This is called "Mission Space" and is guaranteed for an "oh poo-poo!" moment! This will be coming to the European traveling fair in 2011.

That thing just looks like it has engineering disaster written all over it.

Looks very similar to Sky Hook, which was at SFOG and Dollywood and maybe SFOT before SFOG - 1970's & 80's.

Great start so far. I'm already giddy as a schoolgirl at all the prospects for amusement! :br

Mission Space will debut next year, it's going to be travelled by the Kroon family in the Netherlands. They've been releasing teasers for the ride without showing what it will be, this model now gives the game away. The Kroon family co-owned the original XXL Afterburner so already are known for their BIG rides.

I beleive, but stand to be corrected, that the Kroon family are actually the people behind KMG.

Looks like we all need to go to China to curb our S&S appetites.

Update #3 - 12:40 P.M. - GCI and Rocky Mountain Coasters!

Image

It was time to say hello to our friends at GCI and have Chris Gray tell stories about building coasters!

Image

TPR Photos in display at GCI.

Image

And TPR video!

Image

The IAAPA bags of crap will come from GCI and each have been kissed by GCI's Joe Draves!

Image

Next stop...Rocky Mountain Coasters!

Image

We met with coaster design legend Alan Schilke of Rocky Mountain Coasters!

Image

Here is the awesome track that will make Texas Giant amazing again!

Image

Alan says the train wheels absolutely WILL go right in between those track splicers!

Image

This is their Topper Track technology. Silverwood will be replacing 2,000 feet of wood coaster track with this in 2011.
