All their model codenames sound like they could be actual ride names. What's next, the Iron Dragon model? Or the Lightning Run model?

Looks like an insane ride. Only it looks really weird with just 2 cars!

Come on western world, when do you finally realize Vekoma isn't what it was in the 90's?

I don't think that's the problem. The problem is that Vekoma can get these huge contracts for 20+ coasters in China with corporations like Fantawild and the like. It's far more cost efficient for them then to install a single coaster at your neighborhood park. It's not like they don't do smaller parks, but the waiting time is now 2 years + and many parks won't wait that long as they can get coasters faster from other manufacturers.

It's such a shame though. Rides like Lech and Formula are amazing and so will this.

I still believe it's a part of the problem. Past experiences with certain manufacturers last for quite a long time.
