    Intamin Unveils Four New Concepts

    The similarities are obvious. But let us not forget the parks also influence ideas for coaster concepts. We don't have access to behind-the-scenes conversations between manufacturers and parks, most of the time anyway. Nigloland in France asked Mack Rides to build a coaster very similar to...

    You're on point! Mack did hire a young enthusiast coming from the NL2 scene, Stephan Alt. He goes by AltLenny on the internet and created the FVD++ tool if I'm correct. While we're on that topic of passionate young engineers, some shameless self-promotion seems appropriate: I interviewed...

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    You can still see his NL2 work on Youtube :) https://www.youtube.com/user/CoasterLab Quite interesting in fact to watch his early creations, as they foreshadow his current contribution to Intamin's designs

    Vietnam | Vinpearl Thu Thiem | Theme Park

    It's testing footage and we're yet to see if Vekoma further fine-tune vehicle performance. Gotta admit it doesn't look as impressive as in the animation, but that's also because Lech set the standard so high.

    Rank the Intamin Launch Coasters

    Coasters that you want to like, but don't

    Winjas I love the creativity behind the ride. All the tricks, dueling layout and charming Wuze Town scenery. The actual ride dynamic mostly lets me down though.
