Vekoma Motorbike Reliability?

Saturday, July 16, 2005 4:50 PM
Does anyone here know how well the first ever hydraulically launched Vekoma has been running? Since it opened, there hasn't been much news about it, so I was just wondering if they managed to pull off the launch reliably. I did hear that the park was running the coaster in snowy conditions, so I'm guessing the ride runs fairly well.

According to RCDB, another one just opened. Is this the kind of track structure and technology that Expedition Everest will be using?

As seen in this picture:

the track style of Expedition Everest is different from the track on Vekoma's motorbike coasters:

The trains are also different as well. Expedition has sit-down trains, whereas the motorbike coasters obviously do not.
