PARK EXCELLENCE AWARDS

The year 2023 has already now been an intense and pivotal year for us at Intamin, brimming with new ride opening milestones and a host of prestigious awards.

For one, we are highly honoured to have received accolades across multiple award categories at the Park World Excellence Awards: Supplier of the Year, Best Roller Coaster of the Year, Best Ride, and Best Dark/Media Based Ride. The European Star Awards by Kirmes Park Revue were equally triumphant, with Intamin securing Europe’s Best New Coaster and Europe’s Best Water Ride. All of this only being possible together with our trusted and valued customers.

Additionally, in regard of over a dozen ride openings, here is a quick recap of one of our most successful seasons yet:

BY
TOUTATIS!

It all began with the record-breaking opening of “Toutatis” at Parc Astérix in April, setting the stage with a highly anticipated layout featuring many elements with a highlight being our fast-track switch with reversed spike and reversed launch, beautifully themed and integrated into the park and surroundings.

Shortly after, Parque Warner launched its new LSM Launch Coaster in Spain, featuring our brand new developed LSM trains and captivating enthusiasts to solidify its place as a standout world-class attraction.

From UNCHARTED
to guest’s
bucket lists!

Back in Spain, PortAventura opened their technologically most advanced, storytelling dark ride “Uncharted: The Enigma of Penitence”, another novelty attraction to the Intamin portfolio— our first Multi Dimension Coaster featuring a fully rotatable, LSM-powered vehicle with multiple special effects elements and our first collaboration with Sally Dark Rides!

At the beginning of the summer season we opened two new Family Launch Coasters, “DarKoaster” at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and “Arctic Rescue” at Sea World San Diego which made their debut in the US being great additions to already stellar line-ups of both parks.

Immersion
comes
FULL CIRCLE

But the excitement didn’t end there! Sea World Abu Dhabi welcomed the public with open arms, showcasing two signature attractions from Intamin: The World’s first Dome Ride Theater “Hypersphere 360°”, featuring the first fully spherical LED dome and the thrilling and highly regarded LSM Launch Coaster “Manta Coaster”.

Dive into
AVALON’S
NEXT CHAPTER

In July, “Dragonwatch” Intamin’s Parachute Tower, soared to new heights at Toverland’s “Avalon The Next Chapter” in the Netherlands and its Park Excellence award-winning themed rides and surroundings.

The Motorbike
multi-talent
ZOKKON!

Shortly after in Japan we celebrated a grand opening with the futuristic LSM Motorbike Coaster “Zokkon” at Fuji-Q Highland.

We take immense pride in these remarkable openings and would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our customers for their unwavering trust and loyalty. Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey.

Sincerely,

The Intamin Team

Stengel & Intamin’s BB Track wins a Red Dot Product Design Award 2021

Stengel & Intamin’s BB Track wins a Red Dot Product Design Award 2021 2560 1703 intamin_admin

We are proud to announce that our partner Ingenieurbüro Stengel together with Intamin has won the Red Dot Product Design Award “Best of the Best” 2021 for the new backbone (BB) coaster track design. This track design is exclusively used in most of Intamin’s new coasters.

The Red Dot Design Award, which since 1955 gives awards to the most outstanding product, concept, brand and communication designs, is one of the most renowned design awards in the world. The jury of 50 international design experts rate products on characteristics like grade of innovation, functionality, formal quality, longevity, symbolic and emotional aesthetics, etc.

This year, the jury selected 77 winners for Product Design in the Category “Industrial, Machines and Automation”. Four of those winners additionally received the award “Best of the Best”, one of them being Stengel & Intamin’s BB Track.

The innovative Stengel BB Track steel element was developed against the background that common track designs for achieving high speeds and withstanding extreme loads have to meet the highest demands regarding safety, material and workmanship of the track, but often pay very little attention to the aesthetic side. Thus, the aim of this design was to further increase the anticipation and thrill of a roller coaster ride by lending it a new shape and appearance. The design of the track with its filigree design language and large track spans allows a significantly simplified fabrication and thus, besides the design, increases the cost effectiveness of the track production. The most recent use of this award-winning track is Walibi Belgium’s Mega CoasterKondaa“.

The Jury justifies the award as followed:

“This steel track for roller coasters convinces with impressive technical qualities and a fascinating new shape at the same time. Fundamentally rethinking the design of such steel elements, the roller coaster track has been given an outstandingly appealing look based on the patented concept of connecting curved tubes by means of thin metal sheets. Moreover, this construction approach allows material usage to be minimized.”

Intamin is proud of this achievement and want to thank Ingenieurbüro Stengel for the great partnership over the years and in the future.
