Invertigo. Inverted Vertigo…

For our 3rd Throwback Thursday we have Invertigo.

Invertigo is a suspended Vekoma Boomerang Model (Vertigo) having riders sit with their backs to one another facing the other riders at the same time. Invertigo looks like the regular Boomerang models when looking at the track layout. The only differences are in the train hanging under the track, the height, and the looping exits on the opposite side.

ICGA2

Invertigo was located next to the park’s first woodie, Grizzly, and has had some operational errors making people believe that’s one of the main reasons the ride was closed and left. Invertigo was blue(supports) with yellow(track). The top speed of this machine was 50 MPH, and it stood a 131 ft. tall. The ride went through the Cobraroll and Looping both forwards and backwards (like every other boomerang model similar to this from Vekoma). The coaster is known for being powerful as the train isn’t only suspended but also has a max. amount of G’s of 5. The ride’s duration is about 1:30 minutes.

Invertigo-Front

Invertigo came to California’s Great America in 1998, and closed at the end of the 2010 season. Invertigo is now located in Dorney Park, and is renamed and re-colored to become Stinger.Stinger_HomepageSlider

Disney Ride Has Riders Screamin’

CaliforniaScreamin1
Screamin’s launch over the water and into 1 of its 3 scream tubes.

The opening of Disney’s California Adventure in February of 2001 brought the Disneyland Resort’s first coaster with an inversion, California Screamin’.  The rides top speed is 55 mph, making it the fastest coaster at the Disneyland Resort.  The ride was designed by Walt Disney Imagineers and built by Intamin.  It is the 8th longest coaster in the world, and 4th longest in the USA.  It is also the longest coaster with an inversion since Son of Beast closed in 2012.

CaliforniaScreamin7
Screamin’s loop, which forms the head of Disney’s famous Mickey Mouse Ears.

Although the ride is steel, it is built to resemble a wooden boardwalk coaster.  In 2010, the ride recorded safety spiels and a launch count down with Neil Patrick Harris.  In 2007,  the ride added a new onboard soundtrack to both Screamin’ and Space Mountain by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.  A train departs every 36 seconds, and there are up to 5 trains operating at a time.  The ride is 108 ft tall, has 1 inversion (verticle loop), and reaches a top speed of 55 mph through 6,072 ft of track.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

    California Coaster Kings went to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom on July 5th for a park walk- through and update. Below you’ll see pictures with captions giving you the most up-to-date info. 

SFDKPM
Here is the park’s official parkmap. We didn’t get to get pictures from everything in the park, since the camera battery died.

20130705_16071120130705_16070520130705_15365420130705_15321220130705_16295320130705_16070520130705_160711

Cirque Dreams Splashtastic is one of the greatest shows we’ve ever seen. It is very creative, and impressive. The crowd is constantly entertained, and the acrobats get as much attention as the dolphins. This all means that every single thing going on is perfectly balanced out, and this all happens with a great mix of music and other effects, such as lights and water/fountains. If you have a chance to see it, make sure you check it out.

20130705_151943

Monsoon Falls (seen above) is a boat ride that tricked us. It looks like Tidal Wave from Six Flags Magic Mountain, but this water ride gets you very wet.  It is nice on a hot day, but we warn you, don’t ride it at night.

20130705_151929

One of the kiddie areas is Looney Tunes Sea-Port.

20130705_151821 20130705_151818 20130705_151804 20130705_151754

Seen above is one of the animal exhibits. Seal Cove is a viewing area where guests can observe seals and sea lions, or feed them. ($5 for 3 fish).

20130705_151725

Seen above is the Sea Lion Stadium where a pirate themed show takes place several times a day.– Below you’ll see another animal exhibit. Penguin Passage is the penguin habitat close to V2 and Roar, and across from Seal Cove.

20130705_151716 20130705_151709

Below you’ll see a picture (more pictures later on in this update) from a Dolphin Pool where guests can take pictures with them or feed them. Sometimes overload crowds for the Dolphin Discovery (Swim with dolphins program) do activities in here. Guests can stand to the side and watch the dolphins swim by or see them play, but the park employees will clearly state that it is NOT a touch pool.

