Roller coasters coming to New Jersey - Gregory - 11-25-2017

Here's a new video I stumbled across on YouTube about two roller coasters coming to New Jersey in 2019.  I wonder if Lagoon would ever consider doing something like this:

I would say they have already done it. Wink

Yes and the beyond vertical coaster is done much better than Takabisa and this new clone of it. I tell ya what I don't like the slanted pre drops. I love Cannibals flat holding area before the drop.

Right? It's just an all out better design, IMO. It should either be the B&M Holding Brake or the over the edge. One good thing I will say about El Loco at Grandslam Canyon is the speed over the 90 degree drop, which is similar to other El Loco coasters. The slanted braked decents on the Gerstlauer coasters just look bad and don't excite me at all. I won't even start on their towers and Schwarzkopf Chain Dog lift systems from the 70s.

What I meant (and sorry about not clarifying it more) was putting two roller coasters together like that.

El Loco's speed over the drop was one of the best parts of that ride. I like everything about Hang time going to Knotts except that slanted brake section.

Only time will tell. If you had asked me in 2004 if Lagoon would have ever built something like Wicked I would have said no way, not to mention anything like Cannibal being built. So only time will tell.
