    Here I believe are all the current Vekoma train types and their model numbers

    •MK700 - Family Coaster
    •MK900 - Family Coaster
    •MK901 – Mine Train
    •MK904 – Motorbike
    •MK905 – Suspended Family Coaster
    •MK906 - Racing Coaster
    •MK908 – Motorbike
    •MK1100 – Wood Coaster
    •MK1101 – Looping Coaster
    •MK1102 – F.L.Y
    •MK1201 – Suspended Looping Coaster
    •MK1203 – Invertigo
    •MK1207 – Flying Dutchman
    •MK1208 – Giant Inverted Boomerang
    •MK1210 – New Boomerang Trains
    •MK1212 – Looping Coaster
    •MK1300 – Stingray
    •MK1301 – 4 Abreast Thrill Coaster
    •MK1302 – 4 Abreast Suspended Thrill Coaster
    •MK1600 – Big Air

    They for the most part seem to follow the track then designation number system

    Currently there are 6 released models for the MK1100 track i think which Zwoopaman already posted
    Bermuda Blitz (Lech Coaster)
    Space Warp (Formula One at Energylandia)
    Hyper Space Warp (Fantawild looping coasters basically just Space Warp with lift hill)
    Firestorm (One in Vietnam one in China, Neither open)
    Shockwave (Dragon Valley ride)
    Skydash (Energylandia Hyper)

    Theres a number of unreleased ones as well which showed up at IAAPA. From memory there was one called Top Gun, Thunderbird and one called Space Chase. Im sure there were more but i cant remember them

    Maybe I'm seeing things, but I've just re-watched the animation multiple times, and did anyone else notice there's NO VESTS, ONLY LAP BARS?!!?!

    Great layout - I love that the new Vekoma coasters truly are a combination of 'something for everyone'. Great drops, airtime and inversions. In essence, on paper, they're 'perfect' coasters.

    These ALL look fantastic. It's weird for me to see Vekoma and be excited for the product. My how the times have changed.

    So, these New Gen Vekomas. Most are based in Asia I think, as in, the only one so far in Europe or the US is Lech right?
    I can't see the US or Europe ignoring them anymore, they do look fantastic!

    There's also Formula at Energylandia, which was the first New Gen actually ;) And I agree with you: the US and Europe shouldn't ignore New Vekoma anymore!

    Ah yes, that was built a couple of years back, it didn't get anywhere as near as much coverage as Lech.

    Heres a nice image of the Shockwave model.

    And in a separate vein what appears to be a mid sized SLC model as well although not as good a picture.

    ^I can't tell, but does that SLC have the new-style track?

    And the Shockwave coaster looks beautiful.
