S&S launches new rides in China

S&S Worldwide is building two new compressed air launch coasters and several tower rides for 2010 delivery to China.

The two coasters are for OCT parks in Beijing and Shenzhen. With riders seated four abreast in new-style trains (as seen here), they will launch from zero to 84 mph within two seconds. Considered to be very aggressive rides, they measure 2,789ft long and 197ft tall, with underwater tunnels 300ft long. Each includes a section where the train is sideways and riders experience weightlessness.
