New for 2011: Raptor at Gardaland

Postby DorneyMan88 » Thu Feb 03, 2011 1:13 am

I thought we had a topic on this already but I guess not.

Most people have known about this project for some time, finally we have some pictures of the trains being unloaded: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/vi ... &start=510

As an awesome added bonus in my opinion, http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/vi ... &start=520 . The picture clearly shows that the restraint system will be like those used on B&M's flying coasters, one of my favorite restraint systems. I am unsure if the ankle restraints like on the flying coasters will be present or not, although if they were that would be a good way to prevent those from sitting on the inner seat from getting their legs too close to the track.

Looks incredible, I hope a US park gets one, like, yesterday.

Hershey, are you listening? If you wised up and decided to go with B&M for your 2012 project, a Hyper, Dive Machine, and especially this would all be amazing choices!

That looks really exciting. I wish I could make a trip to Europe just to see some theme parks but like everyone, that is not in the cards for me. Still, it was very cool to see :)
2015... My year off from Dorney. C'mon Cedar Fair, you are losing me...

One day I want to get to Europe and Japan and get to some of the parks out there. There are so many cool looking coasters I'll likely never get a chance to try.
