NEWS: Premier Rides awarded Trans Studio contract

Postby jedimaster1227 » Wed Nov 10, 2010 1:00 pm

Premier Rides has sent us a press release regarding their latest contract for a new signature launched coaster for the Trans Studio Theme Park in Indonesia.

Trans Studio announced Premier Rides has been selected to build the signature attraction for the new Trans Studio Theme Park at Bundung Supermal in Indonesia. Premier was chosen after completing an exhaustive competitive search. This will be the first launch coaster in Indonesia using a magnetic system and the train will travel forward and backwards.

When the ride starts, the sleek train accelerates, reaching its maximum speed in just over two seconds. During the launch, riders will experience a maximum of one G when pushed back in their seats. After the train leaves the station it immediately shoots up, almost vertically into an inverted top hat element. The riders are inverted and race down the second half of the top hat element. For a second time the train reaches maximum before it executes a 180 degree turn to the right with riders shooting up a tower, looking straight up at the sky and experiencing an almost zero G condition. Just before the track ends, the train comes to a stop and is accelerated backwards through the entire course of the ride. Only when the train comes to a stop in the station can the riders catch their breath.

Budiman Wijaya, Director of Trans Studio, commented on the quality of Premier’s products: “We were very impressed with the quality and reliability of Premier’s work when we recently visited “Revenge of the Mummy”™ at Universal Studios Singapore. We especially like the dedication shown by Premier’s personnel working and meeting all of the client’s goals.”

Wijaya adds, “Our mall project will be one of our nation’s most exciting destinations and we have chosen Premier’s coaster to assure we are offering the best available product to our guests.”

Jim Seay, president of Premier Rides noted “It is an incredible honor for Premier being selected for the Trans Studio project. Premier has invested a significant effort expanding into the Asian market which we see as both exciting and dynamic. Indonesia’s economy is strong and we are honored to be working with one of the leading and most respected companies in the region.”

It seems like every coaster these days is launched or has a launch. Sounds similar to Mr. Freeze. Like a mini-Freeze. lol

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

Great to see this kind of launcher still being built, even if it is in Indonesia.
Been you to have any spike, man?

I'm not really feelin the turn after the top hat. I feel like if its gonna have a turnaround element it needs to be an overbanked turn. Cough Cough Intimidator 305!

GREAT to see a Mr. Freeze-ish Premire coming in! The one in Texas blew me away, and the backwards launch was one of the scariest/coolest moments of any coaster I've been on. The overbank on Freeze was DAMN forceful, so if there's actually a 305-ish turn, that'd be crazy.

I'm sure this ride will look stunning; even though this looks like a very rough rendering.

Riders will experience a maximum of one G when pushed back in their seats?

One linear G during launch, not vertical G turing the ride.

Awesome! I am a huge Premier fan, so I'm glad to see that they are putting more and more projects out into the world.

I wonder what the trains for this coaster will look like...do they still make the Mr. Freeze-style cars (which I love)?

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!
