Tayto Park

Recommended Posts

Excuse my ignorance. Suspended Thrill Coaster? As in Vampire style swinging cars, but with inversion? Or is it a name for what is really an inverted coaster?

Given their non swinging family coasters are called Suspended Family Coasters I'm assuming it's the latter. This is still great news as I love SFCs and Vekoma's latest non SLC/ boomerang output has been great.

I'm pretty sure its a new gen of SLC's, so no swinging.

I'm guessing they dropped the name SLC due to their reputation, hopefully this new name solidifies that Vekoma are now a company who are far past head smashing machines.

 

I think this is a great fit for Tayto, Vekoma right now are really on the up so working with them for a major thrill ride is a smart decision, its probably a more affordable option too.

So Tayto Park ultimately decided to put in a set of new plans for the combined coasters, which they hope to open in 2021. Plans can be seen here: http://www.eplanning.ie/MeathCC/AppFileRefDetails/AA191588/0

 

They're still going for a Vekoma Suspended Thrill Coaster (STC) and Family Boomerang combo that are intertwined, but have made some minor changes, including a shorter and rather different STC. Main stats:

 

STC:
Length: 728m
Max speed: 80kph (~50mph)
Height: 31m
Duration: 99secs

Boomerang:
Length: 244m
Max speed: 58kph (~36mph)
Height: 21.8m
Duration: 70sec

 

The coasters that were originally planned for Tayto are ending up at Tripsdrill and opening next year (something which was apparently rumoured to happen before all this happened).

 

Hopefully this is enough to convince the council of approving it, and it looks like it'd be a decent investment for the park!

Someone should develop an LSM lift hill to prevent chain noise.
