Maybe they're bringing the swinging/suspended back?

I love donkeys more than me.

^Would love to see a return of the suspended swinging coasters. That track looks interesting in its shaping, i.e. no spine like the old Vekoma track had.

A lot of the newer Vekoma styles have a square lift hill then spined track with outside rails similar to premier.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Good call! At first I thought it was a new track style, but it looks similar to what is found on the current family suspended coasters.
