I've never seen anything like this before. It is as if Anton was attacked by a cobra and this is what came out. Your thoughts?

If you want to see some other crazy coaster types, try visiting PAX's website. I've got it bookmarked. They have what looks to be an Impulse type coaster (inverted) with a bunnyhill and a loop...Sick!

Wow, that is freaky looking, in a cool kinda way. At first glance I thought it was a skate board ramp gone nutty. I suspect that there is sheetmetal covering Anton style track.

What is PAX's website? Is it RCT2 combatible stuff?

Teckno where did you see the Impulse type coaster (inverted) with a bunnyhill and a loop. I can;t find it on the loop. That coaster looks cool, it makes it stand out, but look at the groumd its all dead grass, thats too bad. Anyway look at this other coaster they made: http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1929.htm
. A very tight space.

Those are some wild lookin' designs! But, if you notice, it says on their page specifically "sertified" for use in Europe. I think the wild factor of them would be illegal outside Europe and the Persian Gulf (where it seems they have the most installations).

I don't think so... if you look in the About Company pages, you'll see several references to American certifications. Also, the Texas State Fair was slated for a Pax shuttle until the ride was cancelled due to export complications (refer here

Willdog, this is what he was talking about: http://www.pax.ru/eng/products/index.htm

Whoa, That looks really cool, At first i was like where is the Rails, but you have to look closer.The US should get something like that. The Jungle ride looks asweome too but i probably be better if it had corkscrews or something.

Forget about the coasters, check out their Beer Wheel (under wheels-resturants)!

here is the direct link, its called Asteroid. I'd love to see them make something for the US. even their regular invert looks sick!

Their "Wild Train" Coasters are absolutely phantastic!http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1354.htm?Picture=4
They look and ride like a Vekoma Rollerskater after a few Vodkas! Steep drops, highly banked turns and a certain "in your face" approach make these rides great fun.
I haven´t seen this indoor ride before. It looks very nicely themed.
I am curious what their "Formula 1" wild mouse hybrids will be like.

Count me in for the beer wheel.
of course, I'm not a big fan of ferris wheels, so I'll have to make an exception for this one.
where do I sign up?

They have the beer wheel at Duff Gardens :)
Honestly though, their restraint system for their looping coasters looks very painful, as it is a horsecollar with cheap metal bars coming out of the bottom of each end, covered with styrofoam. *** Edited 9/7/2004 2:54:44 PM UTC by Turbo***

Thanks Dan. That beer ferris wheel sounds awsome. I would love to ride that

We came close to getting one in the US in the last few years. The TX State Fair had announced a permanent installation of the version of the shuttle with the bunny hop but it never materialized.

Talking about the first pic that was posted.
Ok that would not look good if that thing would to go to fast for some wild reason and jump the track. EEEK
