Ardents latest: Illuminate & The Wedgie


Recommended Posts

Is it just my imagination or do the SuperLoop schematic illustrations all look much higher and steeper than the Wedgie? I also noticed the launch chambers have an angled/pointed roof which gives the SkyBox a better look. The Wedgie's has a cut-off top. Could this have been do with available space? I really think Dreamworld and WhiteWater World need to stop installing rides which are the first of their kind EVER MADE and go with one that has already been developed and improved. Living in Australia practically every ride is new to us anyway - even if they already exist overseas. Motocoaster is a classic example - Sea World got the much better version as all they had to do was wait and see what was wrong with the original. Anyway, back to the Wedgie I guess DW was limited by the height of the tower they were using

^ The Wedgie is a definite variation of what is shown on the ProSlide website. If you have a look at the photo below you can see the slide drops, then into a straight level portion for a bit before doing the downward spiral. The ProSlide schematics seem to show models without this (or at least a shorter) straight portion. Other than that I think the drop and spiral seem the same to me. In regards with the SkyBox, I think there may have been a clearance problem with the existing shade cloth. 0513-1_The-Wedgie_20.JPGhttp://www.parkz.com.au/photo/AU/Gold_Coas...The_Wedgie.html
