I'm not sure. But it's not like retracking a wood coaster for sure. When you go about replacing track by welding in new parts to it, it's not a good thing because that's the start of continually replacing parts of the track. To me it would signify that there's real stress on parts of the ride that cause that damage, and you can't get rid of those stresses. Maybe they did a great job, and they welded in some other bracing to help it out, which would make it last longer.How long ago did they do some retracking on Anaconda then?
Not to bring the topic off track, but I have a brief bit of information about this. Anaconda might be the only steel coaster I know where the track gauge changes throughout its course. Its most recent track work was narrowing the rails in some turns to prevent chassis and wheel damage as well as preventing track damage. This also somewhat improves the ride experience. Not many people notice how the trains don't bounce around in the butterfly element or the drop as much. That could just be because the track design is just complete crap anyways.How long ago did they do some retracking on Anaconda then?
If they could reuse the tunnel under the lake if and when that ride is removed, that'd be cool. My guess probably not though since it's probably too small and/or too old to make significant modifications to.I'd love for something like this to replace Anaconda over Lake Charles eventually.
