Something for the diehards

Talk about anything that has to do with the amusement park industry here.

Can someone just convince Vekoma to re-design the Arrow Mega Loopers. I'm sure those blueprints are still around.The designers could just smooth out some of the rough spots and they can rule the skylines once again.

#greatamericanscreammachine #shockwave.

Lets give the fans what they want. hahaha

What do ya'll think?

I mean, I guess if a park wanted one they could ask, but there doesn't seem to be any demand. Vekoma seems to be working towards a new genre of looping coasters and hypers, so I really can't see them making something like Shockwave or GASM right now.

I guess if you really think about it has a ride ever made a comeback?

I agree with Justin. It is possible for rides to make comebacks, and, I do think if a park asked for it Vekoma would do it, but I just can't really see a park asking for a mega-looper, especially with the newest offerings Vekoma has brought to the table recently

Plus I think Vekoma burned Six Flags too much with the last additions unless Vekoma offered them a 2 for 1 offer.
