Roller Coasters Life-Size Preston & Barbieri Anaconda 2.0

Here's a Preson & Barbieri Anaconda 2.0, a modern compact coaster. I painted this one after the "Sea Viper" at Palace Playland in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, which opened in the summer of 2018, although earlier examples go back about 10 years. It's about the same size as the old S.D.C. Galaxi. In fact, the "Sea Viper" replaced a Galaxi which, by coincidence, was originally from JP's Peony Park.


This replica is pretty close. It has the same height and footprint as the real thing, and reaches the same max speed. However, the 1st drop is a bit steep. The supports are also pretty close although there are a few less than the real thing.


This blueprint has about 2400 parts, about 2200 in the supports and lift machinery sheds and 200 in the minimalist station roof (raised rib metal roofs are expensive in parts--hopefully TMT will change that). These supports were some of the most arduous I've ever built. They weren't so hard to do, it's just that nearly all of them are unique so there wasn't a lot of copying to be done.

You're very good when it comes to coaster replicas! Nice work, Bullethead!

Beautiful! [up]
 
I tweaked some of the track and, therefore, it's underlying supports, to make it more like the real thing. Blame Fisherman :)
