Are there ANY exclusive vekoma coasters out there

Sunday, April 8, 2001 5:58 PM
Does Vekoma have any coasters that are also exclusives to the park? Because it seems like if they have a ride at one park, it automatically pops up some where else. Like SLC's and Boomerangs.

Why not come up with a new design for their inverts? Like an inverted that has A DIFFERENT layout from their SLC...

So thats my idea, and my question:
Are there any exclusive vekoma coasters out there?

The Ninja at SFSTL is a custom coaster by Vekoma. It was originally designed for SFSTL but was first assembled in Vancouver for the World's Fair and then was later moved to SFSTL. There are ton's of custom coasters by Vekoma. Go to http://www.vekoma.com and click on product showcase and then product reference list at the bottom of the page. The reference list list's every ride that Vekoma has ever made and where it is located.

Yeah, Woodstock Express is pretty original...except for the fact that the Reptar Coaster at PKI is the exact same layout only inverted. :o)

Ninja's big bro can be found at Parc Asterix in France - Goudurix, which has 7 inversions.

Do check out this site for Customs, it's excellent! http://www.coaster-network.com/bm/vekoma/

How can a coaster with 7 inversions be the same as a coaster with 4 inversions? There is a little problem there.

That's why I said Big Bro. They are clearly related as both have the Butterfly Double Loops.

The Amazingly painful Ninja at SFOG is an original design however not for Six Flags. It was originally designed for one of the pier parks in New Jersey. I believe that it was bought by Morey's and they decided to sell it.

It operated there as the Kamikazi and was then moved to SFOG where it became the amazingly annoying Ninja.

UUUUUUUUUUUUggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!

Doesn't Vekoma build the occasional woodie? I'd imagine those would almost have to be somewhat original.

Robin Hood (SFH) is a custom Vekoma woodie and the SLC in South Africa has a helix at the end.

I don't believe anyone else has Rock n' RollerCoaster. One of the best Vekoma rides, IMO.

Whirlwind at Knoebels. It's supposed to be the only coaster in the world with two seperate corkscrews.

Vekoma have three woodies to their credit (Holland, Demark, Belgium)
They did as well some minetrains, the largest is to be found at Phantasialand, germany. It features three lifts. There you find as well one of their enclosed coasters with three lifts as well. all these designs are custom.
