PERCENTS ENERGY RECOVERY

After the great success of “Taiga”, Intamin’s LSM Multi-Launch Coaster, in 2019, Linnanmäki in Finland successfully opened their new Intamin Gyro Swing named “Swingi”, to their guests on April 30, 2024.

The Gyro Swing operates with a 25-meter long arm combined with a rotating gondola accommodating 40 passengers. It swings back and forth, reaching heights of 42 meters at a 120-degree angle. Each swing provide riders with complete weightlessness at the top. Meanwhile, the enjoyable rotation ensures a dynamic ride experience with each swing and adds beautifully to each ride. Despite the ride’s thrilling visual appeal, Intamin’s Gyro Swing enjoys a wide ridership and is considered as one of the most favorite round ride in the world.

In addition, Swingi features a direct drive system, proven to be the most powerful on the market. It results in an incredibly smooth and dynamic ride experience. Furthermore, Intamin advanced this technology over the years resulting in a very low noise level from the direct-drive power unit.

Furthermore, the drive system enables the recovery of up to 40% of the power needed to operate the ride. Resulting in energy savings, and reduced operational costs for a more sustainable ride investment.

Moreover, passengers are seated in the suspended seating, secured by our most comfortable and service-proven restraint system without upper-body restrictions, which offers a high level of freedom to riders.

Linnanmäki introduced Swingi as a replacement for an old round ride, seeking a thrilling and iconic attraction that would fit within a restricted footprint. Therefore Intamin’s Gyro Swing is a great addition to the park’s lineup of rides.

Thanks to the fantastic collaboration with Linnanmäki’s creative team, Swingi’s theming was fully customized to match the unique musical theme of the ride.

We extend many thanks to our long-standing partners, Linnanmäki, for once again having placed their trust in us and to the whole team for their great collaboration on this beautiful project.

Skyrush Refurbishment: How we enhanced a beloved Experience.

Skyrush Refurbishment: How we enhanced a beloved Experience. 2560 1634 intamin_admin

After 12 years of operation, Skyrush at Hersheypark, Pennsylvania, has undergone a first-class upgrade. Since its debut in 2012, Skyrush has been a pioneer in roller coaster innovation, boasting the title of the first Intamin “Wing Coaster” featuring lap bars (instead of over-the-shoulder restraints) and soaring to a height of 200ft (61m) with a thrilling, dynamic layout and intense airtime experiences.

Why giving Skyrush new seats?

Being the first Intamin coaster to introduce floorless seats with lap bars, Skyrush set the stage for the now ubiquitous lap bar restraints, which Intamin LSM Launch Coasters has adopted a couple of years later.

As one of the key attractions for Hersheypark as well as (arguably) one of the best most popular coasters in Pennsylvania and even the U.S., Skyrush has always been an important attraction. The only thing missing was to ensure that all guests enjoyed a comfortable ride experience, which the first-generation lap bar system had inhibited for certain guests.

Inspired by the seamless, open, and comfortable experience offered by modern LSM Launch Coasters from Intamin, Hersheypark approached Intamin with a request to upgrade the Wing Coaster trains with contemporary LSM seats and restraints, aiming to enhance rider comfort and make an almost perfect ride even better.

Intamin’s Know-How 

This specific request from Hersheypark required the right experts and knowledge.  Intamin’s after-sales division “Intamin Parts and Services” (IPS), together with the U.S. Aftersales organization Intamin Ltd, had to conduct several preliminary studies in-house.

Initially, we needed to pinpoint all the components of the ride that the alteration would affect. Some were immediately apparent, like the space the new seats would occupy on the chassis. However, others were less obvious, such as the structural integrity of the entire coaster, which engineers had designed for a specific train weight.

We had to revisit every element in the intricate puzzle of ride creation from square one. Consequently, we had to meticulously apply the routine steps we undertake daily for our new attractions to this project.

Intamin’s team of engineers at IPS worked to create Skyrush new seats that seamlessly integrated into its existing configuration. They underwent rigorous assessment and scrutiny to ensure compliance with industry standards while providing optimal comfort. Every detail, from structural integrity to operational procedures, was scrutinised to guarantee the utmost safety and enjoyment for riders.

The result? A coaster experience like no other, where thrills meet comfort in perfect harmony.

