  1. Actually, every lead axle is extremely heavy to make up for the weight that is not there. Without that weight, the axle could not effectively steer the train and would slip. There are two axles in the 'zero car'. The front axle can roll while the rear axle I believe helps turn the train. The other cars on the train can roll, pitch, and yaw. Which is pretty much the ability to rotate along the Z-axis(longitudinal axis), X-axis(rotation on lateral axis),and Y -axis(rotation on vertical axis) . May sound a little crazy... lol.
  2. I went Friday from three to close, and all day yesterday and only noticed one ride down. Delirium was down for about an hour or so. Other than that, everything seemed to operate normal.
  3. The other runs a huge internet site with a club attached, and makes bigtime money on his trips. And he has the maturity of a 13 year old. Which is really sad, lol.

  6. Japanese high speed rail train.

  11. There is a reason for everything. That reason is unknown, and the people who do know... will not share.
  12. IDK to me sob seems fragile. On the dip right before the big drop ever see it flex? I can see it from the parking lot. I know its supposed to do it but it just makes it seem fragile to me. I'm guessing you haven't seen Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta. That sway is nothing compared to Son of Beast's.
  13. To my knowledge, Will Koch did not want Voyage to have a loop in it. If he had, and Gravity Group would not do it, knowing Will Koch, he would have found someone who would have done it... I trust you, just thought someone had found an article in German, and when translated into English it talked about how the Voyage at Holiday World was designed to have a loop in it, after President Will Koch rode Son of Beast and thought they could do better. http://www.coastersa...ge/voyage.shtml Site has some cool pictures! It's a good article, might wanna translate it and read through it. Transl
