The thing that comes to mind after seeing these photos is this recent post Vekoma posted on their facebook page about the next generation looping coaster. Though I wonder if they developed a new train design which will be the reasoning behind this test.

I wonder who will buy this prototype when they're done testing

 

Depends on what kind of type, either a Junior Flying or Junior Inverted.

 

I guess they all ready sold this coaster cozz of the supports they use.

Cedar Point. It's going to take Shoot The Rapids place.

 

Someone already answered the question above you, why are you quoting me just to be obnoxious??

^Would love to see a return of the suspended swinging coasters. That track looks interesting in its shaping, i.e. no spine like the old Vekoma track had.

 

A lot of the newer Vekoma styles have a square lift hill then spined track with outside rails similar to premier.

Good call! At first I thought it was a new track style, but it looks similar to what is found on the current family suspended coasters.

Edit: Damn A.J. was faster than me!

Thanks for the clarification grsupercity, A.J. and viking86. So I guess the square tracks are solely for the tire driven lifts only or does anyone think this will be something unique - LSMs since this appears to be some sort of prototype?

^This track style (or at least a very similar one) are also being used on the LSM sections of the Energylandia launch coaster and Battlestar Galactica, and also on the chain lifts of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Bandit Bomber.

 

Thanks for keeping us up-to-date, MrRC.

I'm curious to see what this turns out to be.
