Has anyone know of this new ride system or heard anything about it. Its just a little blurb on intamin site sounds real intresting though.

This 'launched water system' may be useful after a spin on M:TR.

Perhaps this is part of the new water ride coming to SFAg.

Sounds to me like a hydraulic launch on a log flume. U know, this sounds like it could be very, very awesome!

First Drop mentioned this ride as well. It was there described as a launch, followed by a vertical top hat element and a splash. Sounds promissing!

No they didn't say it would be a tophat, just that the track would move up 18 meters vertically. Not straight up like a tophat.

Whitewater west is designing the main attraction that's going to SFAW this year not Intamin.

This does sound like an interesting concept & should give water rides a whole new feel,it's probably gonna be the next best thing since Intamin debutted their reverser tuntable for their flume ride & we all know where that is located don't we? I wonder who in the US will be the first to get this liquid rocket coaster.
