BTW, what is up with those houses, sorry, loops? Check out their supports & you'll see what I mean.

I think Euro Star was their first.

Wasn't Euro Star Giovanola designed, and sold by Intamin though? I recall reading that, correct me if I'm wrong.

Ouch ouch ouch? That doesn't sound like the Intamin I know, although I heard the Finnish Tornado has a violent slam into the brake run, so maybe they still have a few things to learn.

That's correct as why else would Eurostar have Giovanola/B&M track? www.coaster-network.com/bm/intamin/euro.htm

Ouch ouch ouch? Well, they haven't built many. Volcano is their first box-track inverted, followed by this Tornado, then the Finnish Tornado. (Not including Impulses)
