First Vekoma Tilt Coaster in U.S. to arrive at Circuit of the Americas

Circuit Breaker, the first Vekoma Tilt Coaster in the United States, will debut at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

As the riders slowly climb, a massive seesaw looms in the distance. They stop at a dead-end track, floating in mid-air. The huge track tilts. Riders in the front tip down. Riders in the back lift to 40 meters (131 feet) high. They fall into a pit of camelbacks, full-speed Zero-G roll airtime, inversions and bunny hops.
