Are there any new prototypes in development?

I was just wondering considering since i looked up at the vekoma thing on the rollback, i know this was a few years ago. I saw that they were working on a tilting platform coaster, or somthing like that. I also heard like maybe one or two were built, from something i read somewhere. I was just wondering are there, any other prototypes that will maybe make a debut soon?

I really like the Intamin ball coaster and it seems close to coming through. Have any other companies such as S&S still coming through with more ideas? I know they are working hard with Arrow developers to put the 4-D back on the map, but how close is that? Also they have the Screaming Squirell which seems very small right now, with it being out there. Doesnt a park have one, if im not mistaken? I just think that it would be cool to see some new ones again? The 90s brought us a ton, what can we get now?

New prototypes? Why?

Try a new GG coaster and you'll be asking the same question.

Prototype this! Build a woodie.

Less cost, More fun!

Chuck, who would take the dells coasters over all 16 at the point. *** Edited 8/25/2005 6:32:36 AM UTC by Charles Nungester***

I agree with some new wood, other than the voyage and the GrAdv one, i still would love to see one at the point. I couldnt agree more, in that department, wood is a dying breed, but what else can be done with that as well as steel?

Orlando area news is reporting it'll be opening at old Town, Kissimmee, *by* Summer '06. Old Town's website says nothing about it (no surprise there, LOL), nor does rcdb....yet! ;)

Although I guess this is a bit past the "development" stage...seeing it on TV was *sweet*... :)
