Description
Life-size Preston & Barbieri Anaconda 2.0. RCDB says there are 4 of these, located in Pakistan, Tajikistan, Romania, and Maine(stan) :D. The one in Maine is the newest, installed summer 2018. It's in Palace Playland at Old Orchard Beach, and is called "Sea Viper".

This replica is pretty close, having the same footprint and heght as the real thing, and the same top speed. However, the 1st drop is a bit steeper than the real thing. The supports are also pretty close as limited by the track inaccuracies, and there are a few less supports than in real life due to reasons of space mostly caused by the unalterable width of the PC station platform.

The P*B Anaconda 2.0 is a modern compact coaster. It's about the same size as the old SDC Galaxi and sometimes is used to replace a worn-out Galaxi.

This was your idea to being with, Fisherman, so of course I had to listen :)

UPDATED 26 Nov 2018. Reduced banking in the 2 long straightaways to be more like the real thing, and altered the supports to match. Blame Fisherman's feedback :)

Thanks, Svikiboy! Yes, the supports were a fair amount of work. I averaged about 3 towers per day for all but the very simple triangular ones. This time included bashing the previously laid track to match what it was possible to build with the supports., then adjusting previously made supports to match the recently reshaped and resmoothed track. But that's all part of the several technical challenges that attract me to doing compact coaster replicas.

This will be updated soon, hopefully by the weekend. I need to add a few finishing touches.
