My current favorite vekoma is expedition Everest because of the awesome theming but the top gun and firestorm/enigma models in Europe and Asia look cool

I tried ranking my favourite coasters recently, got to about the top 35 and gave up because it all became such a blur. And even then I wasn't completely happy with the 35. Anyway, point is, not a single Vekoma even came up for consideration. Not one.
Technically then, I don't have a favourite Vekoma. I've never ridden one that I considered good enough to be worth ranking. Which is weird, because they're my most ridden manufacturer and on the whole I'm generally quite fond of 'em.
If I had to choose, like, if I had a gun at my head and had to pick one, I'd probably go for Expedition Everest. Or one of the Big Thunder Mountains. Or possibly one of the Rock n Roller Coasters.

No... wait, Goudurix. I'd pick Goudurix. Just for the crack. :p

There’s a fair few more that I enjoy... lots more that are pretty mediocre... and also plenty more that suck... that’s Vekoma for you right now, but as everyone knows they are improving. Even Formula, which I found to be forceless and hence, fairly dull, flowed as seemlessly as any RMC.

Lech with Formula not too far behind, really excited to see what else they build in the future, they could well be stepping back into the top manufacturer club in the near future.

Uhh… Nighthawk?

It's either that or I go with one of the family suspended coasters.

No really, I thought it was a pretty decent ride. Besides the lift hill and brake run, I didn't find it that offensive. It's a decent layout with some pretty intense inversions.

1) Thundercoaster
2) Tron

Those are the only two that really stand out so far from what I've done. Will hopefully add FLY, Lech, Formula, Abyssus, and Tripsdrill's two new coasters next year though if all goes well!

Imo none of these coasters is bad and I've never experienced any suffering on Vekoma coasters
Next year will probably add Abyssus and FLY to this list
