New rides announced
Following successful installations in London (pictured) and Hamburg, the Swiss manufacturer ABC is to supply a freefall tower to Merlin Entertainments’ Edinburgh Dungeon. A similar ride, but with a very different theme, will go to Hunderfossen near Lillehammer in Norway.In fact, ABC has quite a bit of work for next season in Scandinavia. Konge Parken in Stavanger, another Norwegian park, will install an interactive boat ride, while Djurs Sommerland in Denmark is in line for a children’s flume ride. A mini flume will also go to Sea Life Weymouth, England, as part of its continued outdoor expansion.
Meanwhile ABC has recently shipped its first ever ride to China. The Tilt Tower attraction is destined for the same shopping mall project in Qingdao as the Vekoma family coaster mentioned elsewhere on this page.