20130705_151621

On the plaza behind the dolphin pool, you’ll see V2, Superman: Ultimate Flight, and Roar. (Roar Plaza)

20130705_151415

V2 stands for Vertical Velocity and is a 150 ft. tall Intamin Inverted Impulse Coaster. This V2 model is unique since it got altered from the original design due to city limits. The tower is now 45’degrees meaning that the upwards spiral is now an inversion, making this the only V2 that inverts.

20130705_151353 20130705_151340

Below you’ll see pictures from Superman: Ultimate Flight. Superman Ultimate flight is a unique triple launch coaster with the world’s highest (complete) barrel-roll at 150 ft. The ride also travels forwards and backwards through the non-inverted loop, and has two 90’degrees steep 180’degrees twists. This really offers a unique ride experience so check it out when you have a chance to.

20130705_151145 20130705_151127

Below you’ll also see pictures from Roar.  Roar is the first wooden roller-coaster to use millennium flyer trains, allowing it to do nice twists and fast turns. It’s 95 ft tall and has a drop of about 85 ft. reaching speeds up to 51 MPH. It’s a fun ride, and is smoother than most other woodies out there, even though the 2 other CA GCIs (Apocalypse and Goldstriker) tend to be smoother.

20130705_150933 20130705_151056 20130705_150228 20130705_150222 20130705_150219 20130705_145945

Below you’ll see pictures from the Dolphin Discovery (Dolphin pool), and the Wave Jumper, which corresponded to the park’s former killer whale, Shouka. (1st pic is the view of the plaza from the dolphin pool)

20130705_145718 20130705_145807 20130705_145927 20130705_145635 20130705_145631 20130705_145626 20130705_145541

The park is a pretty sight as it is clearly divided up into different plazas, having all the big rides in the front side of the park, making it quiet and peaceful in the back where the lake is, and where the animal exhibits and habitats are. (sorry we have no pics of those since the camera died on the trip)

20130705_145405 20130705_145433 20130705_145438 20130705_145515 20130705_145343 20130705_145331

In the stadiums they sell popcorn and cotton candy, as well as some other products. Below you’ll also see a picture of the newly renovated Toyota Stadium, which used to be Shouka Stadium when they still had the killer whale. The new renovation did the stadium good, and the new dolphin show, Drench!, is a nice addition to the parks show line-up. It is a good show for young and old, and they use many more dolphins at the same time than the old show used to have. Also the show features the most up to date pop music, making it an energetic and fun experience.

20130705_143642  20130705_143356

On the back side of the park, before the animal exhibits and habitats, you will find Tasmanian Devil, a frisbee from Huss, Sky Coaster, the Ark (Swinging ship), Scrambler, Bird Theater, Crocodile Island, Voodoo (Huss Topspin) and Boomerang Coast to Coaster.

20130705_135059 20130705_135050

Below you’ll see pictures from the Oasis Plaza, the plaza where Medusa, Cobra, Kong, and Sky Screamer are located.

20130705_135044 20130705_134632 20130705_134621 20130705_134604 20130705_134501 20130705_134508 20130705_134514 20130705_134554

Kong is a Vekoma SLC standard, and has 2 trains, one yellow one red/orange. When CCK was there there were no lines, and we want to recognize the Kong-crew of the 5th of July, because they did an outstanding job with the operations, dispatch in no time, helpful and very sincere. Really enjoyed that. We know Kong is an SLC, and that many people think it’s too shaky, but CCK has been on many more SLCs in the world, and Kong is actually a really good one, CCK really enjoyed their rides on Kong, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is taking good care of it. Kong stands 110 ft. tall and reaches speeds of 50 MPH. It has 5 inversions, including a roll-over, a sidewinder, and a double in-line-twist.

20130705_134435 20130705_134422 20130705_134332

Medusa is a 150 ft. tall B&M Floorless-coaster with a 128 ft. tall vertical loop, immelman, zero-g-roll, sea serpent roll, and 2 corkscrews. It’s probably the park’s most popular coaster if not shared with S:UF.

