Vekoma Ride Manufacturing has 10 projects in the works around the world, as well as two new coaster innovations including a new MK1301 four-abreast train, with an added half-metre of legroom between rows.
Rides planned in Europe for 2011 include a long-awaited Mine Train for Isla Magica in Spain, a themed Junior Boomerang coaster for Drayton Manor in England and a package of attractions for Rainbow Magicland outside Rome including a Madhouse, Mine Train, Junior Coaster and Sky Shuttle. At the ORA Themepark in Istanbul, Turkey, Vekoma will supply a 335-metre-long Junior Coaster.
At E-DA World in Kaohsiung, South Taiwan, Vekoma has opened a custom designed five-story indoor Family Coaster (pictured abpve) as well as a Big Air Coaster (pictured below). Work on a launched Motorbike Coaster for Red Sun near Nanjing, China, is nearing completion. A portion of the 610-metre-long custom layout runs outdoors. Vekoma is also preparing a Giant Inverted Boomerang for Jin Jian Park in Shanghai, China.
The company also has three other unidentified projects underway.
