An SBNO Intamin racing coaster?

What does everyone feel about this one?

(by looking at the park's website it does seem like it is operating since it is listed as an attraction)

...bummer, it says the park has a JetStar in storage, too.  Weird thing, it says the Vertigorama was built in '83, and has been SBNO since '83.  Could be a typo, or could be associated somehow with the strange circumstances surrounding the park...don't think we have many, if any,  'buzzers in SA...

It says that the ride was never completed. I'm wondering about that Jet Star too. It would look pretty nice in my backyard :) j/k. Anyone have a link to more history on this place? I find it hard to belive that Intamin would just drop this coaster (have they made any other racers?) And if this was sbno for a while (you can see the rust on the tracks in the pic above) who finished it? Strange.

The construction of some of the rides listed as Intamin at this park is most unusual.  I've never seen another Intamin with a round spine for a backbone or the rails carried by bolted on angles.  And the kiddie coster is down right strange with two pipe rails that are only held together at the vertical uprights.

The uprights on the kiddie coaster look like those on some early Intamin kiddie coasters, but the rails on the others were connected at frequent spacing much like Intamin's current flat 2 tube track

Wow that Intamin has Arrow/Vekoma/Morgan track.  Are we sure this is a Intamin?

I have to wonder in some ways, but the track really isn't like any other builder's track.  The bolted on cross pieces on a round spine are unique in my experience.

U know what i am thinking, I bet it was designed by intamin and then built by the park.  So instead of using Intamin Standard track they fabricated their own.
