But the more interesting thing is the new designed Vekoma Homepage.
They show a new gerneration model of a Flying coaster, that to me (and many other), has a simillarity to F.L.Y.
According tho the vekoma website, there will be a Darkride section with a story, prepairing the Riders for the trip, than it will rotate the seats into Flying position and launch the Train. This all sounds pretty familliar....
The Train has also 10 rows of two Seats, like the Vekoma Test facility.
Here is the Original Vekoma Text:Flying Coasters
On this really unique ride, riders are comfortably and safely harnessed in a prone position. Riders start in a sit-down position and are transported sideways to a dark ride section. They are immersed in a story to save the world using their flying super powers. Prepared to get launched, the track and seats are turns 90 degrees creating a smooth transformation from dark ride to flying coaster from where the flight begins and riders experience inversions, air time moments, near miss moments and a lot more. With their arms stretched out, face down and parallel to the track, this is as close as it gets to flying like superman!
The combination of the different positions of riders, creating a free view dark ride section in combination with a thrill, makes this ride type a one of a kind in the roller coaster industry.
