Six Flags St. Louis new water slide
Hey everyone, does everyone remember me on here. I haven't been on in almost 3 years. But I was just a little curious. I know that Six Flags St. Louis is putting in a looping water coaster this year at Hurricane Harbor, but I can not figure out how this is going to work. It's just a little confusing on how this will happen without restraints and how it will get enough speed to make it through. Any clarification would be appreciated.
And sorry I haven't been on in awhile but I'm going to try to get on again.
It's not really a loop. It's more like an inclined loop. The word "loop" means different things. It doesn't have to be vertical to be called a loop. The drop is nearly straight down so the slider gets plenty of speed and there are restraints - think about it.
On most inversions on a roller coaster the restraints don't keep you in your seat. Something else does.

Ahh I get it now. Thank you. And I didn't know there was going to be restraints.
The flume is the restraint. It's what keeps you in the ride.
Okay I now understand. That definitly looks like it will be a fun ride
Actually Eric, that's a Whitewater West Aqualoop. Six Flags St. Louis is getting a Proslide Superloop slide. Here is what it look like: http://www.proslide.com/rides_08_d.php .
