New coaster concepts from Vekoma

04 January, 2010

Vekoma has unveiled a new coaster concept called Dragon Fly. Riders are tilted forward in a kneeling position on this family swinging flying coaster, pictured here.

Vekoma Rides Manufacturing is also now offering four-abreast sit-down and suspended coaster trains for traditional mega coasters and launch coasters. The launch rides are available both with a horizontal launch or a lifthill.

The first four-abreast Vekoma coaster appears to be Battlestar Gallactica, a set of duelling coasters at Universal Studios Singapore/Resorts World Sentosa. One track will feature a four-abreast 32-seat train, the second will be with suspended seating. Both trains will be launched on the lift. Each coaster is 1.2km long.
