Searching for information about an old S&S coaster concept

Postby coastered » Tue Apr 09, 2019 9:28 am



I think a lot of you know about Tranan @ Skara Sommerland in Sweden.
This is an S&S Free-Fly coaster opened for the public in 2009.
This is a very fun coaster for the whole family.

I can remember S&S had in the same time this concept debuted on the internet, a much more extreme version of the same concept. When I am right, that coaster was more of a thrillcoaster, with a different layout including steep drops and probably real inversions.

Does anyone of you have more information about that extreme free fly concept? Like artwork and video's?
I can't find anything about it on the internet now.

I remember watching it in one of Robb’s IAAPA reports. It looked stunning and i’m sad,it never came to fruition. And this is a concept I have always dreamt of too.

There was a video at one point.

I think instead of making this they channeled their energy towards their 4D Freespins instead. I'm guessing the freespin had less issues than something like this. Regardless I would have loved to ride something like this.
Favourite Coaster: Steel Vengeance
Other Favourites: SkyRush, Storm Chaser, Lightning Run, Magnum XL-200, Voyage, Apollo's Chariot, Phoenix, Outlaw Run, and Storm Runner

Obsessed with S&S Screamin Swings
