That's because unlike B&M, Intamin actually makes intense rides that really push the limit...

Kinda funny how you wrote Formula Rossa and Fahrenheit, when you were clearly talking about Maverick and I305..
Nr 1 Liseberg and Gröna Lund fanboy!
Piraten is *the* roller coaster (after finally riding Expedition Geforce, I'll admit, it was pretty freaking awesome to!) .

Stengel and bottom of 1st drop. That is going to be a total legchopper for those on the outside even though they will probably dig out some more of that hill.

That Stengel Dive looks really cool, and probably will be interesting to ride in those outer seats. I can't wait to see more of this ride pop up.

Go back a couple pages, I first said Mav and I305 and then someone mentioned Rossa and Fahrenheit and I mentioned them afterwards.
You may be, my lucky star! I'm the luckiest by far!

This lift hill enthusiast is not amused! Oh wait, there's two in the last picture. :p

The progress looks great, looking forward to more.
