    Would a new skyride work?

    Important to note that Von Roll Seilbahnen AG was the division of Von Roll Holding AG that produced the original Type 101 Skyrides, such as the one at Cedar Point. In 1993 that division was sold to Austrian manufacturer Doppelmayr, the company mentioned above. It’s not unreasonable to think that they could not reproduce the original Type 101 design again.

  5. Here are some photos I just took. Looks like the formwork for the station is going up, and the grading for the paths and ponds is getting done.

    Seems to me that this is more in line with what Gravity Group is already doing with the Timberliner trains. Tighter turns and the ability to invert are a key part of their current advantage. RMC will always be able to do more with a steel track than is possible with a wood track. While we don’t see as many GG coasters as we do GCI in the US, the ones we do see seem to be pushing the envelope of what we would think a traditional wooden track can do. With GCI’s greater market cap, maybe we will see more rides similar to Mine Blower start to pop up with these new trains. I’m interested to see if the Infinity flyer trains are more comfortable than the Timberliners are. Those lap bars are hard to beat.

    Anti-rollbacks on Mystic Timbers

    Anybody else notice that they added anti-rollback teeth to the last hill of Mystic? I can’t remember if they did that last year after the valley or if that is new for Winterfest this year.
  10. Yep! Can’t remember the gentleman’s name right now, but I believe he was a project manager. EDIT: @BoddaH1994 was right, he was the president. I must have just seen manager on his card and not the president part.

    That photo is probably from the 2015 show, there is a different dive coaster car here this year.
  12. They will be the gas models, powered by the 9hp Honda engine. There is a lot of extra upkeep and maintainence with the electric models, so most parks are still opting for the gas engines. These cars are also engineered much better than the original Arrow design.
  13. Just found out from the fine folks at Gould Manufacturing that we will be receiving 20 cars for KMAA next year, which are being manufactured as we speak.
  14. Hello all! I will be heading down to the IAAPA expo next week and wanted to create a place where we can discuss any major news/developments. If anyone else here is going, I'd love to meet up as well! If anyone has any questions they want me to try to ask a manufacturer, let me know and I will try to get an answer.

    You are likely seeing the clearing for the new dorms. There is a thread on that here.
