And here's a neat little concept I found on YouTube, a sit-down suspended coaster. Though it has flaws I'm sure with banking, a smoother track, and a longer train it would be amazing.
^That's actually a great concept, if you could put it into a larger scale, such as making wider and longer trains and having bigger drops, bigger turns, etc.
This really is a great idea as it takes away a lot of the mechanical issues that have been problems for suspended coasters in the past and even caused some to close such as BBW. Add some banking to the turns to kinda help the ride along and this could be a succcesful concept. I would definitely recommend that the slide bar be extended to allow for higher degrees of banking on the swings. Also, just for safety purposes it needs to have a stopper on the ends. Here's one of the things that really excites me about this design. Its the potential to invert. You would still have to be very careful in designing an inverting element to have the right G forces to keep the car in place without rotating but the potential is there. Or, how about making the slide bars into complete circles. You could built a standard vertical loop into the track but from the riders perspictive it could ride like a non-inverting loop as the car rotates to have the heavy side of the car down. Think of the canoe coaster concept where the track can do a full 360 degree rotation and because of the freeswinging nature of the gondolas. And as stated earlier, obviously a production model would feature a multicar train. I'm not sure if anybody will ever try and take on this design but it has ton's of potential.
Yeah that would be amazing to ride
