Ronbotics out of business (for real this time)

Thursday, October 31, 2002 7:28 PM

The manufacturer of the Coasterider X-Press (featuring 6 on-ride videos of CP coasters) has ceased operations. Back in February, I was given misinformation that they were closed, but I can confirm this it this time personally - a co-worker in Cleveland and I are trying to get our 2 rides working again without the help of the manufacturer. I cannot find an online link for this yet (our business is not covered very well by the media).

Their simulators were and are plagued with problems, to the point that a class-action lawsuit was being contemplated at one time. I really wish they would have made a better ride - I think it had potential. Ride 'em while you can.

I've only ridden 1 of the Ronbotics coaster simulators.

The unit I experienced had a mostion base that seriously listed to the left, and that was before I sat down! :) It's a unique novelty in the coaster off-season, but for $2.20 (gotta love keycard operated game pricing) it didn't seem to be worth all that. I recall I did derive much laughter out of the machine for just how unrealistic the simulation was.
