You guys havent seen this on the Intamin website? They also offer it in a launch formation.

Sweet to see it actually getting built, though!

It is looking like the extra investment and also the licensing with Warner Brothers (source) is really going to pay off for the park.

Looks awesome, except for the fact that it's in Brazil.

The four corkscrews seems like a bit much.

They're probably very forceful though. I remember Fahrenheit's corkscrews were taken extremely fast and had an awesome snap to the apex of them.

I've already seen the 12-inversion design, but Hopi-Hari?! When I saw this on the site's header I literally said "what?!"

Looks cool though. I guess Cosmic Venture won't have the maximum amount of inversions anymore. [:(]

yeah what's the problem it being in Brazil? I'm from Europe and I travel all around the world to go on roller coasters. I came home from Tokyo a month ago and it was awesome! You americans really need to go abroad a bit more often. Broaden your horizon

I love to travel and I spend time saving money in order to travel, but you can't just say "You Americans really need to go abroad a bit more often". Not everyone can afford to just up and go to Tokyo, or Brazil etc. It is true that a lot of people are very inward thinking and unaware of the world around them, Americans in general do seem to be notorious for this, though. Still a bit unfair to say what you said.

I wish I could travel more than I do. But with a mortgage and all, and certainly more important things to spend money on, it can be difficult.



About the ride; it is odd that Hopi Hari have chosen this, I mean, I was unaware that their budget would stretch to something like this. Great news for brazilians, though! Looks like an exciting combination of a Mega-lite and a Looper. Also, I'm glad they've reduced the number of Heartline rolls to that of Colossus @ TP, as I personally much prefer corkscrews and, the 5 rolls in a row on Colossus is a little bit token, just to get to the 10 inversions. This, though, seems much more varied. Looks good!

Yeah, I wasn't like "Hopi Hari? That's Brazil! Why does Brazil get an awesome ride?", it was more like "I didn't know they had budget for this".

Also, I DON'T have the luxury of travelling around the world 24/7. In fact, I've only visited one park (Holiday World) this year, on one day, and that will probably be it for this season. Reasons being: A) I'm quite busy, B) they are far away, C) getting people to go is kind-of difficult. So I'm not even CONSIDERING travelling at the moment. Maybe when I am able to create my own means of revenue and time, but definitely not now.

And Americans aren't necessarily the inward-thinking ones. It's just the idiots. Unfortunately, our country is large, so we have more idiots that have say. If Britain was large, you'd have more idiots too. The ratio of idiot to not-idiot is probably pretty similar with both countries, it's just that we have more people so we have more "posts" (be it in real life or internet) that are stupid in relation to Britain's.

Anyway, this looks like a rant but it's not. Just pointing things out. [:)]

It's nice to see a 12-inversion coaster that isn't a clone of Colossus.

He actually wasn't that bad during his first term. His second term sucked.

The main reason Bush is blamed for everything is that he didn't attack Iraq imediantly. It's mostly due to public stupidness, and the Democrat controlled congress that kept him from doing his job.

How does every topic turn into a political and/or religious debate? Now it'll have to be locked, and everyone else's fun will be spoiled.

Just wait, Rick Perry might be just as dumb.
