Coming off a Best New Coaster Golden Ticket win in 2019, S&S – Sansei Technologies has taken years of innovation and engineered a dramatic new concept in roller coasters. Dubbed Axis, this new genre of steel coasters has hints of previous creations threaded into its core but feels like nothing ever manufactured to date. Top brass is beaming at the monumental leap in coaster design — and they should be. Axis is impressive in multiple ways.
“It has been part of a concept we’ve had for quite a while. This last development has been going on for about two and a half years,” said Merin Swasey, project development manager, S&S. “Today’s computer-aided design and engineering analysis tools enable us to do something like this particular coaster. It’s a whole new concept.”
A test track of several hundred feet adjacent to company headquarters in Utah has seen the concept come to life, meeting every expectation and validating each calculation. S&S can boast it is now proven.
