The world’s first Hot Racer and at the same time also the world’s first Launched Single-Rail Coaster named “Big Dipper” successfully opened to the public on December 26th, 2021 at Luna Park Sydney, Australia.

This outstanding Intamin Hot Racer is the centrepiece of Luna Park’s largest investment in multiple new rides, all basically at the same time. The “Big Dipper” packs ten thrilling elements and two launches into a compact layout stretching over two main areas making it Australia’s tallest and fastest Multi Launch Coaster.

After leaving the station and turning left into the rolling first launch, the train accelerates into a Stengel-dive and a zig-zag double-down providing the first airtime moments. After it has entered the boost section the train reaches a top speed of 72 km/h and is heading towards the iconic non-inverting loop ending in a sidewinder inversion. While rushing over an airtime hill, where the passengers experience -0.3g, followed by some high-speed s-curves passing over a fly-over wave turn, the train turns upside-down a second time with a flat spin. With a 180 degree turn and a twisting hop into the brakes, the train finally returns to the station.

The two 7-seater, race car themed inline-seating trains of the “Big Dipper” with ergonomically shaped seats and an over-the-shoulder-lap-bar, ensure maximum freedom and comfort in combination with highest safety for the passengers.

SPECIAL TRACK ELEMENT
Drop Track

Intamin’s newest Multi Dimension Launch Coaster, named “Namazu” by the park, successfully opened to the public on July 10th, 2021 at Vulcania, France.

Perfectly integrated into the volcanic landscape of the themed amusement and science park Vulcania in Puy-de-Dôme, France, this Multi Dimension Launch Coaster offers a unique, fully immersive family thrill experience. Following seismologists – who discovered an active seismic zone – the story takes visitors through the themed queue line into the research laboratory of the team “Namazu”, where the scientific adventure begins.

After leaving the beautifully themed station, the train enters a stone cave where an earthquake catches the scientists by surprise. This causes the cave to collapse and the train to fall multiple metres downwards to the ground. Escaping the ruins of the cave, the passengers then experience the first launch followed by a panoramic high turn and an airtime hill giving them a good sense of weightlessness. The next exciting elements are a highspeed S-turn, a zig-zag speed bump and finally a jump over an S-hump into the second launch/boost. Picking up more speed, the riders experience the second part of this Multi Dimension Launch Coaster with twists and turns as well as ground-hugging elements over the hills and down the trenches through the beautiful natural landscape surrounding the research centre, where the expedition ends again.

584 meters of track, one launch and one boost with a maximum speed of up to 69 km/h and a special drop track element take the riders on a family friendly, perfectly paced and complementary science adventure.

The two 12-seat, ATV themed trains ensure maximum freedom and comfort in combination with highest safety for the passengers.

Intamin congratulates Vulcania on their first roller coaster operating in their park and is proud to have contributed to this beautiful project.

NEAR MISSES

Mid of June 2019, Guangzhou Sunac Land in China successfully opened the World’s first Dueling LSM Triple Launch Coaster, named Dueling Dragons.

This most unique coaster features a layout, in which two dragon themed trains, one suspended and one sit-down, are dueling each other with a number of thrilling near-miss elements.

Utilizing Intamin’s most powerful LSM drive system, the trains of Dueling Dragons are simultaneously launched forward into the loop. Stalling by gravity in the loop, the trains then move backwards into the already passed LSM section. Launching backwards, both trains pick up even more speed, allowing them to reach the crest of the 50 meter high vertical spike. This is when riders experience a stunning moment of zero-gravity weightlessness airtime with their eyes facing down. Accelerated by the LSM drive system for a third time, the trains reach their top speed of approx. 100 km/h (sit-down train) respectively 110 km/h (suspended train) while rushing forward, passing through the loop. Out of the loop, passengers will experience several heart-pounding inversions, breath-taking airtime elements and a total of five near-miss configurations, bringing riders feet respectively arms close to the other train. Even spectators will be amazed while watching the two dragons dueling each other.

Another distinctive element is the fact that the physical track length of the sit-down layout is 790 meters and of the suspended layout 830 meters, whereas the actual traveled distance is 980 meters and 1030 meters, which is a result of the forward-backward-forward launch.

This Dueling LSM Triple Launch Coaster is not only highly innovative in terms of layout and ride experience but also in respect to the technology incorportated. Besides the integrated water-cooling system for the LSM drives, this coaster features INTAMIN’s newest train design with ergonomically shaped seats, ensuring highest safety and maximum comfort.

With the start of the new season, Djurs Sommerland in Denmark put Denmark’s highest, fastest and most impressive Gyro Swing named Tigeren into public operation.

Tigeren, meaning “Tiger” in Danish, is themed in connection to the powerful and mighty animal living in the Asian jungles. Located at the Wild Asia themed area of the park it joins Drage Kongen, INTAMIN’s Suspended Family Coaster (installed in 2017), Piraten, INTAMIN’s Ultra Coaster and Juvelen, the Family Launch Coaster (both opened in 2013).

The swinging pendulum of Tigeren reaches a top speed of 100 km/h combined with a comfortable slow rotation speed of the gondola. Most important of all is the suspended seating arrangement for 40 passengers, all facing outward, producing a sensational feeling of flying. As the pendulum passes through the vertical position, the passengers experience the thrill of increased G-forces. Swinging to a height of up to 45 meters with a 120 degree angle of swing, the sensation of almost complete weightlessness is dazzling any rider daring to try out Tigeren.

Besides the seats and the restraint, which both are guaranteeing highest passenger comfort, also the main drive represents a highly innovative design. Executed as a direct drive, it is the most powerful on the market and at the same time almost noiseless. INTAMIN’s Gyro Swing is not only the most spectacular, it is probably the quietest round ride of this class and size.

INTAMIN is proud of having contributed once again to the success of Djurs Sommerland and would like to sincerely thank the entire team for the great cooperation.

At the beginning of April 2018, Parc Le Pal in France started public operation of its biggest attraction ever named Yukon Quad. On this ATV (All Terrain Vehicles) themed Family Launch Coaster, riders are launched into the landscape of northern Canada.

After the pre-show, the door opens to take the ATV into the 1000 meter long “canadian wilderness”. The quads are being launched to reach 65 km/h followed by the first narrow curve taking riders up to the highest point at 12 meters. Yukon Quad drivers are at this time feeling accelerations of up to 3 Gs. Going down the hill, the track continues to change directions low on ground, which increases the feeling of speed immensly.

After these thrilling figures, riders are launched very smoothly for the second time to 85 km/h. The tight curve after the second launch makes the riders holding on tight to the handlebars while whizzing past trees and rocks. Before being thrown on the last hill and an S-hump, a very narrow curve brings the train to a very smooth brake making the end of the ride really dynamic. After having enjoyed this exceptional adventure of this crazy hike in the canadian north… riders get off with a big, big smile.

INTAMIN’s Family Launch Coaster, as its name suggests, is a more family oriented, but at the same time still quite thrilling. Using Intamin’s state of the art friction wheel drive system in combination with a unique and highly popular vehicle design, this coaster type has proven to be an exciting variation on INTAMIN’s family of launch coasters. The upright seating position, in a side by side arrangement with two passengers per vehicle, in combination with the individual lap-bar paired with foamed seats and on top of all this the exciting launch/boost experience, guarantees a safe and unique ride experience combined with a high comfort for passengers.

INTAMIN is proud of having contributed to the success of Parc Le Pal and would like to thank the entire team for the great cooperation.
