So since today is the first day of IAAPA 2018, I thought I'd make this years edition of the topic, so we can keep all things IAAPA 2018 in this thread. Should be an awesome time as always! :)

Whoa that GCI train has articulated wheel bogies like Timberliners. It looks awesome! Will those trains be used for all future GCI coasters or just for that coaster? They look so comfortable.

I've just realized... Maybe Gerstlauer had some involvement in the design of those trains. They are called Infinity Flyers and they look to have nearly the same restraints as Gerstlauer Infinity Lap Bars.

That GCI model design won't be going anywhere I'm afraid. Its just a concept with no particular park in mind. Was lucky enough to get to watch it being built. Was quite a cool process.

In other news Zamperla have a car at their stand for a new Thunderbolt which will be heading to Mundo Petepa in Guatemala. :)

I must say I like the look of everything seen in this thread so far! The GCI train design and concept look like quite a departure from anything else they've currently done; the new restraints almost remind me a little of the clamshells you find on B&M hypers, but I don't know whether I'm the only one who sees that!

I also like the Kentucky Flyer train; looks really nice and colourful!
