk classify as a 'steal' coaster? Though it has been said already, thanks Magenta Lizard for your great pictures!
  12. My prediction is that Splintercat will be the new Mustang. People were pretty sure about that one too.

  14. Agreed, footing depth has more to do with soil type and quality in the geotech report. If you built a small kiddie coaster in a swamp vs a tall ride on bedrock, the kiddie coaster would probably have larger footings due to the soil conditions.
  15. At the very least the plans for the station, queue, maintenance building etc would need to be submitted for a building permit. Ensuring these adhere to building codes, accessibility codes etc would all be required. Also I'm not sure about the ride itself, but being wood makes it more flammable and therefore might require more stringent codes.
