^Don't Vekomas, like what Jew said, have wider tracks. They also look heavier, use up slightly larger footprint, and don't have that good of experience to them due to their usual roughness.
I know I won't rest until I've made it to a major fair in Europe someday. The ones in the States just don't have some things many European (German, specifically) fairs seem to have, and I unfortunately can' quite describe what.
The Whirlwind looks like an interesting coaster, mainly because Vekoma at that point in time was going through the "I wanna be Arrow" stage, so I guess the WhirlWind model is the awnser to the original Roaring Twenties Corkscrew that Arrow made. The Corkscrew with BayernKurve model looks more like Vekoma doing their own thing. I still wonder how they got away with essentially stealing Arrow's track style for so many years.
^I think Vekoma had a license from Arrow to begin with. I don't know the current status as Vekoma developed coasters based on the Arrow system that were Vekoma's own invention like inverted coaster, boomerang that a lower percentage now goes to the license owner for current Vekoma coasters using new evolutions of the Arrow track system.
