Markings have been spotted on the old site of trauma towers at the pleasure beach which could indicate a new ride to soon come to Blackpool. Personally I would love to see a Mack Big Dipper because after seeing videos and clips of Lost Gravity at Walibi Holland, I would love to see one operating...
So it would seem that Discovery Kingdom is receiving a 4D Free Spin from S&S next year:
Should be a nice fit for the park, in my opinion! Also, it's interesting to see them go back to the old Batman branding like the prototype at Fiesta Texas had!
Well according to this article atleast it seams Sansei Technologies, the people who own S&S currently have bought out Vekoma.
Some of the Press quotes from the article.
Quite interesting development, will be exciting to see what comes of this hopefully.
S&S - Sansei has released a number of concept videos, showing new layouts for current models and new models all-together. Lots of concepts that feature back-launch spikes, such as we have seen on the new Star Trek Mack coaster. Which one is your favorite?
I love stuff like this! Reminds me of the roller coaster Dynamic Attractions offer, but this is much more simpler and confined to the elevator lift. It's almost like a pre-show but once it's finished you immediately enter the first drop! The gothic concept art needs to happen too...
