Extreme Engineering, a leading adventure attractions company, has announced its new Cloud Coaster Storm suspended coaster, which offers double the speed, thrills and capacity of the previous product.
The new roller coaster track and side by side ride vehicle allows riders to sit together as they soar over the ground below. The new Poseidon coaster track provides more aggressive configurations, leading to faster speeds, sharper turns and steeper drops.
Faster ride with increased capacity
“No more riding solo,” says Phil Wilson, Executive Vice President with Extreme Engineering. “Family experiences are meant to be shared. Our Cloud Coaster Storm allows for guests to ride together on the new side-by-side ride vehicle.”
This new product takes Extreme Engineering’s enhanced technology from the award-winning Cloud Coaster design and combines it with a brand new track, ride vehicle and improved rider management system. This leads to a faster ride with an increased capacity. The coaster can cater to 700 people per hour, depending on the configuration of the track layout.
Operators can choose the experience they want to provide with different theming, as the coaster immerses guests into new worlds. Lighting and sound are also available within the ride vehicle’s design.
“The Cloud Coaster Storm is incredibly versatile. It can be configured as a suspended dark ride, people mover or interactive coaster. We are already working with industry partners, scaling the coaster for their specific needs,” says Wilson.
Extreme Engineering’s technology means the Cloud Coaster Storm is lightweight and fast. In addition, it is a sustainable option thanks to the low power consumption and patented passive braking system, trolley and ride vehicle, designed to keep maintenance and operational costs down.
“We are excited to offer the latest coaster design from Extreme Engineering to the industry. It has been over a year in the design phase, including gathering great feedback from our customers,” adds Wilson.
Last year, Extreme Engineering provided a Cloud Coaster at Vinpearl Land Phú Quốc in Vietnam.
