Is this “Mack Maniac” related to the Roller Coaster Manufacturer Mack, Or are they two different Companies? One more question for discussions. I think people are starting to run out of ideas. What next? A heartline twist on a go kart track? regards Topazy.

Am I the only one that watched this and thought about all the loose change and crap in my car flying around while going through the loop?

Thx for pointing this out. The name simillarity totally got me. I did some digging and for the sake of completeness and to get some source in here, i found this official document from Europa Park about the rollercoaster restaurant.
Rollercoasters and Mack seem to be the perfect match. In 2009, Michael Mack (Strategic Business Management & Park Operation) worked together with the manufacturing company Mack Rides in Waldkirch/Germany to conceive the first rollercoaster with loop at Europa-Park, the “blue fire Megacoaster powered by GAZPROM”. Now, two years later, two more loops are constructed in Germany’s biggest theme park. And the initiator of this project is also called Michael Mack. However, this Michael Mack is the manager of HeineMack GmbH from Nürnberg/Germany and wants to transport food and drinks through his loops instead of persons, as it is usually the case at Mack Rides.
