So the S&S launcher that was proposed about 2 years ago for Sun Tzu Cultural Park in Guangrao China is now confirmed to be happening. Apparently the track was manufactured a while ago and was in storage. This layout looks amazing! I really wish S&S would build some more launchers here in the states.

Is it one of their 4-across trains again?

Yes like Bullet, Extreme Rusher, and OCT Thrust at the Happy Valley parks.

Should be a neat ride. I've always been really curious about the white and blue one that has the 180 twist up the tophat and then dives almost straight down. S&S was doing the wonky hills on these things way before RMC did it.

The more extreme and improved version of "Storm Runner" because there will be a wave turn that intrigues me like we may see a combo of wicked snake turns!

Awesome to see another S&S launcher being built! Too bad it's again in China. I want to see some popping up in the western world. Because these rides are awesome!

Indeed, like US and UK coaster fanatics have been saying for ages that they want "Megalites" in their countries! I'm happy to see their excitement!

Guess what's finally gone vertical. It's a bit hard to see behind the statues but it seems to be going up fast!

Schilke designed those too. I forget which video it is, but he talks about it on some interview on youtube if you're interested.


I'm excited for this. Hopefully it's air launch and we can get some more close by! :D :D :D

Wave Turn started growing on me after seeing the same element on Steel Vengeance! :D

The ride's station reminds me of NL2's default one!

I dunno man, Schilke seems to call dive loops and immelmans "raven turns." I can totally see the distinction when applied to 4d coasters or flyers, there is very little roll, but whatever, its a cool name. Also, I guess s humps or whatever are now corkscrews... That seems like a bit too much Allan, go take a ski day, corkscrews normally invert haha. Anyway, ride looks amazing, I'm curious as to how the shaping on the diving condor turn will be, hoping for something with either stall action or a pop of air at the top ala Railblazer.

^ I presume that he still finds X (now X2) to be his greatest design. He likes using his own terms! :)

This looks great so far! Love the custom layout! We need some of these rides outside Asia!

God these new launched coasters from S&S have intrigued me so much over the past decade. They're so goofy looking. Looks like an awesome ride

This looks definitely like a great ride! How do we get these awesome things to Europe and America?

I am not sure how well they hold up though. If you look at POV's of Extreme Rusher and Bullet Coaster you can see how much the trains rattle. Hopefully it's just the camera and the ride is actually smooth.

^ Which do you think is better, the rattle on an Arrow or on a S&S layout? I may like such unusual moments on those twisty sections.
