    Manufacturers' 'Breakthrough' Coaster

    It seems as if companies such as B&M, Intamin, Vekoma and S&S have been around forever, it's hard to imagine what the industry would look like without them. I've decided to go back and discover what individual coaster put these companies on the map and why they still have influence in today's...

    Battle of the beyond-vertical drop coasters; Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter vs S&S El Loco

    Hi guys. In 2003, the beyond-vertical drop coaster battle began when Gerstlauer opened their first Euro-Fighter model in the form of Vild-Svinet at Bon-Bon Land, which had a 97 degree (I think?) drop. The model began flying off the shelves, and Gerstlauer began to make the models steeper and...

    Six Flags Discovery Kingdom | Batman: The Ride | S&S 4D Free Spin

    So it would seem that Discovery Kingdom is receiving a 4D Free Spin from S&S next year: Should be a nice fit for the park, in my opinion! Also, it's interesting to see them go back to the old Batman branding like the prototype at Fiesta Texas had!

    Holovis and S&S unveil 'Immersive Elevator MediaCoaster' concept

    source I love stuff like this! Reminds me of the roller coaster Dynamic Attractions offer, but this is much more simpler and confined to the elevator lift. It's almost like a pre-show but once it's finished you immediately enter the first drop! The gothic concept art needs to happen too...
