NEWS: Premier Rides awarded Trans Studio contract


Recommended Posts

Premier Rides has sent us a press release regarding their latest contract for a new signature launched coaster for the Trans Studio Theme Park in Indonesia.

 

Trans Studio announced Premier Rides has been selected to build the signature attraction for the new Trans Studio Theme Park at Bundung Supermal in Indonesia. Premier was chosen after completing an exhaustive competitive search. This will be the first launch coaster in Indonesia using a magnetic system and the train will travel forward and backwards.

 

When the ride starts, the sleek train accelerates, reaching its maximum speed in just over two seconds. During the launch, riders will experience a maximum of one G when pushed back in their seats. After the train leaves the station it immediately shoots up, almost vertically into an inverted top hat element. The riders are inverted and race down the second half of the top hat element. For a second time the train reaches maximum before it executes a 180 degree turn to the right with riders shooting up a tower, looking straight up at the sky and experiencing an almost zero G condition. Just before the track ends, the train comes to a stop and is accelerated backwards through the entire course of the ride. Only when the train comes to a stop in the station can the riders catch their breath.

 

Budiman Wijaya, Director of Trans Studio, commented on the quality of Premier’s products: “We were very impressed with the quality and reliability of Premier’s work when we recently visited “Revenge of the Mummy”™ at Universal Studios Singapore. We especially like the dedication shown by Premier’s personnel working and meeting all of the client’s goals.”

 

Wijaya adds, “Our mall project will be one of our nation’s most exciting destinations and we have chosen Premier’s coaster to assure we are offering the best available product to our guests.”

 

Jim Seay, president of Premier Rides noted “It is an incredible honor for Premier being selected for the Trans Studio project. Premier has invested a significant effort expanding into the Asian market which we see as both exciting and dynamic. Indonesia’s economy is strong and we are honored to be working with one of the leading and most respected companies in the region.”

GREAT to see a Mr. Freeze-ish Premire coming in! The one in Texas blew me away, and the backwards launch was one of the scariest/coolest moments of any coaster I've been on. The overbank on Freeze was DAMN forceful, so if there's actually a 305-ish turn, that'd be crazy.

 

I'm sure this ride will look stunning; even though this looks like a very rough rendering.

Awesome! I am a huge Premier fan, so I'm glad to see that they are putting more and more projects out into the world.

 

I wonder what the trains for this coaster will look like...do they still make the Mr. Freeze-style cars (which I love)?

I know someone had just asked this question not to long ago, but I wonder will they use Two loading like Mr.freeze

 

The turn should be fine as long as the banking and the the radius is designed right, I doubting Premier pushed the turn to the max.

 

Intamin designed what KD asked for a huge coaster that stimulated being in a high speed nascar they did just that, Intamin pushed I350 to the max . Just because you so called grey or black out for a split second isn't going to kill you, maybe if you have some unknown pre exsisting condition but you could also fart and die if that's the case. I believe I305 mods if any are for mechanical(wheels) long term maintence(wheels) and money saving(wheels) reason only, not because some enthusiast are claiming they're having near death experiences on it. ooops sorry wrong thread my bad

 

Anyways I loved Mr.Freeze this one should be just as fun could even be better with that low to the ground/over water high speed turnaround.

Guys

 

The location of the new park (Trans Studio) is in a shopping centre which already has a indoor park.

http://www.rcdb.com/5631.htm

 

Does anyone know if this is a completely new park in another area of the mall or if Trans Studio would replace Kota Fantasi which already has a coaster?

 

Also any idea when Trans Studio and it's Premier rides coaster are planning to open?

 

Cheers

Stripgear, Thanks for the update and please keep us updated on future progress of this project.

 

I was there myself on 5th April 2011. Major work was still being carried out.

Seeing the work still left i don't think Trans Studio will have a soft opening in June. I'll post some construction photos from my trip here.

 

Kota Fantasi was having loads of work done too, and only a handful of rides were open.

Luckily for us the roller coaster was running.

They were bringing in loads of new rides due to the strong competition they will be getting from Trans Studio soon.

Also do you know if the coaster was moved to another park or was it demolished?

 

Lastly what was the name of the mini theme park in Grand Mall Bekasi?

 

Sorry so many questions but the information would be very useful thanks.

I really hate to see that Premier has (apparently) abandoned the FOF/Mr. Freeze style trains. They are easily some of the coolest-looking rolling stock I've seen.

 

This new style of train, however? Eh...

I went to Time Zone/Puriland/Dunia Fantasi/Taman Safari Indonesia(Bogor)/Kota Fantasi/Wonderia/Trans Studio Makassar/Taman Remaja/Taman Safari Indonesia(Prigen)/Jawa Timur Park 1/Batu Night Spectacular and Wisata Bahari Lamongan.

Dunia Fantasi, really is nice park indeed.

 

Why don't you do a report for the park index, i'm pretty sure as your living in Bekasi you must have been to Dunia Fantasi

If you don't do it, i'll do one when i have some spare time.
