VIDEO: RailBlazer Roller Coaster Train Up Close At California’s Great America
When RailBlazer opens for the 2018 season at California’s Great America, it will be the first roller coaster of its kind on the West Coast featuring a single rail track throughout. The design requires riders to straddle the rail, creating an extremely low center of gravity that amplifies every move and enables more dynamic turns and rotations than have ever been possible on a coaster. With an eight-passenger single file train hugging the rail, the coaster will give riders an unobstructed view of the ground and air as they speed smoothly over the twisting track.
RailBlazer will lift riders to a height of 106 feet before plunging them face down at a 90-degree angle. Throughout the 1,800 feet of track, riders will travel 52 miles per hour, experience an abundance of airtime and steeply banked turns, undertake three inversions and twist through a zero gravity roll.
Riders will have an unobstructed view of the ground and air as they speed smoothly over the twisted single rail track. The train design is reminiscent of a ATV, complete with front grill and bumpers, mixed with a little State Route 1 theme. The three trains will be green, red, and yellow.
The new trains have already arrived to the park, and this morning, ACE filmed a RailBlazer train at California’s Great America for an upcoming documentary, check it out!
