B&M are always silent on their IAAPA stand with their new technology, still would have been nice for something (maybe a teaser photo on the booth!)

Thanks for the info on the train wheels going between the bolts on the Texas Giant rails. In my mind I still envision the bolts "chunking" the wheels.

More about KMG Mission Space covered by the local press:

By the editors on 12/11/2010

NEEDE - The company KMG - specializing in theme construction - is currently a special attraction to the building. If you have Parallelweg drive then you see him standing. It is the world's largest mobile attraction. The owner of the Needse company says that the 'Mission Space' eighty meters high. "This is unique, something no one has built."

The attraction has two major arms, each side is a hanging gondola that can carry ten persons. It runs, waving a rate from about 65 kilometers per hour.

The attraction has a value of approximately EUR 2.5 million, weighs 150 tons and has carried on four trailers. When he finished the Mission Space is first seen at fairs in the Netherlands. Then, the other countries in Europe.

Two years ago, experts of the company started with a sketch (see photo). Now the attraction in a test phase. A special office checks all calculations and sends it to test institute TÜV in Germany for approval.

I love the lightning wheels.

What's that ad below it though? Flying Launch?

Loving the report, keep it coming!

I didn't know Schilke was with Rocky Mountain Construction. Good to see that he's still involved with innovative projects. I haven't seen him since I watched him talk about the design of X in "Extreme Rollercoasters (2003)" on a Netflix DVD.

Awesome update, guys. Those S&S trains are hot! I hope they come to America sometime soon as I doubt I'll get to ride the Happy Valley launch coaster in the near future. I also never noticed how gorgeous the Manta trains were until seeing a car at that angle.

If you feel the need to "borrow" that Gerstlauer Euro Fighter model and send it to me, I'll definitely Paypal you the S&H. It would look great on my bookshelf.
