  • Possible Gringotts Coaster Technology?

    This is a video made by Dynamic Structures, the company who made the Forbidden Journey ride at Islands of Adventure and are also creating the new Gringotts coaster for the Diagon Alley expansion inside Universal Studios Florida.
    This is NOT the actual attraction, but we're sure that some of the technology on display WILL be included in the finished attraction.
    What do you guys think?

      Looks a lot like the Mummy coaster at USH, but with a few new changes (specifically the sideways change).

          I think it's going to be incredible even if this isn't the actual ride itself. Just seeing the possible combinations plus show scenes looks impressive to me. It may even take away USF's Revenge of the Mummy's crown as best indoor rollercoaster when it opens.
          Current coaster count: 179
          100th coaster: Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood
          150th coaster: Intimidator at Carowinds
          last new park addition: Six Flags Great America

                For people who have seen the video that is now gone, is the technology similar to what we have seen/experienced in the Forbidden Journey ride, or seem completely different?

                  There was a verticle track drop. A dome the car pulled into and dropped out of and a sideways drop track. The video mostly showed off coaster and track elements.
