Quimera accident, La Feria Chapultepec closure, Montana Russa removal, etc.

While sad to see the classic woodie go it’s good that they plan to put something in, it may just be a family coaster but it’s a unique family duelling boomerang which is a good start.

Hopefully they get something bigger from Vekoma in the future......but I doubt it.

Both coasters seem to be clones of Saven

Ahh I can see now the sit down being a clone but from roomraiders image the blue coaster looks like it weaves around the sit down so I don’t think that is a clone, and it’s also inverted.

Still though it’s the only sit down and inverted duelling shuttle family coaster I have seen, so I guess it’s semi-unique ? I also hope to see Vekoma do more family inverted shuttle coaster as Im pretty sure that the first one.

I love the enthusiasm for such a s**t replacement for an excellent coaster. Sure, it's better than nothing, but that's about the only positive here.

And with one fell swoop, the planet loses 1/3 of its remaining mobius-tracked wooden racing coasters.

That statement sounds more dramatic than it really is, as there were only 3 of them left to begin with:

1. Racer - Kennywood: 1927 - present
2. Grand National - Blackpool: 1935 - present
3. Montana Rusa - La Feria Chapultepec: 1964 - 2021 (SBNO since 2019)


It's always sad to see a big old wooden classic meet its end, especially one that I never got a chance to ride.
