Found out about this new-ish company earlier, and have been looking at some of their attractions, which are insane! Check out the Stormforce 20 for instance:

It looks like an ABC Rides Tourbillon on steroids!

Looks like the same 'load while others are riding' concept Intamin used in their triple and double ferris wheels, but with a copyright infringing version of the Tourbillion lol.

Looks hella expensive and kinda pointless for how much room it takes up. Doesn't look like it does much of anything special to take advantage of the differences. I was kinda expecting the central arm to spin or the gondola to also swing back and forth like a Disk-o (before I noticed it had another gondola). It might as well be 2 separate Tourbillons AFAIK.
Oh baby baby does she take a piece of lime for the drink that Imma buy her- Oh wait this song isn't mine.

There's also the Air Loop coaster, which is essentially a Gerstaluer SkyFly/Roller on steroids:

That's certainly bizarre. Everything looks like an existing product but amped up a bit.

Another concept recently popped up on RES's website and it looks like a giant Intamin Half-pipe.

Could be a fun ride if it's going all the way to the top.
