    I'm sure there's still one operating the travelling industry and Ankapark bought one.

    Yeah I think there is - I meant that I kinda feel this concept could have been pushed. There was a gap in the market back when this came out.
    Looks brutal tho :O

    Can we talk about how strange the layout and restraints for this cancelled Motocoaster model are?

    That layout looks pretty good actually, the full-body restraints look terrible though

    I can just about cope the B&M vest restraints, I’m not really sure what to think of the ones on that concept...

    The way your legs are tucked in but theres only a bit supporting them up also looks really uncomforable.

    I think permanent sideways seats would interesting. We've obviously seen a lot go backwards or spin, but never really a stationary sideways seat (kind of like a surfing position, but seated). I have found on spinning roller coasters that a sideways orientation is a great change of pace (vertical loops taken sideways are really funky and awesome). I can definitely see a surfing themed ride with sideways seats, and I feel like there's a lot of potential there.

    Still under-developed I guess haha. And I meant more on a true, thrilling coaster. That appears to be a small-scale indoor coaster.

    That sounds dreadful, everyone will be craning their necks for the whole ride to see where they are going!
    I get your point about loops though, sometimes I deliberately look to the side on a loop to enjoy watching the world do a 360.

    I suppose that is a good point about craning their necks. I just love the different sensations that a rotated seat gives.
