MMoscow’s Dream Island has completed the installation of the Flight in the Tunnel rollercoaster in the park’s new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle zone
The Flight in the Tunnel is been manufactured by thrill ride design and manufacture specialists, Intamin.
The immersive rollercoaster takes thrill seekers on a high-speed journey through New York’s underground tunnels, in what is said to be one of the most extreme attractions in the new themed zone.
The rollercoaster hurtles down a 500-metre track of loops, turns and free falls, reaching heights of 24 metres. At a speed of 80kph, riders will fall into a dead loop, where they will be greeted by lighting and sound effects.
Dream Island’s technical director, Ivan Shol, said: “At Dream Island, we primarily focus on using the latest trends – such as interactivity, multimedia content, VR technology.
“This will allow guests not only to enjoy the speed, dead loops and technical components of the rides, but also be transported to the fairy tale world, where each of us dreamed of visiting in childhood.”
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed zone is due to be completed in October. As well as the Flight in the Tunnel, the area will be home to a drop tower ride and the Hammer of Doom.
