SUPPLIER UPDATE:


MONDIAL


As well as installing two new WindSeeker rides this season in the United States (at Carowinds in North Carolina and Kings Dominion in Virginia), the Dutch ride manufacturer Mondial has introduced two variations on a theme in Europe. The Turbine is a new propeller ride standing a whopping 62-metres tall. Like the latest generation of Mondial’s Capriolo, it features a gondola that rotates on a horizontal axis in addition somersaulting as the main arm turns – as well as a fan above each set of riders. Two 10-seater gondolas are supplied, one attached to either end of the massive arm, providing a relatively high capacity for an extreme attraction such as this. The first version of the ride was supplied this summer to a consortium of Dutch/showmen trading as Turbine Bvba, and a further two have since gone to Dutch showman Remco Kriek and German fairground operator Ahrend (pictured here). All three are expected to make appearances in Germany. Meanwhile Mondial has updated its giant portable pendulum ride, the Mistral, with the addition of outward-facing seats. Ten-pairs of seats are provided, attached to a claw that swings over 46-metres high – a breathtaking ride experience. The first unit, named Artistico, was delivered earlier this season to the German showman Lutz Köhrmann.
