January 2015 marked a new era for Hello Kitty fans – the Japanese Iconic cat cartoon figure, who this year turns 40-years old, travels from her famous cartoon London suburban home to China, making her mark in Zhejiang province's, Anji county. Known for making friends, Hello Kitty teams up with a ‘new friend’, Intamin, to create an all-new and unique amusement ride for the World’s first Hello Kitty themed Amusement Park and the first Coaster Wheel of its kind in China. Exclusive to Intamin, but decorated by Hello Kitty, Intamin’s Coaster Wheel entertains Hello Kitty and up to 1’000 of her friends per hour. Standing over 37 meters tall with a diameter of 35 meters, this unusual version of a wheel – with both 8 stationary gondola’s and 8 gondola’s on an elliptical track structure inside the wheel (each gondola carrying up to 6 passengers) – provides fun for the entire family.
As Hello Kitty hits its 40th year anniversary and Intamin nears its 50th anniversary, this dynamic duo hit it large as together they team up bringing a quality built Hello Kitty Wheel for millions to enjoy. From famous “Mouse ears” to …“Kitty ears”, Intamin has a legacy of building quality engineered and unique amusement rides and attractions over the world. With safety at our core, Intamin brings millions upon millions of safe smiles, laughs, screams and …well – MEOW’s!
Take a friend or make a “new” friend on the Hello Kitty Coaster Wheel, built by Intamin.
