Mack: Will we see an inverted looping coaster coming from you guys in the future?

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Mack:
You guys offer a bit of a fresh approach to the amusement industry. Do you intend to retain this by creating some more interesting, perhaps unorthodox or simply strange installations?

Mack - With Project Helix at Liseberg coming in 2014, we have noticed a few changes to the announced layout, are these sort of changes requested by the park or are you suggesting newer ideas as you think about them?

NOW OPEN FOR GENERAL QUESTIONS TO ANY COMPANY!

Image
Hey everyone!

IAAPA starts up next week and this year we're gonna change things up a bit! Normally, we do interviews with all the major ride companies, and to be honest, most of the interviews from year to year are very similar, because they can't really talk about that much coming up, and we already know about what they've already built.

So this year we're gonna give the opportunity for YOU to ask a question! Here's how it's gonna work....

RULES! (Because we need them!)
1. You may ask a question to ANY ride company, even if it one we have not covered yet in this thread. There is a good chance we will talk to more companies than those discussed already.

2. Please use the following format: "Company Name:" "Question" For example: "Intamin: Do you think it is possible for every park in the world to have an Intamin Mega-Lite?"

3. Ask as many questions as you like, but each question MUST be in a separate post!

4. We will take questions through Sunday evening, November 11th.

Everyone got it? GOOD! Now....

What question do you want us to ask ride companies at IAAPA 2012?

START ASKING QUESTIONS!!!!
(Be sure you've read the rules before you post!)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Gerstlauer : How near/far are your designing software compared to Newton²?

(Yeah, I really want to know! ;) Hope my english's good enough for you to understand, I'm not sure of the formulation.)
