GCI Announces Viper and More

Great Coasters International (GCI) started IAAPA 2013 off with a bang by making two announcements. The first is they will be supplying new trains to Coastersaurus at Legoland Florida. The new train design is called the Mini-llennium Flyers. Check out this picture of the themed lead car:

The second announcement is Viper, their tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster to date! At 50m tall and 1,500m long, it will also be the tallest, fastest, and longest wooden coaster in China! Watch a video of the new wood coaster along with a POV below:

GCI also quietly released this animation which shows their new Switchback Reversing Coaster concept in action:

It appears that the virtual coaster is shown at a virtual Elitch Gardens, but there is no indication that the coaster will open there. Does anyone know more?

Stay tuned for more great updates from IAAPA this week!
