That looks cool. I think the coaster expirience with the dark ride will be a good mix! And if Moher-Saruhn's (yeah spelling I know) coasters are anything like Gershlauter's, it'll be a fun little coaster as well.
Where are they planning to put the dark ride scenes?
What I don't get is if the coaster part will be covered up. Will it be housed in a Studio building or will the coaster part be outside? Concept art isn't really clear.
I'm pretty sure the dark ride is before the lift and the ride will be inclosed.
Any body have a link to the concept art?
I think that it was supposed to be completely enclosed (to simulate
being under water).
I also vaguely remember someone saying that it's also partly a water/flume ride?!
(maybe I'm confusing this w/ another ride concept :-)
This is the one w/ the spinning cars, right?
The ride will leave the station and go into extended track. It will go through a scene, outside to look at WDS for a moment, then inside to another scene, and onto the lift hill which will be themed to the inside of a sub.Quote:

After the lift hill, the coaster part will be themed to be underwater riding the Easter Austrailia Current.
The whole ride will be indoors in a soundstage except for the quick outdoor part.
that coaster portion is a complete clone...my local amusement park where I'm working this summer has that exact layout. It's fun and all but VERY short.
Thanks, tloolgb, that jibes w/ what I remember... basically effects (such asQuote:

Oh, the cars are supposed to be turtle shapes to simulate you riding on
Crush (or another turtle's) back.
pyrates: would you happen to have a pic of that ride?
Yes it is an off the shelf coaster with extra track areas and a modified loading area.Quote:

Never heard that rumor but it looks like a great concept.

This is the one that fairs use. Cheap, Disney.
I'm kinda surprised that they didn't modify it, though--that first drop is pretty intense--it's at like 75º, and then there is the overbanked turn.
The concept art is confusing. in some sketches it is a tub with guests facing each other as if the car maight spin or rotate, other sketches show the guests sitting behnd each other in rows.
