    Yes, but it looked like a Maurer Sohne X-Car!

    This has been appearing all over my YouTube feed:



    Dueling Dragons lives on in China...

    But here's my question, who made it? All the people in the comments are saying Intamin but RCDB lists a Chinese knock-off company. Either way it looks very impressive.

    That looks SWEEEEEEEEEET!
    I'd have assumed it was a Vekoma, given the mixed seating like Universal's BSG dueling design.

    Even still many SFCs and the STCs will have them so again, it's not that interesting...

    The concept looks amazing to be honest. Make this SW9 and I'll be happy.

    Presume it just rides like a more thrilling variation to their FreeFly coaster model? Its very similar in idea.

    I assume so but it looks less like a flying canoe :D.

    From what I've read it does have magnetic dampeners. So the rotations could be controlled or rotate base on weight distribution depends on the what the park would want.

    That looks like a cool concept but I bet it would ride poorly and would no doubt be a maintenance nightmare keeping those trains in top condition
