Actually, I have a question.

Robb, did Mack show you guys how that new tea-cup-boat-thing ride worked? It looks really interesting, like it fills up with water or something (because of the grated floor). It looks like a really cool concept.

Can anyone help me understand the M&V company? I'm still confused about the whole M&V and Gravity Group relationship. I know that M&V built the last few Gravity Group coasters but do they design their own?

EDIT: Ok I looked on RCDB and see that M&V is listed as constructing a number of other wooden coasters. So do they do design or are these just concepts they are proposing hoping they would get to build?

EDIT2: Fixed Gravity Group name...

Be sure to check out the Namco booth's Pacman Battle Royale video game. 4 player head to head pacman where you can eat the other players.

^^ As far as I know they build the TGG wooden supported coasters, aka non hybrids. At least, so far thats what they've created.

Shocker to see Walter Bolliger clean-shaven... doesn't he know it's Movember?

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Great Coverage!

If you can, Go over to Booth 1051 and discover the new world with Themendous! No I'm not advertising for them. Well sort of... Just would like to hear other people input. They did several amazing jobs for various theme parks and BIG stuff around the world. :)

I'm surprised Premier is keeping the same car design for Trans Studio after all the problems Sky Rocket has had at Kennywood. The side pads have had to be replaced multiple times and/or taped together from their flexibility and tendencey to break. Also, the leg room in the back row is really tight. Hopefully the rumor of newly engineered trains for Sky Rocket next year is true.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

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.


Yeah that was a suprise....now if only he can find a way to market the arrowbatic through his new company since Arrow was never able to get any takers on it.

First IAAPA video coming soon! This will include interviews with Alan Schilke of Rocky Mountain Coasters discussing the Texas Giant, Chuck Bingham of Martin & Vleminckx discussing the Zippin Pippin, High Five, and wait for it...a LAUNCHED WOODEN SHUTTLE! It will also include some new technology from Maurer Rides, and a "behind closed doors" demonstration from Sally Corp! Stay tuned...

Sounds awesome!

If anyone can answer this for me: did Alan Schilke help design X? I vaguely remember seeing him in a video talking about creating X.
