S&S Technologies unveils their latest roller coaster, and it’s called AXIS. Their engineering team reimagined roller coaster dynamics by taking patented 4D rotating vehicle technology and turning it into a thrill ride that delivers deliberate, fluid movements to make it though as if you’re actually flying. Read more for a video and additional information.
This roller coaster boasts track elements that cannot be replicated by any other ride and creates a high-thrill experience, while also being a family-friendly attraction. Why? The ride vehicles freely rotate 360° forward or backward to make every ride a different experience. That’s right, riders can roll from side to side, similar to a fighter jet performing barrel rolls. It reaches a maximum speed of 53 mph and 3.5 g-force acceleration.
