China’s first woodie

New ride rises in Shanghai

Martin & Vleminckx Rides LLC (MVR) is currently building the first wooden rollercoaster in China at Happy Valley Shanghai.

MVR has sold the ride to park owner OCT and sub-contracted the Gravity Group for the design and engineering. When it is finished, the new coaster will be 108ft tall with 3,819ft of track. When completed in 2009 it will operate with two Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters trains comprising six four-passenger coaches.
