I tried to find it on rcdb, bt nothing came up, so it must not be a coaster.

The Hammerhead Stall is a new Vekoma Shuttle Prototype that is a big U.  Passengers are seating in two 4-row (I believe) cars made to resemble airplanes.  They ascend the first tower, rotate to face downwards, go back through the station, up the second tower, rotate again, then back through.  Check out video and pictures at Vekoma's website: www.vekoma.com .

We were supposed to be getting one of these at some hotel in Orlando (along with another coaster).  Guess nothing ever came of either one...

Trbiggar, believe it or not, for the second time in the ride's almost non-existant history it is possibly not getting installed! http://www.screamscape.com/html/fantasy_island.html

It looks really cool but with what happened on 9/11/01 I could see parks not building one(along with the boy in Tampa). I mean when the car comes back down it looks like a plane running into a building(in this case the station).

I don't think that'd make much of a difference. Parks do care about stuff like that. BUT I don't think something like that is much of a concern. It's a great ride idea and I think some parks will build these in the near future!

Easy way around that Brendan. Retheme the cars. It's been done before, Arrow's suspended coaster Vampire had (being replaced by floorless) bat cars instead of the standard ones.
