[VEKOMA] UPDATED 2021 Something is being built @ Vekoma Vlodrop


Recommended Posts

I will try something to explain :

 

In the picture with the white oval marked, here is the swivel / rotation point where the mountingplate of the harnas is.

 

and the other picture with the white rectangle is hidden the turning motor.

 

 

 

A swivel with bolts through it? And a powerful motor with no power supply 'hidden' within a small tube?

This is what I was thinking. I really don't think the circled "swivel" point is actually a swivel point. It looks more like it's bolted together. I'm also not thinking that the powerful motor is hidden in the tube. There doesn't appear to be a power supply running to said motor. . . Hmmmm, only time will tell.

@ FB i did ask Vekoma Rides Manufacturing , "Whats the purpose of this test setup ?" this is their answer :

 

De testopstelling op ons terrein is geheim en we zouden dit graag gerespecteerd zien. Enig fotomateriaal gemaakt op ons grondgebied is ten strengste verboden alsmede het fotograferen van personen op of nabij de testopstelling. We vragen dan ook alle fans on geduldig te zijn en te wachten tot we meer details kunnen prijsgeven over dit project.

 

Translated :

 

The test setup on our territory is secret and we would like to see this respected. Any photographs taken on our territory is strictly prohibited and photographing people at or near the test. We therefore ask all fans to be on patient and wait until we can reveal more details about this project.

 

Update :

I will hold back now with updates, untill Vekoma reveals more details.

And if i'm at their factory and they doing test runs, i will video it from the legal road. (no trespassing)

  • 2 weeks later...

Updated October 21st 2016 :

 

 

Still no changes, same train on track.

Its raining this and next few weeks here, possible NO test before Winter kicks in.

 

Coz the train is Tire driven launched, my guess is there will be to much friction (Slipp) between the Tire and train.

 

I will keep u updated.

It sounds like they may have seen you there. If I was you, I would hold back from sneaking around Vekoma headquarters before they tell you to not take any more pictures.

 

I go only on public roads (no trespassing)

 

Its very viseble from public roads to see if they is anything changed.

 

I'm in connected by Vekoma with FB and LinkedIn. They do have my email adress.

I love how Vekoma themselves said:

Yet you keep taking photos and videos of the project. I mean, they specifically said they would like for the project to be kept a secret, and they would like for you to respect that, yet you ignore them and keep taking photos, and videos, and posting them... Why??

 

I know we are all interested and excited about this project, but why ignore the manufacture's request and keep posting about it?? Let us find out more information about it when Vekoma releases it.

How do you build something out in the open and keep it secret? Vekoma should do a better job.

 

This is like the US Air Force bud a next Gen stealth bomber and giving factory tours while it's being assembled and not expect anyone to notice.

Vekoma said :"Any photographs taken on our territory is strictly prohibited and photographing people at or near the test. "

 

But the video is taken from Public Roads. I don't see a problem.

Yeah. They never said to not take videos/photos OF the property. If they did, you'd be in a truckload of trouble.

 

Wording is key.

 

IMO, Vekoma should've A. expressed themselves better if they really didn't want their project to be recorded from the outside, B. Made sure that their "secret project" isn't visible to the public eye.

Yes completely correct.

I think this is sort of like people using their phones around you in public places. The area around them certainly isn't their properties, but does it mean it's right to look into their screens? Or if they have expressed that they do not want you to look into their screens verbally or physically, would you still look into their screens?

 

I would definitely respect Vekoma's request and stop taking photos and videos. Taking photos and videos won't let you ride it sooner and analyzing how the system works doesn't make you a super expert or give you an engineering degree. These prototype products have their marketing values so when the marketing experts at parks decide it is the best time to drop the commercials, more visitors will go to their parks. Which means more money for the parks, then more business for manufactures like Vekoma, then manufacturers will have more money for innovations like whatever Vekoma has in the test field.

 

Patience.
