New S&S Launched Coasters for Happy Valley

It's being reported on Park World that two of the Happy Valley parks in China will add new S&S launched coasters for the 2010 season. The two parks are Happy Valley Beijing and Happy Valley Shenzhen.

The rides are reported to launch to 84 mph and be almost 200 feet tall, and feature underwater tunnels. More details and some art of the new style of trains that should be used can be seen on Park World's site.

The Happy Valley parks are really quite a showcase of the latest and greatest rides, all done with a high level of theming. I'll be quite interested to see more of these rides when they open as S&S hasn't built any big launched rides for a while.
