Umm, not sure where to post this exactly but here goes...
I'm just wondering whether a coaster idea I have been thinking about is plausible... It's for an imaginary Hong Kong Disneyland Resort second-gate that I have been posting about in the HKDR forum.
The concept in a way is a modern Matterhorn Bobsleds, but rather than spiraling around a mountain, the ride would be more like the real thing - set in a bobsled run (with highly banked curves).
So the technical side of things is what I'm not-so-good at... Does the following sound like a possibility?
I want to have the actual tubular tracks out-of-sight, underneath the "ice" surface of the run. I'm thinking that the train would be on mini-stilts so that when you look at the run all you see are two cracks under which is the track... I hope this is making sense?!
The train wouldn't actually touch the "ice", but would sit a couple inches above it.
Also, I want to simulate the motion of going down an ice halfpipe and moving from one bank across to the other in a slalem kind of motion, but with the train facing directly forward (not towards the banks) the whole time... on a different axis I guess.
Does this sound at all possible?