Experience the enhanced Skyrush 

Today, we invite you to experience the enhanced Skyrush for yourself. Feel the rush of adrenaline as you soar through the sky. Every twist and turn has been engineered for your comfort and safety. Whether you’re a seasoned coaster enthusiast or a first-time rider, the enhanced Skyrush promises an unforgettable experience that will leave you craving more.

Join us at Hersheypark and elevate your thrills with Skyrush new seats. It’s time to take your coaster journey to new heights.

The successful realization of this comprehensive refurbishment project owes much to the collaborative efforts between Intamin and our valued customer Hersheypark. The Intamin team relished the opportunity to enhance such a classic coaster like Skyrush, a big Thanks to the trust placed in us!

Enjoy your ride!

MINUTES RIDE TIME

Embark on a lunar journey! The Cité de l’espace opened its new immersive ride experience on November 14th, 2023. 

The equipment operates on a centrifuge principle, where the rotation speed induces acceleration on guests comfortably seated within ride cabins designed to mimic the environment of a rocket launch module. In total, there are ten cabins, each accommodating four experimenters. Not just an attraction, LuneXplorer is also a scientific experiment. The primary goal is to immerse passengers in the experience of being astronauts while elucidating the principles of forces. 

This unique immersive ride, the second one of its kind in Europe, allows visitors to undergo a simulated take-off and journey to the Moon, complete with the physical sensations involved. The experience unfolds in four 10-minute sections, beginning in the lobby of a renovated 1,500 m2 building dedicated to moon missions. To board one of the capsules and experience an up to 3G pressure lift-off, guests must be at least 1.30 meters tall. 

PREPARE,
BOARD,
AND TAKE OFF!  

What if, this time, you were the astronaut? With LuneXplorer, embark on a mission to the Moon during an immersive journey lasting around forty minutes. 

STAGE 1:

PREPARATION
 

Discover and compare the Apollo lunar missions with the new Artemis missions to the Moon, involving the European Space Agency (ESA) alongside NASA. 

STAGE 2:

THE
BRIEFING  

Compose your crew—maximum of four people. Ten other capsules will take off simultaneously. Follow the instructions of ESA astronauts who will prepare you for the mission. 

STAGE 3:

THE MISSION
TO THE MOON  

It’s time to take off for the Moon! Take your place aboard your capsule and experience the accelerations and decelerations of such a journey, akin to astronauts on a mission. 

STAGE 4:

DEBRIEFING
 

As with all experiences, this one concludes with a debriefing based on your flight parameters, providing insights into the return to the Moon and future projects. 

Intamin is proud to have collaborated with the Cité de l’espace to merge entertainment and knowledge, contributing to their success. We extend our gratitude to the entire team for their exceptional cooperation.

A Whole New Level of Immersive Ride Experiences: The Dynamic Motion Stage

A Whole New Level of Immersive Ride Experiences: The Dynamic Motion Stage 2560 1601 intamin_admin

Immerse Yourself in an Experience Unlike Anything You’ve Experienced Before!

Intamin’s Dynamic Motion Stage offers a new level of immersive storytelling with a highly dynamic and unique ride system. This ride will stay in your guest’s heads long after leaving your venue.

Experience the Dynamic Motion Stage

An immersive ride unlike anything you’ve experienced before. The main platform of the Dynamic Motion Stage is moved by means of four hydraulic cylinders with a centrally fixed support. The central support ensures a minimal clearance envelope, as the horizontal movements of the platform cannot extend beyond its edge. This means show sets can be built close to the guests and entry as well as exit to and from the ride is made easier with no additional infrastructure required.

The Dynamic Motion Stage is able to perform pitch, roll and yaw movements as well as heaving and dropping your riders up to 3 meters at a speed of 3 m/s, achieving weightlessness sensations. Each cabin pod has unlimited rotation and can simultaneously be superimposed with the rotation of the main platform (also featuring unlimited rotation). This allows you to have full control over the experience of your guests as well as let the guests interact with each other according to your story. The cabin pods can also perform tilting movements if desired. This combination of the overlapping movements creates a multidimensional experience with new, innovative sensations for a highly re-rideable experience!

New Levels of Storytelling

With this ride, your story can now be told on multiple levels. The primary is on eye level in horizontal starting position with a level below the platform as a secondary level, which becomes visible when the stage is tilted. Additionally, a ceiling area above the guests can also be incorporated, which becomes the focal point when the stage is tilted upwards. Through the ride system’s freedom of movements, you always have full control over where your guest’s attention is directed.

