The Mack suspended coaster

Wed May 23, 2012 7:45 pm

Looking at their main website, it appears that the company manufacture a suspended powered model. Has anyone ridden one of these before, and if so, how do they compare to the Vekoma and B&M versions?

They haven't built any yet, though Europa Park's next ride is apparently going to be one.  It will be a dark ride/coaster hybrid, so not really a particularly thrilling ride, but I have fairly high hopes for the concept.

A powered suspended doesn't compare in any way to a B&M coaster.

Very interesting! This was the first I'd heard about a Mack suspended coaster until today.
