New coaster concepts from Intamin!

Postby A.J. » Thu Jul 23, 2020 4:03 pm

Hey everyone -

I'm sure you may have seen these making the rounds earlier today... Intamin has presented four new roller coaster concepts.

First we have a new single-rail, inline-seating racing coaster concept called the Hot Racer.



Second, a super-compact multi-launch LSM coaster.



And third and fourth, two single-rail water coasters - one a full circuit and one a shuttle like the Mack Power Splash.





Annndddd. ready, go! Discuss!

I'm interested to see Intamin's take on some of the concepts we've seen from other manufacturers. I'm most intrigued by Hot Racer since I loved the interaction of West Coast Racers and I want to see what craziness Intamin can do with the single rail track.

I thought it looked like a brontosaurus to be honest, not the future. :lol:

I love Intamin, but the computer animation in these is leaving me a bit . . cold ?

but I look forward to someone getting Hot Racer concept, or the Giga Splash - that towering waterfall would be a *stunning* feature in any park.

so eager to see what comes of these concepts, and hopefully some will get built.

Intamin is king
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

upside down launch sounds fun.

I find it interesting that they will want to make new water rides after all the issues they have had with the last models they have built.

I'm kind of two minds on this. I agree with this that I'm excited to see Intamin's take on popular rides out there right now. But it seems a little weird to me. I always love Intamin because they usually go off and do their own thing that's completely unique at the time e.g. Aquatrax, 4D spinning coasters, a plug and play wooden coaster, giga/strata coasters etc.

I'm sure I'll get hit with many examples where I'm wrong now but it feels weird to see Intamin instead doing their own spin on other companies' popular concepts. I realize it's common in the industry but it seems a new direction almost for Intamin. The Giga Splash at least looks unique from anything else out there.

These look very okay. Very, very okay. I could see the Chinese parks and Energylandia buying lots and lots of them.


Okay... Maybe the Giga Splash looks a little better than okay!

I will admit that I was *interested* to see Intamin take on several concepts that other manufacturers have tackled. It looks like their version of a single rail, a PowerSplash, and a Sky Rocket II. That Gigasplash looks wild though.

But I will never complain about more competition in the industry. Intamin just usually goes off on their own path and inspires other manufacturers, not vice versa. I still love and worship Intamin and look forward to any of these getting built!

Probably Energylandia.
