Rating: 4/5. Shows a lot of interesting things for the prototype. The motor looks huge. Its also interesting to see that they originally used 2 rail track originally for the launch. Is it just a coincidence the track is Xcelerator colors?

Rating: 4/5. If you know the park well, could be an interesting view.

Rating: 3/5. Not a very detailed plan but shows the basic layout of the never-to-be coaster.

Dodonpa Video A video of the S&S Power launched coaster includes POV view, outside view of the launch and other parts of the ride. File Type: .mpeg

Click here to download (475 kb)
Rating: 5/5. Shows many great angles of the ride which I would love in my back garden!

Arrow Suspended Coaster Prototype Video

This video shows the prototype Arrow Suspended coaster model and full scale prototype. The model is very interesting as it shows a corkscrew so the long standing rumour that Arrow tried to put inversions on their suspended coasters can now be laid to rest. The full scale prototype is also interesting as it has a POV and all the track is unbanked so you can tell what it would have been like to go on the original Arrow Suspended coaster, The Bat. You can also see that Arrow were experimenting with different track types at this stage.

Arrow 4D Coaster Prototype Video

Originally found on the Arrow website FTP when it was accidentally left open by the webmaster, this video shows the prototype of the 4D coaster that was set up at the Arrow testing plant. The video shows a small stretch of track with the train making its way over it and doing a full seat rotation in the process.

Rating: 4/5. Doesn't really show much, but its still a nice download. 

Dive Machine Patent Plans When the patent was made for the original B&M Dive Machine to be placed at Alton Towers, It had a much different layout to Oblivion (the B&M Dive Machine that was built at Alton Towers). These plans show this figure-of-8 layout complete with a water splash. File Type: All .jpg

Rating: 4/5. If you have been on Oblivion then you will find this very interesting, but if you haven't then its still worth a look to see B&Ms original ideas.

Mindbender Crash This picture shows the aftermath of a crash on 'Mindbender', a Schwarkopf multi-looper coaster at Galaxyland Amusement Park in Canada. It is believed that one of the wheel assemblies sheered off which resulted in the front car of the train hitting a loop support which you can see in the picture. 
WARNING: this picture does show a dead body covered up by a sheet, so it may not be suitable for everyone to see.

Rating: 2/5. Not something a park would normally let you see, but you still can't really see much as the picture is taken from a long distance.

New Universal Park, Europe

A concept drawing for a Universal park that may be constructed in Europe, probably Germany. I know little about this project so if anyone has any details then please let me know! The center piece of the park is King Kong climbing a massive skyscraper with a roller coaster going through his hand. Looks impressive!

Rating: 4/5. Although it is hard to see details of the park, it is very interesting to see some of Universal's ideas which may make their way over to Europe one day.

Rating: 3/4. Good download as you can see how Tussauds change pictures into reality.

The Original Jubilee Odyssey

We were originally told that Jubilee Odyssey, the custom Vekoma SLC at Fantasy Island was going to be 260ft tall, reach speeds of 100mph and lots of other impressive stats. However, the coaster turned out to be nothing like that. This very small picture shows original drawings of what Jubilee Odyssey would have looked like if something hadn't gone wrong with the project. (Make up your own mind as to why this never came about)

Rating: 1/5. So small that you can't make out any details at all, but if you are a fan of the ride then it might be worth a little look just to see what could have been.

Got any rare rollercoaster resources that you would like to send to this site? You can email small files to or my MSN name is if you have a large file (over 1MB) that you would like to send me. Thanks!