20130705_134232 20130705_134248

Kong is nicely located. From where ever you come, you can see the amazing SLC go. Neat look if you ask us.

Tomorrow Tuesday #2: BRC’s Comet Weightless Coaster

Starting in september of 2012, BRC design corporation in Southern California began designing a ride in which riders experience almost 8 seconds of weightlessness.  This ride would be based off of a NASA invention known by astronaut trainees as “the vomit comet”.  The original NASA invention takes astronauts into an aircraft that does multiple take off and landing camel backs that create up to 25 seconds of weightlessness.

This is the original model for the vehicle for The Comet.

zerogravitycoaster_large_verge_medium_landscape
The original drawn out model of the ride by BRC.

The ride designed by BRC, known simply as Comet, would have a somewhat simpler design, similar to Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Superman: Escape from Krypton.  The only major difference would be completely enclosed in a rocket shaped vehicle.  This way, there could be less restraint, leading to riders actually feeling weightless.  The ride would launch riders at a 400 ft tower, but once it reaches its top speed of 105 mph, it begins to decrease its speed, so riders feel the sensation of actually floating out of their seat for almost 8 seconds.  The ride would cost an estimated 50 million dollars to build, and would take about a year of construction.  Riders would enter the craft through winged doors and sit down in one of the 16 seats per car (6 rows of 2 and 1 of 4).  The restraint would only be a lap belt, similar to what most airlines use, but without a fastening feature, so riders can actually experience floating out of their seats.  Also, each seat would include its very own science kit containing either a glass of water, a ball, or a gyroscope, so riders could see how these items change properties.  The ride would also be equipped with vomit drains, and showers to hose off if you “loose your lunch” during the ride.  Unfortunately however, we may not see this ride for a while, due to its high price, 20 million dollars more than the average roller coaster.

Six Flags Similarities!

Today’s Six Flags Monday will have a special theme, Six Flags Similarities.

Below we will show two interactive lists where California Coaster Kings compares coasters from CA Six Flags Parks to coasters that are similar elsewhere in the world. AND we have a list comparing coasters from the 2 CA Six Flags parks only.

Let’s start finding some similarities in our very own CA Six Flags parks.

  • SCREAM! and MEDUSA. imageBoth parks are home to a B&M Floorless Coaster. Six Flags Magic Mountain has Scream! and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has Medusa. Both rides have similar elements, and are both 150ft high. Both have a 128 ft. high loop, right after their first drops. Both of them have an immelman/dive loop after that, and then both coasters have a zero-G-roll after that. But then both rides are totally different. Scream! has a Cobra Roll, and Medusa has a roll-over/sea-serpent roll. Scream! is a mirror edition of Bizarro at SFGAdv, and Medusa is custom designed. For an awesome SPLITSCREEN video of Scream! and Medusa, click here, and decide which one you think is better/ more unique!
  • Road Runner Express, and Road Runner Express.image_7 Both our CA Six Flags Parks have a kiddie-rollercoaster named Road Runner Express. The one at Six Flags Magic Mountain is a Vekoma Junior Coaster (207m), and is painted red(track) and black(supports). The other one, at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is a Zamperla Family Gravity Coaster 80STD, and is blue. There are  total of 3 kiddie-coaster that are currently named Road Runner Express. (The 3rd one is BIG and is to be found at SFFT)
  • ROAR and APOCALYPSE.image_5 Although they don’t share a similar track layout or name, they do have a lot of things in common. Six Flags Magic Mountain has Apocalypse, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has Roar. Roar was the first rollercoaster to feature Millennium Flyer trains (which apocalypse has too), and is longer. But Apocalypse and Roar are both 95 ft. high, both have a drop that is around 85 ft. tall, and both reach speeds of almost 51 MPH.

Let’s find some similarities between CA Six Flags Coasters and other coasters worldwide.

