Don't believe they are in the portable ride market anymore.

Both those Intamins look incredible.

For the one at Asterix, experiencing a beyond vertical drop in the back with such a long train should be a real treat. Has the longest train for a beyond vertical drop so far been the 3 car ones on the Intamin Blitz coasters? It'll be interesting getting one of those 3 part launches and a full layout to go with it.

The coaster at Walibi Belgium looks like Expedition GeForce mixed with an RMC and that's perfectly fine by me. I like how Intamin appears to be borrowing those awesome wave turns from RMCs.

It seems like Intamin (and/or other parks) are noticing how much people love these new RMCs and are doing something about it. All it takes is a park with the budget and the want to make it happen! Glad they're coming through.

While I love those two Intamins, I cannot feel like they severely knocked off every single RMC element. The only two original element I see of those two coasters is the "Non inverting cobra roll" and the quick switch track, while every other element is from RMC, using what is arguably, their signature elements which didn't exist before RMC came along. At least try to be creative and do something different. Meanwhile, I do feel at the same time I'm glad other manufacturers are taking note of RMC and re-using their element to make a more intense and exciting ride. It just feels like they're the cheater of a school test and copying the answer from the smarter kid (RMC).

Maybe. But I don't see how that's a bad thing in any way. We get to benefit from it! I honestly wish B&M would "copy," and be influenced by RMC designs too! Besides, even if the elements are similar or the same, they feel completely different between manufacturers. The trains, track, seats, restraints, angles, etc. are all different and make for a distinct difference.

Here's Zierer's booth! They're showing off that fun French coaster with the horse and stagecoach seats!

Of course, no IAAPA Expo would be complete without a credit on the show floor! This one is going to Jenkinson's Boardwalk in New Jersey, and it's pretty fun!
