By Kath Hudson | Published in Attractions Management 2014 issue 3


Maurer SÖhne

Maurer Söhne is giving show guests the opportunity to view its new Saturn-V ­project, an affordable and easy-to-maintain dark ride. Based on one of Maurer Söhne’s Spinning Coaster layouts, this ride has been dressed up with a space theme and storyline, designed and written by New York design company Raven Sun.
 



Maurer Söhne
Holovis

Holovis is launching its next-generation interactive dark ride solution. Its latest interactive game title in the Dome-Rider series is River Raid, a highly ­immersive themed experience designed for up to six players using interactive devices, high-quality visual gaming content and real-time special effects, all within a full motion vehicle.
 



Holovis
Zamperla

Zamperla is presenting its latest roller coaster, the Thunderbolt, a modern-day imagining of the original Thunderbolt which served New York’s Coney Island thrill seekers from 1925 until 1982. This nine-seater ride takes passengers through a 90-degree dive, where vehicles reach 65mph (105kph), with a big loop, a zero-G roll, a Stengel dive, Z loop, fast camel backs and a corkscrew. The first installation has been made at Coney Island, its first custom coaster since the Cyclone.

Dynamic Attractions

Dynamic Attractions is using the show to launch a host of new rides. The Flying Theatre and the Immersive Transporter are both aimed at the family market. The Circumotion Theatre is a massive spinning, tilting and dropping room and the SFX Coaster is a roller coaster-dark ride mix which incorporates a high speed catapult launch and a free fall as the track drops.
 



Dynamic Attractions
nWave

nWave is launching its newest ride simulation title, Glacier Race 3D. Riders enter a death-defying race over frozen landscapes, through tunnels and across ice waterfalls. A new 4D attraction, the House of Magic 4D, makes its European debut, and a new film for the Halloween and Christmas season, the Haunted Mansion 4D, will be revealed. Inside nWave’s 54sqm [580sq ft] booth, a unique 3D screening facility means EAS visitors can fully experience nWave’s new content.

 



nWave
P&P Projects

P&P Projects is promoting its various services from design to build, with some of its latest props and objects on show. The company has worked on a number of exciting projects recently, including Europa Park’s Arthur and Disneyland Paris’s latest attraction, Ratatouille, which opened this summer.
 



P&P Projects
Cruden

Cruden will be showcasing its 6 DOF motion race simulation system, which offers a Formula 1 racing ­experience. The company has just supplied a high-end private members club in Guangzhou, China, which features eight race car simulators linked together.
 



Cruden
Proslide

ProSlide is showcasing the popular ProSlide funnels which are consistently topping installation lists. Twenty-five ­different versions of the customisable Tornado are opening in 2014. ProSlide is also promoting its tailored hybrid rides having installed many “world firsts” this year, including a Tornado 24 plus Tornado 60 at La Viva Water Park in China.
 



Proslide
Polin

Polin is exhibiting waterslide tubes and new-generation play structures, which include modular designs for flexibility and inter­active features like tipping buckets. In June, Polin installed a side-by-side Racer Twin Turbolance with its natural light effects technology at Aqualand Maspalomas, Spain.

 



Polin
Huss Rides

Besides top sellers like Giant Frisbee, King Kong and Sky Tower, Huss Rides has redesigned and improved some of its ­classic rides, including the Condor-2G. The company is ­promoting its latest gondola ride, the Huss Pirate Ship. This is already in situ in Djurs Sommerland in Denmark, designed as a Viking ship in a new Viking-themed area.

 



Huss Rides
Jora Vision

Dutch park design firm Jora Vision is currently working on the concept for Bamses Värld at Kolmården Zoo in Sweden, a new area celebrating an iconic Swedish character slated to open next year. The area, based on the comic book bear Bamse, will include themed rides, play areas and a show area. Jora Vision is developing the shows, entertainment, sound effects and special effects for the experience.
 



Jora Vision
Sally Corporation

Sally Corporation is talking to visitors about its dark ride options. Den of Lost Thieves, a wild chase through a pirate’s secret island in search of hidden booty, has a small footprint which makes it a good budget choice. At the opposite end is the interactive Challenge of Tutankhamun dark ride, where riders try (often unsuccessfully) to make it to the treasure room. Look out for the animatronic pirate at the Sally stand.

 



Sally Corporation
Jack Rouse Associates

Jack Rouse Associates (JRA) is introducing recent projects, including the Science Centre Singapore’s KidsSTOP, which opened in June. JRA provided the master planning, concept and ­schematic design for the interactive museum, which encourages children to learn about science through purposeful play and exploration. Features include a climbing structure with hanging leaves and fanciful doors, a virtual pond and a fossil dig.

Premier Rides

Premier Rides is showcasing its latest ride, the Sky Rocket II, which launched at Holiday Park in Germany this season. Branded as Sky Scream, it features a slingshot launch, backward accelerations, heights of 50m (164ft), a vertical drop and a loop — the ride lives up to its name.

Whitewater
Gateway Ticketing Systems
