Our most important and also most demanding market are the big coasters world-wide.
Outdoor activities like bungee jumping or paragliding have steadily increased the ‚kick level‘ of many visitors to amusement parks. All the time, park enthusiasts and internet panels keep on demanding faster, higher and more breathtaking attractions. Acceleration and speed are the decisive factors today, inevitably linked to the commercial success of an amusement park.
Heuristic construction methods are all water under the bridge. However, CAD is not the only tools you need when designing a new attraction for a theme park. Already during the design phase, computer simulation is required to prove that the forces and accelerations will not overstrain the passengers.
Absolute top priority is the passenger’s safety. Number two is long-term reliability: For 400.000 starts per season, the maximum error ratio is 10 ppm (one launch failure per 100.000 shots).
Small wonder that six out of the seven world’s top coasters use InTraSys technology.
