Grupo Vidanta has announced two purchases from Intamin Amusement Rides and one from Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group, in what the company expects will set a new world standard for resorts and entertainment park rides. The company is continuing their plans and construction for its eagerly anticipated Vidanta World, a collection of entertainment parks located on their world-famous Nuevo Vallarta beach resort, voted one of the World´s Top 100 Hotels by Travel and Leisure in 2019.
By Winter 2020, Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta will be the only resort in the world connecting guests to both the beach and to entertainment parks by air. Grupo Vidanta, a leading Latin American resort and luxury vacation experience developer, has partnered with the engineers at Doppelmayr to create The Vidanta SkyDream—a state-of-the-art aerial gondola featuring D-Line technology, The Vidanta SkyDream will be the first of its kind in Latin America and will offer five stations on a four-plus-mile route through which passengers will be whisked throughout Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta in minutes with a VIP experience that reimagines resort transportation. Guests riding the gondola will be able choose between regular and glass-bottom cars, for those who wish to admire the view in its entirety from above.
From Intamin, one of the world’s leading ride development company, Grupo Vidanta also purchased a 45 meter diameter coaster wheel, an iconic cutting edge Ferris wheel featuring a mixture of standing cabins and cabins that can move along a track to provide even more thrills for passengers. This particular configuration will feature a lighting design that will be integrated into a grand lake show.
The second ride purchased from Intamin is a 40 meter parachute drop which will whisk families up and down by the water’s edge, who will be treated to views of the surrounding vistas that include the parks, the resort and the beach.
As The Global Association for the Attractions Industry kicks off its annual IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida from November 18 to 22, Grupo Vidanta will be making and announcing a number of further ride purchases.
“Our guests have come to expect only the best from our brands, and their anticipation is high for the new entertainment parks,” said Iván Chávez, Executive Vice President of Grupo Vidanta. “Success has come from our ability to anticipate the needs of our clientele and deliver a vision that others have never done before. The large investments we are making in the latest ride and transportation technology demonstrates our commitment to setting a new global standard for excellence and fun.”
