Intamin... 1 or 2?

Saturday, November 17, 2001 3:20 PM
I was just wondering if the Intamin AG of Switzerland is the same one as the Intamin from the US.  Which one designed, lets say, SROS or Millenium Force?

I think that the Swiss are masters of engineering.  Not only have they bought us smooth, fast, and innovative coasters, but things such as Chairlifts in our parks and so on.

Actually, he's reffering to Intamin Ltd of Millersville, MD (The same location of Premier Rides).

Yes, same company, but the Intamin Ltd. headquarters specializes in water rides.

I think AG is the Swiss way of saying INC.

It's actually pretty remarkable all the things Intamin have given to parks over the past few years..thinking back to my first trip to CP in 1987 at age 7 where my first ride was the classic Intamin 1st Gen Drop ride, Demon Drop which I still remember to this day (stuck at the top for 15 minutes....) Intamin has given us superb Hypers (the SROS series), the World's first Giga (MF), the Impulse series (LG, SUE, V2) and an excellent series of Drop Towers and apparently their full circuit inverts aren't too shabby either. A top company to be sure!

The office in the US is a division location, so they can have reps closer to their business.  All large companies do this.

Your all going to hate to know where I live. Millersville, MD. I pass by the business complex that has the Intamin Co. sign every time I go to the grocery store. Sometimes I come home from SFA from riding S:ROS and then pass by the Intamin sign while I get gas on my way home. Problem is, I drove by that complex with Intamin Fan and we could not find their office!

Tolian,

Yes, Intamin did design and build the Eiffel Towers at Kings Island and Kings Dominion.

On PKI's website, it said Intamin, Switzerland, and Zurich designed PKI Eiffel Tower.

On PKD's site, it said Intamin (not Switzerland, Zurich) designed PKD Eiffel Tower. Correct me if I am wrong.

No, there aren't any other Intamin Eiffel Towers anywhere in the whole world, just PKI's and PKD's.

Although, Intamin built SFoT and SFMM's observation towers before they build the Eiffel Towers for KI and KD, but SFoT's and SFMM's aren't Intamin Eiffel Towers.

You know what else is swiss?  B&M and Giovanola.  How strange that 3 top of the line coaster companies are all based in the same country.  Yes.  I thought about the companies here in the us.  But not all of them are as good as these dudes.  I guess people in switzerland are smarter than us.  LOL.
