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.
