The Mysterious Yellow B&M!

Postby robbalvey » Fri Jan 23, 2009 6:27 pm

Hey everyone!

Today I got a very interesting email from a TPR reader. Seems there is some yellow track sitting outside the B&M plant in Ohio, but no one knows exactly what this could be or for what park.

Have a look at the pictures below and see if anyone has some ideas....

Here is the email I got:

Hey TPR,

I was strolling by the B&M Plant and was quick to my camera when I saw LOTS of yellow B&M track sitting out front.

I was not aware of any new B&M's being built for the 2009 season besides, Diamondback, Manta, and that Dive Coaster. So I'm a bit confused as to where this track may be going.

So maybe this is new track for 2010 season??

I have LOTS of pics to share with you and you can put them on your site to see if anyone has details as to where these pieces might be going.
Judging by the pics, it looks like there are some inversion pieces.


Thanks


Hmm...any guesses?

ADMIN EDIT: The Mysterious Yellow B&M ended up going to Ocean Park in China to be built as the floorless coaster, Hair Raiser. To see more on this coaster and other aspects of Ocean Park, visit the Ocean Park Discussion Thread!

Does Diamondback have all of its parts? Maybe they are transfer tracks or something?

It's rumored to go to Carowinds for 2010, I don't believe it too much though. It's supposed to be either a floorless or sit down also.

This isn't even close to Diamondback's colors:

I heard that Dreamworld in Australia was getting a B&M. Considering Australian parks can open there rides anytime during the year. (due to the fact there open year round). It makes "some" sense.
But. It really is only a rumour. It could just be some spare track.

I know. It was a far fetch guess. Maybe they would paint it or something. Plus, if its a transfer track, it might be another color.

This seems an awful lot for "spare track"...

Interesting. The track looks too small to be a dive machine, but I don't know about a flyer. This may be a basic sit-down or floorless coaster and somehow the track makes me think that the coaster will have an insect-like name like Hornet.

SW6 at Alton Towers? They would need a substantial ammount of time to build it as well as ship it to the UK.
