Premier Service, a division of Premier Rides, best known for their high-tech magnetic launch rollercoasters, has been awarded its largest service contract to date.
The company will be producing a new fleet of trains in addition to providing other tech upgrades for a non-Premier Rides’ attraction. The trains will utilise the advanced technology used on the Sky Rocket attractions. Combining enhanced rider comfort with high speed and thrill elements, the Sky Rocket series have proven popular among guests.
The trains will also feature new precision-machined lightweight technologies in order to adapt to a ride’s existing track design.
The Premier team aim to have the trains available for the 2021 season. The upgrade is designed to heighten the ride experience for guests, so they are motivated to ride on an attraction multiple times.
Jim Seay, president of Premier Rides, commented: “We are honoured to be able to provide a fantastic technical upgrade to a truly iconic rollercoaster. Fans will be excited when the location of the effort is announced. The Sky Rocket attractions continue to be recognised for their advanced technology and superior rider comfort, and the Premier team is certain that the addition of these newest generation of trains will take this coaster’s ride experience to the next level.”
“There are always unique challenges in layering advanced technology equipment onto an existing attraction. All through the design and integration phases, our technical team has worked closely with the client’s talented maintenance team who are passionate about keeping their equipment operating at the highest level and raising the guest experience. This new fleet of trains will help them do just that,” continued Saey.
