Evolution of a new ride

 Everything involved from planning to the first ride and everything in between. For instance the new X Flight at Six Flgs Great America.

Bob - While this may be a bit of a challenge, it is a cool idea that would be perfect for RollerCoaster!  I hope our RC! staff may be able to do an article along these lines.  Thank you for the suggestion.  -- David L.

Dave now that Cedar Point announced Gatekeeper maybe an artical could be done about it. After all they are ACE members. Member #40 if I recall.

Bob - ACE News will have ample coverage about a major coaster such as GateKeeper, but the development of a major coaster may be soemething RC! may want to tackle.  Do you know how to reach out to our Editors (Mike Thompson/ACE News and Tim Baldwin/RC!)?  -- David L.

Bob - I did send your idea to the ACE News & RC! Editors and Lee Ann Droud (our Publications Director).  I emphasized the possibly added in the points of view of  the park & manufacturer (although that may be asking for quite a lot).  -- David L.

I'm not sure I understand this request. Most of our articles cover this already. The Wooden Warrior article in RC120 covers everything from conception all the way through to the final product. Tim Baldwin's article on B&M introducing a new genre of coaster, the first wing coaster, is also covered in that same issue.

Isn't this what you are looking for?
