That vehicle seems to sit pretty high. I wonder if the cars could be compatible with pre-existing Arrow/Vekoma looper track to breathe new life into them.

Based on the early reviews of Time Traveler, having more controlled spinning coasters doesn't sound like a bad thing.

Likely not. These cars are based on the new-style Vekoma track with the rails / wheels on the outside, most Arrow and Vekoma coasters have the rails / wheels on the inside. Theoretically it could be done, but coasters with the old style track sit at a very low center line, and having new cars at what is essentially double the height of the center line would make awkward Arrow coasters even more awkward.

It's the same reason why Rougarou and Patriot sit slightly higher than most B&M floorless coasters - they match the old stand-up center line. If they would have been replaced with, say, normal sit-down trains, some of the forces would have been awkward / uncomfortable.

The forces on Vekoma's older coasters are already awkward and uncomfortable, maybe they could convert Goudurix into a spinner - it might be just what it needs :lmao:

Rumor has it that what we're looking at will be first used on GotG at Epcot (the ride system obviously, not the layout).