This ride offers possibilities for storytelling using physical theming, fully media-based or a mix of both. This makes the immersion even more impressive and puts the passengers in the middle of the action, the vehicles can even interact with each other during the story by turning them towards one another. Due to the seating arrangement, every ride is a different experience resulting in a highly re-rideable attraction.

Stage and Vehicle Designs to Meet Your Need

We have various vehicle configurations to meet your needs. Individual cabins which optionally tilt, facing your riders in the same direction, circularly facing inward or outward, you choose! For an experience as a state-of-the-art motion cinema, the entire stage area can also be configured as one large theatre seating with rows across the whole platform. The configuration options are very broad, we are confident to find the right one for your project. All of the seating configurations are using Intamin’s ergonomically shaped seats with individual lap-bar-restraints ensure maximum freedom and comfort as well as highest safety.

This attraction is ideal for storytellingadventures for the whole family! This is an exclusive attraction engineered for theme parks as well as for locations looking to differentiate themselves from the competition, as part of an already existing entertainment concept or a stand-alone attraction.

If you are interested in this exceptional ride system, contact our team for more information!

New Water Ride Features

New Water Ride Features 2560 1440 intamin_admin

New Features for Your Water Rides

Intamin has developed new layout elements for its Flume Rides and its Rapids Rides to bring water ride experiences to the next level.

Upgraded boat designs, an innovative booster system for Flume Rides and special elements like a teeter totter, free fall track or steel slides sections on a Rapids Ride are some of the novelties now available.

Your Next Generation Flume Ride

Intamin’s 8-passenger Flume boat has been notably upgraded. The main improvements on the boat are the comfortable seats as well as the individual lap bar restraints, designed for quick and easy loading & unloading.

In addition to the upgraded boat, Intamin now offers a booster element which is a world’s first for water rides. This, optionally submerged, element is used to boost the Flume boat’s speed in a flat flume section and can be used, for example, to grab some airtime over a hump without the need of a down-chute before.

Intamin also has upgraded its V-Switch track element, which is now called the Swing Switch. The Swing Switch can now swing the flume boat from one side to the other into a backward section while simultaneously performing the backwards motion, so without requiring the boat to fully stop during the swing.

Rapids Ride with Special Elements

Intamin’s Rapids Ride received a number of new special elements which have not been used on a Rapids Ride before. Create unique ride experiences with one of the following new special elements:

  • Teeter totter
  • Vertical in-line lift with steel slide
  • Parallel lift with down chute
  • Inclined lift with drop and show waterfall
  • Inclined lift with drop
  • Inclined lift with floating horseshoe drop

Update Your Existing Installation or Design A New One From Scratch

Surprise your guests with Intamin’s various innovative lift configurations, adding even more uniqueness to your water ride. Implementation of most new features in existing rides are possible.

The Upgraded Intamin Surf Family: The Surf Rider 2.0 and the Ultra Surf

The Upgraded Intamin Surf Family: The Surf Rider 2.0 and the Ultra Surf 1667 1111 intamin_admin

The Upgraded Intamin Surf Family: The Surf Rider 2.0 and the Ultra Surf

Intamin is proud to present the completely upgraded version of our “Surf Family” coasters: The Surf Rider 2.0 – available in two sizes – and their bigger sibling with an enhanced ride experience: The Ultra Surf. All of them come with a significantly increased capacity and are powered by the most powerful LSM launch system available on the market. They’re packed, and we really mean packed, with weightlessness and airtime moments.

After talking to our customers, Intamin decided to make important upgrades to the ”Surf Family” portfolio: We kept the fun ride concept and added improvements which are bound to satisfy both park owners and ridership alike.

The new, bigger, state-of-the-art free-spinning gondolas – now with 20 seats instead of 12 – allows us to achieve nearly double the ride capacity per hour. Due to the use of cutting-edge lightweight construction methods and materials we were also able to substantially reduce the weight of the moving masses at the same time.

A unique ride-experience – for thrill seekers and for families – provides an enhancement for every park. This, not only because of the abundant theming possibilities but especially due to the ride’s combination of power, compact footprint, capacity and last but not least simply the fun factor!

The Ultra Surf

The Ultra Surf comes with a large amount of weightlessness and airtime moments: It’s packed with it, not only attributed to the added airtime hill but also because of the two beyond vertical, ejector intense gravity stall ramps. On account of the free-spinning vehicles, the feeling of floating and spinning through the air is experienced in a different way each time, so you’ll want to ride it again and again. Lastly, with the shuttle-style coaster design on a compact footprint, you get an extended coaster feeling with up to 600 metres of experienced track on 180 meters of physical track.

