Designed by former Schwarzkopf engineers using computer modeling,
Hurricane is currently the only coaster of its kind in North America.
This second-generation Galaxi coaster utilizes standard five-inch pipe
rail. Ride features include eighty-degree banking, an inverted loop and G
forces of 4.7.
Guide to Ride 2000:
50 feet high, 30 foot drop
1,430 feet long
Two trains, three 4-seat cars
This was the first installation of this production model coaster.
Okay, let me guess: They're both wrong? >><BR><BR>
The 1991 version is most correct--- 59 feet high is correct, 1437 feet is
correct, 35 mph (approx) is correct. As far as the length of ride, I've
personally clocked it from pressing the "Advance Zone 1 to 2" button until the
ride stops in the unload station at 1:26 nearly every time. Maybe when it
opened in '91 it was slower though, I know they added weights to the car at one
point. I never knew what the offical longest drop was, though, although 52
feet sounds a bit high in my opinion. The paragraph in the 1991 is correct as
I saw one for sale at the PPP, I shoulda picked it up, have the 2000 one but
it'd be nice to have an old one too.
Maybe next year.
Thanks for the info, Dave.
