    Asia Park is the park that got most of the old Hard Rock Park rides.
    The mine train and junior are open already but the Premier ferris wheel coaster and suspended coaster aren't open yet.
    They are fully constructed but are planned for phase 2 of the park.

    It seems the park wanted to offer more bang with phase 2 though and a few weeks ago rumours of a new suspended Vekoma coaster appeared.

    Well it looks like the rumours were correct and we now have track on site.

    Wait, isn't that the old Vekoma track? Is this thing bought used from somewhere?

    Vekoma never stopped using their old track.
    I guess they still use it on rides that were designed before they came out with the newer track design.
    For example The SLC's at Energylandia and Al Zawra’a Dream Park, The Boomerangs at various Fantawild, The mine train at Vinpearl All opened 2015 or later with the older track design.

    Maybe Vekoma is going to test the new track on the one at Moreys, and start making them fresh after that?

    Stefan Holtman, Vekoma's Concept Engineer, showed me their new SLC design at IAAPA and everything is new (track, layout & trains). I've asked him if he could send me the renderings he showed me, but I'm not sure if they're sharing that publicly or not.

    I only got a short glimpse of it as he was going through his renderings to show me Firestorm and Bermuda Blitz, so I can't tell you much other than it's vastly different from current SLCs and looked similar to the aforementioned coasters.

    So similar to what they've used for Battlestar Galactica in Singapore?

    If not this, then very similar.
