So it looks like Vekoma are testing a new thrill coaster concept. Apparently it's their answer to a Mack XTREME Spinning coaster, but I've also heard it could be for Energylandia's proposed multi-launch and multi-inverting water coaster:-

I'm no expert, but I swear that loots like a lot of track/supports for a prototype test? Intriguing, nonetheless.

According to Screamscape, the GOTG ride at Epcot is rumoured to be Vekoma's version of the XTREME Spinning Coaster. So it could be that model materialising.

Well, the guy on Screamscape said that he originally had a source tell him that it was going to be a launched roller coaster, so he thought it would be a Mack XTREME Spinner. Then he had another source tell him that it was going to be a Vekoma launched spinner. Here's the link to Screamscape's Epcot page:http://www.screamscape.com/html/wdw_-_epcot.htm#Guardians

I'm thinking it's for Energylandia at the moment. The track just looks a little odd compared to what I imagine it would look for a spinning coaster... :/ But it's complete guesswork in all honesty.

I'm going to throw The 3rd Chimelong park "Chimelong Qingyuan Forest Resort" into the ring. As my guess.
I believe they are getting a couple of interesting Vekoma rides and its planned to open 2019 rather than Energylandias 2020 date. However its just another guess.

Oooo! I reckon this could be for Energylandia's Vekoma water coaster then! But where did it come from that Energylandia were building a Vekoma water coaster, because they already have an Intamin water coaster. Is it going to be like Vekoma's take on the Mack PowerSplash or something?

From what I've heard, they're funded by their government as well as a local radio station. Whatever they're doing it's working, cause these plans will definitely get me there sooner than later!

I can imagine a conversation in about 10 years' time between a park ordering a Vekoma roller coaster and Vekoma:
  • Park: Hello. I'd like to order a roller coaster, but I don't know what to buy.
  • Vekoma salesman: Just fly to Krakow in Poland, it's where our showroom is located. Energylandia doesn't know that but we're still calling it a showroom.

It's basically what Mack can do with Europa Park right?

Personally i dont think this is for Energylandia. While it may be a water coaster, The Energylandia one isnt due till 2020 and that awfully far in advance. No one ever said Energylandia would get the first water coaster from Vekoma though.

Disclaimer: I dont know anyone else is getting one its just an observation
