EAS Rome 2010 Polin Waterparks and Pool

Systems The latest product to be added to the Polin range is the King Cobra attraction, themed, as the name implies, on a cobra snake and providing a spectacular waterslide experience. The first version is due for installation in a new waterpark in the Ukraine, according to Baris Pakis, who also informed InterPark that another development the company is currently working on is a 5D cinema attraction with Kraftwerk for waterparks, which is due to be available around March 2011.

Standard sets will feature from eight to 14

vehicles, depending on the size of track. C and S is also currently completing two

projects for customers in Russia, both FECs, one of which is a large bumper car track for 18 medium size vehicles and another a medium size track for eight cars, while it is also working on two dark ride projects on behalf of Zamperla for the Far East. “We are definitely not at 2007 or 2008 levels

of business,” noted Bellotti, “and don’t expect to get back to those levels quickly. We don’t have big expectations for 2011 either; business is hard at the moment.”

C and S Italian bumper car specialist C and S introduced two new medium size vehicles at EAS, one in the shape of a Ferrari and the other a Lamborghini. “The vehicles will go together in what we are

calling a GT track with an island in the middle to create a circuit,” said the company’s Giancarlo Bellotti. “There will be a mixture of the two models in a set and we are trying to give to the bumper car a feeling of a children’s ride where the game is in the racing more than the bumping. So far we have made two sets for FEC customers in the Middle East.”

Manufacturing Various new developments were reported by Vekoma during EAS, including the first version of a new junior coaster which will debut at Drayton Manor Theme Park in the UK in March 2011 and a new motorbike launch coaster using a new linear LSM system. The company is working on several custom designed coasters at present, along with the

up now and they are fond of FECs and indoor venues. And they have the money to invest too.” Vekoma is also working on a junior coaster

and a suspended coaster at the new Legoland Florida park, where it is rebuilding the former ride with Lego theming in addition to doing all the modifications and a new train on this attraction.

Image + Digital BV Ride photography specialist Image + Digital continues to develop new technologies and systems to maintain its standing as one of the leaders in its field. Among the company’s latest innovations is

the Nova-3D ride photography system, which generates and stores 3D images which are then displayed on specially produced 3D monitors, allowing park guests to view real 3D photographs without the need to wear 3D glasses – and then, of course, purchase them, either by email, on CD or in printed form.
