I'm pretty sure they are the ones Paramount used to make Stealth work when it was moved and then Cedar fair did much the same with firehawk.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Did anyone else find it funny that the cover of their pamphlet has a picture of Mr. Freeze with OTSR's?

I guess I just thought it would be a better marketing strategy to show your newer, improved work...not your old, head-banging nightmares. Maybe Premier could learn a thing or two from Vekoma? ;)

IAAPA Re-Cap: PAX Company

What a strange company this is. It kind of reminds me of the Japanese company, Meisho...only Russian. There rides look crazy and the coasters...well I have never ridden one, but I hear they are pretty wild.

First up is the Company services, profile and concepts....then the Ride Catalog.

Wow. Those insane shuttles and shuttle concepts made me check out all of their rides on RCDB.

They remind me of rides I've made in RCT, with random changes in descent/ascent angle, crazy transitions, etc. They event have a lift hill that changes directions and angles during the climb.

And that Loop 520 does NOT look comfortable.

Check out the lift on their "Astropax 18" model. Picture from rcdb.com

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Gosh, is there anything PAX don't make? Their shuttle loop coasters look INSANE - would love to give one a go.

I agree, they do look pretty crazy. I can't say that I've ever heard of the PAX Company before. Their rides look interesting to say the least...

I think that PAX did a very good job with their flyers. Much better job than some other companies did. PAX seems to make some very unique, medium-sized designs. I can see one of their coasters coming to a smaller US park like Beech Bend or a beach park.
