This is great to see. They make Tophats out of box track right? I am hoping for a Maverick start and a Storm Runner finish. Go ahead and throw in a little Mega Liteish type stuff too please.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

Looks very Zac-Spinny to me. :P But I'm sure it'll be something more than that.

So, as an absolute amateur...I just like to add that the box design seems to be very solid, too. I mean VERY solid...at least it looks like !

I guess it wouldn`t be any problem using both track designs for a very fast coaster...just my assessment.

And yes, me too thinking that that box design looks much better. The whole projects looks VERY promising...but it`s too far away so I hate it... :lol:

I don't think that speed is an issue with the "box" style track, they are used on Kingda Ka and Top Thrill Dragster which both go 120mph+

Well, Flordia got Kumba, Williamsburg got Griffon. If that holds true, then I can see BGT getting the better ride. But I am with you one that one.


What? You mean Florida got ShiKra, Williamsburg got Griffin??

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

No, Kumba was a better project than Drachen Fire as they got the B&M, holy crap I just realized my post made no sense.... disregard...

BGT: 1993 Kumba, 1996 Montu, 1999 Gwazi, 2005 Sheikra, 2011 Cheetaka?
BGW:1992 Drachen Fire, 1997 Alpengeist, 1999 Apollo's Chariot, 2007 Griffon, 2012 ????

B&M was supposed to build a coaster for both parks in 92-93,they did build Kumba but opted out of building one for BGW,obviously BGT won out on that one but clearly lost in 1999 when BGW got Apollo and BGT got Gwazi.I don't hate Gwazi that much,I actually used to like it,but lately you're lucky if you don't break a rib on it and Apollo is one of my favorites at either park.
