Martin's Fantasy Island announced the purchase of a new Zamperla spinning coaster as part of a $2 million plus capital improvement plan for the 2005 season. It replaces the Wildcat.

Zamperla makes spinners as well? Is it simply zig zag with spinning cars or a new design? Their website doesn't have anything about spinning coasters.

Zamperla has taken over the Reverchon line of spinning mice - it's the exact same layout; however they have made a major modification to the restraint. Rather than coming down over your head it is now a traditional lap bar - I have been told it will make the laterals much more bareable on the upper body.

Thanks for the information. Zamperla is starting to have quite a big hold on the markets.

It helps to have a salesperson like Mark Rosenzweig. He could sell ice to eskimos -- or TOGOs to the Japanese, you might say ;)

Seems kind of stupid to me since Sea Breeze in Richester just added a spinning coaster as did the park in Erie, PA and they are both only about an hour or so away-

Are you sure that this is a LICENSED change to the Reverchon line... due to the legal system in Italy, those Italian ride MFGS are NOTORIOUS for outright clones of many rides. Fabbri is by far the biggest offender in this catigory.
