Track switching ride

Saturday, February 23, 2002 6:23 AM
Wasnt there some kind of ride that was stopped being built because the company ran out of money?  It had track that would tip over onto vertical track I think.  Does anybody know what the name of it is and whats happening with it?

Its a Vekoma Cliffhanger ride. I forget the name of it. I think it starts with a B. I dont know but youre talking about a Vekoma Cliffhanger.

At least I dont call a vertical loop a "loopdie-loop"!

yeah, i think you mean a vekoma cliffhanger. there is currently a prototype being built somewhere in taiwan. i believe that Giovionla are also attempting a similar ride. a vertical loop is also featured on the ride.

Its a Vekoma cliffhanger.  The prototype is at some amusment park overseas.  The ride includes the swithing track, some crazy curves, and a loop.  The constructions stop when Vekoma went bankrupt.
Is there somthing more, then what I've been handed, I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answers!- Hoobastank

As I recall, on the Vekoma website it shows this ride.  It looks almost complete by the photos...I wonder if it ever opened...

Vekoma went bankrupt? When? I only remember them filing for bankrupcy protection, just like what Arrow did a couple months ago...
I still have no signature.

The construction was halted when the park where it's going ran out of capital. They had to postpone it until late 2002. Vekoma filed for the equivalent of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection (like Arrow) in late 2001. They are only doing a few installs this season to conserve cash reserves. Again, the construction half of Gravity Max was the parks fault and not Vekoma.
