Bit of an interesting move from a park- Walibi Holland has replaced the front rows on both of Condor's trains with two different types of cars. One has KumbaK seats, the other has Vekoma Vests. The rest of the rows are still going to have the horse collars. Here's a roughly translated Looopings article:
Hopefully this means that it'll get completely new trains within the next few years!The famous Condor rollercoaster in Walibi Holland has new carts. This can be seen on photos published on Facebook. In both trains of the suspended coaster the front tray was replaced by a new one. It is an experiment.
One new trolley was supplied by coaster builder Vekoma, the manufacturer of the Condor. The other comes from the factory KumbaK competitor, also a Dutch company. The test should reveal which of the two carts improves ritervaring.

Walibi is closed until April 14th. Last winter the pillars of the Condor are painted.
