TPR Goes to IAAPA 2009 - Photos & Videos from the show!


Recommended Posts

Hey TPR Peeps!


Robb and Hanno are in Las Vegas and getting ready for the start of the big IAAPA Expo Show 2009. For those of you unfamiliar with this event, it's basically the biggest Amusement Park Trade Show in the World. There are booths from companies that range from giant roller coasters to churro stands!


They are all trying to sell their next big thing to the Amusement Parks, Water Parks, and FEC's out there.


We will keep live updates going in this thread today and tomorrow as Robb & Hanno walk the show floor, and be prepared for some video segments as well!

Show is open! Here come the photos!


Keep in mind, these photos are just to keep you updated AS THE SHOW HAPPENS! We'll have more in depth coverage later in the week. But for now, you'll get to see everything as if you were there!


Not sure what a drifting coaster is but it looks cool!


Premier Rides.


The show is about to open... Oh the excitement!

Man TPR is starting to sound incredibly official now! I'd think the drifting coaster would be like the Mack e-motion coaster as several people have said but could be incorporate something more like a spinning coaster to accomplish the drifting sensation. Essentially what I'm thinking is if the center of rotation is located near the front of a long car then the car would seem to slide around turns, kind of like a suspended coaster but on a different axis. Guess we'll see once everyone gets back with more detailed reports.

I really want to go to the show one day.


Also I should point out... This is the first itme I ever heard of M&V! I mean, I heard of fireball and the boardwalk bullet, but this is the first time I heard they weren't built by one of the other more well known companies! Who are they, when did they surface, and how good are they in comparison to other companies?




And kudos to TPR for making such a magor appearance!



EDIT - Oh my gosh! Am I reading that sign right?! Are all those parks getting a looping waterslide?!


Including Noah's Ark in Wisconsin Dells?!


Jeez!!! Every time I start rethinking about going on the mid america trip for financial reasons something like this pops up


Hmmm... I should rethink going on it more often!
