One of coaster's cars can be see at the booth. Ice Breaker feature the steepest beyond-vertical drop in Florida, and it is Florida's first multi-directional launch coaster. Premier Rides has made some fantastic coasters and we can't wait to see what their 2020 projects end up like! For amusement industry members and fanatics alike, the sight of rows of ride manufacturers and theme park developers is heaven. Sally Dark Rides is showing off their Garfield animated figures for the new ride at one of the Six Flags parks in China! IAAPA attendees have the chance to experience the Nebulaz flat ride from Zamperla, one of Coney Island’s new rides which will open later this year. Vekoma has a booth on the show floor, highlighting their contributions to major parks around the world including Disney's. It isn't IAAPA with a visit to the Intamin booth! A car from Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure is also on display here! B&M's main feature this year is the lead car for Orion, the new giga coaster coming to Kings Island next year. Martin & Vleminckx's booth highlights their work in theme parks, roller coasters, and singing taxidermy. Gerstlauer has a booth on the show floor as well. Rides4U has expanded their compact spinning coaster concept with a new hamster-wheel style coaster car that spins vertically as opposed to horizontally as the car crosses the track. Rocky Mountain Construction debuted the new lead car for Iron Gwazi. This looks great! S&S Sansei's focus this year is on their new Axis Coaster concept. The coaster car sits in the center of the track with the ride seats spinning freely laterally. It will be interesting to see how quickly this new concept shows up in the parks.
