I raise you two Demons and a Gemini.
Great stuff Shain, keep it coming.
A pair of Demons does not beat a Gemini. Not even three of a kind (ShockWave, GASM & Viper) beat a Gemini!!!
INTERNATIONAL AMUSEMENT DEVICES
OK, so you want more? I got more, while we are on the subject of coaster suppliers, how about this company that has gone under but was the mastermind behind the 1st Colossus...International Amusement Devices.
According to an interview with Bill Cobb, famous designer behind the Texas Cyclone, this company was not well versed in the physics of coaster design.
He mentions in the interview that they would take elements from other coaster designs and blend them together to create a new design. This was the reason for the rough design of the first Colossus. It was a "cut and paste" if you will, of other coaster designs that did not work with the laws of nature to create a smooth ride.
The coaster fought the laws of gravity and was tearing itself apart. Needless to say Colossus was the last coaster that IAD
designed and the company wasn't around to see the Grand Re-Opening of the newly improved Colossus.
I find it strange that this company was headquartered in Sandusky, OH. I am not sure if there were connections to Cedar Point from an earlier time and that is why they were there. Just seems kind of strange, kind of in the same way that Arrow is in Salt Lake, but doesn't have any of their coasters at Lagoon.
Just added this video of Montana Rusa, the coaster that inspired Colossus
