I believe the SLC is the Mind Eraser at SFA, T2 at SFKK and the Great Noreaster at Moreys Pier its an inverted clone. I could be wrong though.
LIM stands for Linear Induction Magnets. (or is it Motor?)

The Vekoma SLC (Suspended Looping Coaster) is Serial Thriller at SFO.

And LIM does stand for Linear Induction Motor which uses high powered electromagnets to propel a vehicle.

Aint it neat to be floating in your seat?

Well now that sux.....i think all of the Batman: The Ride's have just been disgraced by the one in Mexico being a Vekoma SLC clone. The B+M Batman clones are 100 times better than any of those Vekoma Stock SLC's

I think that the REM's at EMT have a lot more RPM's than SST does. But when you compare BBC's fast moving PSA's against the DNA at O.J.'s, then you will see that there is no comparison.
Next year, IRS will have opened the new IOU and that should be PDQ. So, hold onto your IRA's and give the CIA and FBI your TLC so that you don't wind up in the PEN....................

SLC is suspended looping coaster. It is a set model that Vekoma has installed in lots of places, like their boomerangs and invertigos. Check out http://www.rcdb.com/rcdb.dll/production.htm#1
for info on standard model installs.

achtbaan, stop posting things just saying you hate them. How about you make some somewhat intelligent posts.

achtbaan, get outta here buddy! If all you are gonna do is make a mission statement saying that B+M's suck, then don't post. To drag off a bit, Vekoma's suck. The only worthwhile thing they make are Invertigo's. I think most people that belong to this site will take a B+M over a Vekoma any day.
