I think there's been a few hints from companies that they have something to show off this year.

- Fabbri might be showing off more details on this contraption...



- Disneyland Paris (as mentioned in the other thread) have a conference to announce future projects (it was a separately ticketed event).

- JoraVision are due to show off some concept work for some new projects, including the new Vekoma for Energylandia.


I'm not predicting any coasters to be announced as that tends to be reserved for the larger Orlando event but we might see a few smaller European parks share some news. News doesn't typically come out from this event but it keeps expanding so who knows.

I choose to believe that the Fabbri video is just a mismash demonstrator of technologies they're working on. The launch, high-speed brakes, and vertical lift are obvious candidates for stuff they've designed with the purpose of using in other coaster layouts. Maybe the demonstrator also includes the cars or the block brake system for multiple car operations. It seems like they want to showcase these few elements to show customers what they are capable of, and decided the easiest way to display them all was to make a mockup coaster layout featuring them all and barely anything else.

Either that, or it was bring-your-kid-to-work day at Fabbri HQ.

b&m surf coaster, whatever that is 🤷‍♂️
Too bad B&M isn't even attending IAAPA Europe - and hasn't done so for the past few years 🤷‍♂️

I will be attending the show for the third consecutive year :)

Some planning I drafted so far:
