Steel Lasso

Vekoma built seven Suspended Family Coaster (342m) models: Bat, Escape from Madagascar, Flying ACE Aerial Chase at Carowinds, Flying ACE Aerial Chase at Kings Island, Flying School (which used to be the Swamp Thing at Cypress Gardens), Silver Streak, and Swamp Thing.  Three Suspended Family Coaster (395m) versions were built between 2007 and 2014:  Freedom Flyer at the Fun Spot America in Florida (pictures coming soon), Kvasten, and the Suspended Children's Roller Coaster at the Children's Grand Park in South Korea.  At the moment, there is one SFC (453m) model, the Orkanen at FĂ„rup Sommerland, but a second one is expected to open in 2015.

Vekoma also built one "Splash Party" ride, the Bandit Bomber at Yas Waterworld in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.  It is similar to the Suspended Family Coasters, but instead of one long train, it runs with seven 4-passenger cars.  Each seat comes with a bunch of water that can be dropped from the car, and on-board laser guns trigger effects on the ground like water jets and a waterfall.
