Vekoma. I wonder if it will be the same as the family invert at Dollywood. I liked that ride a lot, it was fast, fun, and comfortable. You gotta love a ride that puts the brake run in the station.

It looks like a good addition to the overall lineup at Coney and it's good to see Deno's expanding.

It certainly looks a lot like Dragonfly at Dollywood.


Promoter of fog.

Dragonfly is really cool. A longer version could make a really great themed experience if money were no object.

Modern Vekoma coasters are absolutely top notch. I can't wait for this one.

That's a statement I never would have predicted circa 1992-2005ish

Agreed, but it's totally true now.

Lech Coaster (https://rcdb.com/11034.htm) is one of the finest coasters in Europe.
