Re: Cinecitta World, Italy | Unknown | Intamin 10 inversions
The fact the Skyrush restraints/seats were pretty much a failure* probably prompted a redesign.
As I said it's not a redesign, they were both developed at the same time.

^ Yeah, thats what I thought the setup would be too. I mean, why would the same company design two separate things? It seems a bit dumb and financially unviable..
I've just researched and IntaRide, or as we commonly know it, Intamin Ride Trade. IntaRide is just a broker and constructer that carries the Inatmin AG brand. The technology still comes from the Swiss plant and the other subdivisions facilitate the manufacturing.
Vekoma also do this and so do B&M and I imagine that a lot of mainstream manufacturers do this. Engineer in one place and facilitate at the others.
I'm not sure how you mean, but as I said it is two different offices.
Intaride in Maryland, US (headed by Sandor Kernacs) designs and calculate all the rides going to the states. They were for an example the ones who developed the hydraulic launch, and then the European office (headed by Sascha Czibulka) have sold it over in Europe using the same design, where they however designed the rides who use it.
Zacspin is a development from the European office, and the US office have used the same technology and sold it for SFMM.
They have a few different factories (in Europe) that they outsource manufacturing to, depending on where it is most favorable to manufacture at the time.
