My first Vekoma was the Wild Mouse at Idlewild (1997), but as for the clones:

 

Boomerang: Sidewinder at Hersheypark (2002)

Flying Dutchman: X-Flight at (then) Six Flags Worlds of Adventures (2003)

Invertigo: Two-Face the Flip Side at Six Flags America (2005)

Junior Coaster: Woodstock's Express at Cedar Point (2010)

MK-1200: Ninja at Six Flags over Georgia (2013)

Mini-SLC: Flying ACE Aerial Chase at Carowinds (2009)

SLC: Serial Thriller at (then) Six Flags Worlds of Adventure (2003)

 

I happen to live in a part of the world that lacks many Vekoma rides, and it's absolutely wonderful.

Is it sad that the only Vekoma clone I've ridden is a roller skater?

 

You're brain will thank you for some of them haha. I love their Giant Inverted Boomerangs and half of their regular boomerangs. The intensity on these things are awesome. Some of them are unfortunately needlessly rough, but here are my firsts for the Vekomas:

 

Boomerang: Zoomerang (Lake Compounce)

Giant Inverted Boomerang: Goliath (Six Flags New England)

Roller Skater: Barnstormer (Magic Kingdom)

SLC: Mind Eraser (Six Flags New England)

Suspended Family Coaster: Silver Streak (Canada's Wonderland)

Boomerang at WOF, and it is the only Boomerang I've ridden. When I had the chance to ride the many others I encountered, I did not know about credits yet, so I unfortunately missed out on a lot of credits lol! I'll reclaim them one day thought lol!

 

And Serial Thriller at Astroworld.

 

I've been on other Vekomas, but those are the first "clones" I've ridden. I did not do the G.I.B. (again was not aware of credits at the time), and I've not had chances for the others so far.

I didn't think Vekoma did BTMRR, and I thought they only did Gadgets Go Coaster in Paris. I was just using Wikipedia for confirmation so I could be completely wrong about that.

You're right- I was confused with Paris and Tokyo's! Plus I typed this list up when I was a bit tired out. So in that case, here is my amended list:

 

Boomerang- Boomerang at Knott's (my first ride was in 2001 or 2002)

G.I.B.- Deja Vu at SFMM (first ride was in 2009)

Mine Train- Haven't been on one (all the ones I've been on are Arrow)

Roller Skater- Gadget's Go Coaster (first ride was sometime around 1995)

Boomerang: Carolina Cobra

Flying Dutchman: Nighthawk (fliers are the 1 thing Vekoma does better than B&M, IMO)

Mine train: not sure if this counts or not, but Expedition Everest (doesn't use the clone layout)

Haven't been on any of the others, although I have heard that SFOG's Ninja is a standard sit down version of the SLC except for the corkscrews.

The first Vekoma clone that I rode was a Suspended Family Coaster (Rugrats Runaway Reptar at Dreamworld) in 2002, then RoadRunner Roller Coaster at Movie World the same year (Rolleskater 335m) and finally taking the courage to ride my first inverting coaster Lethal Weapon (SLC) in 2006.
