I didn't think it was possible to love S&S any more... until I saw those new trains. I'm also dying to ride those looping slides.


The large tube is the Mega Tube. I believe the "flume in flume" is different than the mega tube (though possibly related).


Flume-in-Flume just means that the flume has a large enough diameter to allow for another slide to pass through it. Much like the picture shows, a piece of green slide inside of the bigger one. I however, don't understand how this could be achieved from a support standpoint.


Or why do something like that in the first place...lol. Thats why im thinking there is something else going on here, haha. But I might be wrong.

A launched wooden roller coaster? Gravity Group sure wasn't kidding when they said that the Timberliners were designed to do anything! That is a very interesting concept, for sure.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

The launched coaster concept is not Gravity Group, it is Martin & Vleminckx.

Light-up coaster wheels... launched shuttle woodies... Do we really need these things? No. Do I want them? Yes. Very, very badly.

Thanks for these super-sweet updates and keep 'em coming!

(BTW, I also had no idea that Alan "4th Dimension" Schilke was with the RMC folks now. Awesome!)

Ah, I see... I suppose that I jumped to conclusions a little quickly, assuming that it was GG given their relationship with M&V and the talk of the launched Timberliners when they were first announced.

Update #6 - 4:15 P.M. - Intamin, Zamperla, and Sally Coorporation!

Image

Intamin had a fantastic year! i305, Thirteen, Formula Rossa...amazing!

Image

Take that bitches!!!

Image

Hanging out with Sador Kernacs from Intamin.

Image

TPR footage at the Intamin booth!

Image

Sandor tells me there will be some changes in i305, and I'm not allowed to mention what I was told, but let me tell you the locals will not be disappointed!!! (oh who are we kidding, they'll bitch anyway!)

Image

Zamperla had lots of new and cool things to show!

Image

We rode the Happy Swing.

Image

Luna Park had a sexy display...

Image

The Air Race is like a new spin on the classic Rock-o-Plane.

Image

Sally Corp had some very interesting new dark ride technology.

Image

Scream in the Dark is a new concept where the louder you scream on the ride, the more bonus points you get!

Image

If you're scared of creepy clowns, you are going to scream a lot!

Image

Then Sally took us "behind closed doors!"

Image

Sally introduced us to a new video game/dark ride hybrid...

Image

We can't say too much about this yet, but I will say this is NOT just a "Toy Story Mania" knock off! It does some really cool things that we aren't going to give away!

Image

Sally's booth was amazing!

That "Tube-in-a-Tube" concept could actually make for some really awesome visuals. :)

I'm loving all the new concepts! I'm not a waterpark person, but the slide inside a slide concept looks really cool! Wish Hershey would take RECC and do that new videogame technology. That looks like it would rock when whoever decides to get something similar.
