[VEKOMA] (CLOSED) Something is being built @ Vekoma Vlodrop


Recommended Posts

The Walt Disney Company has made a special arrangement with the Dutch builder Vekoma attraction. If early information leaks about canceling a new attraction at a Disney theme park, Disney allowed the entire job. That says marketing director Peter van Bilsen.

 

Disney's secret number one priority. "That kind of information is very sensitive competition," Van Bilsen on BNR News Radio. "We are therefore very careful." On future Disney projects, he may say nothing.

 

Vekoma produces almost all rides for Disney parks worldwide, including Space Mountain, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Big Thunder Mountain and Expedition Everest. In recent years built the Limburg company include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Walt Disney World and Tron Light Cycle Power Run in Shanghai Disney.

 

The director press regularly at heart employees to bring out nothing about ongoing projects. "All information should remain indoors. An amusement park is investing millions and then the same rate in the news ... Then you take away the surprise."

 

Vekoma went bankrupt in 2001, but is now running again. "First we delivered five to ten rides a year, now that there are fifty. Especially by growing markets in Asia and Eastern Europe." Thanks to new production and design techniques, the roller coasters are also a lot more comfortable than before, says Van Bilsen.

Does Vekoma make rides for Universal? Cause there is a image of a ride that looks like it could use a track like this

 

Universal's been filing for some new patents, and two of them may be recognizable to Nintendo fans:

 

 

 

Boom coaster: This is a unique arm that would attach to a ride vehicle to help enhance rides that appear to be on a track system, but are actually controlled by a separate arm. For example, the arm could be C-shaped connected to a secondary hidden track underneath the track guests see. As a result, rides that have story element breaks in the track — say like an upcoming jump from one track to another — could cause suspense. "Because the passenger may believe that the simulated ride surface controls a path of the passenger vehicle, the passenger may fear or anticipate that the passenger vehicle may crash or otherwise incur damage as a result of the elevated gap," said the patent. This has many fans thinking it could also be related to Nintendo via the Donkey Kong Country video game series, which features areas with cars traveling through dangerous mines filled with jumps, dips and turns.