  • Goliath and Titan.image_4 Both Titan (Six Flags Over Texas) and Goliath (Six Flags Magic Mountain) have a 255 ft drop into a 120 ft. long underground-tunnel. Both reach the speed of 85 MPH while in the tunnel, and share a color scheme, orange (Track) and aqua (supports). Both these coasters are Mega Coasters from Giovanola, and have a drop angle of 61′. The difference in these rides are to be found right before the first brake-run. Goliath opened in 2000, and simply turns upward towards the brake-run. Titan on the other hand is considered the brother of Goliath and opened a year later, in 2001, with an upward-helix before the first brake run. Other than the support structure both rides are almost the excact same after the brake-run.For a SPLITSCREEN video of Goliath and Titan, click here, and notice the differences as well as the similarities.
  • X2 and Eejanaika.image_1 Both Eejanaika and X2 are 4D coasters. (Six Flags Magic Mountain catagorizes X2 as 5D because of the fire, audio, and lightning effects) X2 is the world’s first 4D coaster and started it’s life as X. X was made by Arrow Dynamics, which went bankrupt after X. S&S bought Arrow Dynamics and built the second 4D of that kind in 2006, 6 years after the original got built. X closed in 2007without announcement and got refurbished to become X2 with new trains that were lighter and special effects. This was due to the fact that the old trains were 5 times as heavy as the SFMM Goliath trains, and the park needed to replace about 18  wheels a day, making it an extremely expensive rollercoaster to operate. The track layouts of X2 and Eejanaika are pretty similar although there are more differences than most people expect. Eejanaika has: Inside Raven Turn->Zero-G Roll->Fly To Lie->Outside Raven Turn->Fly To Lie. As where X2 has: Inside Raven Turn-> Fly to Lie->Outside Raven Turn->Fly to Lie. There are lots of differences between these 2 world famous rollercoasters so please click here for a video of X2, and click here for a video of Eejanaika. For more information about the differences, please click on the names of the rides on top (links).
  • Roar and Roar. image_2Both track-layouts are almost the excact same, but Roar from Six Flags America is longer due to the wider turns. Roar at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is a bit shorter because the turns are narrower, this is possible because of the millenium flyer trains this Roar uses. (Roar at SFDK was the first RC to use MF trains) Both Roars have the same track layout except the station and transfer tracks are located differently. Both rides are 95 ft. tall and have the same 85ft. tall drop. They both reach speeds upto 51 MPH, and have a max. of 3.5 G’s.
  • Batman: The Ride and Batman: The Ride (and more Batman: The Rides + Goliath (SFFT)).image_3The Batman clones were the first inverted coasters and the first one opened in 1991 at Six Flags Great America. The CA Batman is at Magic Mountain. Ever since many have been built. There is mirror clone of this too which came from Thrill Valley to SF New Orleans, and is currently located in Six Flags Fiesta Texas and is named Goliath. All of these clones are 105 ft high and start with a twisted drop into a 88 ft. tall loop, followed by a zero-G-roll into another loop, and then the ride does some twists and turns into 2 corkscrews. All Batmans have a ride length of 2,700 ft., a ride duration of 2:00 minutes, a max. speed of 50 MPH, and max. of 4 G’s. To see SPLITSCREEN of Batman at Six Flags Magic Mountain, and Goliath at Six Flags Fiesta Texas click here
  • V2 and V2.image_6 Both V2s stand for Vertical Velocity. Both opened as the same model, but due to the city height limit in Vallejo, V2 at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom had to be altered and the upwards twist had to be slanted 45 degrees down, making it an inversion. The tower on the back side was simply lowered to a height of 150 ft. The V2 at Six Flags Great America is still the way it was meant to be at first and is a 185 ft. tall while twisting vertically, the top speed is 70 MPH, as where the one in Discovery Kingdom is 65 MPH. They both had the same colors originally, but the V2 at SFDK got repainted red (track) and purple/maroon (supports).

