A little design fun
Zamperla, an Italian ride manufacturer, unveiled a beautiful new ride at the IAAPA show few weeks ago. It was a great ride which offered guests the chance to pilot their own paraglider. Each kite is controlled by a push bar which hangs from above. The ride on display at the show was painted bright colours with lots of LED lights. As I eyeballed the ride set up inside the convention hall, my Zamperla contact asked me how I might theme the ride if I had the chance. Lots of ideas immediately came to mind. I promised Michael a concept drawing. Today I had a little fun sketching a new theme for the Windstarz ride. The centre pylon now sports a glider launching catapult and the ride sports a much more mechanical theme.
