height of 34 metres. The ride is thus
perfect for parks with limited space and
those seeking something to fill in a gap
between existing structures. Its size also
makes Stingray ideal for use as an
indoor coaster. In this case parks have
a wide range of themes to choose from.
The Stingray is Vekoma's reinterpretation of the Flying Dutchman, Holland's
lay-down rollercoaster. Every carriage
is fitted with four seats; depending on
the customer's wishes, the train can be
shortened to two or three carriages.
This ensures a smooth journey through
the ups and downs of the ride. Two
trains have a maximum hourly capacity
of 525 passengers, which can be
increased up to 785 with three trains.

Suspended Family Coaster: Die neueste Generation der Familien freundlichen Version von
Vekoma bietet ein überaus sanftes Fahrgefühl
bei höchst möglicher Sicherheit.

Aber auch die Weiterentwicklung von
bestehenden Produkten hat eine hohe Priorität. So wurden neue Rückhaltesysteme
für bestehende Loopingbahnen entwickelt. Moreys Pier testete 2007 die
neuartigen Westen, die die starren Bügel
ersetzen, ausführlich und war begeistert.
Noch während der IAAPA in Orlando
erklärte Vekoma gegenüber EAP, dass
zur Saison 2008 alle Sitze des SLC mit
den neuen Westen ausgestattet werden.
Zahlreiche Parks haben die Nachrüstung
schon auf der Agenda stehen. Qualitativ
hochwertige Innovationen und die bis ins
Jahr 2009 reichende Auftragslage versprechen Vekoma eine spannende Zukunft.

creation is called Stingray and was
presented at the IAAPA 2007 in Orlando.
Stingray's most striking feature is that a
large amount of track can be squeezed
into a very small area: 370 metres of
track can be accommodated within an
area of just 37.6 x 59.9 metres at a total

Certain details of the Stingray trains are
enhancements. The trains are not immediately reclined after the passengers get
on board; the seats are only tilted into
the horizontal position during the
upward ride on the 90-degree steep lift.
This gives passengers the opportunity to
enjoy the view of the magnificent surroundings during their ascent. In addition, improved vests have been designed
to secure the passengers in their seats.
The potential for diagnosing malfunctions has also been optimised thanks to
a user-friendly computer which is linked
via the Internet to the factory back in
Vlodrop.
