Mack GmbH/Intamin Collaboration?

Sunday, October 28, 2001 1:02 PM
Maybe it's just me, but this ride, http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery369.htm?Picture=2, seems like it is fabricated from Intamin triangle truss track.  Perhaps it's just my eyes decieving me, but it is astonishingly similar.  However, on RCDB it is credited to Mack GmbH, and the rolling stock is obviously not intamin.  Could someone clarify this?

That is most definitely Intamin track!  That coaster probably has the same story as Silver Star.  Mack designed it, but B&M is fabricating the track.

I want to ride that. Looks great the way it jumps around the mall!

Looks to me like Mack could have done the trains and the design while intamin did the fabricating...

This coaster dates back to the days when Intamin was acting as a sales agent for Mack, as well as Schwarzkopf ,Von Roll and several other European and American ride manufacturers. This is before Intamin started building rides themselves, so I'd say it's a Mack.
