    I believe all these designs have come from the mind of Vekomas senior concept engineer Benjamin Bloemendaal. i dont think its a coincidence all these designs appeared after he moved into the role 2 and a half years ago.

    As discussed on the FLY topic, Vekoma has very recently revamped their website in line with their new logo and general rebranding. Their new concepts and designs are finally shown including some never seen before!

    That's great. The rendering of the flying coaster is brilliant. Can't wait for that!

    Whilst they're doing some exciting stuff, it's a shame they don't use a Mack/Taron style lap restraint on the Bermuda blitz models.

    Although admittedly I've not done Lech Coaster, and I've heard the OTSR's are fine.

    Oh Lech's restraints are ok. Admittedly not on Mack/Intamin lap-bars level, but the sensation of freedom is very decent and the vests aren't too tight compared to some B&M Wingcoasters.

    Really curious to eventually find out which parks are going to install these Next Gen STCs and Flyers

    And motorbikes too, but my guess is that they'll use a system similar to TRON.

    Nice to see the Thunderbird SLC in better detail. It appears to be identical to the one show on Page 2 of this thread. Looks nicer with some surroundings :p

    Is it just me or does the image with the Blue SLC look like it has a Quidditch pitch in the background?

    I'd say judging on the rough medievil theme its more likely a Jousting arena

    The fact that this will be an inert with airtime is an instant turn on for me. Looks like I'm going to get used to STC instead on SLC.

    Looks like the new Fantawild in Kunming will also pick up one of the Vekoma Top Gun Coasters as well as a Vekoma Family Boomerang Rebound model for good measure.

    While Fantawild Taiyuan gets a Hyper Space Warp model with a nice colour scheme.
