Double the Fun on Extreme Engineering’s Cloud Coaster
Extreme Engineering (Booth #3265) introduced new features to its cart-less roller coaster, the Cloud Coaster, which the company debuted last year.
“It’s a Peter Pan moment when you’re flying on one of these, and we’re the pixie dust behind it that makes it happen,” said CEO Jeff Wilson.
New features include an upgraded magnetic breaking system and a tandem kart allowing people to ride together. The latter element, which can double the capacity, came after customer requests for higher volume on its popular zipline-coaster hybrid. “We call it, ‘If you go, I’ll go,’” Wilson said.
The company recently announced the Cloud Coaster now will be jointly distributed by S&S–Sansei Technologies (Booth #2217) through a new partnership.
