The first photo that pkdcoaster posted really leads me to believe that this is indeed an Intamin.

I do think its an Intamin also, the crossties look like Intamin's work.

Also: looks like CF is getting yet another McDonald's themed coaster :P

I am caught in the middle... I know the manufacturers are definitely the same in terms of the two coasters but I starting to think that the Intamin track modification is true. I mean if I look at the most recent Premier coaster track which is mummy track being built at Universal Studios Singapore then the KD and F1 tracks looks nothing like something premier would do in terms of cross ties. They look more like traditional Intamin track in terms of cross ties

see the mummy track here

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I was just at Universal Orlando a month ago and that Singapore Mummy track looks no different in any way than the current Mummy track in Orlando.

There are pretty significant differences in those tracks. You can definitely see the Intamin in this new KD track.

Yea so it leads me to believe that it just may be Intamin.... But why didn't they use this new track on I-speed or are they only using this track on very large scale coasters now.

I think it looks more Intamin than Vekoma.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?
