Infinity Flyer Train
Skyline Attractions designed and engineered the next generation of wooden roller coaster trains, the Infinity Flyer, for Great Coasters International, Inc. The project has spanned several years, starting in 2017, as the design has been continuously tweaked and improved. These revolutionary, one-of-a-kind vehicles utilize a clever modular design to drastically reduce the number of welds, heavily cut down on maintenance costs, and allow for never-before-seen elements and maneuvers on a GCII attraction, thanks to their Class V classification and articulation capabilities. The trains also have the ability to be added on existing attractions from other manufacturers, helping to preserve classic rides while introducing modern safety standards. And with near infinite theming opportunities, the trains can look as though they were exclusively designed for any attraction.
Skyline Attractions has worked hand-in-hand with GCII on the Infinity Flyer design for several years. The Infinity Flyer train is the successor to the incredibly successful Millennium Flyer train design, which members of the Skyline team also spent years working with. An earlier iteration of the new Infinity Flyer design was first unveiled at the 2018 IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida, USA. Skyline later tested the vehicles on a custom-built test track at its facility before successfully testing a train on the White Lightning roller coaster at Fun Spot America, also in Orlando. Skyline Attractions’ involvement with the upcoming roll-out of the train design on amusement rides has also included all technical documentation, preparation for design reviews, and a thorough containment analysis.
