Extreme Engineering Introduces Dual Harness Cloud Coaster, Wins Award at the 2016 IAAPA Attractions Expo

November 28, 2016 No Comments

Extreme Engineering debuted a dual harness version of its cart-less coaster, the Cloud Coaster, that it introduced last year, and earned First Place Best Exhibit 1,201 square feet or larger at IAAPA 2016.

CEO Jeff Wilson called the new version an example of their focus on family-friendly guest experiences.   A parent can go with a child or two hesitant riders (“If you go, I’ll go.”) can jointly experience the triple sensation of flying, zip lining and rocketing down a roller coaster.  The new version of the Cloud Coaster can handle up to 240 people an hour, doubling the volume on the popular zipline-coaster hybrid.

Wilson also pointed out that the first Cloud Coasters have been operating since May and the only repair required was a part that was less than $5.  The rides operate on regular 110 volt circuits, and the company currently has 12 projects under construction.

At the 2016 IAAPA Attractions Expo,  Extreme Engineering won First Place, Best Exhibit, 1,201 square feet and larger.
