Major Ride/Attraction (Product cost less than US$2 million)
Zamperla, Nebulaz

Major Ride/Attraction (Product cost of US$2 to US$5 million)
WhiteWater, Spinning Rapids Ride
Installed in Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park, China, Lava Drifting is not only the longest spinning rapids ride in the world at 1km (0.62mi), but also the world’s first spinning rapids ride with actual rapid rivers. The water ride depicts a volcano theme while combining the spins and twists of an exhilarating river rapids journey that culminates with the oscillating movements and steep drop from the wings of a Manta.

Major Ride/Attraction (Product cost of US$5 million or more)
Intamin, Dueling LSM Triple Launch Coaster - Dueling Dragons
A new rollercoaster from Intamin recently made its debut at Guangzhou Sunac Land in China, with the new dragon-themed addition seeing a suspended and sit-down train duel with each other through the course of the ride. Utilising Intamin’s LSM drive system, both trains are simultaneously launched, with five ‘near-miss’ situations and a visually impressive simultaneous loop, with the sit down train on the inside and the suspended train passes on the outside.
