^ To be fair though, these Polish Vekomas look better than anything they've built ever.
What are these for?

Looks fantastic, video trackwork looks A+ too - I wonder if they imported actual spline data in for that?

I like these little powerful Vekomas that are popping up. I hope they're smooth, I've never ridden one of their most modern designs. They're steppin up their game.

I can't view the video, it says it has been removed by the user.... But as far as I can see, the layout looks nice! :)

I was so lucky that I could watch that video! What a relentless layout! :)
- I have to prove that NL1 is still alive! Pack-a-punch tracks are, I personally feel, a LOT of fun! :)
- IMO, the ride stats are not everything in most cases! Never rely on the big numbers showing how tall, fast or long!

I have a feeling Alan Schilke is behind this.... looks like his work, and RMC does have a partnership with Vekoma now

Is it official yet? Can we officially now add Vekome to the "doesn't suck" category of manufacturers?

These latest Vekomas look genuinely brilliant.

They've had radical changes so far! :)

Vekoma didn't suck before this, they made all the newer Disney coasters...

Anyone expecting anything that looks anywhere near this good coming from Vekoma is a liar. :P

Out of everything that goes into making a Disney roller coaster, you'd have to admit, the actual track itself is the suckiest bit.

I can't say too much for other Disney coasters, but Disneyland Paris' Space Mountain is good despite of how crappy and rough the actual coaster itself is.

The lead designer for the layout is (most likely) Benjamin Bloemendaal, the guy behind Orkanen and Rollercoaster Formula 1.

Well Intamin appears to be giving that one competition for what counts as "family".

The drop is so ridiculously sexy. This could be Vekoma's first good roller coaster.
