Are Vekoma wood coaster trains similar to milleniu

Monday, March 24, 2003 4:32 AM
Good morning my fellow coaster buzzers,

I was just curious to know whether or not the trains on vekoma's wooden coasters such a robin hood and were wolf, are those trains simlar to millenium flyers. I obviously know that millenium flyer trains are built by GCI and they are the only ones who use them on there coasters. So what i am asking you is do you think they track as well as millenium flyers and also are they simlar in there design would you say any of you have ridden both on a millenium flyer train and vekoma woodie train. Thank you very much for you time.

1 month to go untill hte coaster season starts baby yeahhhh.

I know they look alike. I've heard from a good friend of mine who has ridden both that the Vekoma trains are a lot more comfortable than the millenium flyers.

Vekomas are still 2 bench trains, right? That's the difference. They probabbly can't handle the curves that the single bench MF trains can.

3 bench actually.

ThunderCoaster will change from vekoma's trains to PTC's 2 bencher. The layout is a little bit too twisted for the 3 bench cars.

Vekoma┬┤s are 3 bench! The "grill" reminds of the GCI cars.

There is as well a third Vekoma/Allot+Lomax Woodie THUNDERCOASTER at Tusenfryd. This is by far their best design which has this infamous second hill (airtime like a long arctic night!). I heard that the Vekoma trains will be removed this season. Apparently they were too heavy. I think PTC will be the new choice.

For pix of THUNDERCOASTER check the ecc website.

Wow, three bench! Then they must have zero in common with Millennium Flyers.

I think what everyone is trying to say is that they're three bench trains, not single bench like Flyers.
