New glorious orient theme park showcases Vekoma’s fighter jet coaster

Vekoma Rides’ new coaster has now launched
Vekoma Rides’ next generation Fighter Jet rollercoaster is showcased at Fantawild Group’ newly opened Glorious Orient theme park in Ganzhou, China.

Themed around an aircraft carrier take-off, the coaster features four fighter jet trains with a maximum of eight passengers per train, and can reach a top speed of 97 kilometres per hour.

The ride starts when a beautiful day on the majestic aircraft carrier is disrupted by an emergency radio call: “code red, harbour breached! Scramble fighters”.

Following a ‘power launch’ that reaches speeds of 97 kilometres per hour in just three seconds, riders experience several ‘duelling train effects,’ five ‘breathtaking airtime moments’ and four inversions.

The concept for the Fighter Jet coaster was created by the Fantawild design team, who presented the idea of an aircraft carrier launch type experience and asked Vekoma if they could design something that would simulate the flight of a fighter jet being launched from a carrier. Vekoma designers tried to include as many direction changes and force changes as possible to simulate a ‘dog fight’ - two fighter jets battling in the sky.