For those looking to increase the excitement factor of the Ultra Surf even further, the optional spin-incitation will enhance the intensity of this new member of the “Surf Family”. Another measure to elevate the experience for both riders and spectators alike are the optionally available water features allowing for a number of different fountain patterns. Speeding through a water vortex tunnel, creating a water wall or riding right through a water curtain – the installation of these interactive features allows for a controlled degree of how wet you want your riders to get or simply allows for adaptions to the seasonal weather situation. These effects are not restricted to water, you can theme the ride to a number of other elements, enhance it with fire shows, add a fog tunnel or dedicate the whole ride to a fantasy figure – the theming possibilities of the vehicle and ride design of this iconic structure are abundant.

In the end, it doesn’t matter what story you want to tell, the ride system guarantees smiling riders leaving the station wanting to ride again and again. With its compact footprint, in consideration of being a signature attraction, the Ultra Surf is not only a perfect ride for theme and amusement parks, it also serves as a great addition for water parks wanting to give their visitors something really unique and special.

The Surf Rider 2.0

The Surf Rider 2.0 – a classic ride reworked to offer you more excitement for more of your guests. By redesigning the vehicle Intamin’s engineers reduced the vehicle weight, almost doubled the instant capacity and added a more powerful spin, guaranteeing that the Surf Rider remains a crowd favourite!

The Surf Rider 2.0 still comes in two sizes, both on a very compact footprint. One reaches a total height of 30 meters and the larger version extends up to 40 meters in height. A controlled spin incitation can optionally be added for an even more exciting ride experience. The most obvious characteristic of the nearly self-supporting, iconic U-shaped track is the two beyond vertical spikes – in which the vehicle surfs back and forth – for up to twelve unique moments of airtime-weightlessness for the riders. A fun ride for everyone, perfect for any size or type of park, indoor or outdoor, looking for a unique new crowd puller.

Intamin’s Innovations Built in the “Surf Family

The Ultra Surf and the Surf Rider 2.0 come with all the features of the latest Intamin innovations: The vehicles use the most comfortable and popular Intamin over the shoulder seat restraints, which allow for a maximum feeling of freedom. Utilizing Intamin’s state of the art water cooled LSM launch system the vehicle reaches a max. speed of up to 95 km/h and promises a surprisingly powerful acceleration from the very first push. The smooth ride experience is also the result of a simpler and wider track design which allows for less supporting structure.

Top 3 Ferrari World Abu Dhabi Attractions are from Intamin 1300 730 intamin_admin

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi revs up to give visitors a high-octane ride of their life with the park’s top three speed-demons and ultra-exhilarating attractions.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, winner of the “Middle East’s Leading Theme Park 2020” and the “World’s Leading Theme Park 2020” awards, is a thrill-seeker’s dream, with 43 rides, interactive attractions, and simulators that bring the turbo-charged “Ferrari feeling” to life.

Intamin is proud of having designed and manufactured the top three favourite rides in Ferrari World Abu Dhabi as reported by Attractions Magazine.

#1 – Formula Rossa

Reaching speeds of 240 km/h in a mind-blowing 4.5 seconds, this big, bad roller coaster boasts the title of the world’s fastest. Packed with 20,800 horsepower and the same winch system used to launch jet planes, it’s a scream machine that simulates the “F1-race sensation.” Tuck a towel deep in your pocket to wipe down those sweaty hands after your ride, because you’re about to be propelled 45 meters above the ground in less than five seconds!

Formula Rossa

#2 – Flying Aces

Count Francesco Baracca, legendary “ace of aces,” inspired the world’s first bi-plane themed roller coaster, and Ferrari World made sure it mimicked the hair-raising movements of the 1900s bi-planes. As if that isn’t enough, this beast of a ride has broken three world records, including World’s Steepest Roller Coaster, the World’s Fastest Inclined Cable Lift (51-degree angle, anyone?), and, at 52 meters high, it’s the World’s Tallest Non-Inverted Loop.

#3 – Turbo Track

Riders will defy gravity when this monster launches them 64 meters — vertically — through a glass funnel in Ferrari World’s iconic red roof, ending with a heart-pounding zero-gravity fall. Need more? This demon has both forward and backward-facing seats so that guests can experience the launch in both directions for completely different sensations. Prepare to be petrified!
