The coaster made out of cake is a amazing work of art. The show looks pretty awesome. Love to see those Pong machines pop up soon at Dave and Busters.

Lot of great pics and videos. That is amazing footage from Disney Parks. Thanks!

Oh, c'mon! This isn't a Universal attraction! :lol:


Roll, stop, watch video . . . repeat. That's the Universal way!

Don't forget water being squirted at you too.

I've never worn shorts to IAAPA in the last 18 years we've been covering the show.


What I should have said then is this is the only time I usually see you without shorts on a yearly basis and it looks odd first glance. Or on your fall/winter NYC and Utah visits. You just don't look 'natural' in pants.....or without a Starbucks in your hand. ;)

Donkeys are my way of life!

So Is HUSS no longer in the flat ride business? They used to have such original rides that many other companies copied. That gorilla ride is nothing special really.

Yeah, they're still in it. Huss still makes and sells new Enterprises, Condors and Top Spins too. The market is just incredibly saturated.

But wait, IAAPA coverage isn’t over! Intamin and Compagnie Des Alps have announced two new coasters - a Mega Coaster for Walibi Belgium and an LSM Launched Coaster for Parc Asterix!

The quad launcher that's going to Parc Asterix looks sooooo good. The elements and ride systems are so modern and inventive. I'm sure I'll make it out to Europe to ride these eventually, but I hope the US starts seeing some more Intamins like these in the future!

The real Intamin/RMC battle has begun.

These new designs feel so contemporary and amazing! I can't wait to see how they turn out
