    ^ I don't get it? Loads of coasters have turns into tunnels? Am I missing something here?

    ^ ^They might have refurbished the track, or it's a clone with new track, because I noticed that the crossties are straight instead of having a "Trench"

    This is in no way the same ride. The left one is still laying in pieces somewhere in Vegas...

    Why can't one of these be built closer to me?

    No, you're really not missing much. @AshleyScared noticed the resemblance, made the image(which I found to be rather funny), and I posted it here. I understand if you didn't find it as funny as I did.

    Anyway, the coaster looks awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing how the ride runs with a lift rather than a launch.

    ^ Ahh ok haha. The photo of Speed does look quite similar to be fair...
    This Vekoma is looking pretty great though!

    Small update which shows the Vekoma family inverted coaster is now complete.

    Ouch... that corkscrew entrance looks a bit painful... And would be if it had the old trains!

    On Formula 1 it's actually one of the best parts of the ride. Smooth and quite snappy fun!

    That corkscrew exit will probably ride brilliantly as this is New Vekoma we're talking about... if it were Old Vekoma, I could understand your worry. But New Vekoma apparently build lovely, smooth rides!

    On a side note, how tall is this Vekoma? Is it over 200ft, like a proper hyper coaster? Or is it more like mega-lite coaster height? I'm presuming the latter judging by the sort of scale Formula 1 is, but I just wanted to check.

    Thanks @ATI! I presumed it would be around that sort of area, but just wanted to clarify.

    Excuse the obnoxious music.
