^^If you go on a weekday, the crowds shouldn't be too bad, even during spring break. Ride DarKastle first thing, then the Big Bad Wolf and Alpengeist. Take the train to Festa Italia after that for Apollo's Chariot. You should be able to pick up the Loch Ness Monster easily any time of the day.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^I agree with what cfc said, but just remember that Big Bad Wolf may not be open till 11:00am.

^ Up there somewhere...
Phishy, I love the new avatar! Heyseuss!

Dive Machine, halfpipe, who cares what it is? At 210 feet, it should be a great addition to a nice collection of coasters. It's been way too long since Apollo opened.

Busch doesn't go the way of the Intamin. I think Busch and B&M have some kind of exclusive contract in place since Kumba was built.
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

^ I think the only Intamin that any busch park owns is the Phenox at BGT. But I think another dive machine would be awsome for the US. They should have enough knoledge about what it can do now to add maybe a vertical loop or a zero-G-roll or something. It would also me cool if it hugged the ground a little more than SheiKra does, as those wide trains would look pretty cool 3 feet of the ground. But who knows, it could be a rocket for all we know!

^ Actually, I believe that Intamin built Escape from Pompeii as well.

Since 96, Busch has built 5 B&M's, 3 Macks, 1 Morgan, and 1 GCI. Oh and I believe Vekoma helped build Rhino Rally. Also 1 Zierer kiddie coaster.

I too believe that a B&M Dive Machine is the answer. I thought for sure it would be a flyer but at 210' it's probably a shade too tall for the area that is proposed. A DM's steeper lift hill and drop will make it easier to fit it in.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Well, since this ride is going to take up only 5000sq feet, then I don't see anything else fitting in there besides a dive machine.

I love donkeys more than me.
