New Vekoma Suspended Family Coaster Opens in Denmark

What a fun looking, zippy family coaster!  This is the Orkanen (Hurricane) at Farup Sommerland in Denmark, a brand new Vekoma designed Family Suspended Coaster.

As you can see in the video, the ride actually travels under a lagoon at the base of the first drop, which looks pretty neat.  The coaster's train keeps up a swift pace as it travels through the rest of the layout which includes several helices and another below grade tunnel. 

I can think of many parks that would benefit greatly from a ride like this - let's hope they take notice!  Thanks to CoasterClub Denmark for sending along the video!
