The Suzhou Giant Wheel Park in China is getting the first Stingray-track from Vekoma. The track is compact with a vertical lift and uses a train design similar to the Vekoma Flyer coasters.

Looks kinda fun. I hope the queue line doesn't hold more than 12 people. [lol]

That looks like a really cool ride, never heard of it before now. Why do all the new concepts go OUTSIDE the U.S.???

I saw this just about a week ago. I think the dive into the final break run looks awesome.

^Look closely. That's not diving into the brake run, it's going to have to be the brake run, so I imagine it being slow.

Focus. Didn't we just get Maverick? We have ALL the GG woodies in existence, including a new one this year, which are some of the best wooden experiences on the globe. Inverting Dive Machines, only here. Not to mention B&M was ONLY in the US until Nemesis went over to Europe four years after B&Ms first roller coaster opened. We've got the only three roller coasters that go over 400 feet. Face it, the U.S. is spoiled, and you sound slightly spoiled yourself complaing just as soon as Asia starts getting a few new ideas for themselves. C'mon, that country is like 95% Togo, they really need some substance. [lol][;)]

the brake run looks like it might be like the Maurer S�hne x-car coasters for instance Abmiso

I wouldn't say that they're awesome but they're not as bad as some make them out to be. Most of their US coasters aren't that great but Fujiyama and Bandit in Japan look pretty cool.

I saw this on TPR a while ago and they managed to find a pov from Vekoma on this ride and oh god, it looks like it will be painful. You do infact "dive" into the brake-run.

Looks like it'd be fun till you slam into the brakes. Hopefully it won't be as rough, with the new track style.

^^^I hope that recreation on NoLimits is inaccurate. It looks very short, very painful, and very stupid.

Forgot Tower of Terror, not in U.S.

That thing looks kinda lame, but still pretty cool. I wanna try one, I can't make up my mind if it looks good or not.
