@Phantom Tails: I see some track of AK's new Vekoma Coaster. OK, this is also a new track type but no evidence for a third one... BTW: Have you ever seen a welded rectangular Vekoma backbone? Trust me - this is not a Vekoma track :-) *** Edited 9/7/2004 9:47:33 PM UTC by CAM***
Oh yes it is. Vekoma finally realized that instead of having the wheels on the inside (and having a bumpy ride), they've gone the way of Intamin and B&M and put the wheels on the outside (and having a smooth ride). Granted it's taken them awhile to figure it out, but they're coming around the corner.
So PhantomTails, Rctycoon2k, haiderodes are right, it is the "new looking" Vekoma track. Get used it ;)

Disney has gone to Vekoma for two Rock'n' Roller Coasters as well as the new AK ride. Why would they go to someone else for this ride? Also, the version of Space Mountain being built at Hong Kong Disneyland is a copy of the new Disneyland Space Mountain being built by Vekoma as has been confirmed here. Makes sense that Vekoma would build this version as well.
Don't you realize that it doesn't matter where the wheels are, it's the configuration of the wheel assembly. Whether it is spring loaded, constant contact, or if it's stationary, un-moving, gapped wheel assemblies. Let alone the way the track is built.
