S &S debuts new coaster

S&S Worldwide, an American roller coaster manufacturer, has announced the launch of a new roller coaster.

Called the Axis Coaster, the new ride uses patented 4D rotating vehicle technology, that rotates riders around the track to make them feel like they're flying.

It features customisable layouts that can be adapted to suit space restrictions and can even be configured as either a thrill ride or a family-friendly coaster.

Preston Perkes, director of Administration at S&S, said: "This ride has been in the works for 3 years now. It started as a concept from one of our employees and evolved to what we are bringing to the market today."

"There are things you can do on this coaster that you can’t do on any other ride," Perkes added.

Josh Hays, executive director of Sales at S&S, said: “This is truly an original ride that provides an experience unlike any other to its riders. Axis rotates around the axis of the track. That means that the rider could be above the track, below the track or swinging out to either side. And although riders will be surprised by the way the train twists and turns, engineers at S&S have ensured that the vehicle will do exactly what it is designed to do."

The Axis Coaster made it's official debut at the IAAPA trade show in Orlando, Florida, in November.
