The Flying Dutchman is a series of steel flying roller coasters produced by Vekoma. It is the first flying roller coaster to offer inversions and the first to feature trains capable of seating multiple people.
As of 2018 Vekoma is still offering the Flying Dutchman with a slightly different track layout and a new train design. Vekoma is currently designing a brand new flying roller coaster concept, F.L.Y. at Phantasialand.
Design[edit | edit source]
Both the 843m Prototype and the 1018m feature the same elements, except for the final two inversions and the fly to lie element: the prototype model featured the fly to lie before the double corkscrew, whereas the 1018m has a double in-line twist before a 540° helix and then the fly to lie element.
