Marketable Moment: Accelerating to top speed in a matter of seconds combined with our dynamic layouts make Zamperla’s Launch coasters a market leader.
Our Lightning Launch Coasters are capable of hourly capacities from 500 to 2,000 pph. The layout shown on this page is our standard two-launch layout. However, we can custom design a ride to fit your site and budget.
Launch Coasters utilize the Lightning vehicle, which is our thrill platform.
We partnered with the leading manufacturer of roller coaster LSM systems. This ensures our launch system consistently has great uptime.
INNOVATIVE TRAIN DESIGN
• New Restraint and Seat: The Lightning features open seating that keeps riders safe with a comfortable, redundant lap bar. We created a vehicle that was ergonomic and offered open seating.
• Capacity: The train’s open design allows for a higher real hourly capacity. Guests can enter and exit the train much faster than the competition.
• Re-Imagined Car Body: The entire chassis is aluminum-milled. This not only allows the vehicle to weigh less. It dramatically reduces the amount of NDT (Non-• • Destructive Testing) required every off-season. This minimizes the cost of ownership when compared to traditional roller coaster vehicles
• Meet any Capacity: The Lightning train system is our modular thrill platform and we will utilize the number of vehicles so our proposal meets your budgetary and capacity needs
