Blue Flash - OffRide

Off-ride video

Blue Flash is a homemade roller coaster, designed and developed by John Ivers, and located in Vincennes, Indiana.[1][2] The ride began development in 2000, and was completed in roughly 2005, and has since been opened to the public. A second coaster, named "Blue Too" has also been developed by Ivers and is built in close proximity to the original.

DesignEdit

Elements

Vertical Loop

The ride lacks a proper station and has to be pushed by hand to the lift hill. The hill itself goes up the side of a metal barn propelled by a chain lift, and then drops while twisting to the left. The quick and forceful vertical loop follows immediately, and leads into the final helix.

TrainsEdit

The train is nothing more than an office chair with a few modifications to attach wheels designed for the track. It also has a seatbelt to hold riders in.
