Vekoma is finally building the Hammerhead Stall
Thursday, December 20, 2001 2:40 AM
Yep, at Fantasy Island where the tallest Inverted(SLC) & the tallest looping coaster in the world - Vekoma's 265ft Jubilee Odyssey, is being built as well.
I read that the Stall is the prototype from the Vekoma factory & worked without any problems unlike those green & blue coasters in the US. ;)

You guys are forgetting Vekoma's financial woes. These rides may never actually be built.

I wouldn't be TOO concerned about Vekoma's financial woes (or Arrow's for that matter). Business is business, and if there's money to be made, the company will be bought out/restructured/merged or in some way saved from "extinction". Considering the coaster boom in Europe these days, I think it's a safe bet that Vekoma will be around for some time to come....

Yes, they are getting both! That park would be fun to visit next year. If only it was cheaper to get across the Atlantic!

Vekoma isn't out of buisness in fact they're actually back in buisness after the re orginization of their company. You can read more about it here. http://headlines.amusementparknet.com/inf/$headline.exe/AMUSEMENTPARK/ViewMessage?11557
So yes Fantasy Islands will get two major coasters from Vekoma and one Fabbri Booster i've heard.
