It seems that the Eurofighter was going to be the next big thing, but it seems like reverchon, maurer sohne, and even the Eurofighters creator gerstlauer spinners have taken the spot. From what I have read EFs give a good ride more or less, could this just be a cost thing by the parks?

Sure. Let's just say it is. Personally though, I would say that a Spinner offers a more "all-around" (no pun intended) package. It's Disorienting, can be fast paced, provides great laterals, and it's not "normal" because of the rotation of the cars. It just seems more interesting to me than something with a really steep drop. (That's all it is...)

((Unless I have my wires crossed on what a eurofighter is)) I remember reading that the inlines were "yawn" because it was taken at relatively slow speeds.

There will be another one (I hate that eurofighter name) with two inversions in the UK in 2005.

Well, Oakwood in England is getting one, so its not like none are being built.
Even so, it seems like some of the spinning coasters have become the new best buy for parks.

Plus, the Spinning Coaster has been around since '96 or '97, while the first Euro Fighter opened in 2003. In today's market that is a considerable difference in visibility.

Its only a matter of time before they head this way. Many small European coasters don't make it over here until a few years after they debut.

^^^ You'll make a lot of Welsh people very angry with that - Oakwood is in Wales not England.

Welsh people are the same as Irish people and British people just like Chinese and Japanese people are the same right?
And I am JUST KIDDING for those of you that can't detect saracasm!

Oops, I should have known better to say that Oakwood is in England. Guess I'd better brush up on my U.K. geography. ;)

How dare you? Go do some studying before you come around here and post nonsense like that ;)

I only hope that the good people of Wales will forgive me someday. If only they could see the tears that I have shed because of this unfortunate mistake...
Eh, whatever... Wales, Ireland, England its all one in the same. :)

Thats like me as a Brit saying,
"America, Canada, Mexico all the same to me"

Heck, with as many Mexicans as there are here lately in my area, you're not too far off. What is this Canada you speak of anyways, Eh?
