New train design with elevated seats on a LSM Multi Launch Coaster
TARON holds a total of 4 World Records. Besides being the fastest Multi Launch Coaster in the world, having the most powerful LSM launch drive in the world, it is also the longest multi launch of its kind in the world and the number of intersections is breaking any record – the track crosses an unbelievable 116 times.
The most important factor of TARON’s success is Intamin’s new -open- train design. Besides the track quality and obviously also the layout, it is the trains which have a very strong impact on the ride experience and whether the ride is enjoyable and will have many repeat riders or not.
One of the client’s request was that the train had to perfectly match the ride. While the high dynamic layout with its figures and changes of direction together with the quality of the track form the basis for the ride enjoyment, the train is to some extent the bridge to the passenger. Its design brings out the way the track is laid out to build up the drama of the ride experience – and can only at its best increase it.
The very open design was intended to create a particularly free, literally unrestrained ride feeling – creating the special extra kick on the fast-paced ride through Klugheim.
The ride and consequently guest experience was the center point during the train development, looking for the highest passenger comfort, the feeling of flying, an enjoyable ride experience and at all times complying with the most stringent safety standards. At first sight a contradiction.
Safety, comfort, thematic embedding and spectacular ride enjoyment are merged into the train
