S&S Worldwide, a global leader in the manufacturing of vertical and family thrill rides, has announced a new product to its line-up – the Axis Coaster.
Utilising its patented and proven 4D rotating vehicle technology, S&S has reimagined rollercoaster dynamics. Fluid movements are a key feature of the new AXIS rollercoaster, giving riders the feeling of flying, which is unique to the Axis.
The ride rotates around the axis of the track, meaning riders might be positioned above, below or to the side of the track. The coaster is available in custom layouts, so it is suitable for a wide variety of space constraints. It can also be designed as a high-thrill ride or a family friendly coaster.
Preston Perkes, director of administration at S&S, commented: “This ride has been in the works for three 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.”
Josh Hays, executive director of sales at S&S, said: “I am thrilled that we can offer a ride like this to our customers. This is truly an original ride that provides an experience unlike any other to its riders. It’s the kind of ride that people will see on TV and say, ‘I have to ride that!’”