 

Special Saturday-Walk-through of Castle Park. Riverside, CA

IMG_20130629_142615_570[1]
The park has an indoor-carousel.
 Castle Amusement Park is a medieval castle themed amusement park in Riverside, CA.  The park features a miniature golf course complex, an arcade, and 21 different carnival-like rides. Some of these rides include Screamin’ Demon, a spinning wild mouse coaster, Dragon Tower, one of the smallest S&S launch towers leading to crazy ejector air time, and its featured coaster Merlin’s Revenge. The park also features an interactive dark ride called Ghost Blasters designed by Sally Corporation, who’s rides can be found across America. The park’s creator Bud Hurlbut designed several Knott’s Berry Farm rides such as Timber Mountain Log Ride. The park is now owned by Palace Entertainment.

This Ride Got Jammed

 

jammer02

On March 26, 1997, Knott’s Berry Farm opened Windjammer Surf Racers.  The ride had two indepedent tracks, that raced each other. The park used wild mouse like trains, but a full length track. Many people complained of headaches due to the fact that the rides over the shoulder harnesses had no padding.

jammer09

The ride was themed to represent the southern california coastal lifestyle, complete with sand, palm trees, a life gaurd tower, and a mini lagoon. The photo booth for on ride pictures was inside a yacht.

KBFwindjammer2-big

The ride had many technical problems and shortly after opening, and just weeks into operation, it broke down and Knott’s had to pay over 2 million dollars on repairs. In retaliation, Knotts sued TOGO, the ride’s manufacturer for 17 million dollars, claiming design flaws such as missaligned track, as well as problems of stalling in even slight breezes, which the park claimed to be a “joke”.

KBFWindjammerArt

Knotts lost the law suit, but it was such a publicity nightmare for TOGO, that it forced them to go out of buisiness. After spending 4 years to find a buyer for the coaster, with no luck, thepark dismantled it in 2001.

lbp_ifmm6

The ride began with a 69 foot drop into a vertical loop at 40 miles per hour. After this, the tracks winded around each other and up and down small hills until it came to a stop.

A year after the closing of this ride, Xcelerator was built in the same spot, giving Knott’s fans an all new coaster experience that you couldn’t experience anywhere else, since it was the first Intamin Accelerator Coaster.

Spending A Night In A Dream…

IF

In the early 1960’s, Walt Disney decided he needed a larger area in the park to host guests and VIP’s.  He originally hosted all of his guests in his apartment built on the second floor of the Main Street Fire Station, but that was to small, so during the construction of New Orleans Square, it was placed on the second story of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride building, to resemble a building on New Orleans’s Royal Street.

dds

 

The suite was to be designed by Dorothea Redmond, the designer of the sets of the classic movie, Gone with the Wind. Unfortunately, Walt died in 1966, before its completion, and his brother Roy changed it into the Disney art gallery from 1987-2007.

250px-Disneyland-Gallerysign

In September of 2007, Walt Disney company announced the the Disney Gallery would be closed and replaced with the Disneyland Dream Suite. Disney Imagineers worked very hard to build this from Mrs. Redmond’s original design. The suite is stayed in by either Disney contest winners, or the grand marshal for the Disneyland parades for the week.  The suite is 2200 square feet and has a living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and an open air balcony which gives an unobstructed view of the parks night time spectacular Fantasmic.

There are now dream suites in Disneyland and Disney world at Pirates of the Caribbean, the Main Street Firehouse, and at Cinderella’s Castle, as well as on Disney Cruise Ships.

Gilroy Gardens: Smelling like a rose…

Although Gilroy is known for its garlic growing, the amusement park is sweet.

gg2

Gilroy Gardens was founded by Michael and Claudia Bonfante after selling their Nob Hill Foods supermarket chain to build the park. The park was constructed gradually over a period of 25 years. Before it became an amusement park open to the public, it was known as Tree Haven, and was a commercial plant nursery, as well as a recreational facility for employees of Nob Hill Foods. The park opened to the public in June 2001 as Bonfante Gardens. The name was changed to Gilroy Gardens in February 2007. It features 19 rides, 27 attractions and six gardens.

GG1

The park struggled with financial difficulty and low attendance the first two years it was open. It closed early for its first two seasons and the park’s management debated whether to open at all for the third season. Paramount Parks began to manage the park on contract starting with the 2003 season.

Gilroy Gardens now operates under the management of Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, which acquired Paramount Parks from CBS Corporation on June 30, 2006.
