Vekoma Invertigo Cost

Recommended Posts

I was reading an article (link below) which mentioned that CF was investing $10 million to install the invertigo at Dorney, and while I thought that seemed pretty high for such a compact, 'used' ride, I remembered that the cost might include removing Laser which kind of makes more sense. The same article also mentions Leviathan costing $16 million so an error in the other cost wouldn't be out of the question:

I was curious though and was trying to find how much an invertigo went for when people were still buying new ones, and I found something on Coaster-net that said $11 million:

That same year (1999), the first SROS was built at Darien Lake for $12 million (says RCDB), so something seems a little off here. This question is purely out of curiosity, but does anybody have a different estimate for how much the invertigos went for? And if these figures are right, is the reason why the invertigos were so expensive because of the added mechanical machinery? It's also not out of the question that RCDB's numbers on this are off too; Darien Lake's SLC was reported to be $1.5 million less than SFNE's and SFEG's even though they were build in the same year, and DL's was partly over water too.
