Trains

Millennium Flyers

Millennium Flyer trains were designed by Great Coasters International to be more flexible than other trains, allowing them to negotiate tighter turns, reduce damage to the structure of the roller coaster and provide a comfier ride.

Mini-llennium Flyers

Mini-llennium Flyer trains are similar in design to Millennium Flyers, however they are smaller. The first roller coaster to receive the trains is Coastersaurus at Legoland Florida.

Infinity Flyers

Introduced at IAAPA 2018, Infinity Flyers are capable of even more tight transitions and flipping through inversions. They are compatible with both the wooden track and Titan Track. The Infinity Flyers were designed and engineered by Skyline Attractions.[1]
