That is absolutely orgasmic. Those aerials are second to none. Utterly amazing.

And did anyone else notice that SFA's Roar is the only GCI that I see with an entirely level parabolic airtime hill? :lolr:

IAAPA Re-Cap: Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH

Well todays update is coming a little later than usual, things have been crazy at work and I finally have a second to post this info from Gerstlauer. I am hoping to get this IAAPA update over soon (there are a couple more from Mack and B&M) then I can get back to some good old stuff. Enjoy the high-tech wood and spinnies from Gerstlauer.

Wow, their wooden coaster information is completely in engrish. Very tough to read.

I love their bobsleds and spinners.

I'm really looking forward to the Mack stuff!

Here is a late night post for all your lift hill nerds out there. Don't have much to say about this, just thought it was something cool I saw at the show so thought I would share it here.

I am going to finish up this IAAPA re-cap by Saturday or Sunday. We have B&M tomorrow, Mack on Saturday and maybe some bonus pictures on Sunday. So those of you that are longing for the original format of Shane's Amusment Attic, fear not, we will be getting back to the good old stuff soon!

Did anyone else find it ironic that the lift hill company used Hulk as their background silhouette coaster?

Anyway, interesting update. While I'm really looking forward to B&M and Mack, this was still a neat segment. I never pay attention to the chains...I guess they're a bit more involved than I imagined.

IAAPA Re-Cap: Bolliger & Mabillard

Well we are winding this IAAPA series up and what better way than with this great looking catalog from B&M. Would you expect anything less from this company?

On a side note, I must say Behemoth was the sleeper hit for me this season. I didn't expect too much from this B&M hyper but boy was I thrilled when I took my first ride (outside back seat). I am really looking forward to Diamondback!

The Dive Machine was not included in their standard catalog. It got a whole brochure to itself.

IAAPA Re Cap: Mack

Well it has been a little difficult trying to gete the last installment of the IAAPA re cap posted with all this maintenance going on. Hopefully I will get through this post before it goes down on me again...(hey that sounds kind of dirty)

This post of the Mack catalog finishes up the re-cap of the IAAPA convention of 2008. Hope you have enjoyed it.

Thanks for posting all of those, I really enjoyed them.

I loved how simple B&M's catalog was, and I had no idea that Mack has been around for 225 years!
