IAAPA 2017 Trade Show LIVE Updates from TPR!


Recommended Posts

Has that M&V out-and-back been built yet anywhere? I really like that layout especially because it seems to be reintroducing the minimalistic layout that CCI introduced with Shivering Timbers.

 

It seems to be a catalog item that has small layout options as posted on TPR before

If you get all bent out of shape and filled with fanboy rage when someone calls it a coaster even though you don't think it's a coaster then you need to go get laid.

...or at least stop reading TPR.

Oh but I thought having the highest coaster count guaranteed you were going to get laid?

 

The more pictures I see of that Time Traveler train, the more I love it. I didn't know it lit up like that, but it's great!

 

Also, I'm a bit confused by the pictures of the Twisted Cyclone train. Maybe I'm being dumb, but why do the seats look off-kilter from the front? Is the front unattached from the first row? Those trains look beautiful too.

 

Anyone know if we will get to see Steel Vengeance trains at IAPPA?

 

Thanks for even more awesome footage!

I had assumed it was the zero car, like most B&M trains have.

This is such an awesome off-season re-charge. I'm still so fascinated with Intamin's booth and whatever Sandor has cookin'. Nothing will change. haha On the wooden coaster side, M&V + GG = Awesome. The sesame street coaster train is something.

 

Fresh mini donuts are the best. Tiny Tom Donuts finally made it into Wonderland after decades of being a fair staple. Watching those machines as a kid was like oily, sugary magic haha

You assume correctly. Rocky Mountain's trains have a zero / pilot car in the front. The twisted, off-kilter train makes for a fun photo op, they had the same setup with Twisted Colossus last year and Goliath the year before.

I was wondering if there was anything there at this year's IAAPA, that surprised you?

That you weren't expecting to see? Or discover?

 

P.S. It all looks so amazing, there. Some of the displays are really great-looking.

 

p.p.s. I'll pass on SkySled.
