Innovations for the future

Recommended Posts

Mack was big on developing spinning coasters and water coasters (water coasters as in ones with actual cars, not the kind Pro-Slide builds).  The trains they use for their hyper coasters are also more accommodating to larger guests than Intamin's.   Their hypers also don't use cable lifts, which, the ones installed on Intamin's have had a history of snapping.  

They've recently created a launched water coaster which goes back and forth along a shuttle course and on the last time through, the splash track lowers to create the splash that lowers the speed as it goes back into the station.  Their first such ride was built at Walibi Belgium by the name, Pulsar

Lots of intamin hypers uses a chain lift.  Aqua trax?

Intamin developed lsm's, hydraulic launch, worlds first giga, multi launch terrain, pre fab woodies, the list goes on and on.

^Intamin, as of late with their overseas builds, have almost exclusively been using cable lifts, including on their smaller coasters like their 10 inversion coaster and megalites. 

Also, Intamin has only built 1 Aqua Trax, as in it never caught on.  Mack has built quite a few water coasters.

What has Mack innovated?  They're copying Intamin.

The intamin pre fab woodies was doing everything the RMC's are doing now sans inversions being a real woodie. 

I still rank el toro above any rmc.

LOL k 

 

 

 

All of these are brand new designs that have popped up over the last few years, not to mention they have an entire theme park (Europa Park) that is constantly voted the best theme park in the world, full of their own rides (only two rides in the entire park have not been built by them, Woodan, and Silver Star)

I had no idea Europa park was run by Mack until now. Its so odd that a single manufacturer can give so much variety to one park.
