    What if the indoor track is black and the outside track is blue @Phl?

    The blue track was for the Dive Pretzel Coaster thing:







    They built a prototype at the factory: the train and a downscaled (in height) version of the vertical lift:







    They even started vertical construction on-site (Great Mall Of China):



    ...but the whole project was then aborted.

    Satellite images from this year show the whole building is no more:

    Really? Wow, I thought it was just a concept.

    This looks pretty damn awesome!

    That looks ludicrously good. Big dramatic elements on the way out, frantic speed run and rapid direction changes on the way back... that's a winner.

    @ TheFlyerMan1

    How do u know thats there for ages ?

    Its the part whats under the tarp ....

    This is without the adding :

  5.  
    Oh wow, I was NOT expecting that from the prototype, I don't know why I envisioned the prototype/this ride to be a family ride, kind of like the Vekoma Family Inverts, but a flyer.


    Hype increased like 900000

    ^^ That's the testing circuit they've had for a few months now. There was video footage of it running awhile back.

    ^ Guys, are you aware MrRC is the guy who take all these pictures and videos you see for months (even years) now? Haha, so yes he is aware of the protoype. On his last post he was refering to a new addition (probably the guest accommodation Unit as they call it) under the tarp at the end of the train.

    @ KingRCT3,

    Thnx for jumping in. Most of the guys don't know i'm the maker of all the pictures and videos of the test installation @ Vekoma Vlodrop.

    i still think that having the rotation mechanism on the train seems like excessive moving parts and weight that would add unnecessary stress on the track.

    • CommentAuthorJAKool
    • CommentTime7 days ago
     
    @sky, I don't think it would add any more weight than the onboard mechanism Nighthawk has. It probably has even less moving parts and the trains look to be a lot lighter in general.

    vekoma is actually changing the game for flyers with this sort of tech, since this way utilizes side loading and rotates the track to go with it, it means that there is only one axis of rotation and essentially one big moving part compared to the complexity of traditional flying dutchmans and b&m flyers. I think it's genius since it fixes almost all the problems that flyers have at this point. My only skepticism at this point would be that it appears that the prototype trains are only 1 seat across, and that would ruin capacity and some of the fun of riding with friends since it's just one per row. Hopefully fly will have at least 2 seats per row

    ^Do you seriously think because it's a prototype that it will have one set per car?
    We just will see a 2 of even a 4 seat across.

    But just tell RMC.

    I mean... this IS Vekoma, they could tell RMC themselves ;-)

    (For anyone who isn't aware, Vekoma are responsible for RMC sales in Europe)

    Looks like Lagoon has filed for a trademark for the name "Primordial."

    It seems like this will be a "roller coaster type experience" so they may be planning their new ride for 2018.

    I'm surprised no one has posted about this: https://twitter.com/VHCoasters/status/896410063161700352 <--- The new vekoma, "Firestone" gets topped off. It looks so freakin weird.

    ^While I think the first half is solid, I feel a lot of the 2nd half is rather repetitive. Needless to say it still looks super fun.
