Yup, feels like Christmas and we're about to see what goodies are coming our way for 2015. Your IAAPA coverage is always stellar. Really looking forward to this year!

 

I'll be really interested to see what GCII has this year. Seems like the company has gone through some huge transitions and is fighting fierce competition, but they make great rides and have some innovative and marketable ideas. I'm surprised they haven't sold one of those economy wooden coaster models yet. At least they've got Starliner.

 

Vekoma seemed like they were in the same boat, though I haven't been keeping up with them.

 

I hope Larson is there too. They've sold a ton of rides in the last couple of years, and I'm sure they have something else new up their sleeves.

Lots of tarp-themed coasters this year. Hyuk yuk yuk...

 

The urban starflyer is really cool! We almost had one built in OKC, but everyone was super skeptical of how it would fit in and work. I told everyone that soon other urban areas would get them and OKC would once again miss out on being ahead of the curve... At least now we'll have something to point to if the concept ever gets revived. As I always say, I'm a big fan of integrating quality ride-based attractions into other types of urban attractions like shopping districts.
