Huss is one of my personal favorites! Growing up, it just seemed coincidental that most of my favorite flats were Huss rides, my all-time favorite being Rainbow.

 

I wouldn't get too excited about Delirium. It's geared as a family ride, and I personally think it too elaborate mechanically for a family flat to ever be sold.

 

I'm right there with you, Rainbow is my favorite flat of all time. It's a shame theres barely any left.

IAAPA Re-Cap: Miler Industries

 

This is one of my most favorites! Fred Miler, owner of Miler Coasters has been a good friend of mine for years. As a matter of fact I purchased one of his first new generation Kiddie Coasters and installed it myself at the Upland Family Fun Center.

 

When my family sold our FEC's to Boomers! they decided to take it out...why? I never figured that out. They even said I could have it for free if I took it away. When I went to take it, it was gone, sold for scrap. Yes I am still a little bitter about it. Anyways thanks for letting me vent!

 

RIP Flying Daredevil...did anyone get the credit???

IAAPA Re-Cap: Maurer Sohne

 

Here is a catalog from a company that will be making a big splash in the Florida area next year. Maurer Sohne has done some smaller coasters like wild mice & spinners here in the states but Universals Rockit will be a huge step for them.

 

I like there rides so I say bring it on...

IAAPA Re-Cap: INTAMIN, INTAMIN & INTAMIN!

 

Lets get this Thanksgiving party started with some INTAMIN goodness. By far this was the best thing I picked up at the IAAPA convention, the Intamin ride catolog and as a BONUS the 40 year history of INTAMIN.

 

That is what this thread is all about, history. So if you have ever wondered how Intamin got started, what the relationship with Schwarzkopf was or where they are heading in the future...you will want to read every word of this, it is pure goodness!

 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, aren't we all thankful for INTAMIN?!?!?

 

-Shane

IAAPA Re-Cap: Premier Rides Inc.

 

Here is a look at Premier who seems to have a new coaster pop up every 2 or 3 years. They had a rough start (Outer Limits) but things seem to be pretty solid for this company now, and there rides are pretty good.

Did anyone else find it funny that the cover of their pamphlet has a picture of Mr. Freeze with OTSR's?

 

I guess I just thought it would be a better marketing strategy to show your newer, improved work...not your old, head-banging nightmares. Maybe Premier could learn a thing or two from Vekoma?

IAAPA Re-Cap: PAX Company

 

What a strange company this is. It kind of reminds me of the Japanese company, Meisho...only Russian. There rides look crazy and the coasters...well I have never ridden one, but I hear they are pretty wild.

 

First up is the Company services, profile and concepts....then the Ride Catalog.

Wow. Those insane shuttles and shuttle concepts made me check out all of their rides on RCDB.

 

They remind me of rides I've made in RCT, with random changes in descent/ascent angle, crazy transitions, etc. They event have a lift hill that changes directions and angles during the climb.

 

And that Loop 520 does NOT look comfortable.

Check out the lift on their "Astropax 18" model. Picture from rcdb.com
