Villain's train spotted at KI

Recommended Posts

But new rumors indicate that The Racer may be involved with the plans for these new trains as well. Makes me wonder if they may take the Racer’s old PTCs and put them on Son of Beast and move all the G-trains over to The Racer.

 

Could PTC stop this if they wanted too? I'm afraid of how this might turn out.

There is absolutely no way they'd put those old PTCs on SOB. They'd be torn to pieces.

 

Yah, it would be painful. But if CF decides to, could PTC stop them? I doubt they would want to put their name on a coaster with as bad of a reputation as SOB.

It would be a horrible idea to change the trains on the Racer and Son of Beast. Those trains are classic on Racer, and the new Son of Beast trains just make the ride SO smooth. Why change what works.

I wasn't familiar with these two coasters since I never made it to GL (drove by it because I went to a wedding down the street from it, but never been in... I tried to talk the wife into going but I wasn't successful :( ). I wouldn't like to see the cars on any of our woodies. The Villain cars look cool, but I don't see them on Racer or Beast. IMO, you gotta keep the PTCs on Racer. It's a classic, and the cars fit that. Now if only we could have those original lap bars back... I feel sorry for those of that are too young to remember them. Back then there was a good reason for those "Please remain seated for the entire ride" signs.

When was the Racer re-fitted with the current restraints? I don't remember the Racer without the current restraints. And did The Beast only have the lap bar when it first opened? My Dad said that is all that he remembers when it first opened, but I haven't heard that anywhere else before.

 

Hopefully the other RWB train will end up on SOB.

^ If I remember correctly Racer got the orange ones in the late 80's / early 90's. Beast had the straight lap bar back then too. And there was no divider in the middle of the seat, both riders shared the same lap bar and the same "bench" for lack of a better word. All this led to A LOT more air time. They were also more comfortable IMO.

Yah, that would be pretty cool. Is that when they switched from the 4 row cars to the 3 row cars?

Interpreter was saying they can't go on AE. Those trains aren't built for steel track, and I don't think you could physically modify a wooden train to fit on steal tube track.

Completely different track.
