That's shocking. Actually, must be after the 300th episode.

I'd like to see a giga with an inversion. Maybe later in  the ride after a MCBR.

 

Its really the perfect sport for the gig. Plus they can show some love to X-Base.

 

Ahh Sorry for the double post. I got confused.

I am guessing if they go B&M they will have a MCBR for capacity.

Side note: Unless the train needs stopped due to blocking, why do they need to stop/slow you there? I have never understood that.

the b&m or Intamin gigas haven't used a mcbr.  The B&m takes years to climb the lift while the CP intamin has a dual load/unload and I305 only runs 2 trains.

I agree with your second part.  The best b&m hyper is goliath @ sfOg cause it does not have one.  All the others ruin the 2nd half.

I was not that impressed with Goliath at Six Flags over Georgia.  I personally do not mind mid course brake runs.

I was stating if a giga had an inversion it can't be going 90+ mph. They would need it to be slowed. After that the train can be launched to pick speed back up. We could get launched giga coaster with an inversion!! haha

A giga does not need a mid course break run to run 3 trains. Look at Fury and Leviathan. They are so long and it takes a bit to climb the lift hill so it doesn't need a MCBR.

Remember several months ago we talked about to not remove those maintenance facilities, but good idea though even though it's a mirrored Fury 325.  At least we have the idea. The real one would probably have a similar layout to Fury, plus adding new elements.

I know a gig does not need a MCBR. Ya'll are missing my point here. They would most likely need one if there was ever a gig with an inversion. That's what my point is.

What kind of inversion would everyone like to see of it were to happen? My personal favorites are corkscrews and inline twists

I may take heat for this but an element like the twisted horseshow roll would be awesome on a larger scale then Maverick's. After the inversion.....LAUNCH!!!!!!

The B&M Giga's (Leviathan and Fury 325) have exceptionally long brake sections. Thus, removing the need for a mid course. 

I wouldn't say it would need a MCBR for an inversion...if anything, trims could be used..but these companies as they design the rides have the ability to design where a natural slow down could occur for said inversion.

Yeah I was thinking after going up hill when the train slows that could work as well. Trim yeah there are many options. I just always think of how slow Vortex gets before the corkscrews haha.

If its a b&m its guaranteed to have a trim:ph34r:

Banshee is a good example. Really long brake section, and no MCBR.

Just saying though if there was ever a giga that had a total inversion there would need to be some point to slow the train. It could be many of things. MCBR, Trim or natural slowing by a hill. I understand that a coaster doesn't need slowed if there is a long break section or a slow hill. This was just for an inversion on a giga. Be my gust if you wanna go 90 mph and do a barrel roll lol

Maybe I'm different, but trims don't bother me...

Don't you ever wonder what could have been with that airtime hill before the camera on diamondstack?

i can do without a gimmick inversion on a giga.  There would be a variation on the open air trains.

No because I'm not that dense. I enjoy things for what they are.

I mean that's fine. This is a speculation thread that's gone down rabbit hole after rabbit hole. A conversation about different ideas  that could be used on the KI giga ( whenever that happens, If ever).  CF is all about records. They could own the first ever giga with an inversion and first ever giga with a launch! IMO that sounds awesome.
