Thanks for this. I guess this is another prototype? I guess it isn't routine for them to build part of a new coaster if there isn't something new to test right?

Hi,

This is something totaly unexpected from Vekoma.

Possible options ? :

1. Junior Tiltcoaster ?
2. Junior Launch Coaster ?

It will take some time to find out. Did u noticed the very light blueish track in the background ?(1st picture)

I Guess Donkeys Are Okay

I think it is a piece of track from the Dive pretzl .loop coaster. A while back was there the lift hill test. The track looks very similar to me.

Possible options....
- maybe a new sitdown (spinning) coaster? Spinnig is not in there product range now...Prototype based on the rotation system for F.L.Y. Phantasialand?
- maybe a new track style for the SLC? It is really needed...
- a tilt coaster would be awesome!!

Lets see the upcoming weeks...

I really hope a new SLC track system!!

Hasn't there been rumours that they are working on a new gen. Tilt coaster. Perhaps this will be a prototype for that?
Energylandia in Poland is looking to install one for 2020 - and they have worked with Vekoma quite a lot especially with the new gen. LSM launch coaster F1 debuting there.

If the Tilt Coaster rumour is true... that's exciting. Would love to have a go on one.

I don't think this is SLC track. I feel this is a new sit-down coaster prototype they're testing for. Hence where the track and (presumably) the support connects is facing upwards.
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:
