Ride manufacturer Chance Morgan, probably most famous for their hyper coasters, has just completed and begun testing a prototype for a very unique flat ride called “Unicoaster” at their factory in Kansas. The ride’s purpose is the simulate a looping roller coaster experience, giving riders control of the intensity through controlling the car’s spinning, while using a smaller area (about the size of an average Tilt-A-Whirl or Scrambler) and much lower cost.
This will certainly be great for small parks, who want a cheap attraction that will appeal to thrill seekers. Hopefully we’ll start seeing these pop up at smaller amusement parks in the near future.
