I agree on that, they arent that good as the ones about 5 years ago, but intamin seems to be competing against them and building more and better coasters. I wonder if B&M will build a 400ft coaster?[/quote]
I remember reading something once that B&M doesn't see a reason to go above the 300 foot mark. I'm sure once a park wants it and has the pockets deep enough to pay for it they will without hesitation! I wonder how much a 300 foot B&M would cost compared to Intamin... Anyone know how much did NITRO cost?
The Immelman looks HUGE. I was amazed at the Carousel curve when I saw it back in Jan. Have to get back there soon.
The 2nd drop is completed and now the first drop is being worked on. Expect this thing to be done next Friday, all there is left to do is the ending helix, drop, and MCBR. But the 2nd drop isn't exactly vertical, nor does it look like 87.5 degrees. Oh well, check it out anyways.
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.
I doubt that will ever happen. B&M have this thing about launched coasters or building coasters over 300ft high. Shame really. If anything it gives Intamin the advantage in the market for high and fast coasters.

May I ask you, is the three current highest rollercoasters, Top Thrill Dragster, Kingda Ka and Superman the Escape, by any means the best coasters? I'd rather have B&M return to their roots and build awesome intense coaster, perhaps only 13 m. of the ground, rather than those huge one-trick ponnies.
Or is that just me?
You must also consider that working as high up as for example Top Thrill Dragster, you are much more in danger of errors. I've personally never heard anyone going to Holiday Park and saying that Expedition GeForce was out the entire day with no excuses from staff...
