Seems that way with that clue.

If they don't run them like the Japanese version, not interested. :lmao:

I have always wondered why the massive Chinese S&S launchers didn't catch in the States? I mean, they are big, fast, have forceful launches and a decent capacity...

Huh? There's literally only been two ever built, one of which was torn down a few years later, and the other is in Japan.

^ You're thinking of S&S's thrust air 2000 model which only ever had two of its kind built. oriolat is referring to S&S's new compressed air launched coasters like this one and this one, to give a couple examples. There are currently three of these operating with more under construction.

^ Yeah. Actually, all compressed air launch coasters (at least based on what rcdb says) are/were made by S&S except for this wierd Chinese looping coaster and what looks like a defunct Intamin freefall coaster knockoff.

Record-Breaking Launch Coaster to Debut at Six Flags Great America


Parks 17th coaster, Maxx Force, Breaks Three Records

GURNEE, Ill. — August 30, 2018 — Six Flags Great America, the Thrill Capital of the Midwest, today announced a revolutionary, triple-record breaking, new roller coaster coming to the park in 2019. Maxx Force will be the fastest launch coaster in North America, and feature the fastest inversion and highest double inversion of any roller coaster in the world.

“Six Flags reigns supreme for record-breaking, one-of-a-kind rides and world-class thrills,” said Six Flags Great America Park President Hank Salemi. “The new Maxx Force coaster is in a class all by itself, launching riders from 0 to 78 miles per hour in under two seconds. No other coaster in the country accelerates at that blistering speed.”

Maxx Force highlights include:

- A unique air-powered launching system propelling guests forward at record speeds;

- The world’s highest double inversion at 175 feet above the ground;

- The fastest inversion on any roller coaster in the world with a 60 miles-per-hour zero-G roll;

- Five high-speed inversions; and

- One-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after Formula One racing cars

Maxx Force will be the park’s 17th roller coaster and is scheduled to debut in summer 2019 in the Carousel Plaza area of the park.
