Will this ride be available as a portable?

That was what I was thinking. Looper or Rok'N'Rol. It looks like there is a lever to control the spinning. I am not sure if the Looper had that. I don't think it will do too well.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

I actually like the looks of this ride. Yes it is similar to the rides mentioned above....but is a modernized version. I would want to see the ride in person first....but judging by the video it looks like something I would pay to ride.

Question is, after Chaos, Inverter, and Sling Shot, who's gonna take a chance with Chance....?

Looks interesting. I know they have been working with parks more than anything else in the last few years, so I would guess that's the first place this ride would end up.

From our discussions with Chance at IAAPA, it didnt sound as if they had immediate plans to make a portable version available unless it was special ordered.

I think that is a great idea! A flipping Flying Coaster type ride would be a unique twist on a classic piece. Sort of a hybrid between the Rock N Roll and Flying Coaster...or in modern pieces The Catch'n Air and The Uni-Coaster.

My first thought on the Uni-Coaster is that it looks fairly "boring". But if you added the hill and the inversions off that hill it could be pretty fun!

First Impressions:

The lighting is not up to euro standards of design. Must be the same designer as the Thunderbolt.

The lighting package might appeal to grandmothers.

The tubs need Euro detailing.

No theme at the moment. Can use a wall.

Capacity is light.

All very valid points, IMO.
