B&M 4th Dimension Coasters: coming soon?

Postby David_Saar » Tue Jul 30, 2013 9:57 am

Free fall and rollercoaster are mixed in China and Spain

The world of theme parks and attractions is reinvented every year, parks need to innovate and promote themselves as unique, and this causes a constant evolution up to unimaginable extremes. Coasters’ manufacturers have always competed to offer new and attractive products to parks, getting to evolve dramatically. This sector used military technology in certain extreme acceleration roller coasters, in which a train propelled to high speed in a few seconds.

This is the evolution experienced by this world, which also created the flying coaster: roller coasters in which passengers were not sitting, but looking at the floor in order to increase the thrills on every trip. As the cost of this type of roller coasters is very high, parks will require an investment in the medium term, due to the amount of people that are attracted and the generated profits.

In 2015, a new model of roller coaster is going to mix two types of attractions that, so far, had only been seen in separate amusement parks. In a mixture of free fall rollercoaster through a revolutionary sensor system, the seats are going to be able to move on their own axis in an accurate and coordinated movement during the tour using robotic trains. This way, during the first fall (the highest and vertical) people are going to get a feeling of weightlessness, identical to that is experienced in a free fall attraction.

During the rest of the tour many thrills and G's forces are experienced. The disorientation that is produced by this spectacular attraction to passengers will be one of the most demanded by theme parks. Two theme parks, World Joyland (China) and Parque Warner Madrid (Spain), are going to build a new coaster prototype that will provide exciting sensations.

Interesting. The 4d coaster has already been around for a while though, made by S&S Arrow. It would be great to have a B&M version though.

I don't see the 4D design being implemented by B&M anytime soon, at the earliest it could be 2015 but I highly doubt that, the problem in my mind with a 4D B&M is that it most likely is going to be ridiculously expensive, sure they can base the train design on the Wing Coaster train, but even 1 Wing Coaater train is expensive then ontop of that the price of modifying the wings can rotate.
4D coasters aren't cheap and B&M coaster aren't cheap, so put the two together it's logical to except this would be the most expensive B&M model.

You've got right on there, Simba. The only reason 4Ds aren't that popular is because of the price. Each 4D built has been in excess of $30 million. Putting that and the already expensive price-tag of B&Ms together and that is one expensive ride that almost no-where will be able to afford.
